Default Children Dressing Up For Thanksgiving Is Racist Now?

I'm probably gonna get trounced for this but to me this is a serious question. I would like to hear from our members who are NA.

I remember when I was in grade school doing this for Thanksgiving and I didn't hear anything back then about it being considered racist. I was a child, I was learning about the NA and pilgrims coming together to celebrate surviving that first bad winter and following year they were on american soil and surviving with help from the friendly native americans. I thought it was cool and fun.

I understand the NA think some things can be bad like wearing the face paint and people not knowing what all the differences on some tribes not living in teepees and being nomadic. Basically not learning anything about NA and just thinking they were all the same. I get that but why can't children just be able to be children and not have to worry about real life while they're so young.

Just makes me sad.

Both my 5 and 6 year old Granddaughters got off of the school bus last Friday dressed up. My 5 year old was dressed as Native American and was really proud of her costume and my 6 year old was dressed as a pilgrim and was just as proud of her costume. For the children it has nothing to do with racism, it is the fun and the spirit of the holiday. It is only in the minds of adults that it becomes a racist issue. And I know for sure that both of my granddaughters are not racist because we have taught them that it is wrong to judge a person based on the color of their skin and too they have a bi-racial sister from their mother's previous marriage.

I am part NA (small part, great grandmother was 1/2 Cherokee) and I don't care what your kids dress up as. I would prefer they be taught the real story of how Native Americans were treated but that should probably wait until they are older and can better understand the rights and wrongs of those times.

If they were dressing up like the Pilgrims, they probably had it wrong. The Pilgrims were Separatists, not Puritans and wore bright colors like purple not black and white.

Your thread title is a bit dramatic compared to the article you posted. My kindergartner was dressed as a Wampanoag on Friday at school. In "Kommieforina" too. OMG!

I think learning more about Native Americans is much overdue. Especially the part where some of them owned African slaves and all of the brutal and inhumane acts they used on other tribes.

I think weíve gone way too far with this. Even a libtard like me thinks we all need to lighten up. I understand that itís wrong to go blackface. Thatís a given. But I believe that having kids dress up in costume and role playing to learn history helps them learn. And itís fun. When I was a kid we used to have a May Day celebration. We all dressed up in costumes from different cultures and learned a dance from that country. It was a celebration of different peoples and we had fun learning.

How in the hell is the title a "bit dramatic?" That is the basically about what the story was about. A woman, whether she is NA or any other color was talking about how racist it was for kids and how the school board took it and just cancelled the whole event because of it.

If you don't like what I have to say then don't read my posts. Simple as that.

Why would you be trounced for stating the truth ? We live in insane times where truth and open discussion are frowned upon. Since this site was sold there has been a discernible shift in what is "acceptable" to post and discuss. Hope a Soros linked group didnt buy this site in order to censor and purposely run it into the ground.

good post but I disagree about the blackface thing. What is wrong about dressing up as someone who may be a different race and going all out? To liberals it would be ok for a black person to dress up as a white person but not vice versa. If I want to dress up as Dr Dre for Halloween or a party or something why is it wrong to go all out? Its not like I am making fun of black skin or any other race/religion/etc...I am HONERING them by trying to be like them for a brief period. But, I am glad as a liberal you at least see how most of this PC stuff is getting way out of hand.

Ohh, and while I am on it, if its "racist" to dress up as anything other than yourself, then ALL transgender people are "racists" for dressing up as the opposite sex. [email protected]

Objective historical debate is verboten these days ! The official line is that the White Man is responsible for slavery and every atrocity the hateful leftist claims we are responsible for. Forget the fact that slavery has been present since the dawn of human recorded history.

The Egyptians, Babylonians, Chinese Assyrians, Persians, Etc etc well preceded the modern European society and practiced slavery ! Oddly enough, it was the White man that ended slavery. So tired of the BS and that everything is RASCIST !

PK - "My illegal BRAT neighbor's kids were trying to order my cats around and dressing up as cats which is racist, but luckily they only listen to my instructions in English and Spanish until my husband tried to teach them the slur language, but they only listen to me (ohh, he is in a wheelchair mind you, and blind as well, but I take care of him even picking him up when he runs into a wall)"

If it is a traditional observance the left is quick to tell you it's either cultural appropriation or racist. The left doesn't have the moral authority to be telling anyone how they should or should not behave...

I'm not sure why you care that it bothers someone.

If it's an employer telling you how to dress, sure, that matters.

If it's the school telling you how your children can dress at school, sure, that matters.

If it's just some Yahoo on Yahoo or a triggered unrelated passerby with no authority over you, why even consider their feelings?

Racist people wont hesitate to call anyone else racist. If schools ignored the history of the Thanksgiving feast they would claim it was a racist effort to ignore the future transgressions. If the school didn't have a native American to play the part they would say it is racist for anyone else to dress up to honor the part.

I suppose if a school had an Italian Pride day I could call racism if they didn't have an Italian to serve the cannoli's. If a bar had a St Patricks Day party an Irishman could call racism is the bar was owned by a native American. If a Christian church had a nativity scene the world could scream racism if they didn't have a Jewish baby, Joseph, and Mary. I fear to think of what would happen if the lady portraying Mary wasn't a virgin.

Racist people calling people racist is disgusting.
