    Now, now let me slowly explain this. The Pilgrims became the Boston Red Sox's and at October they met the Indian tribe from Cleveland.....at first they had their differences until The Damn Yankees came and restored order for many years to come.
    Thats basically how Thanksgiving began.

    A movie quote, and one that is fairly stupid.

    The book "Malcom X," is very insightul.

    The movie is terrible.


    And remember that the African blacks were involved in the slave trade, which was and is, descpicable.

    There is nothing more stupid that people using movie quotes in historical discussions.
    It's an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increasing the debt We've stopped spending money that we don't have.

    you can take it like this: the black man didnt come(land) here(Plymouth Rock). the white man went (landed) in africa and took slaves and brought them back home(Plymouth rock).


    They didnt have a choice, follow?

    ^ The quote is understood, but it's still a movie quote and it's stupid.

    It's an excuse to do nothing useful or take self-responsibility. It means that, "Life isn't fair, so I'll blame anyone but myself."

    Slavery is not dead, just less recognizable.

    Today, 27 million people are enslaved, more than at the height of the transatlantic slave trade.

    By Susan Llewelyn Leach | Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor

    Slaves are cheap these days. Their price is the lowest it's been in about 4,000 years. And right now the world has a glut of human slaves - 27 million by conservative estimates and more than at any time in human history.
