    The first Thanksgiving that is often referred to with Chief Mossiqoit (SP?) and his tribe and the first colonists was a celebration of making it through the summer with enough food storage to provide for the winter months to survive until spring. Although there are some religions that try to say it was only by the grace of their God it was the effort of people that made their survival possible and the opportunity to prosper and have more than enough in the future.
    I find nothing wrong in celebrating a successful year and planning for the next. How that can be construed as racist is not comprehensible. It provides an opportunity to plan a celebration with family and friends and enjoy our relationships.

      And that celebration came only after the failure of Commune ism and the successful adoption of: Take care of one's self and family first and if you should have abundance and are willing...go ahead share and celebrate with others.

      There was never a bond as great as the bond between the pilgrims and the Indians.

      If postmodernist could read, and read history, they wouldn't be post modernist.

        YES! What most people don't know is that - like Jamestown - the original settlers in Massachusetts were there as part of an English-sponsored immigration project. The sponsors of the project (a business group - not a religious one interestingly enough) espoused communist ideals and made it a policy point that everyone had to share what they had with everyone else. The first two years were horrendous and the entire settlement was about to die. Then they changed the policies and allowed everyone to keep what they produced. That season everyone had enough and to spare for the next year. Thanksgiving is actually an anti-communist holiday (ironic that May Day is almost six months opposite, eh?).

        Thanks for kick-starting my fading memory of that commune experiment.
        It shared the outcome of modern day Venezuela until they tried something more capitalistic.
        Venezuela, are you listening?

            I did! Spent it with all my grown kids, grandkids and assorted daughter-in-law in-law relatives.
            I was even given a four-wheeler ride through the woods on my stepson's woodsy 9 acres of recently purchased property where he has a deer stand. There's even a little waterfall in there!
            Hope you had a great thanksgiving too.

              Even though I had to work this evening, I did manage to have some turkey and fixins with the old women...and pups, before I left.
              You might say, we successfully made the best of the situation.

                I've been making the best of Thanksgiving situations.
                Last year to keep from driving back from a ex-in-law relative's house (huge group of people there--too huge) sleepy on a full stomach for a long dreary full hour, last year I baked my own fifth or sixth turkey of my 71 years. All that baking has been for simply following directions done well--but it is now a bunch of bother for this old dino!
                For this year, I learned of a deli that served Thanksgiving dinners on Thanksgiving and was going to try that out.
                But then my son told me that a big (not huge) Thanksgiving dinner was to be held either at my stepson's or my daughter's house.
                The roomiest place was soon thereafter chosen.
                Appears a new tradition has begun. Yay!
                Today I napped for 2 hours after my son drove me home on a 20-minute drive. Win-win! Double yay!

    It's embarrassing how stupid this remark is! We celebrate Thanksgiving offering thanks for our survival and celebrating with our families. It is a time of forgiveness. I know it is, my family was there for the first one! In the Colonies!

    My goodness. Thanksgiving is as racist as Ana Navarro and Jeff Flake are Republicans. Also as racist as Rachel Dolezal is Black and senator elect Sinema is moderate.
    Thanksgiving is a day to be grateful to God for your blessings the past year. Even if you don't believe in God, it's a day of gratefulness for your family, friends, your home, job, nation and health. We should have a thanksgiving day more often during the year. Like our founding fathers who celebrated many days of gratefulness during the year.

      I had to delete a comment to your comment about the past. It seems to have removed your comment also. Sorry.

        Same goes for slavery where the past would be different for nearly everyone's parents and the parents would have had different pasts, etc. So is very unlikely that one's parents, if they had even existed, would not have had conceived a person who now exists. It would seem that similar sperm and ova produce very dissimilar children due to gene shuffling and is very dependent on when and which sperm fertilizes the ovum. Then add in all the experience the person gets growing up, there is hardly any chance for any of us to then exist. The wish that the past had been different is the same as wishing that one does not exist. Of course, large numbers of people believe that a god instills ready made souls into bodies as some kind of ghost in the machine so that one will exist in a different body.
        This not to say that slavery was good, but should not be practiced ever again. Ideas of reparations make no sense because the reparation from slavery is the life of the now existing person. Hope that does not sound racist.

    Post Modernist say and think the darnedest things!

    If Art Linkletter was still around that is exactly what he would say.

    ...and we'd all have a laugh at their expense.

    "Most students who spoke with the Daily Caller News Foundation at American University believe Thanksgiving is a racist holiday."

    It is not surprising the snowflakes parrot what they hear in class.

    Christmas is already gone in name, now it is "Holiday Season". Thankfully most people still celebrate it as the birth of Christ, even though Muslims detest it. In a few years it'll be gone.

    Now they are after Thanksgiving. The snowflakes don't care. They never had to defend country or fight for it, never put in a good days work, or never understood what it means to love your country.

    It is not difficult to see how their children will grow up under their "guidance". Only a catastrophe shaking their lives would wake them up, if only that.
