12. As a native (chichimec/apache) I don't see how you define the op's point as bigotry.
Edited on Mon Nov-23-09 12:30 PM by Xicano
I know I don't celebrate thanksgiving by eating genetically modified turkeys to celebrate the genocide and holocaust of my deceased relatives. I still spend the day with my family and have a good time, BUT, its not in the context of celebrating genocide and culturalcide.

I fail to see how not celebrating something that symbolizes a false truth as being something bigoted. Rather I see it as being faithful to the truth, and if you're native as being faithful to your family instead of forsaking them.


Peace,
Xicano
