BlackCommentator: Thanksgiving Issue


November 25, 2010

Friends & Comrades,

In accordance with the policy of The Black Commentator re the U.S. celebration known as 'Thanksgiving,' this issue is dedicated entirely to articles by Indigenous Native people, and also includes a poignant political cartoon on the subject. Some examples contained in this issue are shown below:

1. Click on BC: Political Cartoon - The Spoils of War on The Holiday Table

2. Click on BC Cover Story: The Thanksgiving Myth - Mistakes, Lies & Misconceptions About American Indian People

3. Click on BC - Thanksgiving: The National Day of Mourning (Text of 1970 Speech by Wampsutta)

It is also with urgency and respect that I make a plea that we actively remember the many political prisoners, particularly those being held by this avaricious and hypocritical U.S. government, including Leonard Peltier, Mumia Abu-Jamal, and Lynne Stewart.

The Black Commentator's regular format will resume in our next issue.

Onward! Stay strong & vigilant...

In struggle,
