    I bet the Indians wished now they would've let those pilgrims starve.

    Since the Afrocentric movement of the 70s, it has been a constant tradition among professional class Blacks, in Brooklyn,
    to put a sheave of dried corn on their entrance way door , from November 1 to the 30th
    as a sign of respect and honor to the First Americans who had lost their lives and homes there.

    Brother Dr Jack Felder, was a regular at the UAM meetings, the Patrice Lumumba Coalition and the African Street festival, and the honored author of
    a book that explained why those of us of African descent should not celebrate


    what he called

    Misgiving Day

    Should African Americans celebrate America's Misgivings Day?

    Commentary

    After reading these historical facts you will be able to make up your own mind. July 30th, 1621, was the day that a thanksgiving was proposed for the celebration of the survival of the English colonialists through their first bitter winter.

    The winter had been so severe that it destroyed half of the colonists. In the autumn of 1621, Governor Bradford of Massachusetts issued a proclamation calling for a thanksgiving celebration feast to commemorate the gathering of the first harvest. The local Native Americans were invited to join in and even brought some dishes to the celebration.

    The million-dollar question for African-Americans is-where and what were you on the first celebration? African people were enslaved in the American colonies in 1619. In this same year, a Dutch ship brought 20 Africans to the Jamestown, Va., colony to be enslaved.

    Black people should read "The Mis-Education of the Negro" by Carter G. Woodson in order to understand the world they have been duped into believing is theirs. All people create their own religions with Gods and Goddesses that look like them. They also create their own holy-days (holidays) that reflect important events in their histories.

    America is controlling what Black people think by controlling different aspects of Black people's fives through holidays that have nothing to do with their triumphs or holocausts. Here are a few examples:

    Christmas-your religion and economics (gift giving)

    Easter-your dress (economics)

    New Years-your time

    Valentine's Day-your love life and sex life

    Thanksgiving-your eating

    Labor Day-your work habits

    Mother's and Father's day-your family life

    How many Black people will send longtime community activist Alton Maddox a Father's Day card or 18-year-old Khiel Coppin's mother a Mother's Day card or even Sean Bell's mother a Mother's Day card? The answer is probably NONE. Why? Because sub-consciously they know that white Americans would not like this, just as most Black churches reject the idea of hoisting the image of a Black Jesus in their churches because of this same psychological fright that Blacks harbor.
