The slow-motion massacre

Good posting in Pictographs comparing the destruction of cultures and languages to physical massacres. Key quote:[T]he massacres that started in 1492 are still happening today. They are hitting right at the heart of us, of who we are, because they are attacking our languages and our culture. The slow-motion massacre is occurring in curricula, it's occurring in media, it's occurring in the books that we read, it's occurring in the loss of our languages.
