Geez...this shit gets old...shoulda either had tuffer immigration laws or killed them off or let them all starve n freeze to begin with.
I know. This has bothered me since I was a child. Not the sexy ladies, but all references to a people and a culture as if they were a cartoon.
Their WHOLE page is insulting...but I can only concern myself with the part that is disrespective to Native people...I don't have time to educate the ignorant on manners and disrespect...
I have seen lots of these posters for Thanksgiving parties on Facebook these days. I wouldn't have thought so many people were that racist, stupid, and VULGAR. These posters are such a bad taste! It is both shameful and pitiful! :(
Besides the disrespect for Native people I would like to know, what Thanksgiving has to do with only drinking and partying, the deeper meaning is completely lost...
But one woman named Denise tried to defend the posting:
You're wrong, Denise. Neither the Cherokee nor any other tribe dressed like sexy Indian princesses. You're stereotyping Native women as sex objects and setting them up to be victims of sexual crimes.
After deleting critical comments on their Facebook page, the Drink people soon backed down and posted an apology:
Nevertheless, people kept making naive and ignorant comments:
It doesn't make sense why ppl are offended? If u are Native American why wouldn't u be proud a club is honoring u? That is what Thanksgiving is right? If they had a St. Patrick's day event should Irish ppl be offended?
I asked Drink a question:
Are you canceling the event? It's not clear.
To which they responded:
The club was "honoring" a false and stereotypical version of Native Americans, not real Native Americans.
Have a great party without the offensive theme!
