    Don’t be a hypocrite, Cuco.

    This day does not mark the conquest of native Americans. Columbus Day is a horrible day to celebrate, but most cultures have some form of a day to give thanks for the harvest or the bounty they enjoy. The whole pilgrim story is an overlay with a lot of inaccuracy wrapped around it, but even it has nothing to do with conquest. Lalo, you can, with a clear conscience, leave Thanksgiving alone.

    Funny, a cartoonist with a Spanish name complaining about the conquest of native Americans. What’s next self-flagellation?

    The weak will always be conquered by the strong. Only in modern times has man gotten fat enough to wail away about the poor poor defeated. Give me a break.

    Can’t wait to hear what he says when China replaces the USA as #1 world power.

    Mexicans have Native American heritage , also. The darker-skinned ones have Indian blood, the fairer-skinned ones, more Spanish. They are called Mestizos. Get your facts straight, Olongapojoe.

    “Columbus Day is a horrible day to celebrate…”
    Ever see Columbus as depicted by Spain Rodriguez? He shows CC as a “muwa-ha-ha” villain.

    Columbus was a man of his time. Judging a man’s behavior from 500 years distance is foolish. We’d be better off working together to fix our current problems without dwelling on the ancient past.

    We should understand the past for what it was without lies, then move toward a better future together..

    China may replace the USA, but not for some time yet. (At least they don’t pretend they are for freedom.)

    well. i think the reason to celebrate it is because it embodies the spirit of cooperation. true, that’s not what ended up happening, but to me that has always been the spirit of the holiday. plus there are traditional harvest/season feasts/celebration around this time of year from many other cultural backgrounds. you can have “thanksgiving” without the american/colonial aspect. Unlike Columbus day – that’s just all messed up.

    I agree. All the recriminations do not educate children or teach self respect.

    Actually, all the liberal comments are positive and forward-thinking. It appears all the cons are miserable, unhappy and upset. But you know that. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, also!
