Thanksgiving is the best holiday we have in the United States. It is inclusive, it involves giving thanks and is traditionally celebrated with food, friends and family and even watching sporting events. It is non-religious so you can feel comfortable wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving and not have to couch it with an "if you celebrate it." Not really sure how or why anyone would criticize this day.
The racist Quackquack keeps showing that he's an ethnocentric white American.
On 25 November 2015 (last Thanksgiving in the USA) at the Huffington Post, Marianne
Smallwood (an Asian woman married to a white Frenchman) wrote that her family are
happy *not* to celebrate Thanksgiving and to treat it like an ordinary day.
Some Americans take an understandably much more negative view of Thanksgiving.
"Thanksgiving: a Day of Mourning"
"...most (American) children do not know these following facts, which explain why many
*American Indians today call Thanksgiving a 'Day of Mourning'".
"It is a day of remembrance and spiritual connection as well as a protest of the racism
and oppression which Native Americans [not white people] continue to experience."
I expect some, if not many, racist writers here don't object to the genocide of non-white peoples.
Racism runs very deep and wide in this forum.
All that I can say to these racists is that it may be harder for white people to commit
genocide against non-white people in the 21st century than it was in an earlier century
not so much because white people have become much more morally aware that genocide
is wrong but because non-white people will be stronger at resisting efforts to kill them all.
