    That does not make sense. How is GW connected to the 4th of July?

    July 4th doesn't celebrate George Washington, but I'm down for ending Presidents' Day if you are.

    Maybe add a winter Labor Day.

    So did they. You don't think it's Aztecs the Aztecs are sacrificing do you?

    Again, this isn't relevant. Your argument is equivalent to saying that slavery was justified because some Africans were guilty of murder.

    July 4th, aka independence day. Some say George Washington had something to do with that.

    July 4, 1776
    Independence Day, also referred to as the Fourth of July or July Fourth, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.

    A tv host had to bring her kid to work because her kids daycare was closed. That is how much people know today was CC Day. No one gives a shit.


    The Knights of Columbus dont even have a spaghetti dinner anymore. ...or if they do, its not a big event like years ago

    Hardly. Your pictures are of Spaniards mistreating "native americans" not "Africans."

    BTW, one of them shows Spaniards are eating indians. I'm guessing the Spaniards are guilty of much but cannibalism wasn't one of them.
