If America stands today as a free country, it's because of those Americans who sacrificed their lives fighting against the redcoats. But there is another side of American history which is not taught in schools. And it's the bitter side of the story, so brace for it. The only reason the country called America even exists is because the native americans who were living in the land for a long time before the pilgrims arrived here from Europe, couldn't organize a large and strong enough uprising to fight them away from their land. This is more reason for each person of this sweet land of liberty to practice assimilation not segregation--this is more reason for each of us to come to the aid of the oppressed and segregated--this is more reason for each of us to stand upright against discrimination, narcissism, prejudice and sectarianism. ~~ Abhijit Naskar
