What the fuck yall, what the actual fuck.
What the fuck yall, what the actual fuck.

Ok, I wasn’t gonna write this, cuz I genuinely thought no one would be proud of this, but boooooy was I wrong lol.

Also let me be clear, this is not a callout of the native folx who participated in this, because clearly this is a system wide cultural thing happening here, and also I am on the side of all Native people forever, cuz my liberation is their liberation.
Also, I love giant balloons, so don’t @ me.

Shout out to capitalism y’all.

That said, a land acknowledgment at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade is about as useful as A LAND ACKNOWLEDGMENT AT THE MACYS THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE.

“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past. Please enjoy the parade.” -1984

There is nothing more dystopic than eight Native Americans doing a land acknowledgment on national television with a gargantuan turkey in a pilgrim hat looming overhead, like some scene out of “Brazil.” This is some “1984” shit y’all, with a giant turkey as Big Brother.
