Anonymous asked: Can you explain the politics around the massacre of the Native Americans? I'm writing a paper on how our perspective is affected by learning about events that are censored by our history.

I would have if you wouldn’t have just said you were writing a paper. 

Go do your own research, anon. I’m not doing your homework for you. That’s called “cheating” and it’s goddamned unethical. I’m insulted you think I would naïvely write an explanation you can simply lift as your own.

This is all you get.

Now, shoo. You’ve got work to do.

Cheers,

Meg
