On Saturday’s The Cross Connection, race-obsessed MSNBC host Tiffany Cross served up the type of vitriol in opposition to white People that common viewers of the present have come to anticipate as she allowed a frequent visitor to ship a rant in opposition to America — and white People, specifically — to mark the upcoming Thanksgiving vacation.

 After lauding liberal Native American activist Gyasi Ross as a “present favourite,” she then switched to what seemed to be a pre-recorded “essay” from him together with his ideas in regards to the vacation. MSNBC then does not must take the duty of questioning his inflammatory arguments.

Ross started by claiming that it’s a “pathology of white America” to see their ancestors as bettering North America after they arrived, he then added: “However I am nonetheless looking for out what indigenous folks acquired of worth. As a substitute of bringing stuffing and biscuits, these settlers introduced genocide and violence.”

Ross can be in favor of tearing down Mount Rushmore.

He invoked police-involved violence as he added:

That genocide and violence continues to be on the menu as state-sponsored violence in opposition to Native and black People is commonplace. And violent non-public white supremacy is widely known and backed. From Stonechild Chiefstick to Mike Brown to Renee Davis to Breonna Taylor to Eric Garner, indigenous and black persons are nonetheless being murdered by these paid to guard us.

Regardless that FBI and Washington Put up statistics reveal that Native and African People are shot and killed by police officers at a fee that’s proportionate to crime patterns — together with many extra white folks, who’re hardly ever observed by the media — on display screen had been seen various victims of police shootings from these racial teams.

And despite the fact that whites commit homicides throughout racial strains at a relatively low per capita fee in comparison with different teams, he then portrayed whites as killers of minorities. It is a bit of odd to say the accused killers of Ahmaud Arbery aren’t going through reprisal at current:

From Ahmaud Arbery to Trayvon Martin, white People are nonetheless killing Native and black People with no concern of reprisal. They introduced chattel slavery to Africans and Native folks that also occurs by the prison-industrial complicated that imprisons the descendants of enslaved Africans and Natives at far disparate numbers. That’s the actuality of Thanksgiving.

His criticism in regards to the “prison-industrial complicated” ignores the truth that jail incarceration charges typically line up with crime charges. In truth, Native People make up about 2.9 percent of U.S. residents however solely 2.5 percent of those incarcerated. Moreover, even in a comparatively excessive 12 months (like 2017), not more than about two p.c of these shot and killed by cops are Native People.

The liberal activist then pushed for reparations as he concluded:

Many people are nonetheless ready for white People to carry some worth — nonetheless ready for white People to match the mythology of Thanksgiving. Freedom, justice, equality, reparations for 2 and a half billion acres of stolen Place of origin — reparations for 246 years of stolen labor — reparations for stealing Native kids. Cease the killing — it is nonetheless taking place. Cease the theft — it is nonetheless taking place. Return the land — match the mythology. Then, and solely then, we are able to all be equally grateful. Peace.

This incendiary, racially tinged rhetoric was sponsored partly by Subway, Walgreens, and Sling TV. Their contact data is linked. Allow them to understand how you’re feeling about MSNBC airing such racially divisive content material and smearing Thanksgiving as all about racial oppression and homicide.

TIFFANY CROSS (earlier than industrial break): And do not go anyplace at residence as a result of the parable of the primary Thanksgiving is simply that, my pal. It’s a delusion. I flip the mic over to indicate favourite and my pal, Gyasi Ross, to clarify. That is developing subsequent.

(…)

CROSS: With Thanksgiving across the nook, I wished to show the mic over to Cross Connection favourite and my pal Gyasi Ross for this week’s “Essay,” and his tackle the actual story of Thanksgiving and a few historical past you most likely by no means learn in your schoolbooks.

GYASI ROSS, NATIVE AMERICAN ACTIVIST: …The mythology of Thanksgiving intently mirrors the mythology of America. That mythology is the picture that white People like to see for themselves. White settlers come to a wierd land in good religion bringing one thing of nice worth that enriches the people who find themselves already right here. The Natives additionally carry one thing of immense worth — equal change. That intently mimics the pathology of white America. It’s how America needs to see itself.

The reality, after all, of Thanksgiving is far completely different. The reality is, the Pilgrims didn’t carry turkey, candy potato pie, or cranberries to Thanksgiving. They may not. They had been broke. They had been damaged — their fingers had been out — they had been begging — they introduced nothing of worth. However they obtained fed — they obtained schooled. Thanksgiving — it is sensible. There may be a lot for white People to be glad about.

However I am nonetheless looking for out what indigenous folks acquired of worth. As a substitute of bringing stuffing and biscuits, these settlers introduced genocide and violence. That genocide and violence continues to be on the menu as state-sponsored violence in opposition to Native and black People is commonplace. And violent non-public white supremacy is widely known and backed. From Stonechild Chiefstick to Mike Brown to Renee Davis to Breonna Taylor to Eric Garner, indigenous and black persons are nonetheless being murdered by these paid to guard us.

From Ahmaud Arbery to Trayvon Martin, white People are nonetheless killing Native and black People with no concern of reprisal. They introduced chattel slavery to Africans and Native folks that also occurs by the jail industrial complicated that imprisons the descendants of enslaved Africans and Natives at far disparate numbers. That’s the actuality of Thanksgiving.

Many people are nonetheless ready for white People to carry some worth — nonetheless ready for white People to match the mythology of Thanksgiving. Freedom, justice, equality, reparations for 2 and a half billion acres of stolen Place of origin — reparations for 246 years of stolen labor — reparations for stealing Native kids. Cease the killing — it is nonetheless taking place. Cease the theft — it is nonetheless taking place. Return the land — match the mythology. Then, and solely then, we are able to all be equally grateful. Peace.

CROSS: My because of Gyasi Ross.
