Jalen Rose wants to cancel Mt Rushmore

Jalen Rose, not exactly a towering intellect, is wanting to cancel Mt Rushmore. Sick of this crap.

Quote:

ESPN's Jalen Rose is challenging people to stop using the term "Mount Rushmore."
The term is normally used when naming the four greatest in a certain category.
The term derives from Mount Rushmore National Memorial, built on Mount Rushmore in South Dakota,which depicts former presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.

Rose wants to cancel the term because the monument was built "on top of dead bodies" of Native Americans whose land was taken from them.
When does this ridiculous crap stop? First it's canceling the term, then what? Close the park, demolish the monument?

When do these idiots (Rose) realize they are most divisive ones among us? Morons with a microphone and big sports audience.

I have news for idiots like Jalen...

Every. Single. Acre. of land currently owned by every govt. in the world, used to belong to someone else, and most areas were conquered and re-conquered multiples times. It's like these idiots have never opened a history book.

Did you forget that this was a legit initiative of the left when Trump was in office? Just one of many things that suddenly became a non-issue as soon as biden was (illegitimately) sworn in.

First, we must demolish the Big House and Crisler Center.


We acknowledge that the land the City of Ann Arbor occupies is the ancestral, traditional, and contemporary lands of the Anishinaabeg (including Odawa, Ojibwe andBoodewadomi) and Wyandot peoples. We further acknowledge that our City stands, like almost all property in the United States, on lands obtained, generally in unconscionable ways, from indigenous peoples. The taking of this land was formalized by the Treaty of Detroit in 1807.

1. Indians didn't "own" any land and couldn't comprehend the European/American idea of land ownership
2. The plains Indians were nomadic and moved with wild game and weather
3. Indians didn't have "burial grounds" and, in fact, avoided areas where Indians had been buried out of superstition

Mount Rushmore is really pretty dumb. Even as a kid when I first saw it I was very underwhelmed. I rank it 1 notch above 4 corners as places to see on vacation in the west.

That said Rose's argument is also dumb. Yes we pushed the Sioux on to reservations but they pushed other tribes out of the Black Hills when they were pushed out of the Great Lakes region by more powerful tribes. The Sioux were effectively just another big bad empire that moved into the black hills region. This sort of thing has been prevalent in almost every place humans have existed in large numbers.

So you're saying the southern slave owners and KKK members were actually liberals and progressives?

Your grandparents were probably democrats. We're they liberals?

Maternal: 1880s, German/Irish, Redlands CA & Chicago IL -father was LEO in Redlands, mother a SHM. Republican

Paternal: 1887, Mexican, SATx - father a Naval NCO, mother SHM. Republican/Democrat respectively.

Neither side was from slavery or any of that silliness.

That would have been the Lakota, who violently took the black hills from the Cheyenne, who violently took it from the Arikara who violently took it from the ... well the list goes on. Lots of "dead bodies" left in the Black Hills long before the settlers/miners showed up.

On a more general note, isn't it interesting how many truly terrible, divisive and regressive ideas come from mainstream media figures?
