Queen Elizabeth Urged To Apologize For Slavery, And Treatment Of Native Americans

Posted by Casey on May 1, 2007


Give me a break! This PC BS has got to be silenced. The Queen of England has no obligation, or reason, to apologize for something she had nothing to do with. She is supposed to be celebrating the 400th anniversary of Jamestown. Listen to these idiots, and their pathetic demands …

Times Online:

THE Queen is being urged to apologise for the slaughter of American Indians and the introduction of slavery when she visits Virginia this week as guest of honour to mark the 400th anniversary of the first English settlement in the New World at Jamestown.

She will be landing in the middle of a row over political correctness after officials in Virginia banned the use of the word “celebration” for the anniversary. It is being called a “commemoration” out of respect for the suffering of native Americans, who were attacked after the colonists arrived in 1607.

Yes, they banned the word celebration. There is also problems with Christianity being banned as well.

“Leaders and heads of state have a responsibility to set the tone and it would be a welcome move for the Queen to express regret,” said Virginia state representative Donald McEachin, a descendant of slaves.

Mr. McEachin … get over it already. The Queen had nothing to do with it, nor does anyone else alive today. Stop demanding apologies for things that we had nothing to do with. You are continuing to demand apologies where apologies have already been given, and you continue to divide this country.

Dr Linwood Custalow, author of The True Story of Pocahontas and a descendent of Indian chiefs from the Mattaponi tribe — part of the Powhatan nation — hopes to be introduced to the Queen. “She should definitely apologise,” he said. “The first Americans were very welcoming to the colonists, but they launched a war against them.”

Mary Wade, a native American member of the Virginia Council on Indians, said: “You can’t celebrate an invasion. Whole tribes were annihilated.”

Again … the Queen had nothing to do with any of this. Not to mention that the Native American Indians attacked some of the previous colonies first. No one knows for sure what happend to the “Lost Colony”, and there was peace with the natives after John Rolfe married Pocahontas.

This is a complete lack of respect for the Queen of England who is swallowing her pride and visiting the birthplace of (what would become) the US, and lead to the defeat of her country twice. Jamestown gave rise to the US, and the fall of the British Empire. Conduct yourselves with dignity in the presence of royalty for crying out loud.

    Hi everyone, both Indians and Whites,
    It is fine to welcome Queen Elizabeth to Virginia. I am a descendant of Mattaponi and Pamunkey Tribes through one of Chief Powhatan’s children. I am proud of my indigenous ancestry.

    Since someone posted a message that mentioned Pocahontas and her husband, John Rolfe. This reminded me of something and I want to bring this up.

    Did you know that Pocahontas was raped by several colonists? I am sure this least known fact comes as a shock to you. She confided that to her older sister who in turned passed that info to Chief Powhatan.

    And this became part of oral Mattaponi history that was passed down in secret for for generations.

    In fact, Pocahontas was kidnapped near the banks of Potomac River in front of her first husband, Kocum, He was assaulted and was left for dead. But he survived.

    Their son was somewhere else at that point. So he was safe and he was the older half brother of Thomas Rolfe. That older half brother’s descendants include a famous singer named Wayne Newton.

    As for Pocahontas, she was raped by several colonists. One of the colonists was Sir Thomas Dale who headed the Jamestown colony. He got Pocahontas pregnant and the baby boy, Thomas, was named after him.

    The birth of Thomas took place before Pocahontas married John Rolfe. I want to explain about naming a child. It is an English custom to name a first born boy after his father.

    So it was not surprising that little Thomas Rolfe was not named after his legal father, John Rolfe.

    I had experience researching my family tree and I noticed that many of my female ancestors were named after their mothers and first born male ancestors after their fathers. We do not practice this custom in this day and era. Times have changed.

    After Pocahontas and her people went to England, do you have any idea what English people did to them?

    Well, listen to this. Pocahontas’s people were forcibly sold into slavery in England and they ended up in carnivals and they were locked in cages in the side freak shows there. Some of them were raped and got pregnant. They were sent to Bermuda Islands.

    If you do not believe me, I suggestg you ask Dr. Linwood Custalow. He wrote the book about those things that he heard as a little boy. He lives in Williamsburg.

    What happened to Pocahontas and her people both in Virginia and England was horrible and shocking.

    I can see why Powhatan people do not want to acknowledge people who descend from Pocahontas’s son that was fathered by a rapist named Sir Thomas Dale.

    This was a horrible ordeal that Pocahontas was forced to go through. I think you get the picture now.

    I can’t say that Queen Elizabeth should apologize since she was born in around the year 1925 so I am sure that the Queen had no idea what really happened around Pocahontas. It was nice of the Queen to acknowledge Pocahontas’s people recently.

    In the early part of 1900’s, white young men used to harrass the Mattaponi Indian reservation by crusiing around in their pickup trucks yelling dirty names at the Mattaponi neighbors. Those white men are the ones who should apologize if they are still alive today.

    Thanks,
    Mae

    I appreciate the post, and info. There is also a problem of Natives harassing white people as well. Perhaps they should all move on, and grow up.

    I don’t know anything about Natives harassing white people. You got me curious. How did this happened? Could you tell me more about it?

    American history is full of both whites, and natives, attacking the other first. Especially out west in later times.

    The previous attempts to establish a settlement before Jamestown were met with violent actions by natives. Not all native tribes were peaceful victims. Several were warlike barbarians who preyed upon anyone they came in contact with.

    This was also evident when seeing the tribes choosing sides during the French and Indian war. There were tribes that would attack both with provocation in an attempt to gain power.
