Warren's Pocahontus speech

She compares the myth of Pocahontas to the reality, the former a means to whitewash colonization. The latter is that she was instrumental in negotiating between the tribes and the settlers. For this she was rewarded by imprisonment and rape. Later she was forced into marriage, taken to Great Britain as a token for trade relations and died at 21.

And now Pocahontas is the butt of Dump's crass and inhumane assault on Native Americans. Great speech given by someone who appreciates Natives and all people, and fights to protect their rights. Quite the contrast from that Stinking Dump.
