racist comment is racist comment.
You don't know the validity of the comment, yet you used it as an excuse to slam an entire ethnic group of people...
incidently, I switched a word for you...guess which one it is

I am not slamming an entire ethnic group of people, only the culture that has been brought along with them. It's not racist it's an observation. Materialism and Monotheism come hand and hand whenever the white man arrives into natives' land. It's not racist if it's supported by history, sorry if truth hurts your sensitivities.
Also the validity of the comment does not change whether or not the comment I made was any less true, again truth is supported by examples, regardless whether this is one case is or isn't.edit on 23-6-2011 by Chewingonmushrooms because: (no reason given)edit on 23-6-2011 by Chewingonmushrooms because: (no reason given)

I did see this video a while back on TV, Discovery Channel or Nat Geo or something. There wasn't the back ground music and the narrator was explaining what was going on. Here's some of the details I remember:
1. The tribesmen didn't like the rice at first. But after the white guy put salt on it, they ate it up. Hitting the head was a sign to everyone else that it was good.
2. The white guy got them to say their words for things like "tree" and "water". He wrote them phonetically and would later repeat them. They were amazed by his writing and reading back the words.
