See, this is one of those places where y'all keep f***ing up. You don't search for the truth behind any of these events depicted on this meme. Nobody (I say that broadly because I know plenty of people who do) truly wants to know what happened during 9/11 because it will most likely offend their sensibilities, AND it will expose their false, but vehement, hatred for a group of people that don't deserve it. Y'all put on your "patriotic" faces, and talk about unity and standing together, but really you just want people to know that you feel superior to them for being a "good citizen" of these here Divided States.
How do I know this? Well, that's where the next 2 depictions come in. There are many people who truly believe that enslaved humans were treated well, and may have actually enjoyed their enslavement. Most of these people, and even the majority of those who aren't so ignorant as to think something so wild, don't want to learn the truth behind the Americult's chattel slavery, have no interest in learning about the eugenics movement which was founded purely to "prove", scientifically, that Africans (but really all people of color) were/are mentally, and emotionally, inferior to white people which justifies their enslavement because they can't survive on their own. Even more people are decidedly uninterested in learning about the putrid attempts to give the enslaved their freedom, and how all of those actions and policies have affected the world we live in today, and the lives of people who look like those enslaved for the first 400 some odd years of this country's existence.
THEN y'all want to completely ignore the literal theft of the land we call "America" from an indigenous peoples, through murder (read: genocide), lies, deceit, and a host of other inhumane and altogether awful actions taken against those people. Still today, their rights as humans, and their rights to the land that was stolen from them by force, are denied. They have been given "reservations" (kinda like we have given wolves and other animals "reservations"... See the commonalities there?), which are small, and mostly ignored, plots of land for anyone belonging to a tribe of indigenous people.
See, the thing is, when people are consistently ignored, and the experiences of their ancestors are dismissed, or denied, it is made patently clear that those people do not matter. If their history, and the stories of their ancestors, or their own stories, don't matter... Then the people don't matter. You can't have it both ways. You can't deny their history, deny their personal (or second/thirdhand) experiences, and still tell them that they matter to you... There is a severe logical fallacy in that thought process. While you're taking moments of silence for the tragedy of 9/11 (and let's be clear, it was a tragedy, but it was a much larger tragedy for those that were murdered after the fact in Iraq, Afghanistan, or any other Arabian country (which includes anyone of Arabian descent, living here, which were persecuted (and still are) after 9/11)), there is a tribe of indigenous peoples (the Sioux) fighting for their land, in a very literal way, in North Dakota (which most of y'all are ignoring). That, however, is merely a specific example of a known fight that is currently happening, and is not even somewhat representative of the daily struggle for significance and survival that these people are in, which is also being ignored. While taking that moment of silence, people of color, everywhere, are dying because they had the misfortune of being born dark-skinned, or being born into a religion that the Americult doesn't understand, or care about, AND there are very real protests/fights/struggles being undertaken to gain the significance and opportunity that many take for granted.
Which leads to the "Never Forget!!!" and "Get Over It!!" statements in the top 2 pictures. Y'all scream the never forget slogan because around 3,000 people died, most of whom none of y'all ever met, and still don't know the names of. It becomes this vehement point of contention between people because if someone isn't "patriotic enough" to memorialize (not remember, because I absolutely remember) the events which happened on 9/11, then they are "un-American", "hate our soldiers", or are "disrespectful of the people who lost their lives". However, when myself, or the myriad of much more intelligent and informed people of color, try to educate about the things which keep them (or even you) in the worst possible situation, you say that slavery, or Jim Crow, or 'insert commonly dismissed period of atrocity towards people of color here' was in the past, and we really need to get over it. You ignore the fact that 9/11 exists as part of the exact same system which created those things. 9/11 didn't happen in a vacuum. The history of this country created the steps to 9/11, EVEN IF YOU BELIEVE IT WAS PERPETRATED BY THOSE "EVIL" MUSLIMS. The policies designed, the wars entered into, the laws passed, etc. all of these things have a direct involvement in the deaths of people on that day, and all the people who died after that day.
"America" lost 3,000 some odd lives that day, and many more in the subsequent Wars of Deceit. The indigenous people of this country lost approximately 90% of their entire population (and their land). Enslaved African people died by the multi millions during the slave trade, and slavery itself. People of Arabia have died by the millions since 9/11 (which only adds to the other millions killed prior to 9/11).
