‘Drink Like an Indian’ and 28 Other Tasteless Thanksgiving Party Promotions – ICTMN.com

This is the sort of racist bullshit that we have to deal with year-round. Interesting how it remains totally acceptable to demean, trivialize, appropriate and trash indigenous cultures ON OUR OWN LANDS. Of course, these classless assholes always claim that "they didn't mean to offend anyone" and we should "lighten up." Sure, guys. Because you squatter-babies get to tell us what is and isn't offensive, right?

In recent days, a promotion at the Washington, DC bar McFadden’s elicited outrage from American Indians. The event was a pre-Thanksgiving party touted with flyers or posters bearing the slogan “Party Like a Pilgrim, Drink Like an Indian.”

In fact, it wasn’t just Native Americans who found the material objectionable. Complex.com, which had named McFadden’s the “douchiest” bar in DC, sarcastically asked “How Inappropriate is This D.C. Bar’s Thanksgiving Party Poster?” City blog DCist called it the “Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad, Racist Thanksgiving Party Poster.”
