December 29, 1890: A massacre by U.S. 7th Cavalry Regiment takes place near Wounded Knee Creek, South Dakota.
The massacre at Wounded Knee was one of the last major conflicts of the American Indian Wars, taking place on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation of South Dakota. Just two weeks earlier, Lakota Sioux chief Sitting Bull was killed in a struggle against a group of policemen and volunteers (including his own brother-in-law) who had been ordered to arrest him to prevent him from using his influence to support the “Ghost Dance" movement, which was described by agents of the U.S. Indian Service as the "Messiah Craze”. Spotted Elk, another Lakota Sioux leader, was an enthusiastic devotee of this new movement that the American government tried desperately to suppress and outlaw. Spotted Elk and hundreds of his followers were intercepted and relocated by the 7th Cavalry Regiment on December 28, 1890 to Wounded Knee Creek, where the Lakota made camp.
By the next morning, around 500 troops had surrounded Spotted Elk’s camp, made up of 350 Native Americans, around two-thirds of which were women and children. As the 7th Cavalry searched the camp to confiscate any weapons, a scuffle broke out between one of the Lakota and the soldiers, which escalated into a “battle” that ended in around 300 Native American casualties, including 200 women and children killed. 31 soldiers ultimately died as well, although it is speculated that many had been killed by friendly fire, shot by the mounted Hotchkiss guns that had been placed around the camp. Fighting lasted less than an hour, but it was brutal, bloody, and cruel. According to the commanding general, Nelson Miles, “a large number of women and children who tried to escape by running and scattering over the prairie were hunted down and killed”. The 1891 report of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs contained descriptions by surviving Lakota of the events of the massacre:
All the men who were in a bunch were killed right there, and those who escaped that first fire got into the ravine, and as they went along up the ravine for a long distance they were pursued on both sides by the soldiers and shot down, as the dead bodies showed afterwards….
There was a woman with an infant in her arms who was killed as she almost touched the flag of truce, and the women and children of course were strewn all along the circular village until they were dispatched. Right near the flag of truce a mother was shot down with her infant; the child not knowing that its mother was dead was still nursing, and that especially was a very sad sight.
Spotted Elk himself (pictured above) was killed during the fight. Medals of Honor were awarded to twenty of the troopers who fought at Wounded Knee (listed here), some of them for, ironically, “extraordinary gallantry”, “distinguished conduct”, and “conspicuous bravery”. Like most of the conflicts of the Indian Wars, the Wounded Knee Massacre was often brushed over in popular history until the 1970s during a period of Native American activism, and after the release of the popular book Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.

No Words Needed
Also, she’s FAKE, or at least highly exaggerated. Like, this isn’t even possible due to federal regulations.
Um… why would it be her fault if her kid’s fathers don’t pay child support? Isn’t that the father’s issue?
Of course not. She’s A Single Black Mother On Welfare. Everything is her fault.
man like ppl who post these kinda things must not know how impossible it is to make ends meet on that little a month. WOW 1K THATS SO MUCh ahah yeah after rent and bills and daily expenses she must be rollin in that like $5 left over shit man look out
Welfare is not ment to live off of. It’s help/aid. STOP FORGETTING SHE IS ABLE TO WORK.
IF she is real, and IF she is getting cash assistance, then she is in work training for a minimum of 30 hours a week and she has to provide job search logs to her caseworker on the regular.
IF she is real, and IF she is getting cash assistance, then she has a 5 year LIFETIME limit of receiving that benefit.
IF she is real, and IF she is getting cash assistance, then filing for child support from all the children’s fathers was a requirement for being approved. Meaning, if they’re not paying, that’s on them, not her.
IF she is real, and IF she is getting cash assistance, she is still broke as hell. I could barely support myself making $1200/mo, much less 4 other people who would be completely dependent on me.
But considering all of those factors, it’s pretty doubtful that she’s real, as I said in my first reply.
That last comment = Perfection. She’s an imaginary boogeyman of terrified conservatives. The Welfare Queen, was originally invented, whole-cloth, by the Regan administration.
BOOoOOOOOooooo! Teh sexually profligate poors are coming rob you for your tax moneez! They want to live in your neighborhood and get their poor cooties on you!
It’s easier to believe in her as she is presented, than it is to believe that maybe, just maybe, The American Dream (fanfare) doesn’t happen as easily, nor as equally, as we’d like to think.
"It’s not MY fault I can’t get rich! It’s them greedy poors takin’ all my money-taxes!"
Look, there are cheats in every system, public and private. But they are the exception, not the rule. And they are never, ever as egregious as political PR would make them out to be. Unless you’re a major corporation that ca afford hundreds of loophole-seeking lawyers, it’s pretty damn difficult to get away with cheating the government.
If you believe this shit (the image) you need to get hit with a brick
Meanwhile, no one is posting about the majority of those who receive welfare and do no live below poverty wages: white people.
the bold though. And it’s funny that this is only ever brought up about black women, why is it never white women who get these posts
Props to my 6 year old self for calling out bullshit at an early age.
who the hell decided that sean sounds like shawn
SO I ACTUALLY DID THIS A FEW MONTHS AGO AND I DIDNT EVEN THINK THEY LOOKED AT THIS SORT OF THING SO BY THE TIME THE DELIVERY MAN CAME I HAD FORGOTTEN THAT I WROTE THAT AND THE GUY WAS REALLY CUTE. WHEN I OPENED THE DOOR HE WAS SUPER FLUSTERED AND DROPPED HIS PEN, THE BAG HOLDING THE PIZZA AND THE RECEIPTS. THEN after i signed the receipt and he was getting ready to leAVEEEE HE GOES “So… umm… did you actually put that?” and i was like “put what?” and he goes “… to.. um… tell you.. um that you’re pretty” omg it hit me that this was why he was all nervous and i started cracking up omfg then he told me that i was pretty.
i did this once but when the guy came to the door I sent my friend Martin to get the pizza and I heard muffled laughter and then Martin came back into the room with the pizza and whispered “he told me I was pretty”
