This wasn’t the original one I saw, but I found another one. Text reads: This link will give you a better understanding of British Romani or the English gypsys from which my family came to America. The Romanichal gypsys are the oldest vitsa of gypsy and the descendants of the Hindu deity Rama. The seventh avatar of Vishnu and the personification on earth of the perfect husband and man. He represented the values of Virtue , honor , duty , chivalry and sincerity among others. 
The honest truth is we value our women far more than ourselves as the givers of life and the leaders of our community to a higher degree than men. Romani is and always has been a Matriarchal culture. Do not confuse “Romani” with “Roma” They are very different than us with regard to gender roles and less honorable to some extent.

OMFG I CANNOT. 

Oh wow, that’s a good one!

First…. Many Indigenous Nations have calendars which have
been counting the years for a very long time. I am aware that
the calendar of the Mohawk Indian Nation has been counting
the winters for over 33,120 years. This pre-dates the so-called
‘land-bridge’ of the Bering Strait theory, unless, of course, the
Bering Strait scientists decide to move their interestingly illusive
time period for “early migration” of Indians back to 40,000 years!
Many American Indian early histories tell of events that took
place on this Turtle continent (North America) long before any
so-called ice age. But, for political reasons, these histories
have been mostly ignored. You see, the Bering Strait, in truth,
is a theory that was born of the politics and propaganda of
early America. In the midst of the American ‘Manifest Destiny’
social climate, the Bering Strait theory provided a ‘scientific’
means to justify the taking of ancestral Indian lands. In short,
the mythical theory eased the conscience, as it was a way for
land hungry immigrants to believe that, because Indian people
were only ‘recent inhabitants’ of this land , it was not really their
‘homeland’. Therefore Indians were, in their minds, not any more
the ‘original people’ of this land than they were. This was, and
still is, the political power of the infamous ‘Bering Strait theory’.

The B.S. (Bering Strait) Myth
By John Two-Hawks

The Bering Strait Theory was made to make colonialism seem less like exploitation.

The press still thinks [global warming] is controversial. So they find the 1% of the scientists and put them up as if they’re 50% of the research results. You in the public would have no idea that this is basically a done deal and that we’re on to other problems, because the journalists are trying to give it a 50/50 story. It’s not a 50/50 story. It’s not. Period. Neil deGrasse Tysonpodcast interview (via fourteendrawings)
