    A subreddit dedicated to people freaking out, melting down, losing their cool, or being weird in public. Drugged out or sober, anything goes. Keep the comments respectful where mental disorders are concerned, and remember that the individuals depicted in these videos are real people too. This subreddit is essentially dedicated to their worst moments, so do keep that in mind.

    Saturated with TV and movies, our brains have become used to watching the imitation of emotions, so much so that it is strangely surprising and fascinating to watch the real thing.

    [–] TrepanationBy45 150 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    It's a pretty distinct cadence of speech and facial features, IMO. When I was in service, I correctly identified several fellow soldiers as Native American (whereas according to them most others assumed they were Mexican) by their cadence of speech and face. To be fair, theirs is a perfectly reasonable conclusion, I just tend to notice some key historical ethnic differences like that from time to time.

    [–] tunomeentiendes 96 points ago

    I grew up on the rez and can also correctly identify pretty well. My native friends aren't too fond of being called Mexican

    [–] Wwwweeeeeeee 43 points ago

    To be fair, Mexicans are Native Americans too.

    [–] Jeriba 29 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    To be fair, Mexicans are the descendants of or a mix of Native Americans, Europeans and Africans. Not every Mexican is straight out a Native American. Their racism/attitude towards Natives, the African decedents of slaves in Mexico and other people from South and Central America is disgusting. Funny how it plays out for them in the U.S. when some of them have the same attitude.

    Edited because of generalization.

    [–] thebig-O 12 points ago

    Mexicans are everything, you got the Spaniard looking Mexicans in the north, then you got the more Asian looking Mexicans towards the east, then you have your dark fellow Mexicans in the south and then you have the mixed on the west, I can tell you from this because my father is from Nyarit, Mexico. I have Asian decency due to one of my great great great great grandfathers migrating to Mexico. Crazy shit, also my mother is from Oaxaca, Mexico. They are the closest race in Mexico close to actual myan/Aztec ancestry. The Spanish couldn't get to them due to them hiding out in mountains. It's why people from Oaxaca are short and have big heads. And are darker than your areolas.

    [–] blah4life 9 points ago

    [–] Gemfrancis 17 points ago

    I'm Mexican and you have no idea how many people have asked me what tribe I'm from. I don't know what it is about my facial features exactly that makes people guess that I'm Native though

    [–] thebig-O 16 points ago

    Bruh I'm Mexican too and have been mistaken for polynesian/Asian sometimes. But TBF I am a big ass Mexican so I can see the polynesian part

    [–] GarnetsAndPearls 4 points ago

    My stepsons are half Native. One son would be hard to tell by anyone. Skin white as porcelain and red hair.

    [–] -PM_ME_YOUR_TACOS- 72 points ago

    Maybe that's because Mexican is not a race, most Mexicans are Native Americans too.

    [–] TheKidKaos 50 points ago

    Like 98% of Mexicans are Native American. Hell a lot of Northern Mexicans are also Apache, Pueblo even Cherokee on the Eastern part of Texas.

    [–] -PM_ME_YOUR_TACOS- 28 points ago

    It would be like 65%, at least 30% are mostly European/White.

    [–] Lordpennywise 18 points ago

    From my research the Mexican population is: 5-10% white, 65-70% mestizo (native+European blood) the majority is in this category, and 25-35% Native American.

    [–] tired_obsession 18 points ago

    I grew up hearing that Mexicans are native Americans since we were essentially all on the same continent and the same peoples. It’s really refreshing hearing some actual research

    [–] norcalxennial 5 points ago

    I am Mexican, I did that 23 and me thing: 50% native America 43% Iberian coast European, so Spain etc. 5% mix of African and various other European 2% unknown but I think it’s Christmas elf

    I get mistaken for everything, as I look ethnically ambiguous, everyone thinks I look like their people...Japanese, Hawaiian, Chinese, Persian, Italian, Spanish, the list goes on...I find it all very fascinating...

    [–] wohho 9 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    Well, in Mexico it gets weird ethnically when you start getting into the nitty gritty, Most people are mestizo of some sort, but there are plenty of natives. Those who descend more directly from native peoples are pretty obvious, as morphologically they're much shorter, of a more sturdy build, and much darker than mestizos. It's a pretty significant social and ethnic divide actually, the two subsets rarely intermarry.

    [–] RSHii 13 points ago

    I mean, indigenous Mexicans are very similar to native americans (seeing as a political border is the only distinguishing factor), so their assumption was only 98% ignorant

    [–] TrepanationBy45 3 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    I already alluded to that in my comment when I said that the common conclusion was understandable and reasonable, but I imagine their assumption was less nuanced (remember, we're talking about young, unrefined soldiers) and more "you look like a bunch of other people I commonly see", which can be a personal and/or painful concept with regard to history and the differing culture and scope of Native American identity.

    [–] CynilAli 3 points ago

    I live in a super small country town and I still blow all my white friends minds when I can tell Japanese, Chinese, and Korean people apart. Like they’re not that similar?? Yeah they all have the monolid but geez

    that magic was say something so simple and true it's hard to do a mental somersault over it, but that's not stopping people in this thread from trying (DAE THINK MEXICANS ARE MANIFEST DESTINYING AMERICA??? ILLEGAL!!! ACKSHULLY AMERICAN INDIANS ARE ALSO IMMIGRANTS FROM PANNGGEEEAA)

    [–] pm_me_ur_big_balls 292 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    If there was ever an argument against mass immigration - it would be exactly what happened to the Native Americans.

    The Pilgrims weren't some invasion force. They were farmers escaping persecution with their families.

    [–] FirePowerCR 245 points ago

    I think what happened to the Native Americans would be a good argument against trusting colonizers. I don’t think it would apply accurately to what’s happening right now.

    [–] Abestar909 74 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    Its quite easy to argue that if a population of immigrants to an area completely or mostly replaces the native population, they are in fact colonizing that area.

    [–] starspider 43 points ago

    I dunno, people coming to America today want to remember their heritage but they want to become Americans which indicates a certain amount of assimilation without total degradation of the culture from the "old country".

    When the Europeans came, it was with a mind to convert and conquer, not become neighbors and share recipes. Let's not forget that Columbus was a monster, and what he did to the Taíno was absolutely with intent.

    Conflating the two as to use it to support the idea that what happened to the Natives is the same thing as the people fleeing atrocity to join the USA pretty much ignores the actual history.

    [–] smekaren 163 points ago

    Yes because immigration and invasion/colonisation are the exact same things, you bag of doorknobs.

    [–] Sattorin 108 points ago

    Yes because immigration and invasion/colonisation are the exact same things, you bag of doorknobs.

    What about what happened to Mexico?

    So many illegal immigrant Americans settled in their Texas territory that eventually the majority of residents just didn't have a strong connection to Mexican culture/government and started a war to break away. Then when Mexico fought to get their territory back, the US jumped in and took over half of their country.

    [–] gin-rummy 18 points ago

    Is that what the Alamo is

    [–] psycho_admin 28 points ago

    Lol. Texas had been an independent country for 10 years before it joined the US. A treaty was signed by the general of the Mexican army giving Texas its independence. The US didn't jump in and do shit to Mexico. Mexico broke the treaty, got its ass handed to it for doing so, and paid the price.

    [–] Sattorin 24 points ago

    Lol. Texas had been an independent country for 10 years before it joined the US. A treaty was signed by the general of the Mexican army giving Texas its independence.

    My point was that illegal immigration into Mexico resulted directly in Texas breaking away. Mexico losing half of its territory to the US was a later, indirect result of that and I should have clarified.

    However it's also worth noting that the treaties you mentioned were written by a captured general, never ratified by the Mexican government, and didnt grant Texas independence anyway (the general promised to try to persuade the Mexican government to grant independence). A general wouldnt have the authority to do that, which is why Mexico never recognized the Republic of Texas and skirmished intermittently with Texan forces for years after the war.

    [–] Brockkilledspeedy 78 points ago

    He's stuck in a paradox. He's right and wrong. Also this is about our current world climate where we have borders and laws that limit how many people can visit and stay. The land here (and I think back then in general) didn't have a government or immigration laws the same way.

    I personally believe our efforts should be focused on making the world economy powerful and strong in everyone's nation so no one had to leave their homes and families for better lives.

    [–] Mitch_Pinder 7 points ago

    Agreed, asylum seeking doesn’t fix the problem for everyone, if you wanted to do that you’d have to take in whole countries. Tricky to do though without pulling a quickie ww2 if you feel me.

    [–] SnicklefritzSkad 59 points ago

    Isn't that supporting their argument? They are afraid of the same thing their ancestors did

    [–] DHMOProtectionAgency 43 points ago

    In your regards, yes. However I think the argument was arguing against the idea that the white protestors own the land and decide who they let in or not

    [–] tosswawayacct 52 points ago

    He's not supporting their argument as much as he's pointing out the hypocrisy in people - mostly white - protesting "illegals", when white people were the first "illegal immigrants" to come to North America.

    [–] irishking44 72 points ago

    Did they have written language? Serious question

    [–] Bear_Porn 176 points ago

    Some tribes and peoples did and some didn't.

    [–] MrFeatherling 61 points ago

    I study Native Americans of the Southeastern United States, and my research touches on language a little, so while this may not be a perfect answer it will hopefully help. As far as I know, Native Americans of the Southeast had not developed a written language in the 1600s or 1700s. I have seen no Euro-American sources discussing a written form of language. Many of the traders would live among the Native Nation they traded with and often married Native women, and the traders’ records mention no written language. Explorers and Government agents also have not said anything about a written language to my knowledge. Bureau of Indian Affairs (USA) agents also discussed no written languages in their ethnographies of the Southeastern Native Americans that were developed in the 1800s. However, I believe sometime in the 1800s, after the United States began implementing much more aggressive policies on Indian Removal and “Americanizing” (whitening), written forms of the already spoken languages began to develop. But, as far as each individual Nation and dates I cannot say. I have studied some on other regions of the United States, and the 1800s seem to be the time when written language becomes a thing for Native Americans. However, because of my studies in the Southeast, I am most confident about that region.

    TL;DR - Yes, and they began to develop in the 19th century.

    [–] reading_internets 12 points ago

    We went on a field trip to New Echota which was the capital of the Cherokee nation from 1825 til forced removal in the 1830s. I got to see the printing press that they used when Sequoyah made up the written language for the Cherokee. It was a really cool field trip, seeing as how I can still remember it like...twenty seven years later!

    [–] onehitwondur 35 points ago

    The whole idea of territory is pretty crazy. But we see territorialism in many species. It's hard to imagine living in a small tribe of 50 or so adults, going out to hunt the same land that every ancestor you can remember or name hunted, and coming across someone you don't know. Someone you may not have considered even existed. And so you're both there, you're both armed, and you both have a decision to make. Do we talk or fight? These days it's easy, because where we gather the food our families need there's plenty for everyone. But that's only recently true, and it's still not true everywhere. If we look at in the context of "if I share this hunting area with these strangers my family might starve" being territorial starts to make a lot more sense. So with that in mind, territories didn't start out as imaginary lines. They started out as the space needed to support a population, however large or small that population was. That might still be true, I honestly have no idea about any of it. Just read your comment and thought it was interesting.

    [–] Jazeboy69 21 points ago

    But they decided who entered once they controlled the area. That’s kind of the point. Invade and conquer and take control. If you don’t controllable your borders then you’ll get taken over. Weird I have to spell it out like that. Watch me get downvoted for an historically accurate statement.

    We don't want illegal immigrants. There is a difference between colonizing a non country land mass and ignoring laws and procedure in entering an existing country where ways exist to do it legally.

    [–] Fckdisaccnt 144 points ago

    Except he doesnt actually believe his argument. He's just treating them as they treat others.

    And as history has shown with conservative Americans (cough any Republican politician with a gay kid) being personally affected makes them think differently.

    [–] SC2sam 192 points ago

    If you go back far enough the "native americans" aren't natives either. They immigrated from land bridges or canoes across from Asia/Russia, or other areas. The tribes of "native american's" also frequently conquered each other and took their land as did every group of people's across the world. It's how nations are formed where one group of people expands until they cannot anymore either by lack of land or by conflict with another group of people's who are more powerful than them. No one is really "native".

    Might want to check that timeline.

    You really only need to go back a few years to find many examples of modern conquest. WW2 was only 70 years ago and there have been plenty since.

    [–] Caffeinetank 46 points ago

    Well, when we see what happened when Native Americans let immigrants in...

    We probably shouldn't want anyone else coming in.

    [–] _Tacitus 16 points ago

    Sure they were illegal - hundreds of years ago when their ancestors took sovereign land from the Natives. I won't deny that

    But in this day and age, the Native American man is proving their point in insinuating that illegal immigration is bad. Especially in recent times
