The story of Mount Rushmore

Its sculptor had ties to the Ku Klux Klan, and the land it was built on belonged to Native Americans. This is the controversial history of Mount Rushmore, where President Trump will attend 4th of July festivities.

    Some say the four presidents were good... good to whom? Good to the immigrants... Certainly not to the Sioux, the Cheyenne and others... the original inhabitants for thousands of years! Restore the sacred Black Hills to their original state and give them back to the Natives...

    They're still stealing Indian Land this very day. The wampanoags from Massachusetts just lost their reservation. Not proud.

    They were also known for their ownership of slaves and their fierce rascism. Not proud.

    Yeah, it's very obvious! However in my opinion, they were some of the best Presidents.

    Christopher COLUMBUS never discovered America the Indians were already here. So how can they discover something that had already been found? Explain that. Stealing something dont make it yours.

    I just watched it again last night. Every time it comes on I watch it I love the story it’s a good story. An American man had a vision and brought it to Light on the Dakota mountains.

    History isnt always pretty, but its still history and if willing we can learn never to repeat the bad and remind us of the good.

    Get over it ....snowflakes. ..I was born and raised in SD....I've seen the truth ..many times ....let's talk equality. ...ok...white man has been civilized for thousands of years. ...like the Africans ..Indians were dog eating heathens only 200 years ago. ..blacks were uncivilized uneducated living in dirt and grass huts with plates in their lips ...and you want equality. ..try catching up on the evolutionary scale first.....that's right I said it
