What Would Pocahontas Think of Donald Trump?


Posted By Toyacoyah Brown September 12th, 2017 Blog


Sky News attempts to answer, what would Pocahontas think of Donald Trump by asking these two women: Debbie Porreco, a descendant of Pocahontas and Irene Bedard, the voice of Disney's Pocahontas.

I'm really surprised to see the descendant is okay with Trump using the name Pocahontas as a slur when talking about Elizabeth Warren.



Disappointed in fact.

How do you feel after watching the video?

  1. Two levels of assimilation at it’s finest. We do to ourselves what they couldn’t hope to do: we assimilate into mainstream society and embrace it as if it is us. We have all been assimilated to a point, the key to balance is to remain focused on our individuality and not meld into any of the molds created for us by others. Stay grounded in our unique culture and educate others when possible. Live and let live.
