This map isn’t much use for driving directions, but is in our heads as we drive: The United States and Mexico as they looked in 1830. What are now Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, California and parts of other states were in Mexico; Louisiana was a border state.
I wish that most Americans would realize that this land belonged to Native Americans and Mexicans first. Afters decades of battles, wars, slaughters, and encampment by the English, they made this into America. Every single offspring in America has had family that was all migrants at one point in their life.
Get the fuck over racism!
