The most important line in the whole damn song. MESSAGE.
The only historically accurate line in the whole film.
THEY CALLED THE WHITE MEN DANGEROUS BECAUSE THEY WERE SHOOTING THEM NOT BECAUSE THEY HAD WHITE SKIN.
it bugs the shit out of me when people try and act like the native americans in pocahontas were just as wrongly judgmental as the white men. the white guys were like “man, they’re tan and we don’t get their ways. let’s shoot ‘em.” and THEN the natives were like “well, fuck these guys.”
It’s not the same.
