  3. As a Native American who grew up on a Rez, I have heard the "not my fault" excuse my entire life. What white people seem to ignore is that even if their ancestors came to this country in 1970, they are still part of the on going damage and institutional racism going on today. Do you fight for Native rights and for the government to honor the 540 Treaties they signed with Natives and broke? Do you do anything about the conditions on reservations, which the government is responsible for, per the treaties they signed? It has been my experience that most, close to all, white people have no idea about the conditions on reservations and that their government is responsible for providing housing. It has been my experience that most white people do not have any kind of thought about Native Americans at all. We are invisible. Are you aware that more Natives are killed by police, by percentage, than ANY OTHER race? Unless you are a Native American, the chances are overwhelming high you are totally ignorant about Native Americans in the past and today. So I'm a racist if I point out your blindness to your responsibilities? What are you going to do to correct the injustice and racist actions of the white government, or will you continue to add to it by ignoring it?
  4. Even as I was posting it, I knew without a doubt you would not accept a word of it. Most white people refuse to believe they have any responsibility for what their ancestors have done and what the following generations, including themselves, continue to do. Why do I say white people? How many natives do you hear saying "get over it"? How many black people do you hear saying, "get over it"? How many Asians do you hear saying, "get over it"? When it comes to what white people have done to people of color, their go to phrase of dismissal is "get over it."

  6. Colonialism makes perfect sense...scientifically...for some of the actions of individuals. It's called historical or intergenerational trauma and can be found in DNA. https://indiancountrymedianetwork.com/news/native-news/trauma-may-be-woven-into-dna-of-native-americans/
