Yes, we’re on the same page, and thank you for asking, I do appreciate that you asked. I’m aware of what white people did to indians. A lot of people misunderstood my post. I just felt that a lot of indians are not genuinely concerned about the use of their sacred things and cultural materials but rather are looking for an excuse to be nasty and hateful, and that’s what disgusts me. It’s to the hypocrites that I say: you have the choice now. If you don’t want white people and indians to be sharing cultural material, then you need to cut it out too. It’s my way of saying, practice what you preach. The minute these people saw my post they just assumed I was another white racist who is completely uneducated and unaware of the history of native americans and our country and they also assumed that I’m against native americans, you know, that I’m just some white racist, who hates all the other races and just wants to stand around attacking them all day. They all leveled their judgments at me but when I replied and tried to explain the misunderstanding, I GOT NO RESPONSE. like, poof they’d disappeared.

Just so we’re 100% on the same page here:
You do realize that the colonists forced American Indians to do ALL of this, right? Like, you know that our leaders took their land and destroyed it, along with their homes, and like made them adopt white clothing and language and religion and housing and basically anything American that they’re using right now, right?
Like… That’s not the same as killing and destroying a culture, forcing it to adopt your ways, then going, ” Hey, I really like this thing. It looks cool. I don’t care what it means to you, I wanna take it and use it for funsies.”
