I disagree.....dumping beer on kids is abuse. Drunken OR sober rants about their race is abusive. Doesn't matter if they are Mexican, European, or
purple for that matter. Can you imagine how scared & confused some of them had to be, after being invited to this event???
The topic is very much worth being brought to our attention, whether the OP shows back up again or not.
@ Elton.....thank you for being willing to ask your friend some questions!! I didn't mean to come off as harsh or accusatory in my response to you. I
just get frustrated that as blatant as the very vocal discrimination is against Native Peoples is, everyone always seem to be oblivious to it.
I also get irritated that when you mention a Native issue the first comment are ALWAYS what a "noble race" ect....ad nauseaum......this
romanticizing is equally offensive. Stop flip flopping between demonizing & anglicizing!!!!
PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE!!!
The romanticizing of the Native Cultures is also a stereotype that is offensive, altho outsiders see it as "respect".
It's NOT. Quit the damn fawning and find a way to tangibly get involved!
This is about physical abuse of children with the added horror of the kids being verbally abused with racial epithets screamed at them in a public
venue. How would you feel if it was YOUR CHILD on a field trip subjected to this?
This isn't just a incident that happened to someone else where you get to piss & moan at each other and dilute the subject matter with your petty BS.
Some of you need to get your cookies together, and stop disrespecting the ISSUE!!
BTW....this is why Native issues don't get resolved, the conversation devolves into everything under the sun EXCEPT the original issue at hand. AIM
doesn't have anything to do with what happened to these children, The Keystone pipeline doesn't have anything to do with these children, Hunting
doesn't have anything to do with what happened to these children....
JMO but there is a sore lack of maturity in this thread, I couldn't be more disappointed in ATSers right now.
