Kipling, for the win.

From, "The White Man's Burden" 1899.




Take up the White Man's burden And reap his old reward:
The blame of those ye better, The hate of those ye guard—
The cry of hosts ye humour (Ah, slowly!) toward the light:—
"Why brought he us from bondage, Our loved Egyptian night?"
Take up the White Man's burden, Ye dare not stoop to less—
Nor call too loud on Freedom To cloak your weariness;

By all ye cry or whisper, By all ye leave or do,
The silent, sullen peoples Shall weigh your gods and you.
Take up the White Man's burden, Have done with childish days—
The lightly proffered laurel, The easy, ungrudged praise.
Comes now, to search your manhood, through all the thankless years
Cold, edged with dear-bought wisdom, The judgment of your peers!


Kipling wrote that about America, invading the Philippines.

Duterte.

Misao Dean plainly has too much time on her hands and not enough to complain about in real life.

In my opinion, she should deport herself from the US on the basis that she is a descendant of white Europeans who invaded occupied territory and massacred the inhabitants. But she won't of course, because she is an airhead without any insight.

So her calling the canoe a symbol of colonialism, imperialism and genocide is normal to you?


Can YOU fully understand her whole concept from your single sentence?

Why should she deport herself from the US?

She's not in the US. She's Canukistanian. typical socialist commie from the great white north!!

LOL Nah. Most normal thinking humans dont penalize folks for their ancestors actions or inactions. Visiting the iniquities of the Fathers upon sons isnt usually very productive this many generations later. LOL! What grinds my gears is that between 1492 - 2016 she can only come up with canoes being a huuuuge deal. Morons in high paying jobs.. or any paying jobs... annoy the hell out of me. If YOURE that DELUSIONAL... MAYBE clean sheets and some demorol ( and some reprogramming gotmo style) is in order.

The whole concept of cultural appropriation is retarded. I guess white people can no longer wear a Cowichan sweater or use tobacco because that would be "appropriating" Native North American culture? lol. Well I'm actually part Native myself, so which part of me can utilize those things? I'm also made up of Dutch and Welsh, so at least I have those options too.

Either way, I guess I should discard the Indian food I have in the fridge; I don't want to be a cultural appropriator.

Idiotic, sure, but getting one's foundation garments in a tangle over it is pretty silly too.

Anyway, this kind of tripe has been abundant since the Seventies at least. Bit late to start complaining now.

Yes, these poeple exist and college debt in teh US is helping to fuel their so-called academic idiocy.

There is an academic paper out there that calls into question the "whiteness" of pumpkins too. I kid you not.

Did I miss the bit about the canoe?

Rudyard Kipling changed his nind about the imperial project after he lost a beloved son in the First World War. He died a bitter, regretful man.

Great writer, though. Put his point about as well as it could be put. Unfortunately the opposing point is put not by literature but by history. Come to my country some time and I'll show you who actually bore the White Man's Burden. Hint: it wasn't the white man.

Kipling my eyeball.

When I think of the canoe, an over privileged white man, does not come to mind.



actually the oldest canoe comes from Denmark.


Constructed between 8200 and 7600 BC, and found in the Netherlands, the Pesse canoe may be the oldest known canoe. Excavations in Denmark reveal the use of dugouts and paddles during the Ertebølle period, (ca 5300 BC – 3950 BC).[5]
Canoe


you can't get much whiter than the Netherlands and Denmark.

Apathy is part of the problem, too, and that is what you're advocating in your comment.

No thanks...and my panties aren't in a wad, I just can't understand how people think this way...it reeks of ignorance and idiocy to me. I'll call that out any time that I see fit.

And I was born in 1979, so I didn't have a lot of time to complain in the 70s.

I'm not surprised and thanks for saving me the time searching. I'd imagine all cultures have a canoe like boat in their history.

IMO this is just someone wanting attention, so they make up things that will shock or anger people to get the attention they crave. I can't imagine anyone with even basic critical thinking skills taking this stuff seriously in any way.

Well at least this one is in Canada and not the US.


What is scary is people like this are teaching young people.

she seems to have a point that the "REI" sorta outdoorsman is primarily white people who are financially affluent. Your odds of seeing anyone other than a middle class white guy in a "skin on wood frame" canoe, or hand-made wooden canoe is extremely low.
But on the other hand, Canoe's weren't just a native american thing. It doesn't take a whole lot of cultural evolution to learn how to hollow out a log and make it float, almost every seafaring culture in the world has made these sorts of boats including scandinavian (Hell, the oldest Canoe we have ever found is 10,000 years old and found in the netherlands Pesse Canoe)
Now, if they were specifically using wooden frame with cedar bark skin, that was an invention of Native americans that wasn't recreated elsewhere, so if it all of a sudden became a fad to use cedar bark-on-frame kayaks by all the affluent white people then I can see how it might be cultural appropriation, but otherwise canoes have always been a widely used form of aquatic transportation



I think the 'natives' used birch bark? for the covering on the Cedar strip built canoes.
