Being native north american, I understand all too much the whole divide and conquer BS going on. In a simplistic view, there are people in power, who
a lot are white, that have been committing straight up genocide on my people, and no, not 200 years ago either.
It wasn't until the mid 90's that the last death school was shut down. The people in power, keep stoking the flames, and pointing that fire at white
people, to keep the heat off the real problem. Scumbags in power. Yeah they may be white, but they are not doing it because
they are white.
That doesn't give me a reasonable fear that whitey is out to get me and that I need to hate them all. It is sheer ignorance really, most of the white
people I have talked to do not even know
, and once they find out are horrified that they didnt't.
They bought into the narrative, bought into stereotypes of the drunk and druggie losers living off the government. They never looked into why that
would be, not that it is really an excuse, but damn, a lot of people turn to alcohol and drugs when they can no longer take the abuse, and that is the
only escape at their fingertips.
My people's struggles, have left a lot of them with nothing and rage and hatred, which I totally understand. It is just aimed
at the wrong
group of people. I think that was more what this case was about, keeping the hatred, and the anger aimed at the wrong spot. Keep it aimed
