Right to not be offended... speech... arms... soldier quartered... search and seizures... double jeopardy... speedy trial... trial by jury... excessive bail... rights not specifically enumerated by the Constitution... powers not delegated.. nope still not in there.

Wonder what she would think if she saw my kid playing cowboys and indians.

Isn't imitation the greatest form of compliment? Many people have Native American blood running thru their veins. At what percentage are you allowed or not to dress the part? I loved seeing indian costumes when I was a kid, I loved westerns. The costumes were intriguing because they were more real to me, not something fake and unbelievable. Most people have great respect for Native Americans and know that they were hugely wronged. Since more and more Native Americans are not carrying on their traditions as they become more and more modern, it's a shame this mentality exist. The small part of Native American blood in my own veins makes me feel I should be able to celebrate it if I desired. I don't know how I'd break it to my German/Polish side....



ETA - I can't watch vid but what is upsetting to you about this topic?

I'm offended that native americans dress up as "westerners". Cultural appropriation, thats what it is. They're not europeans, so they shouldnt be allowed to wear our culture's clothing.

(works both ways, doesnt it? Or is racism just a one way street?)

Well said and I believe that answers any questions that might come up concerning this subject again.

Your attitude is most refreshing.

Are we really offended by something a little girl has to say? A little girl? Have things fallen to the point where we are upset at that a child sees a subjetc as simply right or wrong without the additional complexities? I am offended that people feel the need to debate children.

My ancestors are Scottish. and when women wear skirts, I am offended!
They are making fun of my cultural heritage, the kilt.

No more skirts unless you are a Scottish descended man, then the kilt is OK. you racist women!..lol
makes about as much sense. .

Its funny....its ok to be offended by someone dressing up in blackface...but not to be offended by someone dressing up as a native?

Guess what...people are free to dress up as those things, and people are free to be offended by those who dress up as those things.

WOW! My Irish blood should be boiling every time I see one of those cute little kids having such a good time dressed up as a Leprechaun!
Hey;wait! What color is our soul? Isn't that supposed to be our true self?
Shame on her parents for raising her in such a negative way.

That has to be a joke...cultural appropriation of forced assimilation? I don't remember there being 'reservations' for any colonising culture (and that word should be used with utmost care)...and to be specific,it would be a form of culturism (if that exists)...colonising and forced assimilation is a one-way street...

I would argue that they were hugely wronged.

They were a culturally inferior people who had the same goals as the Europeans but they were not organized enough to carry them out. They also found themselves a victim of their own greed.

Its important to note that they also went against many of the treaties they signed. Since they ended up losing all their land however, they are assumed to have been victims but that is not the case.

Even Pontiac admitted this fault during his rebellion, which had he been able to gain more support, may very well have been successful at driving the "white man" back to the Sea, but this kind of cultural community was not possible among the Native Americans because even faced with imminent doom, they still tried to play the Europeans off of one another, and the various tribes, for political and economic advantage.

It turned out to be their downfall.

Dementia?

Amnesia??

I forget, I was too drunk to remember things like that.

BTW, the video seems to be of a guy with his chainsaw.

That's a bit rude, calling him a little girl..

Couldn't find it there OP but did find this video on youtube touching on it perhaps.

Can't get it to embed so perhaps the link will work.

Native Americans are not Halloween costumes

Don't forget, it was the Native Americans that conducted the first massacre in the New World known as America and had no problem starving out women and children because it benefitted them.
