As A Dakota, I Am Shocked That Any American Handed A Headdress Would Wear It

sicksvdwrld:

"The headdress represents our leaders who were hunted down and murdered by the U.S. military. It is not a fashion accessory. It is an honor and a symbol of the sovereignty of the Plains tribes and the authority vested in the people to choose their own leaders. It should only be worn in circumstances that a head of state would participate in as a representative of these nations."

This focus on ancestry reflects the United States’ policy of measuring our blood quantum as a way of reducing our numbers — another pathway to eventual elimination of the indigenous population. The hope was that we would all eventually have too little “blood” to qualify for citizenship in our own nations and tribes would then disappear and no longer trouble U.S. with claims to the land.”

"John Lennon Syndrome"

A white guy who preaches peace/love/good gender politics but is an abusive asshole to the people he is close to and does not uphold those values in his personal life.

elizabitchtaylor:

have you ever noticed that when someone makes a post or a comment about how white men suck, the white men who respond angrily are not only offended, but shocked. 

shocked that anyone would make a sweeping generalization about a group of people. shocked that they would be judged for something that they can’t control.

because they have no idea what it’s like to hear that kind of stuff about oneself every single day, both blatantly and subtly.
