WHO CARES--- OUR GOVERNMENT CONTROLS, SEGREGATES, AND ABUSES, THE AMERICAN INDIANS?!?!?
Daily news reports continue to bombard us with updates about Black Lives Matter and Illegal Lives Matter and endless Racist Propaganda but---I’ve yet to see any news or updates regarding the American Indians.
Checkout google on your computer to learn the plight of American Indians in Pine Ridge, South Dakota--- on a "Indian Reservation" where these real Americans fight daily to stay alive. Every day is a fight for Food, shelter, clean water---while suicide is a daily battle. But, you won’t see or hear about the American Indians’ daily struggles because today's media doesn’t consider America Indians as “news.”
Since the first grade, we were lied- to when we were taught--- "Pilgrims ate a thanksgiving dinner with the "Indians"---like—even then--- we were all “equal.” By now we know--- our own Government “feeds” us what they want us to believe---every damn day.
Okay, America--- just keep screaming and protesting and posting about whose lives matter but….WE BETTER OPEN OUR EYES TO REALITY. NATIVE AMERICANS CONTINUE TO SUFFER IN SILENCE YET--THEIR LIVES MATTER EVER-BIT AS MUCH AS YOUR LIFE--AND MY LIFE. My heart breaks for Native Americans. They are truly our brothers and sisters but---they don’t believe it.
MY HEART HAS ALWAYS BELIEVED THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT WAS AND IS STILL MALICIOUS AND CRUEL TO THE AMERICAN INDIANS. AND, IT APPEARS "OUR" GOVERNMENT CONTINUES TO MISTREAT THE AMERICAN INDIANS--BOTH ON PAPER AND--IN PERSON.
BECAUSE THE INDIANS DON'T HAVE LOUD VOICES OR DON'T BAND-TOGETHER TO DEMAND AND COMPLAIN--OR RIOT, BURN BUILDINGS--OR KEEP "RE-PRODUCING" -- AMERICANS SEEM TO "FORGET"--- INDIANS ARE STILL HERE AND THEY ARE AMERICANS!!!!
YES. INDIANS ARE AMERICANS. IN FACT, THEY WERE AMERICANS BEFORE ANY OF US AND YET--OUR GOVERNMENT TREATS THEM LIKE A GROUP OF LEPERS--BY ISOLATING THEM, IGNORING THEM, EVEN PLACING THEM ON "RESERVATIONS" TO KEEP THEM "SEPARATE AND APART."
I INVITE YOU TO CHECK THE FACTS. OUR GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN HOLDING AMERICAN INDIANS “HOSTAGE” FOR GENERATIONS. HOW IS THIS ALLOWED WHEN WE HAVE GROUPS WHO ACT AS WATCHDOGS TO INSURE “EQUAL” FREEDOM AND LIBERTIES FOR ALL AMERICANS? WHY IS THEIR PLIGHT BEING IGNORED BY THE LIKES OF THE AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION?!?!?
WAKE UP. IN 2002, when I came back from living in China, I tried to get a job teaching Indian children with special needs. I was told “our” government has an Education Department that meets all the educational needs of Indians. When I asked for more details---I was informed-- Indian children require Indian teachers who can better-understand their traditions and their language traits. IF THAT ISN'T SEGREGATION---JUST INVESTIGATE BLACK SEGREGATION –IN THE FIFTIES!
The on-going control directed at the American Indians is serious- political BS! WHY has the federal Government been allowed to limit, segregate, and completely-control American Indians for endless generations---AND---WHY-IN-THE-HELL--- DO POLITICIANS CONTINUE TO ALLOW IT?!?!?!
