I am sorry I have not been online as often as I used to be. I have been taking care of my father and had arranged for many family members to come up to stay for a while to visit with him during his last few days. this has become a transition in my life where I am busy working and being around friends and family more often and so I have had less to spare online. I check my facebook page regularly so if someone wanted to exchange facebook info let me know. some of you were also asking if I am going to be at the Auburn powwow and yes, I will be there again this year, and am willing to meet up. I am wishing all viewers well~

If you blame Native American communities for their poverty, remember that the entire continent was stolen from them.
If you blame Black American communities for their relative poverty, remember that Black Americans were stolen from a continent, trafficked, and enslaved for nearly 300 years.
Tell me again about how your family ‘started from nothing’ when they immigrated. Didn’t they start from whiteness? Seems like a pretty good start.
The American Dream required dual genocides, but tell me again about fairness and equal opportunity. Tell me about democracy, modeled after the Iroquois Confederacy. Tell me your proud heritage, and I will show you the violence that made it so.

White people are a very recent invention, and I do say invention. In America it is very clear that many people came here for many complex reasons, but they were not white before they got here. They were Irish or Polish or English or German, they didn’t become white until they got here. And they had to become white in self-defense because I was here. And I was here for them, to work for them to keep them white.
