I’m black and we were promised 40 acres and a mule. Blacks were promised shit too, but we didn’t get it. We don’t get free education, we have an organization that helps certain people get scholarships. Native American are all entitled to free education. We don’t have land that is designated specifically for us. We don’t have reservations. They do. And we were mistreated just as bad if not worse than Native Americans. Don’t start that shit with me.
Here’s what they need to do. Take their asses home. You should know by now that the United States does not honor it’s word when it comes to land. The United States is telling you to your face they don’t owe you nothing. You are not getting anything else. They will not be giving you any more handouts. Those days are over for the Native American. They’ve got nothing else to give you. Whatever they promised your ancestors you can forget about it because it will not be happening. Is that harsh? Of course it is, but it’s the truth. I’m only telling you what you need to hear. You can get your head out of your ass and stop the entitled attitude. They’re not going to give you anything else. This pipeline has already been paid for and it will be done whether you like it or not. Do not consider yourself privileged. Texas was once a part of Mexico. The United States kicked the shit out of them then stole their land too and turned a huge chunk of it to Texas. But they don’t get special privileges. Do you think Mexicans get special privileges? Listen I get it, Religious sacred burial grounds. But the ONLY grounds that the United States considered sacred would be towards veterans who died in their wars or very wealthy folks and the dead presidents. I know of PLENTY places in Florida that USED to be a graveyard. But one in particular has a Walmart on it. Who do you think you are bitch? Just because you’re Native American don’t mean shit to me. All lives matter. And all dead should have a resting place if so desired.
What do you think because your religion is different that you are special? You think your blood is different than mine or anybody else’s? Native Americans are rapists, they are murderers, they commit domestic violence, they commit every crime that every other race does. So I’m not putting you on a pedestal. Frankly I’m sick of it. And all of this senseless crying in the street and protesting it’s just ridiculous. There are bigger fish to fry. That’s why I’m not a fan of Native Americans. Because they want everything to be about them. They are one of the most self centered groups I’ve ever seen. They think because they are having a problem everybody else has to stop. But when black people are having their issues I don’t see them coming to help us. That’s why I don’t respect them as a group. I’ve seen White people stand side by side with blacks fighting for our cause. Ive seen whites stand with Latinos. But where are the Native Americans? MIA. This pipeline has been shown and proven that it will not interfere with their relatives burial grounds. But they still want to cause a commotion. And while you’re outside protesting and getting hosed down, don’t play the victim. You brought it on yourself. GO HOME, BE GRATEFUL FOR WHAT YOU HAVE. And now you have all of these celebrities out there protesting beside you. Well be happy you got the attention you wanted.
Look I’m not racist or prejudiced towards anyone. But fair is fair. This is what America has done. They’ve created a country where certain people who are spoiled rotten and feel like they are entitled to everything. And they have others who have to work very hard to acquire anything. It’s just like a household with a parent who treats their children differently. Where she makes one child work extremely hard for everything but the other child she insists on spoon feeding. Well you have to expect some Animosity between the siblings. AMERICA YOU’RE NOT BEING FAIR! !!!! That’s literally what people are screaming.
Thoughts on my rant?
Yes I got mad writing this because I’m so tired of these people.
Excerpt from Wikipedia on the Pipeline
Many Sioux tribes say that the pipeline threatens the Tribe’s environmental and economic well-being, and would damage and destroy sites of great historic, religious, and cultural significance. Protests at pipeline construction sites in North Dakota began in the spring of 2016 and drew indigenous people, calling themselves water protectors and land defenders, from throughout North America as well as many other supporters, creating the largest gathering of Native Americans in the past hundred years. A number of planned arrests occurred when people locked themselves to heavy machinery in civil disobedience. Over 400 have been arrested in total as of October, 2016.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers conducted a limited review of the route, involving an environmental assessment of river crossings and portions of the project related to specific permits, and issued a finding of no significant impact. It did not carry out an area-wide full environmental impact assessment of the entire effects of the overall project through the four states. Citing potential effects on and lack of consultation with the Native American tribes, most notably the Standing Rock Sioux, in March and April 2016 the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Interior, and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation asked the Army Corps of Engineers to conduct a formalEnvironmental Impact Assessment and issue an Environmental Impact Statement. In July, however, the Army Corps of Engineers approved the water crossing permits for the Dakota Access Pipeline under a “fast track” option, and construction of the disputed section of pipeline continued. Saying “the Corps effectively wrote off the tribe’s concerns and ignored the pipeline’s impacts to sacred sites and culturally important landscapes,” the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe then filed suit against the Army Corps of Engineers, accusing the agency of violating the National Historic Preservation Act and other laws. As of November 14, 2016, the Army Corps of Engineers has stated that, “construction on or under Corps land bordering Lake Oahe cannot occur because the Army has not made a final decision on whether to grant an easement”.
In April, a Standing Rock Sioux elder established a camp as a center for cultural preservation and spiritual resistance to the pipeline, and over the summer the camp grew to thousands of people. In July, ReZpect Our Water, a group of Native American youth, ran from Standing Rock in North Dakota to Washington, DC to raise awareness of what they perceive as a threat to their people’s drinking water and that of everyone who relies on the Missouri and Mississippi rivers for drinking water and irrigation. The young people attempted to deliver more than 100,000 petition signatures to US President Barack Obama asking him to stop the pipeline, but they were not received at the White House. While the protests have drawn international attention and have been said to be “reshaping the national conversation for any environmental project that would cross the Native American land”, there was limited mainstream media coverage of the events in the United States until early September. At that time, construction workers bulldozed a section of land that tribal historic preservation officers had just documented as a historic, sacred site, and when protesters entered the area security workers used attack dogs, which bit at least five of the protesters. The incident was filmed by Democracy Now! and viewed by several million people on YouTube and other social media. In late October, armed soldiers and police with riot gear and military equipment cleared an encampment that was directly in the proposed pipeline’s path. On November 1, Obama announced that his administration is monitoring the movement and has been in contact with the Army Corps to examine the possibility of rerouting the pipeline to avoid lands that Native Americans hold sacred.
