A ‘raced-based genocide’ of Indigenous people in Canada

The report itself noted that Canada must own up to “colonial genocide,” which often goes unrecognized because it consists of a “slow death” carried out over centuries of policies, actions and omissions that cumulatively reflect an intention to destroy Indigenous Peoples.

Just add the word colonial onto anything. Remember when AOC was talking about Cauliflower being colonial.
lol that's white genocide theory

Is it really genocide when they are destroying themselves?

It would be like calling someone who commits suicide a "murderer" - these words are explicitly describing the actions of one entity against another.

Shhh, you aren't supposed to look behind the curtain to see that "brown people" can be their own versions of Nazis too.

It's a messy process because there are lots of factors as to why Native Canadians never seem to get out of the hole:

1. Many don't want to leave the reserve. Natives lose some perks when they leave (like tax free if you stay on a reserve)

2. Depending which group you're part of, you get more or less freebie money from the government. So many of the young Natives self destruct into goofing around and spending. I'm pretty sure every non-Native wouldn't mind getting $10,000 or $100,000 and subsidized university fees when they are 20. Many Natives use that money for booze drugs and buying ATVs and other useless shit

3. Sometimes the money given by the government goes to the group's chief or leader and he determines how it's spliced out. Some are assholes and keep most of it, and then don't even bother living on the reserve with the rest of their people. They live hours away in a nice house

4. Natives want the hand out money, but as little federal policies as possible. They want to govern themselves and take the cash. Considering what a trainwreck it is up in those reserves, you'd think they'd want federal help, but they don't

5. Group leaders strongarm the community. You'd think it would be easy to get rid of a corrupt chief. Not easy to do when voting processes are sketchy and the chief can hire goons to pressure people to re-elect him

World can learn from Canada regarding findings of MMIWG probe: Trudeau

Speaking in France today following a D-Day anniversary ceremony at Juno Beach, Trudeau said that the work of the commission was important to establish what has happened, adding the focus now needs to be on respect for Indigenous Peoples and putting an end to terrible violence in Canada and elsewhere in the world.

By now, we should all be smart enough to treat these kinds of stories as satire. Our part is to just keep up the fight against allowing 16 year olds and other non-informed groups to start making decisions on these types of things.

This is currently one of the hottest trends in the deceptive media. Single out some story about a "victim group" which these days can be anything other than straight, white, men. Find a way these people could be wronged. Even if it was because of a muslim, black, transgender, person, the public doesn't need to know that. Exclude the facts, and let it imply that whitey did it, and we need action. Use said action of underclass losers to vote in money-making laws for the elites behind the nonsense.

Good to see we can discuss this here. Old GAF would ban everyone for victim-blaming. We all know that when a large community of people self-destruct, it is never their fault.
