If you think all Black people’s blogs are “social justice” blogs, you’re racist.

I read some newspaper article recently that pretty much summed up Tumblr and the responses to it this way—privileged people who come here are shocked to see marginalized people talking about their experiences, so they think everyone’s just obsessed with social justice, rather than talking about their own lives.

Indigenous people continued to resist by burning settlements and killing and capturing settlers. As an incentive to recruit fighters, colonial authorities introduced a program of scalp hunting that became a permanent and long-lasting element of settler warfare against Indigenous nations. During the Pequot War, Connecticut and Massachusetts colonial officials had offered bounties initially for the heads of murdered Indigenous people and later for only their scalps, which were more portable in large numbers. But scalp hunting became routine only in the mid-1670’s, following an incident on the northern frontier of the Massachusetts colony. The practice began in earnest in 1697 when settler Hannah Dustin, having murdered ten of her Abenaki captors in a nighttime escape, presented their ten scalps to the Massachusetts General Assembly and was rewarded with bounties for two men, two women, and six children.

Dustin soon became a folk hero among New England settlers. Scalp hunting became a lucrative commercial practice. The settler authorities had hit upon a way to encourage settlers to take off on their own or with a few others to gather scalps, at random, for the reward money. “In the process,” John Grenier points out, “they established the large-scale privatization of war within American frontier communities.” Although the colonial government in time raised the bounty for adult male scalps, lowered that for adult females, and eliminated that for Indigenous children under ten, the age and gender of victims were not easily distinguished by their scalps nor checked carefully. What is more, the scalp hunter could take the children captive and sell them into slavery. These practices erased any remaining distinction between Indigenous combatants and noncombatants and introduced a market for Indigenous slaves. Bounties for Indigenous scalps were honored even in absence of war. Scalps and Indigenous children became means of exchange, currency, and this development may even have created a black market. Scalp hunting was not only a profitable privatized enterprise but also a means to eradicate or subjugate the Indigenous population of the Anglo-American Atlantic seaboard. The settlers gave a name to the mutilated and bloody corpses they left in the wake of scalp-hunts: redskins.

This way of war, forged in the first century of colonization – destroying Indigenous villages and fields, killing civilians, ranging and scalp hunting – became the basis for the wars against the Indigenous across the continent into the late nineteenth century.

The origin of the word “Redskins.” (Source)

This is an excerpt from An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz. The book will be released later this month (September 2014).

I’m gonna focus on women here.

Fact Sheet: Violence Against Aboriginal Women in Canada. Several quotes:

  • Aboriginal women 15 years and older are 3.5 times more likely to experience violence than non-Aboriginal women
  • 27% of Aboriginal women reported experiencing 10 or more assaults by the same offender, as opposed to 18% of non-Aboriginal women.
  • Between 1997 and 2000, homicide rates of Aboriginal females were almost seven times higher than those of non-Aboriginal females.
  • NWAC’s research indicates that homicides involving Aboriginal women are more likely to go unsolved. Only 53% of murder cases in NWAC’s Sisters In Spirit database have been solved, compared to 84% of all murder cases across the country.

Loretta Saunders, and Inuit student who was researching the disappearance/murder of Aboriginal women in canada, was murdered

Indigenous Canadian women are suffering a murder epidemic:

  • NWAC spent years working on a comprehensive study of missing and murdered native women and girls, called Sisters In Spirit. As numbers increased and awareness of the problem grew, the government cut off NWAC’s grant.

  • “We thought we would be conducting the research another five years and it didn’t happen,” said NWAC President Michèle Audette.

  • Cheryl Maloney, of NWAC’s Nova Scotia chapter, says the government was blatant in its efforts to silence the outspoken group: “The stipulation was that you couldn’t use Sisters In Spirit as the name of the project. They said unless you’re following the new rules, you won’t get any funding. […] It was Prime Minister (Stephen) Harper forcing us to be quiet about the issue,” Maloney said.

  • According to the Canadian Department of Justice, Aboriginal women and girls — from Inuit, Métis, First Nations, and other tribes — are three and a half times more likely to become victims of violence.

You know the boarding school thing that white people did to the native americans? canada too

Aboriginal women represent only 4.3 per cent of the total female population, yet 16 per cent of all female homicide victims are aboriginal.

So yeah, it’s a problem. I’m sure you can find more information through Google, but I think I’ve got a good start here for you.

We watched this documentary in my humanities class on disney and their racist portrayals of PoC in their films. Its actually horrific. Like I was sick to my stomach. I think it was called commercializing disney kids or something like that.

Today my Christian mother and atheist father got mad at me for saying I don't believe in religion or god. They went on to tell me I was ignorant for not wanting to believe and that they should've made me go to church when I was younger. I just wanted to get your opinion on this and what you think? Personally I think it's just what I believe in and what makes sense to me and I just want my parents to accept that.

Thats very rude and unacceptable of your parents to say that to you. Im sorry to hear that. They should accept your beliefs regardless.
