Gangs-the latest pariah of the nations and the most virulent of present day cultural genocidal entities.
Raises the question for me for all the talk of groups like the Akicita and Strong Heart Warrior Society where the hell are they? Why isn’t this something they are proactively addressing in the midst of all the grist mill rhetoric of tradition they so eagerly espouse?
Why aren’t liberators, website owners, and walkers and talkers focusing on this issue instead of avoiding it like the plague? Are gangs part of their constituency, their homeys, or would there be a decline in those donations if they were to? Would it mar the image of the people?
Is it that in having established their own gang and roamed at will for decades they find themselves in decline now due to age and not so brave anymore, no longer so “dedicated” to the welfare of the people?
Aging thespians who haven’t what it takes to either exit the stage quietly or in a grand finale of selflessly doing some good. Aging thespians clinging to who they think they used to be and so caught up in the pursuit of money and attention they would show up for the grand opening of a telephone booth.
It’s always easier to say a white man raped an indigenous woman than one of our own-easier to say a white man stole from us than one of own. Easier to affix blame for a drug and alcohol problem to everything else than to say that person needs to get their act together. A willing embrace of victimhood to deny any responsibility.
In taking this approach it amounts to little more than enabling a cultural genocide of epic proportions.
The nations have long been held hostage and just as the first few steps are taken in the courts to remediate that a new hostage taker in the form of gangs is allowed entry.
Can anyone point to a single reference to this anywhere on the net that has been posted by their hero of choice-can they show me where the liberators with their websites and fanned fb pages have addressed this? Can anyone show me where AIM is addressing this? Is that a no? If so perhaps someone can offer an explanation why.
Some dilapidated graffiti smeared government funded community center or basketball court doesn’t cut it-what is required is to get out in the streets and address it. What is required is for people to say enough and take back what is theirs, what is required is for the leadership of elders to be recognized and re established, and for parents to set an example and parent-that doesn’t have a damn thing to do with the government or the white man.
Tribal leadership needs to forget about stuffing their pockets and favoritism-they need to step up and bulldoze the vacant houses where the nightcrawlers gather-they need to clean up the debris that litters every rez-in short, they need to place the welfare of the ones they represent first for a change and adopt a policy of zero tolerance instead of some feigned political correctness.
Follow the link below and read some of the comments-ask yourself if this coincides with your image of the noble red man, with native pride, and then ask yourself why it isn’t being addressed? Ask yourself what kind of leader, hero, organization, or liberator ignores all this?
For some reason when clicking on the below it link it takes you to a page that says it can’t be found-but if you copy/paste the link it works fine. Either that or when on the page after clicking the link look to right and click on “go to blog homepage”.
