If you lose people in your life for expressing your honest opinion on issues important to you, you’re not doing anything wrong. In fact you’re doing something very right because that means you stood up for something despite not getting any kind of pat on the back.
Over 100 million native people were murdered.
100 million people were tortured, starved, beaten, raped, and robbed.
100 million people and we have no vast, well lit, upscale museum. We’ve been given no night time specials or “holidays” commemorating our loss.
Instead we’ve been given pictures of fucking thin white girls running around in headdresses and white people telling us we need to pay taxes for building things on our own land while they live on land they stole from us.
