Shut Up Cracker by linawifeofL Shut Up Cracker by linawifeofL
Inspired by shit like this [link]

"I can tell you if your animist beliefs are okay because I'm part Native American."

"I can wear this war bonnet to a Halloween party and it's not offensive, I'm part Native American so I have an opinion on this."

"Well sure you can call them "red Indians", it's not racist because I'm part Indian and I give you permission."

Oh my fucking god fuck you. How many of the people who do the "I'm part Native American" thing have actually taken part in any of their tribe's traditions and culture? How many have felt the effects of racism against indigenous peoples' first-hand? How many have seen the garbage dumps that are reservations, or been told by other tribesmembers their peoples' history and struggles against the colonialism that continues against them to this day? How many have taken an active effort to learn about their own tribespeople instead of hopping on Google and searching "Native American culture" (because all native peoples are the same, just like there's one African culture, one Asian country, and there is one European language)? Fucking none, mommy or daddy once said that great-great-great grandma was a Cherokee princess so they threw a dreamcatcher up on the wall and sparkly wolf gifs on their blog and act like they are the spokesperson for and authority on every indigenous American who ever existed. It makes me sick, how fucking dare you go and appropriate a culture you have no part of. I could spit in someone's face for this.

EDIT: [link] THIS! THIS! THIS EXACTLY!

I agree. It is very offensive to the people who are or had ancestors who were part of the culture if you had nothing to do with the culture in the first place. I get fed up with people misusing the word "Chav" to describe poorer people. The word "Chav" originally meant "Children" in gypsy language. This is coming from someone whose ancestors were gypsies.

It's also really offensive to indians if you use them as a drug reference. I'm not sure if you've ever seen it, but it's when people say "We should be like Native Americans and live like them more." And then they go take a tab of acid. That's extremely offensive to native Americans.

This goes for those "Guidos" with last names like "Cook", "Brown", or "Jones" too. 

Gave my friend the Italian middle finger the other day because we were joking around. (Texas Longhorn symbol)
And she asked me why my hand was in such a position, I don't really like rock music
keep in mind she has an English surname.
I told her what is was, and she's like, "Don't try that with me bitch, I'm Italian!"

I just glared at her. She probably wouldn't know what witchcraft I am trying.
And here I am trying to convince people my surname ISN'T "Alfredo".

But we're talking about Indians here....

Yeah. The "I'm part ____!" Shit is fucking pointless in general. I support priding yourself by your nationality, not your ethnicity. It doesn't matter if you're black, white, Asian, latino, or Samoan. You're American if you're a citizen of this country. 

There needs to be a stamp for this!

I agree with this, same goes for the latinos and Latinas who grew up paler than Casper.

Technically if you were born and raised in America then you are in fact a Native American, regardless of you're ethnicity. I mean you can't exactly call a person who's parents are American Indians, but who was born and raised in Russia a Native American.

Have you read 'Everything You Know About Indians Is Wrong?' You might enjoy it.
