"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]
