I may not look like it, but I DO have Native American in me. (but so do quite a few Americans… I don’t think some people realize this.)
BASICALLY they say people are being racist by wearing head dresses made of feathers, sitting in the cross legged position, and raising their right hand. I don’t believe that they are making fun of anyone or trying to hurt someone’s feelings.
I saw a picture of a (white) family doing this on there, and the owner was very upset. It’s only a picture… how can you possibly know WHAT exactly was going on? Maybe they actually WERE teaching the little girl about the culture and history (There was a t-pee and everything…yeah.. it was little crappy looking but so?) You have no idea.
And… there were a lot tribes in many regions here in the USA. Do you yourself know every practice and tradition used by all of them? I doubt you do. In fact.. that was a very long time ago and I bet some things were lost (sadly).
And I don’t believe that they think ALL Native Americans are like that … especially today. I think you are looking for problems to be quite honest. Slow your roll…and calm down. Perhaps you should find a way to spread knowledge about it instead of just calling people racist and typing “sigh” under photos. And you are assuming A LOT from a small photo.
Hey everyone! Our experiences with racism as minorities are silly! You can trust this girl, because she has “Native American” in her, and is thus a reliable source. More so say, than people who actually live and participate in authentic native communities.
White families sitting around a tee-pee making stereotypical hand gestures in costumes are a totally valid expression of first nations culture! We do it all the time. In fact, I’ve got to go, my bi-weekly mid-afternoon living room pow-wow is about to start, and it’s my turn to set up the
sammyinsanity is indeed insane
let’s give leeway to a bunch of people who did something culturally insensitive to a minority who’re STILL suffering from centuries of mistreatment, and get all offended when they’re called out on their cultural insensitivity. It’s not like the culture is super important to its respective people. DUH
You’re doing something wrong if you’re defending actions that are offensive and culturally insensitive, especially since these actions in today’s American society are not considered to be problems.
suspenseful read for me.
So I started crying. nbd

The rape of Nanking by Iris Chang.
(found Via here. Trigger warning for photos of disembodied heads.)
When people live extremely structured lives it makes sense that, when put in a situation without much structure at all, they will go off the handle and not really know when to stop.
Since so many people are reblogging this quote again, I’ve been very interested in its newfound popularity. This recent comment in particular caught my eye - I think it’s aiming for something that is correct but I don’t know that we could call something like the Rape of Nanjing unstructured, necessarily.
But - and I do think this is what happened - it does read exactly like the Stanford Prison experiment on a very real and very horrifying level. For anyone unfamiliar, the Stanford Prison Experiment was done by students and a professor at Stanford. A group of people was divided into ‘prisoners’ in the basement classrooms acting as the prison/cells and Prison Guards. The Professor became the Warden. They found that within six days, they had to shut down the experiment entirely. Enough ‘prisoners’ opted out: Prisoners had become passive, and Prison Guards inflicted physical and emotional abuse upon their prisoners. People began to internalize their roles of power, or lack thereof.
In otherwords, it’s the very structure of so much power that makes someone into the kind of person who would do this in their capacity as a soldier/guard. There is always structure when power is involved, and it can always be used and abused when hiding behind machine guns and uniforms.
According to one Japanese journalist embedded with Imperial forces at the time, “The reason that the [10th Army] is advancing to Nanking quite rapidly is due to the tacit consent among the officers and men that they could loot and rape as they wish.”
Sadly, their structure from the very beginning was to do just that - abuse their power. This wasn’t chaotic. This was planned. And they followed through. That to me, is what is so horrorific. The Army intended to do this.
