Trump Administration Revokes Tribe's Reservation Status in 'Power Grab'
"A tribe is losing reservation status for its more than 300 acres in Massachusetts, raising fears among Native American groups that other tribes could face the same fate under the Trump administration.
The Mashpee Wampanoag...was notified late on Friday by the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs that it will be rescinding its reservation designation and removing the land from federal trust."
it's so bizarre having everyone talk about quarantine and stuff everywhere
since i'm an essential worker, and the people in my community suck so much i'd be fine if they all died tomorrow, literally nothing about my day-to-day life has changed at all
like, work's slower and easier and that's it
there is a quest where you can convince a dude to take responsibility for his actions, so that's unrealistic
you gotta learn how to distinguish between "vaguing" or "vague meta" based on petty horseshit, on the one hand, & on the other hand people not mentioning names or only venting in semi-private contexts because they're afraid of reprisal. Not even necessarily "afraid of," though that can be; it can just be "tired of."
when people of color push back on racism, there is always a backlash, whether expressed in overt naked aggression or in polite liberal concern-trolling about "etiquette" and "proper" responses. when white people echo the same sentiments, that friction is vastly reduced to totally absent.
I chose to name names, get specific, make the full context clear, & do it in public for the simple reason that as a white Anglo, I could take on *no appreciable risk* for doing so. if you're inclined to critique myass folks for being "vague" about a white woman escaping consequences for caping for a racist, imagine the flack they'd be getting— maybe from you!— if they got specific instead
now i'm gonna shut up because i'm white and am therefore not an expert on why whiteness is bad
if you want experts on why whiteness is bad, follow some PoC. specifically PoC who sometimes make you uncomfortable and feel bad, because that means they're talking real shit.
also, if you're in this shit for the clout cookies, far right youtube is that way
they pay they faithful prophets very well, i understand
until, of course, they drop your ass so hard you come flying out the other end of the planet
myasstodon isn't an angry mob
every single member of myasstodon deals with more racist bullshit in a month than you will in a fuckin' decade if you're white
the only reason you think they're an angry mob is because you've never dealt with a world that doesn't give you cookie for the incredibly difficult task of "not saying the gamer word" or "practicing basic human decency"
none of you ever dealt with a world where standing up for yourself puts you in danger
the fediverse has a whiteness problem
specifically, the "bunch of white folks jerking off about how woke they are problem"
as someone who was more of a virulently racist, sexist, homophobic shitbag as a teenager than anyone most of ya'll have met in person, let me give you a tip:
when someone puts up with your bullshit and tells you how you can do better, you shut the fuck up and you listen to them and you thank them even if they call you a worthless asshole in the process
