Kill the Food Source
Today I saw a man with a Jesuit Shirt on and so I asked him if he had reconciled the fact that the Catholic Church played a large role in the genocide of the American Indians. He told me no, and I felt a guilt or shame from him but he went on to say that he believed it happened all over the world. I disagreed because the Europeans wiped out 95% of the Indigenous peoples of the Western Hemisphere, and what other continent has seen this type of distructions. He also said disease killed a lot of people but when you see the food source of the Lakota and other plains tribes wiped out you can see it was a system to take the land and resource.
We have compounded problems and I struggle because I do not believe the Mascot Issue is the topic we should be worried about for now. If were able to take care of the issues we have today the Mascot Issue will take care of itself. I am committed to keep sharing my thoughts about the issues I feel our important.
