Anonymous asked: As a Native Studies minor in University, I can assure you that I am well aware of their culture. Someone said that where I live is mostly white people, but my towns percentage of indigenous people lies at 64%. I'm not saying racism against them doesn't disgust me, because it certainly exists and I stand against it. But when I specifically get targeted by an indigenous person identifying me as a "white girl", "white bitch" and threatening me literally after only SMILING AT THEM. That's a problem

mrpresidentbee:

lastrealindians:

And having a Native Studies minor doesn’t give you a pass to judge people on the basis of race, either. Especially Natives. One could even argue that you should know better, but a degree from any university let alone a minor doesn’t mean one is open minded or enlightened and we recognize that. I don’t think we’re seeing the whole picture here. I’ve heard stories like this before. It’s reminiscent of ones told by white people who live in Rez border towns, which are often extremely prejudice against Natives. Somehow Natives are violent criminals or drunks or mean to white people, when the entire town actively oppresses Natives and excludes them and held a lynching or 2 in the past. Our culture is more than a few pictures in a textbook. We recognize when people are disingenuous, looking down their noses at us, or just plain tourists. If you think we’re so terrible, perhaps just leave us alone. We owe you nothing.

To the Anon in the ask: I’m white too. Let me tell you a story.

I grew up in Arizona with white parents who were school teachers by profession. We moved around a lot because they took a lot of seasonal work in the summers and taught in Reservation schools during the year. I lived on and off the Hualapai Rez, Big Mountain, and a couple of other reservations. When I was little and living in Peach Springs, some of the Hualapai kids would spit on me and call me names when I crossed the playground. It was a horrible experience that I didn’t understand at the time.

When I was off at college I started researching the intersections between my parents and my white cultural background and the cultures and experiences of the Peoples I’d grown up around, I discovered something very, very important that helped me appropriately contextualize what I’d experienced growing up.

When Native people harass or curse at white people, their anger is completely justified. It is justified when it’s directed at you, or at me as a kid. Yes, really. 

There is nothing in your personal history that can even begin to approach the horror that white people in North America have visited upon and continue to visit upon Native peoples. My inheritance as a white US citizen is the legacy of white supremacy, of hundreds of years of calculating genocide, the systematic kidnapping and abuse of children, the theft of resources and land and culture and languages, the continuing desecration of sacred items and spaces, the ongoing rapes and murders of indigenous women, and yes, the well-earned hatred of some people who look at my skin and know what it has meant for many generations.

The inheritances of Native peoples in this country are none of my business, not unless I’m personally invited to be present (this includes spaces and cultures I was raised in proximity to and boy did it take me a good few years to get over that particular sense of entitlement). No one Native owes me anything. I owe Native people respect, particularly because I have the incredible privilege of being white in a white supremacist society, and there isn’t anything that can erase that power imbalance short of the complete overthrow of that system of oppression.

I do have my own inheritance, like I said above, and my own struggle, and that’s the fight against racism and white supremacy. It means being quiet in Native spaces and keeping my words on Native issues to myself unless it’s to signal boost Native people who are already speaking. Largely it mean educating and checking myself for the rest of my life and getting in a lot of arguments with my fellow white people about cultural appropriation, the nonexistence of “reverse racism”, and the whitewashed vision most of us have of US history. It means constantly working to get my facts straight within a mainstream culture that was designed and built on the lie that white is better, that Native people and cultures are conquests bound for museum display cases, that the days of cultural genocide are over, that there’s nothing left for us white people to do but sit back and enjoy our shopping bags full of Urban Outfitters and feel weird about how our relatives root for the Washington *******s. 

Your University minor isn’t a “Good White Person” badge, Anon. You’re asking the wrong questions and getting mad about the wrong things. The internet is at your disposal, and there are a thousand ways to learn about the legacy of white supremacy and checking your privilege, and about the history of this “them” you wrote to lastrealindians about. Don’t take my word for it though:

I will be forever indebted to the online works of Dr. Jessica R. Metcalfe (Turtle Mountain Chippewa) and Adrienne Keene (Cherokee Nation) for giving me a place to start connecting the dots.

HERE is also a great list of links from the wtfwhiteprivilege tumblr that they’ve been kind enough to put together for the well-intentioned white person. I sincerely hope you check these out, because it sounds like there were some serious gaps in your University classes.

We know why.

Don’t forget Charlie Sheen. He’s been arrested for domestic violence at least six times and shot a woman. With a gun. And he’s still got a career.

Sean Penn tied Madonna to a chair and beat her. Fuck him. Fuck all of them.

Michael Fassbender
Matthew Fox
John Lennon
Paul McCartney
Ringo too I’m pretty sure
Phil Spector, although he’s now in jail for killing a lady he beat on Ronnie Spector for years and still got into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Axl Rose
Vince Neil
Sean Penn
Charlie Sheen
Jim Morrison tried to set fire to his girlfriend
Stephen Segal
Tommy Lee
Ozzy Osbourne
Mickey Rourke
Bill Murray
Gary Busey
Tom Sizemore
Christian Slater
James Caan
Josh Brolin
Edward Furlong
I could go on.
The point isn’t that the men on the left don’t deserve everything bad they have coming to them.  The point is where the fuck is all the outrage when the men on the right do it.  So many of our pop culture heroes are abusers and nobody seems to care.
Like, even if we’re gonna stick to the NFL, Ben Roethlisberger patiently sat out his six game suspension for rape and continued on with his career with little outrage. 
If we’re really going to care now about ostracizing perpetrators of domestic violence, we got a lotta slack to pick up.

Adding more to the list:
Gary Oldman - hit ex-wife Donya Fiorentino repeatedly about the face with a telephone receiver in front of their two children.
Sean Connery - thinks an openhanded slap is justified if a woman is a “bitch, or hysterical, or bloody-minded.”
Josh Brolin - was arrested for abusing Diane Lane in 2004.
Glen Campbell - beat Tanya Tucker and on one occasion knocked her teeth out. Glen actually received a tribute at the 2012 Grammy Awards—the same year that Chris Brown received so much vitriol for performing.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers - was arrested in 2005 after he was accused of beating up his teenage girlfriend and throwing a cellphone at her. The 27-year-old actor later made a counter allegation that the 18-year-old girlfriend had assaulted him. The warring couple were both questioned at a London police station before being released on bail. He was also verbally abusive and threatening to a woman who tried to help him up off the floor during one of his drunken airport episodes. “Don’t you know who I am?” Yes dear, you’re the King of fucking England.
Harry Morgan - best known for his role as Col. Sherman Potter in the television series “MASH,” was accused in July 1996 of beating his wife.
Sean Bean - has been arrested for harassing an ex girlfriend and has been reported for domestic assault.
Tommy Lee -pleaded no contest in April 1998 to a felony charge of spousal battery against his wife, former “Baywatch” star Pamela Anderson. Lee received a three-year suspended prison sentence, was required to spend 180 days in jail and ordered to pay a total of $6,200 to a shelter for battered women. Anderson, who filed for divorce shortly after the incident, reportedly had hoped her husband would be spared jail time.
Roman Polanski - raped of a 13-year-old girl before fleeing the country.
Eminem - Wrote the song “Kim” about abusing his wife.
Here’s the lyrics: 
Kim: “Baby you’re so precious/Daddy’s so proud of you/Sit down bitch/If you move again I’ll beat the shit out of you”
Kim: “There’s a four year old boy lyin’ dead with a slit throat/In your living room, ha-ha/What you think I’m kiddin’ you?/You loved him didn’t you?”
Kim: “[sound of his wife choking] NOW BLEED! BITCH BLEED!/BLEED! BITCH BLEED! BLEED!”
Wrote a song, “‘97 Bonnie and Clyde,” about murdering his wife and disposing of his body in the presence of his child
'97 Bonnie and Clyde: “Oh where’s mama? She’s takin a little nap in the trunk/Oh that smell (whew!) da-da musta runned over a skunk”
'97 Bonnie and Clyde: “And mama said she wants to show how far she can float/And don’t worry about that little boo-boo on her throat/It’s just a little scratch - it don’t hurt, her was eatin/dinner while you were sweepin and spilled ketchup on her shirt”
'97 Bonnie and Clyde: “Here, you wanna help da-da tie a rope around this rock? (yeah!)/We’ll tie it to her footsie then we’ll roll her off the dock”
Made fun of Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson’s domestic abuse case in “The Real Slim Shady”
Elvis Presley - According to "Elvis Presley. The Man. The Life. The Legend." written by Pamela Keogh. Elvis was immensely abusive towards Priscilla. He was stationed overseas during WWII where they met. He often lied to her parents to get her to spend the night. He would have sex with her, and would give her amphetamines. (The amphetamines were distributed by the Army to help him sleep, and he gave them to everybody.) When the war ended and he went home, he forced her to come with him. She was expected to sit at home while he had affairs. He didn’t even want to marry her, it was simply a publicity stunt. Elvis was immensely controlling. He made Priscilla dress the way he wanted (and would yell at and insult her when she wore something that he didn’t approve of), do her hair the way he wanted, and wear as much make up as he wanted her to. 
Mel Gibson - assaulted, struck with his fist and choked, his ex girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva while she was still holding her baby. He then went on towards the pool, screaming and yelling and then told Oksana to get the ‘fuck’ out, and went to get his gun.
