  •  Are you white? (6+ / 0-)

    Suppose a team was called the Honkeys, and the mascot was a caricature of a white person? Or maybe the Crackers with a stereotyped Southerner -- bucktoothed (or missing teeth), big ears, barefoot and stupid? Of course that's not going to happen -- white culture is the dominant culture in this country.

    First Nations people were here long before the rest of our ancestors got here -- yet they're treated like their foreigners in their own home. The first step in changing that attitude is to respect them and their culture -- and if that's being "politically correct" rather than just common courtesy, so be it.

    There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- goddammit, you've got to be kind. -- Kurt Vonnegut
