‘No More Peter Pan?’

Here’s where ‘Reconciliation’ becomes just another word for cultural bullying. At some point, there has to be a limit to aboriginal ‘sensitivities’. After all, ‘tolerance’ — like ‘reconciliation’ — is a TWO-way street:

“Cardston is a small Mormon town in southwest Alberta and right across the street is the Kainai ‘Nation’ {a ‘nation’ of 12,258 people}, or Blood Tribe. The people of the Blood Tribe frequent Cardston to shop or see a doctor, but they say doing those things includes experiencing racism…

“An example was a ‘Peter Pan’ play put on by the local theatre company. Continue reading ‘No More Peter Pan?’

‘More Logo Bullying’

“An ‘indigenous’ {‘Siberian settler’} parent appeared before the {unconstitutional} ‘Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario’ on Monday, alleging that the city of Mississauga, Ont., discriminated against him by allowing “racist” names and logos of minor league teams in local arenas. 

“Brad Gallant’s children played organized hockey at city-run rinks in Mississauga, where he said banners and trophies bearing the logos of teams like the ‘Mississauga Braves’ and the ‘Lorne Park Ojibwa’ created

“a hostile environment.”

‘It’s That Time Of Year Again’

Once again, aboriginal activists  are using Hallowe’en costumes as an excuse to attack other Canadians: 

“Halloween is usually a time of fun for the whole family but Native groups in Montreal are upset over costumes that they are calling ‘racist’. Some protesters have taken to protesting the outfits by placing stickers reading “We’re Not Costumes” on them in Halloween stores.

“Jessica Deer (@Kanhehsiio), a member of the ‘Kahnawake {The racist, Segregationist Mohawk reserve} Youth Forum’, was arrested on Friday for placing the stickers.

“The police told us either we had to pay for everything that was damaged or face charges for vandalism or mischief”, she said, adding that she was forced to buy more than $1,500 worth of costumes.

‘Symbol Of Colonialism’

“Forget Halloween costumes and yoga, there’s a new symbol of cultural appropriation—the canoe. 

“According to Misao Dean, ‘Professor of English’ at the University of Victoria {of course}, the canoe can be a symbol of ‘colonialism’, ‘imperialism’ and ‘genocide’ due to history. She also accused the canoers of ‘cultural appropriation’ because they are primarily ‘white’ men and have a ‘privileged’ place in society.

‘The ‘Indigenization’ and ‘Racialization’ of Canadian Universities’

“In Canada, in particular, one of the things I think about is many Canadians identify as immigrants … There are many stories of survival, hardship, struggle that go with that. Turning all those people, all of a sudden, into ‘settlers’ who’ve displaced ‘indigenous’ peoples is tricky and quite often leads to acrimony.” {!}  –Jill Scott, Queen’s University professor in the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures

“There’s a new {racial} buzzword rolling off the tongues of Canada’s university administrators: ‘indigenization’. 

“Campuses are looking for new ways to welcome aboriginal students, recruit aboriginal faculty members and embed ‘indigenous’ content in the curriculum. Some schools are even requiring all students — no matter what their specialization — to take at least one ‘indigenous’ studies course before they graduate.

“…Some academics are urging schools to proceed cautiously: Don’t lose sight of the whole Canadian story. Continue reading ‘The ‘Indigenization’ and ‘Racialization’ of Canadian Universities’

‘Save The Gretzkys!’

“The wife of hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, Janet, is facing the wrath of social media after she posted an ‘Instagram’ photo of her daughter Emma and three other girls dressed in Aboriginal clothing.

“Dozens of commenters wrote to Gretzky, lambasting the hockey wife for photographing the girls in traditional ‘First Nations’ headdresses. They accused her of ‘cultural appropriation’ and ‘misunderstanding aboriginal culture’.  Continue reading ‘Save The Gretzkys!’

‘Deconstructing The Aboriginal Industry’

“The ‘Aboriginal Industry’ favours Segregation over Integration…”

“The generally dysfunctional character of aboriginal community leadership and administration remains deeply entrenched because of the influence of an industry of lawyers, consultants and other professionals that benefit from the status quo of native dependency.

“These opportunists encourage a culture of opposition – to virtually any government attempt to improve aboriginal conditions – on the basis of entitlement for past injustices.

“They then, through their advocacy “research”, construct apologetics that justify aboriginal isolation and marginalization.”  Continue reading ‘Deconstructing The Aboriginal Industry’
