What's the Native issue like? Particularly in Manitoba?

From what I've gathered, their reserves are cesspits, the chiefs spend the government money on khamri and think Lysol is an acceptable beverage.

As far as oppressed minorities go, the current generation of Native Americans are in an excellent position, the amount of government subsidies they receive is unimaginable. In Alberta they all get a $1000 buck check as soon as they hit 18, yet the vast majority spend it on alcohol.

Now consider that this it is in fact the majority, and not the minority who lay around passed out in the street begging for change and you've got yourself a full-blown social problem.

I'm not Canadian, I've never been there, so none of this based off observation, but it's likely accurate, right?

this is akin to that collective indictment i hear often where all somalis are regarded "welfare collecting good for nothing social burden"

in any given majority on minority abuse ratio....the struggles of any marginalized community will largely be viewed as "self infliction" specially by the ever imposing eye that keeps them in such detrimental cycle...but what's unfortunate is when you hear people from such disadvantaged communities get tongue tricked to subject the same rhetoric on people in similar situation.....(like this nomad who thinks all natives have it made...yet somehow they magically designed their predicament to its current unfavorable condition) :roll:

I am not exactly of the mindset hellbent on blaming the "bogeyman sate", out to get the minorities..but it's mind numbing ignorant to think that the current conditions of aboriginal people in Canada, specially in native reserves is one of "self infliction"....it is far from that, matter fact, it is the long and disparaging effort of the Canadian Government's attempt to "weedout" native/aboriginal culture through gov. run initiatives like the "aggressive assimilation" policies drafted in the 19th century. with these policies...

residential schools were established with the assumption that aboriginal culture was unable to adapt to a rapidly modernizing society. It was believed that native children could be successful if they assimilated....the government felt children were easier to mould than adults, and the concept of a boarding school was the best way to prepare them for life in mainstream society.

these schools were definitely not set up with "good intentions", rather they served as portal for decades of continued abuse in many folds and psychological damage for generations after generations of native children...

the Canadian Gov. later acknowledged its mistreatment of natives and recently issued an apology and set up compensation for the victims, but it maybe too little too late to correct the social ailments this has created within native communities...how can you expect a community to recover from that any time soon?

So it's to blame on the self-defeatist attitude they adopted as a result of being defeated by a more civilized force in the European which left pretty much the entire culture and racial group as literal human waste, unwilling to make a single positive change, regressing even with countless concessions granted to them by the PC liberal government?

PC liberal government?

is that a new party?....i didn't know the liberals and tories got together? :mrgreen:

as for your question... i told you that past misgivings of a government have shaped future fallout of an entire community, any progress will have to come from a grassroots efforts, but you gotta be able to identify the problem and why it is there before you correct

bottom line....you're looking at the common native man....and i'm telling you the common native problem

as 2pac best put it.. "i didn't create the problem....i simply diagnosed it. :mrgreen:

Here's the thing: Cultural relativism doesn't exist. Not all cultures are equal. No they f-king aren't. If they were, then they'd all still be around, obviously. Inferior cultures get raped and fade to obscurity. It's part of the circle of life. It's called cultural Darwinism, people. It's not racist (culture can transcend race, just as race can transcend culture), it's just un-PC and by extension reviled by liberals and other god-forsaken people.

Native Americans are genetically predisposed to alcoholism, yet they continue the self-destructive behavior. These aren't people you can reason with. It's one of the few cases where eugenics should be pursued.

This sounds rudimentary, I wrote a 30 page paper (single-spaced) detailing Native American history, genetic-makeup and current predicaments.

They're undesirables. Look at the Somalia Affair. Degenerate people :down:
