I’ve wanted to make something like this for a while now. Think of it as the angry lovechild of This is Not Grunge and My Culture is Not a Trend. My goal is to call out and educate as many people as possible who use the #native american tag (among others) to post shit like this:
Because while there are many awe-inspiring, beautiful aspects of native cultures, this crap is nothing short of ugly, racist, and insulting.
How you can help!
Send me links for the resources page! Articles, blogs, tumblrs, videos, anything relating to anti-native racism, cultural appropriation, etc. I’m also interested in making a list of awesome native/anti-racist tumblrs, so gimme a shout if you’ve got one!
Submit an offensive post! Anti-appropriation articles and graphics (like this awesome picture) are welcome as well.
Tell people why their posts are offensive. There’s strength in numbers, so the more people who reblog a racist/appropriating post with commentary, the more the offenders are likely to get it. Whether it’s a quick, “Yo, this is racist” or a paragraphs-long rant on why it’s not cool for a white kid to get a tattoo of a skull in a war bonnet, every little bit helps.
I’d also like it if you followed this blog, lolol.
