I don’t have enough spoons to express how much I hate this. Such vapid sexualization, fetishization and racism as well as sexism.
This pisses me off to no end.
Reminds me of half naked white hipsters dressed as “indians” and that this is what they think we look like and are trying to portray the insatiable native princess trope.
It also reminds me of the time when I went to go vote and the guy asked me what I was and he was like “native chicks are so sexy and exotic, I love westerns, you are beautiful.” ….creepy
Native women are not here for you to degrade in your sick racist fantasies.
HAHA JOKE IS ON HIM.
those “native” women are just white women doing the same old dog-and-pony trick.
SO A ‘SPIRITUAL JEWELLERY MAKER’ ON NY INK GETS A ‘NATIVE WOMAN’ TATTOOED ON HER
‘SMUDGES’ BEFORE SHE GETS IT DONE, WITH SAGE. SHE IS NOT NATIVE, SHE IS NOT AN ELDER.
SAYS SHE ‘CONNECTS WITH MANY CULTURES. INCLUDING NATIVE AMERICAN CULTURE.’
SHE IS NOT NATIVE. THE TATTOO IS A STEREOTYPE. I AM SERIOUSLY ANNOYED THAT A NON NATIVE WOMAN WHO CLAIMS TO BE A ‘SPIRITUAL LEADER’ JUST BURNT SAGE AND ‘SMUDGED’ ON TELEVISION. HOW FUCKING DISGRACEFUL. APPROPRIATION AT ITS BEST.
tattoo shows are full of people on some new type of bullshit.
Getting hate for this but what the hell
I know that a lot of native americans find it offensive for girls (normally white) to wear the war face paintings and the head pieces only to take pictures because “it’s cool”. I get that, I’d be offended too if they did that to me about my culture without actually having any knowledge of it.
However, using the argument (just an example): “how dare you wear that when your ancestors killed my people to get our land?” is not a good argument. It’s not an argument because these girls weren’t the ones who killed your ancestors, it is not their fault. You shouldn’t blame the descendents for what their ancestors did. And some of these girls probably don’t even descend from the soldiers that did all of those horrible things in the past. And you can’t accuse a whole nation for what some have done.
Was it wrong what some white people did in the past to native americans? Yes, of course it was. Is it wrong for some white girls (or any other ethnic background) to wear war painting and head pieces/native american clothing without having any knowledge of their meaning? Yes it is.
But don’t put the blame on everyone for what some dumb girls do to look pretty and cool for pictures, and don’t blame a whole nation for the mistakes that some individuals did in the past. It wasn’t fair, but accusing every white person for it isn’t fair either.
ARE YOU FOR REAL????
HEY, JEWISH PERSON! I KNOW YOUR GRANDPARENTS NARROWLY ESCAPED THE HOLOCAUST, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? I AM NOT HITLER, I DIDN’T DO ANYTHING WRONG, SO YOU SHOULD SHUT UP ABOUT IT AND NOT TALK ABOUT IT. I SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO SLAP YOU WITH A STAR OF DAVID, DISCUSS YOUR INFERIORITIES TO WHITE PEOPLE AT WILL AND USE DERROGATORY LANGUAGE WHEN TALKING TO YOU, BECAUSE I WASN’T PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TRAUMA YOUR FAMILY AND MILLIONS OF OTHER FAMILIES LIVED THROUGH.
HOLY SHIT. WHITE RAGE ALL UP IN THIS BITCH.
COMPLETELY ASININE, CONTRADICTORY POSTS SHOULD BE SCREENED BY TUMBLR FOR IDIOCY BEFORE THEY GO UP.
whenever some white person says “it’s not fair for everyone” it means “it’s mostly fair for me and i want it to stay that way.”
FOR TUMBLR’RS OF THE SENECA OF ALASKA PERSUASION…
JUST A LITTLE APPROPRIATION TO START YOUR EVENING OFF RIGHT
weetz is hilarious.
