That is not acceptable.
What isn't acceptable is the silliness that is, "CDNBear tried to define what being a Metis is.
He has no right to tell anybody that their heritage and culture is not a heritage and culture and that anybody with Native ancestry and other ancestry is a member of that same culture as Metis that have ancestry that were distinct.
Again, it's not my opinion, it's fact. According to law, legislation, the provincial Metis councils and reality!
that is actually racism and should not be tolerated. He has no right to make those assertions.
That's not racist, they aren't assertions. Those are the facts.
If I came in here and said, "hey I have Dutch, Norse and germanic heritage so therefore I am a Brit, because that's where their heritage comes form, and anybody that has a mix of norse and germanic blood is also a Brit, on the same level as any other brit, regardless of the other brits having ancestry that fought (literally) for that culture and heritage (as did my ancestors for the Metis cause in the red river rebellion) , it would not be tolerated or permitted. but on here, this forum, YOU are allowing a Native to tell a Metis that he has no heritage because any other Native, like himself, can turn around and reproduce with a white person creating what you are.
I never once said the Metis had no heritage.
how is that tolerable?
Because it wasn't said.
ask yourself that.
Ask yourself what? Why am I trying to communicate with the brain dead? I like the fun of it.
It is not enough to say that somebody is a metis becaus ethe word means something and they still have their culture even if some Natives join their ranks, with no ancestry in that culture, and that doesn't effect things?
Not my question to answer. Try talking to your MP.
I agree, your post is, very much so.
Of course it effects things. If you're not distinct, and any Native being one generation away from joing your nation means you are not distinct no matter how you try to spin it, than that is racism.
It's not racism and from what i have seen, all new comers join the culture with glee. Even the Black Metis.
He is degrading my culture.
I did no such thing, you were doing a fine job on your own.
how can this not be clearly visible to you, karrie?
Because it isn't true.
Is it because you personally don't like me because of anther thread? it would certainly appear that way from here.
From here it appears you have difficulty with reality.
I'm not saying what I said was right. It wasn't. I made racist commentary. I shouldn't have. There is no excuse for it.
Wow, I'm amazed you recognize that....
That doesn't mean what he did in degrading my culture is okay.
But think that's reality.
He and everybody that has made comments denying Metis people a right to their own culture and distinction were also being rapist and that INJUSTICE lead to the racist commentary, even though it doesn't excuse it.
No body said anything derogatory about Metis culture. Try showing us where.
It is still wrong that only I was singled out for inappropriate behavior in here when on the whole, I was actually the one being attacked by people diminishing and undermining my heritage and people.
Wow, lose grip on reality often?
