A sincere thank you to government leaders

Thank you, Government Leaders, for your refusal to treat Indigenous Women with respect and dignity. Don’t listen, don’t act and turn the other way. You make it possible for me to know I am not wrong when I beat the Indian Woman when I am frustrated. To put her down and call her names when

Thank you, Government Leaders, for your refusal to treat Indigenous Women with respect and dignity. Don’t listen, don’t act and turn the other way. You make it possible for me to know I am not wrong when I beat the Indian Woman when I am frustrated. To put her down and call her names when I’ve had a bad day. To slap her face over and over until her sobs enrage me. Until I use my fists, my boots, my bat and my gun. To go into a blind rage until in the end, there is nothing but blood and silence. May I say, you tackled that issue of a National Inquiry quite brilliantly.

Thank you, Government Leaders, for your refusal to treat Indigenous Women with respect and dignity. You make it possible for me to assume all Indian women are dirty brown whores, squaws for the taking. They are lucky someone like me would even touch them. I stand united with you, Government Leaders, in our privilege and superiority. I affirm our privilege against those who have no voice, no rights and no respect.

Thank you, Government Leaders, for your refusal to treat Indigenous Women with respect and dignity. You have refused to pay Indians equally for the work they do. They, who pay no taxes! They, who live off Canadians! They are lazy anyway and their work could not possibly compare to the work of Our People. How dare they ask for equal pay! They can never be equal to us! You possess great foresight to have fostered such a practise all these years.

Thank you, Government Leaders, for your refusal to treat Indigenous Women with respect and dignity. You have refused to pay for equal education of their brown offspring. Canada saves $2,000 per year, per Indian child this way. Their children cannot ever be smarter than Ours. Their children cannot possibly receive the same quality of education as Our Children. Who do they think they are? Afterall, their children are corrupt and angrier than ours. They are dangerous! When they whine about this discrepancy, tell them you do put money into the prison system. Isn’t this where their children will end up anyway? Save the money for the education for Our People.

Thank you, Government Leaders, for your refusal to treat Indigenous Women with respect and dignity. You give them just enough power to let them think they are equal. Let them fight amongst each other because we all know they will. Your strategy of giving them “just enough,” but never enough to totally be self sufficient, is brilliant. If they try to claim we are not a fair country, we can just cite all the things we have done for them.

Thank you, Government Leaders, for your refusal to treat Indigenous Women with respect and dignity. You foster Indians living in poverty on Reserves. What a great strategic plan – starve them on-reserve, and now starve them off-reserve! You keep their Reservation Women’s Shelters nicely underfunded so they are unable to adequately provide counselling, education and proper services to their Indian Women. They run to the cities, where they are vulnerable, alone and hungry. This gives people like me a fighting chance. I give them booze and drugs so society will look the other way. Heck, even the Police turn the other way. Easy prey! Brown sex toys for all to use. To fulfill our fantasies, do whatever we want, then get tossed away as garbage in the trash. By the way, this is very good money! Afterall, I do have a wife and children of my own to support.

Thank you, Government Leaders, for your refusal to treat Indigenous Women with respect and dignity. You certainly know your Indians. You know they kick up a fuss for awhile, and in the end, they go away angry, but so what? They don’t know their rights because they never had any. The establishment of the Indian Act ensured this in 1876. They go and pick up a bottle, numb out on drugs or hang by a noose. Ok, let’s just let them dance and sing! This seems to make them feel good and you know what, as a Canadian citizen I don’t mind. Let’s let them have that! After all, I am a generous man!

Thank you, Government Leaders, for your refusal to treat Indigenous Women with respect and dignity. You have taken their land, displaced their men and broken every promise possible. And so what, the government of Canada agreed to undertake fidicial responsibility of Indian People. I support your concepts: “Nope, we never said that!” “Nope that’s not what that means!” And you can always fall back on the ole, “Nope, we have no more money!” They will eventually go away.

Thank you, Government Leaders, for your refusal to treat Indigenous Women with respect and dignity. You sure know how to manage the “Indian Problem” in Canada. We will bear this problem just like the United States had to bear their “Black Problem.” But we have done it so much better. And you can rest assured, Indians will never rise to the status of Black People in the States. You won’t see Indians on TV, on commercials, winning awards or in movies like you see Black People doing in the States. We know how to keep our Indians down. There will never be equal status on this side of the Border. Our Indians today have the rights of Blacks in the 1960’s. We know how to keep them in a cage we call Reservations. Giving them only enough money, only enough opportunity to survive. They will never thrieve in this Country. And you can bet there will certainly never be an Indian Prime Minister in Canada. May the United States learn from us in this regard. We should write and share an Indian Best Pratice Guideline. But then again, this has already been written: The Indian Act.

Thank you, Government Leaders, for your refusal to treat Indigenous Women with respect and dignity. You are my role models. You give me guidance and direction. I look to you to measure my values, ethics and behavior. We are completely in syncronization with each other. You are doing a fine job and I look forward to my children becoming fine Canadian Citizens, learning from watching our Governance and our Leaders.
