In a blog-based exchange, writer Sheena Wassegijig seeks the support of Yeagley the Indian apple and Yeagley seems to provide it. As a bonus, we get Yeagley's first known mention of me.
Supremecy, Racism, Sexism...who gives a fuck? its old news! its been done...lets move on people...RED, WHITE, BLACK, YELLOW...and even PURPLE...(Yes, I do laugh and mock everything, because it doesnt effect me directly unless I give a damn- even though people have been fighting for it for so long...its been too long, so I no longer give a shit...I just LIVE MY LIFE)
So thank you for mentioning me in your blog and recognizing the message I was getting across to Rob Shmidt.
So, look for something under the forums. I'd love it if you joined us. I've been lied about more than I can assess. But, again, great moves forward always call up great resistance. Rob Schmidt is not exactly dishonest, just biased--with all the bias of Lefty whites who want to tell Indians how to think and feel--to suit white liberal views, etc.
Thanks again for chiming in.
It goes without saying that Yeagley's opinion of me is asinine. As one example, I'm not the one who determined that Indian mascots are stereotypical. Indians are. They've been fighting this battle since I was in grade school, if not before.
Meanwhile, Wassegijig claims she's just living her life and doesn't care what I think. Is that why she contacted Yeagley to get his support? And why she's written a pseudo-defense of her attitude to Yeagley and several pseudo-defenses to me? These don't seem like the actions of someone who doesn't care.
Are Wassegijig and Yeagley two peas in a pod? Who both think racism and stereotyping don't exist and efforts to fight them are unnecessary? Who proudly embrace stereotypes such as "redskin" and "savage"? You be the judge.
