Our Greatest Enemy--Sell Outs For Greed--Redskin Magazine--Spirit Hawk
Do they print articles pointing our youth to help from drug addiction, alcoholism, gang life and suicide the exploitation of our women?
Of course not. Not much money in that!
They sell way more magazines by printing trash that encourages these very things. The very name is a slap in our faces!
They claim this rag is Native owned so it's all ok? No folks, I think not. It is SELL OUT owned!
Their sole purpose is to make money at our expense, but more shameful, more treacherous, more despicable than words can describe....They do so at the expense of our youth.
"We at RSM support our women whom fight for rights while hanging a poster of a hot Indian man on their wall..."
Not only are you racist Jody against your own people, but in my opinion, add sexism in there as well. Hundreds of First Nations women have been murdered and no one cares, law enforcement has done little to nothing to find out what happened to these women, who is responsible for the killings. Don't you read the news? How dare you compare your skin magazine to the efforts of hundreds of native people who put their lives on the line fighting for life--equality, justice and the true rights of all First Nations and American Indians.
I've yet to see or hear an example of Redskin magazine doing any educating against racism (whether "blinding" or otherwise). As far as I can tell, the only "educating" the magazine is doing is telling people it's okay to call Indians "redskins." In other words, to stereotype them as a separate race of savages known for their blood-colored skin and bloody behavior.
I'll say it again to any Indians who own or work for Redskin: If the turncoat fits, wear it.
Suppose the magazine does make money. Are the owners planning to give some of it back to Native people? Or are they in it solely for themselves?
True, some Indians may be able to rationalize their participation in Redskin. Perhaps they genuinely feel "redskin" isn't a slur and they'll say it to anyone, including their elders. Or they genuinely think they'll help more people than they'll hurt by appearing in the magazine. For instance, they're promoting a fundraiser for the victims of racial profiling (such as labeling Indians "redskins").
But everyone else has little or no excuse for being part of Redskin. That includes everyone who admits "redskin" is a slur and would never think of saying it to their friends or family.
