Where do we gain our moral conscious? Where do we acquire our moral guide? I bring these questions up to ask two other questions: Why are so many Native people still absorbed with colonization and decolonization in 2016?

Justice Antonia Scalia was one of the most rabidly anti-Native justices—closely aligned with former Chief Justice William Rehnquist—ever to serve on the High Court. His passing creates a vacancy on the influential court that will have lasting consequences.

The perverse history of governmental-Lakota/Dakota relations took a more sinister turn when the Hiawatha Insane Asylum was built 10 years after Wounded Knee, December 29, 1890. It operated for over 30 years before it was torn down.

As a REAL Native American who went to Scappoose High School in Scappoose, Oregon for four years, I will share my experience as it relates to racism and mascots, though I doubt it will matter now since it didn't matter then.

For some odd and stupid reason many of us continue to be color struck. I really think most of us are ignorant or at the very least forgetful. Black people who look “white” is not a new phenomenon.

I’ve heard it dozens of times: folks justify the appropriation of Native culture and the theft of sacred rites and ceremonies by saying there’s no injury; that it’s essentially harmless, or even beneficial.

I recently purchased a Time magazine special edition, “The Supreme Court: Decisions that Changed America.” Such topics as Privacy, Free Speech, Civil Rights, Abortion, Guns, Same-Sex Marriage, and Obamacare appear on the magazine cover.

We’ve heard your rhetoric, white person, and we’re still not buying the idiots who prevail in popular culture today.
