"In one often repeated story, a Native American girl in Oklahoma raises her hand when the teacher asks, “Who here can speak a foreign language?” She replies: “I can. English,” incurring the teacher’s disapproval. Yet for her—indeed, for all Native Americans—English is a foreign language. The power of their native tongues has lingered all over the land, as shown in rivers such as the Chattahoochee, Monongahela, and Susquehanna. Rarely do newcomers rename rivers; they merely mangle the old pronunciation. For instance, in Ojibwe misi-ziibi means “Great River.”"
"Good afternoon. I am Mavutaseuv, Indian Girl with a Different Face. I am known as Diane Millich, and I am a citizen of the Southern Ute Indian tribe located in Ignacio, Colorado. When I was 26 years old, I dated a non-Indian, a white man. After six months, we were married. My non-Indian husband moved into my house on the reservation. To my shock, just days after our marriage, he assaulted me. After a year of abuse and more than a hundred incidences of being slapped, kicked, punched, and living in horrific terror, I left for good. During that year of marriage, I called the police many times. I called our Southern Ute tribal police department, but the law prevented them from arresting and prosecuting my husband because he was non-Indian. The county sheriff could not help me because I am a Native woman and the beatings occurred on tribal reservation land. After one beating, my ex-husband called the tribal police and the sheriff’s department himself just to show me that no one could stop him. All the times that I called the police and nothing was done only made my ex-husband believe he was above the law and untouchable. My ex-husband told me, ‘You promised us until death do us part, so death it shall be.’ Finally he arrived at my office armed with a gun. I am alive today only because my coworker pushed me out of harm’s way and took the bullet in his shoulder. For this crime he was finally arrested. But because he had never been arrested for any of the abuse against me, he was treated as a first-time offender. The state prosecutor and him reached a plea agreement of ‘aggravated driving under revocation’. If the bill being signed today were law when I was married, it would have allowed my tribe to arrest and prosecute my abuser. When this bill is signed, The Violence Against Women Act will finally reach Native American women like me."

"When I’m a psychiatrist you better believe I’m going to sedate the fuck out of foster kids. No one cares about them, why should I? It’s less work and an easy pay check."

But srsly, here’s why this particular kind of institutionalized child abuse is ethnocidal…
"They were giving me drugs, Prozac and two other ones I didn’t know, which scared me because I didn’t even know what I was taking, and they just basically said, ‘Take this.’ If I didn’t take it they would physically restrain me and throw me in my room and not let me out until I wanted to take it.”

There’s also a grim history of forced drug testing on foster children, and highly toxic drugs at that.
"I do not agree that the dog in a manger has the final right to the manger even though he may have lain there for a very long time. I do not admit that right. I do not admit that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher-grade race, a more worldly wise race, has come in and taken their place."
don’t forget, he was a horrible racist and blood-thirsty war criminal directly responsible for the death of millions of people.
reminder again that chruchill is a piece of shit who was right about literally nothing and the fact that he hated communists only makes him more of an asshole.
He was right about Hitler being bad… but he thought Hitler was bad because he wanted to do exactly what is described in this quote to other European nation-states.
