imagine looking at the West and going "what makes this different than other cultures? a love of strangers!"

how fucking blind do you have to be.

@emsenn I remember when I first read ancient greek myths and noticed they were all super careful about how they treated strangers because strangers were under the protection of Zeus, and how it felt very foreign to me.

@technomancy Right? Like this homie is right-enough saying "Western folk are weird and think different" but holy fuck has he never talked to someone beside white men?

@emsenn @technomancy Probably not. Depending on where they were brought up, it's very possible.

Tortoise Mountain Natives Do Not Like English Ivy

It is time to stop Ecological and economic genocide upon people of color. Tortoise Mountain and Turtle Island natives are the original Ecosteaders. Long before European and other settlers with delusions about government-subsidized Farmworld and Cafeworld development in "blocks" of colonialist infrastructure, Native Land Before Invasion was organic. And there never were opportunities or roles for a white male "Chief" Executive Officer. Fix the problems plaguing Europe before testing your ideas here.
