These are not sweet sugar-coated things.

[1] The KKK is who funded that guy named G. Borglum to work on that atrocity of what settlers call "Mount Rushmore".

[2] Sand Creek Massacre: 500 Arapaho and Cheyenne men, women, children, and babies brutally killed (some were mutilated) by crazed settlers looking for more ways to make themselves and the kyriarchy (KKK rich) by westward expansion.

[3] Abraham Lincoln unleashed "some of the most brutal acts of genocide and destruction against indigenous peoples" because he was caught between the proverbial (or maybe not so much proverbial) rock and a hard place. The only way to gain favor among enslaved black settlers was to "value" them more than indigenous peoples... and this 3/5ths of a citizen is why he wanted his legacy to be civil rights. The real truth is much darker.

There's nothing here to be debated. If you LISTEN to the words of survivors, you can learn some important things ...

When things get hard, if/when you become "desperate", don't be like G Borglum or hold to the delusion that money will be your ticket out of the tough spots.

Realize that the 20 or 30-something "prepper" who uses reddit religiously to antagonize or incite divisiveness among PoC ... that is the modern KKK doing exactly what LIncoln did. They're very active on Facistbook and Twitter too. Nothing scares these guys more than the idea of calling them on their bullshit.

Force your Senators and Reps to their delusions. Make them listen to you, and when they won't, bring in the mental health professionals.

It is time to stop ecological and economic genocide. Tortoise Mountain and Turtle Island natives are the original Ecosteaders. Long before European and other settlers with delusions about government-subsidized development in "blocks" of colonizer cash infrastructure, Native Land Before Invasion was organic. And there never were opportunities or roles for any caucasian dudes as a "Chief" of anything or as any Executive Officer. The platform responsible for the most modern-day genocide on indigenous people is Zuckerberg's fascist Inc.
