"Deconstructing Patriarchy" is probably about 60 percent dismantling and 40 percent obliteration of broken systems.

Sometimes really broken things can't be dismantled; they need swept off the maps.

Enjoyed this perspective on IGG:

"The difficulty in promoting an Indigenous feminist message is the ... colonial nation-state under which Indigenous women are greatly marginalized. White populist feminism makes this battle even more difficult, and fails to aid the group of women that have suffered the most from their sustained privilege."

Important to point out how many landlords, "property management companies", realty companies and brokerages (the summation of which is the NAR) are run by boomer women (or men subscribed to boomer values) which always always always undervalue the slave laborers. They hate many things, especially talk and decolonization.

Labor will always be more valuable than capital. Every "realty" system the settler colonial states try to invent fails because it doesn't understand this simple truth. Deny the landlords both your labor and your capital, and they will fail. Don't be fooled by their appeals.

"The discussion of intersectionality seems only to be addressed when it is most convenient, or when it does not interfere with the white woman’s agenda; this is inherently harmful to the progression of Indigenous women’s rights and equality, as “any feminism that does not address land rights, sovereignty, and the state’s systematic erasure of the cultural practices of native peoples, or that defines native women’s participation in these struggles as non-feminist, is limited in vision and exclusionary in practice” (Suzack et al., 2010)."

"One of the greatest foes of intersectionality is the feminism that is most often promoted in mass media and read about in history books–white, Western feminism. The first two of the Three Waves of Feminism, while all striving to achieve equality in some form, have been centered around the voices of white women and failed to acknowledge the inherently exclusive and discriminatory nature of their movements."

Watch Russell Means explain that "where white men fear to tread" is actually quite large:

(Skip to ~7 mins in for some encouraging words regarding the wars of oppression)

The tragedy is that because the white man could never face his past, THAT is why he has no future.

Specifics matter. The toppling of the statue of Columbus:

"On Wednesday afternoon, a 10-foot tall bronze Christopher Columbus statue was taken down on the east side of the Minnesota State Capitol in St. Paul, Minnesota by members of the American Indian Movement (AIM).

It was the second Columbus statue taken down in as many days. On Tuesday night, a Columbus statue was torn down and thrown in a lake in Richmond, Virginia.

Columbus is no hero to American Indians and considered part of a false narrative of written American history."

A great question is: why would a government turn violent against its people?

"Leaders possess their power only because their constituents have empowered them to direct the group’s collective action since all individual power emerges from collective support. When people begin to peaceably withdraw their support and refuse to obey, a government may turn to violence, but its control lasts only as long as the army or police choose to obey as well."

Lotta grotesque men from history to demote. Maybe tag for all of these tyrants being: .

Edward Cornwallis' statue was torn down in 2018. Cornwallis, if you don't know (or only get your history from Wikipedia) was sadistic European who sought to trade colonist cash ($colonistcash) for proof of murder of people of the Mi'qmak[1]. His descendants were so ashamed, they tried to remake him as a hero. Lotta good people were never told the ugly truth about guys like him. His lease expired long time ago...

Edward Cornwallis and Edward Colston (the slave trader whose hideousness was toppled in Bristol) are the same kind of bad guy.

White folk need to wake up to the "false narrative of written American history" being brainwashed into schoolkids. Y The confederate flag does not belong anywhere on native soil. Governments "of the people, by the people, and for the people" don't have to put up with anything they don't want in their community!

Twenty seven US cities[2] and Prague and Belgium[3] have the living people taking charge.

Remap for the indigenoUS, not RCMP or ICE

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 development in "blocks" of colonizer cash infrastructure, Native Land Before Invasion was organic. And there never were opportunities or roles for any white dudes as a "Chief" Executive Officer. Get out of here and fix the problems plaguing Europe before trying to kill the indigenoUS Earth.
