  1. What I find perplexing is that many indigenous people have a serious hate on for white society, yet they kill each other off at such an alarming rate. Seems that many of them even hate themselves.

    You’d be alarmed if you knew how many FN people in Dumpster Bay die at a young age from drug/alcohol abuse and violence. It’s far above the national average.

    However, rather than acknowledging that alcohol and drug abuse is responsible for the vast preponderance of FN deaths, many seem to want to create a “white serial killer” villain for a scape goat and leaders like Alvin Fiddler do little to address the actual root cause.
