So here's a card I never thought I'd be making, here's a look into why there's racism toward First Nations at least in Alberta.
So recently my mother started combining for a friend, a nice guy, not an ass or a racist. This fellows father is in the same boat though we've seen less of him. So this morning when my mother was texting to see when she what time she was to be out there and what field, she is told that her bosses dad caught a native fellow red handed trying to steal from his shop. So instead of dealing with it himself, he took the proper channels and phones the police so they could arrest him. So at the end of it all, after getting caught red handed, the just let him go. So now let's go back, last winter a white dude was also caught stealing, got shot or shot at. He got charged. End of story. So now with this bullshit being the story you hear over and over and over, what is the pissed off farmers motive for taking the proper channels? This is Albert that this is happening which for those of you who don't know is 100% the Texas of Canada. In the rural areas everyone and their dog has a rifle. We're even borrowing a .303 british for a bear that's been hanging about our yard. So if a farmer can't protect his or her shit by simply catching the bugger in the act and phoning the cops what is the motivator for these older crotchety farmer to not just shoot the fucker and dump him elsewhere. Nobody has a second thought if they hear a gun out here, pests happen (skunks, coyotes, the occasional bear) so this crap happening makes me wonder how many of the First Nations that go missing are exactly that situation. Pissed off the wrong farmer that's had enough of their shit.
Now that all said, it's not as if everyone just assumes that every native is out to steal their crap. The school I went to had a First Nations fellow as the janitor/maintenance guy, I'm not sure I ever heard a bad word about him. We was polite, damn good at his job (the maintenance part in particular), and was good at seemingly every sport known to man. Even after he left for greener pastures and a few other dudes replaced him people still said that he was better. So it's not as if people are hating First Nations just to hate them. They repeatedly earn this hate by pulling this bullshit and always getting away with it, on top of getting free money because their predecessors where wronged, of which nobody denies, but how bloody long can this be milked?
