TRIGGER WARNING; RANT AHEAD
Okay, I am fucking sorry that I was born 100% white. I’m sorry that I’m not PRIVILEGED enough to be born a Native American so that I can receive financial help to FURTHER MY EDUCATION. I’m sorry you damned racist bastards are so fucking stuck in the past that you forget the current generations have NOTHING to do with what was done to Native peoples HUNDREDS. OF. YEARS. AGO.
Do you KNOW why I struggle with hatred against Natives? ONE. REASON. ONLY. THE GOVERNMENT IS RACIST AND GIVES THINGS TO A CERTAIN RACE THAT, OH LOOK, I WASN’T BORN INTO. That is the only reason. You tell me to stop hating? Fuck you. Fuck you all to hell. Fuck you. Fuck you. FUCK YOU.
What happened has NOTHING to do with me. WHY AM I SUFFERING BECAUSE OF SOME STUPID MISTAKES MADE BY PEOPLE FROM HUNDREDS OF YEARS AGO? DROP IT ALREADY. DROP IT AND I’LL DROP MY DAMNED HATE. I HATE THE TREATIES. I HATE NATIVES. I HATE THAT THEY ARE SPECIAL AND YOU HAND THEM EVERYTHING.
“Get good enough marks and you can have scholarships!”
Well thanks a fucking lot. I guess having a lowest mark of 94% in my LAST semester of high school wasn’t good enough. I guess my 99% in history wasn’t good enough.
Oh yeah, and to the friend that can’t even bother to fucking try and talk me through this and instead assumes I’m “taking my frustration out on Native people.” Fuck you too. I don’t even have a CHANCE to apply for SHIT from the government. They don’t have scholarships for students that are white anymore. There are programs ONLY for natives. Don’t tell me I don’t know anything. I’ve seen enough to know you guys are HANDED STUFF. MAYBE I DON’T FUCKING KNOW EVERYTHING, BUT I KNOW ENOUGH. Know what the government will give me? MAYBE two hundred bucks a month. IF I get a student loan. IF I am low income. IF IF IF. AND THAT IS ABSOLUTELY IT.
Now I’m sobbing. If there are people that can’t fucking take my rants, forget about being my friend. I’m upset. I’m tired of working hard not to be rewarded. What the hell is the point of working so much if it won’t make a fucking difference?
…I don’t even have words for what I’m feeling right now.
No worries, I’ve got this.
The reason you “struggle with hatred against natives” is because you have an irrational dislike (probably passed through your family) for a different group of people. The reason you rationalise it as something you feel because they get more help or rights than you is two-fold:
- You’re smart enough and educated enough to know that you’re in the wrong on this, so you’ve reached for something that will allow you to continue being a bigoted jerk anyway.
- Your friends are smart enough and educated enough to know that you’re in the wrong on this, so you’ve reached for something that will allow you to con… oh, wait, this is actually the exact same reason.
Speaking as a straight cis white man from, I can absolutely guarantee you that you’re wrong about getting financial aid. Without financial aid from my government and my college, I wouldn’t have gone to college. If you want to go to college, and you got the grades you say you did, you can go to college. Trust me on this one.
But let’s deal with the substance of your post, because… well, because it makes me furious. You feel like you’re being hosed, and I get that; I really do. It’s terrible that your people weren’t killed in probably the most massive genocide the world has ever seen. It’s awful that no one committed germ warfare against your ancestors, stole their land, marched them hundreds or thousands of miles, and gave them back a tiny bit of their own land to live on (along with widespread substance addiction). It totally sucks for you that your race isn’t used as a mascot by sports teams or used as a placeholder for “noble savagery” on dozens of TV shows every year.
Oh, and I’m sorry that the American government doesn’t exist purely to make sure that you personally get free money, even though it did make sure that you got a world-class education. Hell, you even knew enough to use the word “privilege” as a barb. I’m impressed. But I’m not sympathetic. Look around you. You have everything you need to further your education already.
TL;DR version: The world doesn’t owe you a goddamned thing. Go work for it, and stop complaining that people who’ve been fucked over for generations have it worse than you.
This guy is a textbook example of an entitletard.
