Bury my Heart... on Bullshit Mountain

"There is no list of over 500 murdered and missing white women killed by indigenous men, there is however a list of over 500 murdered and missing indigenous women, most of those women were killed by white men."

"I am inviting a lot of the families of murdered and missing women to be standing on the road with pictures of them," Roseau River Anishnabe First Nation Chief Terry Nelson said by phone Wednesday.
Uh, Terry... I think I'm gonna want to have a look at that list. I mean, if you've actually got the names of 500 "white" murderers... maybe you oughta be turning them over to the police.

And, while you're at it... how about some pictures of all the dead children as well...
"The rate of deaths from injuries is 3 to 4 times higher for Aboriginal children than for other children in Canada."

You gonna try blame that one on the evil white man too?

And hey... not to be too much of a pain in the ass... you might wanna say something about the absolutely unacceptable rates of substance abuse, domestic violence and homicide... right there in the aboriginal communities.
"The average death rate on reserves for the decade ending in 2002 was more than seven times the national average."
You think that might just have something to do with some of those murdered and missing women?

Finally, I've gotta say, I don't understand why this hysterical ranter is some kind of media spokes-native...
"There are only two ways of dealing with the white man.

One, either you pick up a gun, or you stand between the white man and his money," Terry Nelson of the Roseau River First Nation told CTV Newsnet's Mike Duffy Live on Tuesday.
Good grief... this is the aboriginal community's "best & brightest"?

No wonder they're so messed up.
