I just want to wish everyone a Happy White Man’s #IndependenceDay! ? Not trying to offend anyone; I’m just trying to keep things a little in perspective by going against the grain! The 13 colonies gained their freedom from England but at the future expense of the First Nations that had everything to lose, yet they survived genocide and continue to rebound while Hollywood and pop culture continue to exploit and caricaturize these current living Indigenous peoples!!! Yes, I’m grateful for my freedom and do feel patriotic, even festive, but it’s extra important to stay objective and keep things in perspective on days like the 4th! So have fun, eat lots of watermelon, and enjoy the fireworks but #decolonizeyourmind! ~ via Instagram: ift.tt/29qqIA2
