Native American reservations were for in tact native tribes who decided against assimilating to the White American culture

The American constitution declared natives could and should be aided in assimilating to white society as racial equals if they so chose

Hmm, perhaps we should reverse that and have the white folks mandatorily assimilate into the cultures which were already in place when they came. "Oh no, that's different", I hear you say. Really? Why?

Watch a western some day. The white girl who grew up with Indians has to be "freed" and brought back to civilization. The Indian girl who grew up among whites is "fortunate". Bullshit even liberals tend to believe without thinking about it.

Which part of the Constitution was that in? (I swear, most Americans don't even know what the Constitution *is*, let alone what's in it).

Yeah, taking kids from the tribe, outlawing their native language in boarding schools, forcing conversion to Christianity...that's "helping" assimilation, if they so choose...

The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City.

Up to 2016, it was the Trump Taj Mahal: until last month, when it was assimilated by the Seminole Nation from the bankrupt white society that is your 'Emprah'.

I'm sure they would vote for the basis of your shite... er, I mean white 'society' in 2020: if they so chose.

But to have whites adapt to those that were already there is a bad idea compared to the fucking treatment Native Americans got.

Where in the Constitution is that?

Holy hell, it's a post from an alternate timeline!
...That's the only way any of that makes sense, anyway. Otherwise it's just flagrant ignorance of literally everything related to US history.


EDIT: that entire subreddit is just a Hitler Youth clusterfuck on bath salts. Ugh, why did I click the link?

The constitution said a lot of things it never enforced or even encouraged in much the country, like the Magna Carta centuries before. It's not by any means fully realized today. But it was and is a good plan, something to strive toward,and it's influence cannot be dismissed.

This pretence that everyone's been getting a fair deal since 1776-1800 is just RW propaganda.

I bet these chucklefucks are screaming about brown people immigration and white genocide. It's A-OK when whites did it to the Native Americans, but when they think the same thing might happen to them it's a disaster.
