This #MRasheedCartoons image was inspired partly from the following quote by Dahr Jamail, a fourth generation Lebanese-American independent journalist, famous for his 2007 book ‘Beyond the Green Zone.’
"The single biggest thing I learned was from an indigenous elder of Cherokee descent, Stan Rushworth, who reminded me of the difference between a Western settler mindset of 'I have rights' and an indigenous mindset of 'I have obligations.' Instead of thinking that I am born with rights, I choose to think that I am born with obligations to serve past, present, and future generations, and the planet herself." ~ Dahr Jamail, excerpt from Lion’s War interview by Hal Atwood
The quote actually offended me as it came from someone claiming a native American political identity, a group who has not only received free land and reparations from the US government, but withdrew the reparations they were paying to the descendants of Black people whom they had enslaved themselves. But here I find you preaching your fake guru crap that I need to stop fighting for my God0-given rights as a human, to instead take on the slave mentality during a time when I still find myself subjugated for continued exploitation & plunder by my traditional foe and his loyal “POC/BIPOC” support class. The WORST part of this idiocy is watching my own gullible people uncritically eat it up like it’s real “wisdom.”
