OH the internet

ME:

Because I hate everything, here's more about the use of aboriginal culture in the Games.

SOME FUCKHEAD:

There is no such thing as "indigenous" or "aboriginal" anymore. There are "groups not yet fully integrated into the larger society" and "groups who found their place in larger society through being indigenously aboriginal and profiting from that in many forms". Live with it.

ME:

Uh huh.  Thanks, font of all knowledge!

Do you think people of colour are just lazy, too?  Slavery was ages ago!

Or is it maybe slightly more complex than "stop being lazy and whining about the white people"?  Is it perhaps kinda difficult to get out of the reservations your family grew up in?  Kinda difficult to get out of all the racism, you dirty drunken Indian?  Kinda hard to just get over being abused in residential schools?

No no, clearly you have Canada's problems all figured out, random Latvian on the internet.

You go and let the aboriginal population know that they can't call themselves their own names.  Again.  Lemme know how that works out.
