THE DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE VERSUS THE COMPLEXION OF THE PROTECTION


Didn't want that part to get lost in all the Standing Rock Tribe broken treaty discussions. 

MS. ROBINSON'S NEIGHBORHOOD EPISODE 1:  


  • Can you say, "The complexion of instant protection is white" boys and girls. 



Say these two things over and over as you watch the graphic below






(Pssst! The DAPL pipeline moved away from the Bismark, ND water supply without a fight or even a letter. As of the 2000 census, Bismark was 94% white and 3.39% Native American.)




"For several months, the local Native American community and other protesters have been arguing that the pipeline could threaten the reservation's water supply. But this is actually an updated routing — after the original routing was rejected for similar reasons. The original pipeline was to be routed just north of Bismarck, North Dakota, according to Karen Van Fossan, minister of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Bismarck, North Dakota.

“I actually read about the original pathway, or an original pathway of the pipeline, in our local newspaper,” she says. “It’s our understanding, and I’ve talked to everybody who I know who would have known about it in advance, that we never even in Bismarck had to make an objection. The pathway was moved away from our drinking supply without our even needing to go to a meeting or write a letter.”

It's hard to believe somebody white wrote the song, "I fought the law and the law won" isn't it?  Doesn't that seem like... like... like old science fiction? I'll bet the white folks in Bismark probably never even knew THEIR water supply was in danger in the first place.

The white folks in Bismark are probably looking at the DAPL Protesters thinking "Damn rabble rowsers" right now.  White folks thing the greedy 1% among them is never gonna come for them. But that's always a lie. The Mean Tangerine Class always comes for people of color first....But we never have enough. Those greedy sons of b*tches always want MORE.

When Mean Tangerine says the "economy is stagnant" he means the 1% made close to the same amount of money they made last year. It's not enough to make "profit." They need "more profit" every single year. They call that greed for "more profit" by this positive sounding word like "growth."

Bismark and other white communities just like it may be sitting their blissfully ignorant for now, but one of the first things Mean Tangerine will probably do is gut environmental legislation so they won't be laughing and/or ignorant but for another two decades or so.

What happened to Flint and what is happening to Standing Rock Tribe is going to visit us all eventually. Instead of de-fang-ing the 1% we let the patriarchal white supremacists put one of the most rabid among them in charge -- without nearly enough of a damn fight.
