March Rant from Jonny

Translated.png Traducere de [1].

"Fair Game"

My partner Amanda recently attended an Indigenous Forum at the Empress Hotel in downtown Victoria. On her way inside, two separate people, both total strangers to Amanda and likely to each other as well, one a young woman in what looked to be her early twenties, the other a forty-something man, showed racial hostility.

With separate actions (one pretended to be about to spit on her, the other made a western movie style "Indian call") these two white people spontaneously and separately transmitted some hate to Amanda, who is visibly and rather unequivocally Native-looking.

Maybe they were drunk and silly, and didn't mean it in a bad way. At 9AM on a weekday, not likely. Although they probably didn't know it, these two were acting out the hatred upon which the governing system of Canada was founded. Transmitted via culture to each new generation, hatred of Native people is still there to find in random places every day.

Amanda's morning reminded her that despite official pretenses at including a few Native Canadians in the Olympics held nearby, despite last year's official apology for endemic residential school atrocities including the widely acknowledged 50% death rate, to be visibly Native in Canada still marks one as "fair game."

February Rant from Jonny

Frati si surori, oameni bogati vreau doar un singur lucru: totul! Lumea are nevoie de imputernicirea comunitati mai mult decat orsicand, noi trebuie sa fiim tari sa tinem de si extindem/imbunatatim institutile publice si bunastarea noastra.
Eu sint un sofer de taxi, si aceasta meserie, cu dragostea mea pentru conversatie, mi-a permis sa intilnesc niste oameni uimitor in taxi. Am discutat invazia de GRANADA in 1983 cu un grenadian care a supravietuit si cu un agent englez guvernamental care a participat.
Lucrind in un taxi ma ofera mare oportunitate pentru interactioneaza cu oameni intr-un fel natural si relaxat pentru a invata povestile lor. Ce sociologii numesc "interviu profund si calitative" eu experimentez foarte des pe calatorii lungi spre aeroport.
"Ce accent interesant" descopera origini nationale, si lucreaza mult mai bine decat va "De unde sunteti?" A doua intrebare incepe alarma, pentru ca poate fi interpretata ca o provocare sau atac ca si celor rasists.
Va doresc la toti o Februarie fericita!
