I think you need to read this , Val...
And understand those same people have not only discriminated
against blacks , but Native Americans in Portland , long before the
reported 1800's , when they were first recorded...
You may know of ***modern*** groups , but you
apparently do not know Oregon's history...
Best to you...check out the article
Ok listen, nowhere did I claim to be in support of these groups.
Or any groups that claim white purity
I have lived in Portland, Albany, and Beaverton a total of 5 years
I know the ins and outs of the Three Sisters Area and have friends in Eugene and Medford
My Russian aquaintences are white collar syndicate they are not skinheads or anything like the others
I know the history of racism in Oregon and of the day the Natives ran them out
I am not ignorant of the goings on in the Pacific Northwest
I shouldn't have said anything if I had known you would have become so defensive I would not have said anything
My beef was with your response to Ahavati's post on the success of the Indigenous in the NorthWest
This thread was created to celebrate all indigenous triumphantly
Which is exactly what her post did
Your rebuttal started with a hearty Yahoo then went on to speak negativity into the story followed by a hopeful high five
I would rather not speak life into the negativity
Words are powerful to give racism any mention within the positivity is breathing life into their thoughts
I would like to start over and will be removing my posts after you read this
I want this thread to be specific
