Expanded Baker Wetlands proving resource of wildlife, nature lovers, Baker recruitment

According to White people of that era they were savages, not men. White people labelled them savages then as they label us Redskins now. White people have the power to ignore, re write, and stereotype histories and peoples. The Boy Scouts do this with the Order of the Arrow now. Ask Roger Boyd.

Expanded Baker Wetlands proving resource of wildlife, nature lovers, Baker recruitment

Numerous Indigenous and environmental groups fought this project because it went over an area where forced assimilation took place in an effort to Kill the Indian and Save the Man. This statement was on a gateway entry to the Carlisle Indian School in Pennsylvania. There is a cultural disconnect between the historically clueless populace of this country and the victims of this ignorance. I lived near wetlands in Jonesville and Moss Bluff Louisiana. Due to this destruction I will never go there again. This promise is three years old now.

KU investigation clears professor who used N-word in class

I left college being higher learning isn't really learning if it's just a White academics view of history which was the case in 1991-1992. The observations that some of you still want this environment is the problem you dance around or refuse to acknowledge.

And you should know that Archie Bunker didn't go to college and if you and your ilk aren't afraid of diversity in college why do you use the Koch Brothers and money to buy silence? Narrow thinking and conservative regression have no place in higher learning.

KU investigation clears professor who used N-word in class

In 1991 and 1992 at Washburn University. My professor taught about the conquistadors and the Peninsulares and Criollios. He didnt care about Inca, Mapuche, Aymara, Mayan, Quicken, Olmec, Nahautl, or Tarahumara history. I walked after that class and have spent two decades educating myself. There is a paternalistic attitude in this circumstance. This professor isn't African American and only one or two of the posters on here are. If these kids are paying for this education with debt who are you all to tell them what is offensive and what isn't? I didn't go to a place of higher learning to hear Archie Bunker echoed. Education should be about learning history that has been ignored or pursuing productive and exposing statements that lead to greater learning. Not reinforcement of past and repeated mistakes.

and Many students come to college hoping for an enlightened environment. They hope to be in a place that academically inspires them. Kids that work hard and escape urban and rural areas of intellectual repression which is Kansas. The last thing someone would want to hear in an academic environment that they're going into debt for is a racial epithet.

5 lessons from Saturday's Kansas caucuses

Until college students realize midterm congressional and senatorial elections are important and the enemies of a civil Kansas are focused on the national Democratic Party won't take Kansas seriously. Bernie was here because he doesn't win big states. It's great that he got the Native vote involved but people in the community have to follow through and watch congressional races because an uninvolved obstructionist congress is the biggest issue. Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders are good leaders but they by themselves can't accomplish everything without a productive congress or senate. Please vote on monsters and make Kansas relevant for the Democratic Party.
