For the past couple weeks, I’ve been reading the college text book: Essentials of Sociology. If you’re going to be president, understanding the “essentials” of sociological constructs would seem important, huh. Just sayin’. Anyway, this morning I was reading a chapter about “Inequalities of Race and Ethnicity.” It was noted, among a lot of things, that: “When state machinery is harnessed to hatred, as it was by the Nazis — who exploited the schools, police, courts, mass media, and almost all aspects of the government — prejudice becomes practically irresistible.” Ok… U.S. “state machinery,” if you will, was harnessed to hatred of the Native Americans at the beginning of this country, as an example. This “prejudice” led to one of the biggest genocides in the history of mankind (20 million people killed), and the wholesale taking of land (every treaty with the Native Americans was broken). And none of this has been made right on any type of significant level. Our administration would propose it be made right, in spades! See our position paper on Native American issues.
