Could someone tell me how they died? I have no idea

I don’t know what the source of the above image is, but the Canadian residential school children were often beaten to death, raped, starved, or refused treatment for illness, so probably something along those lines. Edit: [some reading](https://alaska-native-news.com/secretary-haaland-announces-federal-indian-boarding-school-initiative/56439/) for anyone interested.

The Canadian Government was a terrible fucking institution, still is tbh. The difference is, we learn about residential schools in school from grades 5-6 all the way to 12. The education is very honest, minimal whitewashing and dogma attached to it, and the curriculum tells it like it is-attempted cultural genocide. We learn about the rapes, murders, and beatings. Despite this, theres plenty of people that think First Nations communities don’t deserve drinking water, or reparations in any form.

i just have a very distinct memory of sitting in 4th grade social class, reading about the extinction of the beothuk. they do not sugar coat it. content warning: the massacre, the encroachment, the mutilation, the starvation, the introduction of disease- none of it. my nine year old self was horrified. and yet- i am *so* grateful that they didn’t. that would be like glossing over the armenian genocide, or fvcking holodomor as blips in history; when they clearly weren’t. all for the sake of preserving our consciences. it was genocide. i appreciate the honesty, despite the continuing abuse.

What is CRT though? I can’t seem to find any good explanations. Anyone got any links?

“People in the past suffered so it isn’t fair if you don’t suffer” Seems to be the logic here We should learn about it because our nations actual history is important to learn about. Don’t be ashamed or hate yourself, just look at the history and realize that every human has the ability to carry evil

I think the point is that these kids literally died, all were asking of your children is to learn that was wrong

I'm not saying kids nor adults should ever negatively put themselves down for the atrocities of the ruling class of the United States and the imperialism caused by their greed and exploitation of the world. But don't you think we should at the very least humble ourselves a little bit because of the centuries of bloodshed, genocide, and gross exploitation of not only our own people but also the world's most marginalized people? Don't you think it should be okay for us to step back and say "hey wait a minute, maybe the United States isn't the best country the world. Maybe the body count we have caused from funding right wing death squads, knowingly poisoning water supplies, committing genocide of entire communities for natural resources and political gain, rigging or influencing the rigging of elections in other countries, letting our most vulnerable communities wallow away in poverty and making them suffer under the same system that contiously exploits them shouldn't be the characteristics of any 'great country' ?" The United States is legitimately one of the most evil empires to ever exist and it's okay to acknowledge that. I don't have to have a bad day or have some sort of undying guilt that keeps me up at night. But I do recognize this country is by any definition, evil. And shouldn't we at the very least advocate for a more peaceful, prosperous nation that instead of seeing the world as an opportunity to exploit and steal resources from, we see it as an opportunity to lift others out of poverty and give them the tools to become self sufficient while respecting their communities' autonomy. When we eliminate exploitation anywhere, workers everywhere benefit. That should be the goal of the United States and its great power, not trying to consolidate power any chance it can get and enforce authoritarian measures -- foreign or domestic.

Nobody is being asked to suffer because these children suffered. Nobody is being asked to feel shame for their race, or for the actions of their ancestors. We literally share the same position as you do: that history is important to learn about, especially history that demonstrates the capacity for humans to commit atrocities. People against CRT, whatever it means, only want to censor the evil history of the US. People against those lawmakers want that history to remain uncensored. That’s it.

So what does his bloodline have to do with this? Did he personally allow it? I don't think he chose to be Turkish

Hhoxz

Yes. And if you're about to bring this back to crt, literally nobody who is pro-crt defines crt as that white people are inherently racist or support racism, but that systematic/institutional racism exists in America's legal system.

Hhoxz

Crt isn't being taught or implemented in schools or in the workplace, other than maybe sociology majors about the theory itself. Also, idk what everyday racial minorities you're talking to that don't care about systematic racism.

>Crt styled programs and lectures are. No they aren't. Critical Race Theory is a graduate level study. If you are misinformed about something: you can't possibly form any rational opinions about it.


marxistmatty

Very post modern of you.


marxistmatty

But he learns about opression, so you’ve just made an argument against yourself.


s50cal

There are people with XX chromosomes that are biologically male. Turns out there is more to science than what you learned in 9th grade.


sachsrandy

Can you please name me some of the ones that were killed? You know some of the “many” who “didn’t”. There must be so much legit proof and positive ID’s of bodies and DNA tests done for you to make such a radical claim... no possible way you’ve been fooled by news headline reading is there?


FrenchCobra

Bro there’s straight up unnamed child graves found at the sites of residential schools (which are what this pic come from). To claim the indigenous people weren’t killed is insane. Even those who survived though have horrible trauma and ptsd due to insane abuse and rape. Don’t deny the actual horrors of the past.


sachsrandy

Ok... show me the positive id’s


FrenchCobra

https://www.cbc.ca/amp/1.6080678 Take a read and stop being ignorant


sachsrandy

Oh. They've Identified these bodies and they have positive a formation they died at the school. Frig, here I am beliving the science thinking that there would be DNA or some kind of record... a reputable broadcast Corp like CBC wouldn't put out an article like this with solid evidence would they??? Let me read it again... dang still didn't see it. Lil help


FrenchCobra

Put aside your bias for a second and understand what I’m about to say is biology and not a debate. In order to have a match for DNA you need to have the DNA of the person you’re trying to match it to and already know their identity. In this we have their unnamed body and no outside source with which to compare DNA. The previously mentioned people were able to be identified but there are hundreds of remains we can’t identify since they were mass unmarked graves. If they don’t already know who these people are getting DNA won’t just give us a name. Asking for DNA evidence is something you straight up can’t even have because that’s not how DNA works. The best you can do is try to find similar DNA and match it with parents. These parents may not have DNA on record, may be dead and unable to be tested, or just lost in the system. When people try to cover up human atrocities they don’t often keep records. And DNA means nothing in this situation. Someone could give me your DNA and with no reference to connect it to it means nothing. Even if we could experts estimate it will take over a decade. So what more do you want when what you’re asking for is either impossible or will outlive a period of relevance?


sachsrandy

But the have bodies... not just grave... the have the bodies right? They’ve exhumed the bodies from the mass graves right? They didn’t just do refraction and echo testing and claimed they were Native mass graves ? There’s been no mistakes right?


sachsrandy

Here... good read. I’m not upset at you, it’s just a lot of people are misinformed. A family member of mine actually worked on the surveys and was the one who showed me how the media took it, spun it, and ran with it. https://mercatornet.com/debunking-canadas-moral-panic-over-unmarked-graves-at-residential-schools-for-first-nations-children/73379/
