We hate him so much, but we don’t look at our own history.

We did not get on your dash; you followed us. A simple unfollow would have done, but in the future please keep your imperialist vitriol to yourself. Fur is part of many indigenous people’s clothing out of necessity, and it is not your place to label fur items as cruel just because white settlers lock up and torture their fur animals. There’s a better target for your comments. Thank you.
This also goes for anyone else who subscribes to Western animal rights movements’ ideals and misplaces their anger on indigenous peoples who have no history of systemic animal abuse. It seems like indigenous peoples are easy, soft targets for this particular kind of “activism” and I don’t even have words for how messed up that is when the culture that needs fixing is the Western one.
