Racist Rhetoric

This poem is unpublished at this point. I am sharing as it simulates a lot of the online chatter I see about Idle No More. I have also heard these sorts of racist opinions by many people in coffee shops and other public spaces.

The racist language emulates the disgusting, vile and hateful messages that exist with Canada’s dominant culture. The attitudes of the vast majority towards First Nations is shifting. That is hopeful. But we have a long way to go.

Please remember that if you cannot read the text of these images that if you click on each one they expand for easy reading. Enjoy my friends.

One response to “Racist Rhetoric”

    Your poetry is pathetic, like this entire blog. Maybe you should take a few cues from Ezra Pound, another “fascist loser” no less. 😀
