1. Sorry, not amused. I understand the "pun" but you don't use a racist term to insult a racist.

This Ojibwe just doesn't find it funny. This guy is a little too harsh, but he's got a point.



If ever you needed evidence of just how few fucks liberals and democrats give about Indigenous peoples, just take a look at the racist #Strokeahontas hashtag these prolapsed arseholes are trending with now.

We're still here.

We see you.

I don't know how to tell you that using the same racist slur against Donald Trump doesn't make it magically not-racist. It just illuminates your total lack of self-reflexivity and, of course, your own latent racism.

And, no, I'm not a Trump supporter lmao

9. Privilege in action.

I see this type of behavior in regards to LGBT people, especially gay men and transpeople. We are told "oh, it's just a joke. get a grip! It's getting under so-and-so's (usually the POS in the WH) skin." The response you posted really drives it home with the accusation of "latent racism". That's what it is for some, for others, it is simply being unaware or not caring about the humanity of minorities they claim to be supporting. If you support a group, then DO NOT use them as the butt of a joke or as a basis for a slur.

10. Thank you, my friend. It means a lot. It was kinda like a punch in the gut.

I remember here when the topic of the Washington DC NFL team would come up for years and I was essentially told by not a few members to lighten up or there was silence. I'm all in for BLM, but there are others of us who suffer too (try being an Indian in northern Michigan) but we don't have the numbers or clout to really drive it home. No lives matter until we all matter.

Thank you again. You brought me to tears.

15. Yes, it'd be nice to see this same outrage over all the gay jokes about Putin and the buffoon.

People just love giggling about those.

11. I agree

I looked at the hashtag was glad to see these Tweets from people I respect. If they're saying this than I'm with them.

2. I don't think I like this one.

Strokes are no laughing matter and I hated the racist use of Pocahontas name.

If Dump has lied about having strokes, he needs to be voted out for the safety of the world.

8. Actually, it's driving Trump crazy - he can't stop tweeting that he didn't have mini strokes

Some may not like it but itís trending # 1 and the tweets about Trump claiming Antifa is bringing bags of soup to use as bricks. Trump said that when the dark shadow people get caught with the soup, they can lie and say itís for their family. Canít make this shit up.

13. No it isn't, it's disgusting

1. It is RACIST AF! Stop it. It is exactly like all the "tard" edgelord "jokes." They aren't funny, either. STOP IT.

2. My grandfather died from a massive stroke, and I know I'm not alone with that on this board.
