to use if one wants to avoid considering causes. What happened to the Cherokee Nation in 1839? Oh, they passed away.....

not a screed on what is happening to these people. That's for another post, another time. Everything does not have to be about everything.

And the post and photos are terrific. The euphemistic language is ubiquitous and not confined to the post itself -- it's a problem in the way these communities are discussed everywhere.

Even when we attempt to defend and memorialize those communities, imperialism creeps in through the back door. For ALL of us. Sorry to pee on your desire to control the discourse.
