If you have clear evidence that the guy behind Manitobah Mukluks is faking his Indigenous identity, please present said evidence. Thanks.
You drop more circles than a dog trying to lay down on the floor. Such disingenuous approach to a discussion.
I don't fucking care what you call it, call it stereotype, call it an educated guess on statistics, call it an informed assessment based the genetic/phenotyping assessment, call racism, I could care less what you think of me. Canada has less than 5% indigenous population, on a randomized controlled trial the indigenous population would not be considered significant. Not knowing this guy's name or overall appearance already puts him at a 20 to 1 odds of not having indigenous heritage. Statistics, Science. But then we add the fact that the guy has a bunch of recessive genes, and a very irish last name (btw Irish descendants 3:1 outnumber indigenous) and I am feeling that my odds at convincing a court of my peers over your silly dodgings are quite good.
I can also play the "prove me the OP company is not indigenous". For that matter, prove to me that the earth is not flat, that the sun is not a ball of fire and that we don't live in the matrix. Fucking childish arguments.
Since the start, all you do is dodge and make accusations, remember when you posted a definition? Remember when you later claimed that it was just a poorly written definition? Remember when later you claimed that the definition hinged on the words "inappropriate" but then you couldn't tell me what exactly is inappropriate on this context? Remember when all of a sudden cultural appropriation only applies when there are economic conflicts? Apparently, Manitoba's production of products on china/vietnam does not seem to bother you so much.
And if you think that a history of colonialism is not relevant. please explain why.
Depends on what you mean of history being relevant. History is always relevant, if there was no bigbang, there is no universe, no solar system, no planet earth, no first cell organism, no first animal, no first mammal, no first human, no human civilization, no christopher colombus, no canada, no you. So clearly it is relevant. On the other hand, we cannot change our history (unless you have some inside information on the availability of time machines, let me know and hook me up with one, I want to know the lottery tickets). You are still angry about colonization? But you are not angry when britain got invaded by romans? Humanity evolved in Africa, we are an invasive species in all other continents... So lets all blame it on African people right?
