I was not sweepingly own porch. I am learning - everyday I breath - thank God.
So, here I am drawing how bad African Americans have it across the border (and they do!) but then I started to hear we were worse! Gasp? How is that?
We treat and have treated our Aboriginal people like they are nothing.
How ashamed I feel - ashamed: I had no clue.
Was I aware before 'The Hip mention', yes.. look into Human trafficking.
Where you aware? Are you aware?
Who does not know about missing aboriginal women, to think of it is heart wrenching, so it's time to draw about it. I don't know how.. how so it will bring justice to artwork & individuals.. for the lives of so many lovely, lost souls.. being born into generations of abuse- abuse of alcohol, abuse of the system- supposedly in place to protect them- to protect ALL Canadians, abuse by more than I can even imagine to know about.
I read this article in a Dr.s office a few weeks ago:
Most are in jail for NON-violent crimes. IF only we took some of the money to put people into jail & help them instead with education and support. Money wasted on the Drug WAR.
When you know better. Do better.
I am reaching a point personally I can tell you, though my education on cannabis - what I read happening around the world. Just F*cking legalize it, enough already and stop putting people behind bars because of it! So many poor, disadvantaged people already being taken and thrown behind bars, WE should ALL feel ashamed and continue to do so until WE all speak up and demand it end. Imagine the kids- the newest generation waiting.. to go to jail. Kids who never get to get a break from the start because the color of their skin. Fact.
