The headline read:
"China for decades waged campaign to destroy Tibet’s proud culture, history: Pelosi"
and continues with:
"China for decades has waged a campaign to destroy Tibet's proud culture and history, House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi has alleged, asserting that the US will continue to stand with the Tibetan people and honour (sic) those who sacrificed all for their rights and freedom."
Pelosi loves to distract the American people from the realities going on at home. Meanwhile, over 534,000 people have died from COVID-19 due the negligence of the US Government. There's also daily racial violence, attacks against Asian-Americans, but no, let's criticize China on Tibet.
It should also be noted that in terms of COVID-19, Native Americans and Native Alaskans have suffered much more than the rest of the country.
I think before Pelosi makes her statements she should consider how bad the US treated Native American's. In Northern California the was a $5.00 a scalp bounty for Native American men, women, and children.
About a year ago I was talking to a local Native American and asked if anyone could speak their Native Language. The answer was that a few people could. It's a shame that the US Government wiped out hundreds of Native American languages by insisting they speak English.
Are Native Americans treated any better today? From my observation things haven't changed all that much. There's still a lot of poverty, unemployment, and drug abuse. Is the government helping to change this? Has the government ever tried to change it?
Please Ms. Pelosi before you criticize China or any other country look at what you have done or haven't done for the people in the USA - especially Native Americans. They still need our help.
Do something positive for us and help create jobs, improve education, and provide better. By the way, maybe you can give your San Francisco and Napa Valley property back to members of the tribes in those areas as act of good faith.
