will be made Native again. Thanks to the Hispanic cousins from the south and the low European-American birth rate. America
As an immigrant married to a Native American for over 50 years, from the historic Powhatan Confederacy and having been intimately involved with Native issues since then, I tend to see the current fear of the re-Browning of America from a unique vantage point.
The Hispanic population will become
majority in 2040. So, treat Latinos right, or we may have to ask for
forgiveness. Like the movie, "El Norte”, a Latino (Amerindian) illegal alien
said, “we are just moving North.” America
The current American political fear is the pending loss of European power within a few coming decades. Since the founding of
by the Virginia Company of London in 1607, Europeans
have been in North America for just 411 years.
The country was founded on a peculiar history, steadily increasing their
numbers by inviting other Europeans in to partake of stolen Indian territories
and the forced importation of Africans for enslavement..This founding of the USA, as with all countries in the was on
ancient Amerindian foundations. Americas
Quickly blanketing rich Amerindian cultures Europeans, beginning with the Spanish in most of the
were followed by British bullies bent on getting a piece of the North American pie. The English
had learned their craft of empire from the expanding Americas Roman Empire. The Spanish had learned their colonizing
techniques from the Moors of North Africa who expanded into southern . Spain
This history of first coming in as traders followed by subtle conquest in
has its forerunner in Ancient Egypt by Greeks, Romans, Hittites and other
neighbors. Nubian Kings saved the day and returned to the Egyptian pharos. Egypt
WHAT ABOUT THE
After the American Revolution the
began a campaign towards empire-building and the eradication of Native
Americans. The election of the current president who campaigned on a wall
between brown USA ,
strengthened by anti-brown rhetoric, caging brown Amerindian infants, and
deporting indigenous Amerindian mothers and fathers is a sign of Eurocentric
fear of “Making America Native Again”. This governmental policy is especially
poignant since some of the refugees only speak their own Amerindian language.
Amerindian ancestors have been crisscrossing the entire hemisphere for
thousands of years before the arrival of aliens from the Mexico Eastern
Hemisphere. An example of this Amerindian migratory practice, was the Uto-Aztecan speakers (from New Mexico with relatives in Utah) who migrated south into Mexico to form the Triple Alliance of the Aztec (Mexica) Empire. So, some Mexicans crossing a belated 1800s border, made possible by America's forcing their expanding country/empire through the Mexican-American War, are "just returning North".
For Trump’s supporters, the re-Browning of
is coming too fast for their minds to wrap around. Therefore, the dog whistle-blower message to the base America
is "Make America Great Again".
is "Make America Great Again".
