so you’re telling me there’s an alien who regenerates into a completely random form, that he cannot control or determine himself, and who understandably could take millions of different appearances, but who all 13 times just turned into a different skinny white guy
The WTO gives us another great example of white logic: The EU ban against Canadian seal products breaks the fair trade rules we ourselves have set up and the international laws which you all must abide by, but in this case we’re okay with it because, well, we just are.
Aboriginal peoples have been hunting seals sustainably as a principal source of livelihood for thousands of years, and now white people think they must ban seal hunting out of moral concern. Every day, thousands of farm animals are born into a life of wretched captivity and thousands of others are slaughtered, yet somehow aboriginal people hunting seals in the Arctic wilderness is morally repugnant.
The notion that seals are inhumanely clubbed to death is a white liberal myth. Unlike farm animals, seals live their lives in nature and are harvested quickly with a single rifle shot. Arctic seals (ringed, harp, bearded, harbour, and hooded) are not endangered and do not threaten fisheries. The serious problems facing the world’s ocean fisheries are not a result of aboriginal seal hunting and shifting the moral blame and economic price to seal hunters is yet another trick of whiteness.
Bans on seal products have decimated the Inuit economy and resulted in widespread poverty in Nunavut, where seal hunting is the primary economic activity year-round. Beyond subsistence meat and clothing, the Inuit have traded and sold seal pelts for centuries and depend on money from those sales to survive in the modern world. Curtailing those sales by an order of magnitude has been devastating and will continue to be devastating, with no end in sight.
As the WTO sees it, this is what must be done out of “public moral concern”.
Meanwhile, when most of the food products are made by exploited POC labor around the world and no one has “public moral concerns”…
Again, animals > people in their world…
wow this is so fucked up
