Here's a funny little story out of Manitoba:
UMSU apologizes after student wears Indigenous garb to Hub event
Indigenous student wore head dress as part of Village People costume
(UMSU means the University of Manitoba Students Union. And "Hub" is the student hang-out.)
But this story gets better and weirder:
The costume in question, a head dress – feathered head gear typically given to Indigenous leaders as gifts and used for ceremonial occasions by Indigenous groups – sparked debate over social media after U of M Indigenous Students’ Association (UMISA) co-president Alannah Mckay posted a screenshot of an Instagram photo of the Halloween Haunt, tagging it #mycultureisnotacostume
The photo was liked by UMSU vice-president finance and operations Mbuli Matshe, who has publicly apologized.
What a white supremacist that Mbuli Matshe is! Probably a Trump supporter!
It gets better:
The individual wearing the costume, U of M student Shoka Subedar, said he is Indigenous and the costume was meant to refer to the Village People, a disco group best known for its use of costumes. (...)
“As the photo was taken from the back it is impossible to tell that I was wearing sunglasses and in fact was portraying Angel Morales of the band the Village People. Being that I am of Indigenous background, the intent of the outfit was not to mock nor ridicule Indigenous culture.”
"Subedar" is a Pakistani name — or maybe Indian. He should have just said, “I’m Indian!” and it would be true, I suppose. But imagine all of these people coming up to him and complaining — and him just looking them in the eye and saying, “I’m Aboriginal. Stop 'racisting' me or I’ll blow my hate crime whistle at you."
And they buy it. They back down.
I mean, if a white girl named Rachel Dolezal can get a job with the black lobby group called the NAACP, why can't a Pakistani student call himself Indian? Bruce Jenner calls himself Caitlyn Jenner now.
If we shut down the University of Manitoba — everything except, say, their useful departments, like the school of agriculture — do you think anyone would notice?
And don’t say, “Kids these days!”
Because these are the baby politicians and baby journalists and baby activists who in a few years will be infecting the grown-up Parliament and courts and human rights commissions and newspapers.
They’re going to be a disaster...
