George Brown College in Toronto requires students to sign an IT waiver acknowledging how they benefited from the ‘colonization and genocide of indigenous peoples’ before joining online class.

What do you think?

Good. As a Canadian, its high time. First Nations folks probably had a hard time getting this passed but its the truth. Canada loves welcoming people from all over the world to claim more land while treating its indigenous like sh*t. I was able to go back to my parents homeland but the people who stay should acknowledge its history.

I have to say I agree with Jorge. There is nothing remotely right or righteous about how these lands were taken from their people. This seems silly and totally pointless for a college to do, but legitimately people should understand that they’ve been lied to about the history of the people who had their land stolen.

I wouldn’t discount any atrocities committed by the Yankees but that is not the fault of their great great great grand children. Anyhow the university wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for the Yankee. And the “natives” would still be living in the Stone age. Not that their culture isn’t mired in ritual safrifice and all the rest of it
In the end it’s just part of the current agenda to rip apart the west by dividing it’s people

Our culture is also based on the ritual sacrifice of the scapegoat. We just don’t kill the scapegoat anymore.

Interesting how some comments legitimize a genocide and compare the Native American culture to “stone age”. It always blew my mind that even American woke culture doesn’t really have any respect or consideration for the natives.

They literally were using stone tools when the Europeans showed up. Some people…

Let’s say you have your own secular traditions and one day, some people show up and say “men can give birth, you will own nothing and be happy, eat the bugs”, how would you feel about it ? And by the way, they might have been using stone tools but yet, when Europeans showed up on the American continent, the world’s biggest and most elaborate city was Native American.

What I, or you, feel doesn’t change history, so quit moving the goalposts. “…compare the Native American culture to “stone age” was meant to shame people for stating facts and to intimate that it’s to legitimize it somehow.

Also, Mexico City has been the largest city in the America’s since Europeans found the new World. In 1500AD Mexico City had a population of 78K while Beijing had a population of 672K, so try again.
