@ Jason Starr Thank you for asking fro my opinion, bringing in different perspectives is admirable.
Before I start I would like to say that as a white person I am looking at this issue fro a position of racial privilege and the words that I am about to write do not represent ideas that I have personally created, but are representative of the ideas of Native people who I have spent time discussing this issue with. (And judging from your profile picture I am assuming that you are also writing on this issue from the perspective of someone with white privilege).
Here we go...
Just because Boone supporters don't actively behave as racists the fact that they are not defending the voices of representatives of a population that in the past were victims of explicit racism and that continue to be victims of institutionalized racism means that they are COMPLIANT. In other words, because they are not actively fighting against a figure that has a history of personifying a racist ideology means that they support (whether they realize it or not) a system that is continuing the SAME racist ideology.
Even though there are some instances of Native People acting in violent ways we need to remember who colonized whom.
If we want to live in a world where there is intercultural understanding and appreciation the majority class needs to hear and LISTEN to the voices of the minority classes just as they would for fellow members of the majority class. How can people say that they support the efforts of the Native Student Alliance when they are ignoring their requests?
Just because one of your ancestors fought for the rights of Native Americans does not give you a pass to do and say whatever you want, it's like saying that you can say the "N" word because you have a friend who is Black.
I am particularly disturbed when people like you do such a good job at identifying the history of discrimination that haunt Native people, but then say that they don't want to change! If ANYONE wants to be seen as a supporter of the Native Student Alliance or Native people in general it is IMPERATIVE that they change something! You CANNOT maintain the status quo while at the same time expecting firstname.lastname@example.org
