Blame Whitey©, that's what you're saying subby? Seems to me you should blame the locals who are carving down the forests. Or the people who are buying those wood products...which include white, black, red, yellow, orange, green, blue people all over the frickin world.

And then the rest of the article says 2004.  So... fark it.

I thought they just burned the forest so they can graze cattle,

I tried to read the article, but it auto-played a completely different story.  I hate that website.

I found a different source.  Those people are ugly anyway.

A foundation was made for them in 2002, so I am guessing they were discovered more than ten years ago.

Maybe they shouldn't have built their treehouse on top of the world's largest reserve of unobtainium.

wait? I thought white folks don't get offended by wholesale stereotyping experienced almost daily by minorities. Surely you must  jest.

"When uncontacted people are forced into contact with outside society disease swiftly follows. Here is proof that forced contact is nothing more than a death sentence for tribal peoples," Survival's director Stephen Corry said.

Hyperbole much?

There are still many uncontacted groups out there. It is estimated that around 300 people from the Ayoreo ethnicity only are still uncontacted. The tribe in TFA came out from hiding in 2004.

White people are a minority.

I've been reading Popular Mechanics from the 1920s and found an item claiming the population of Indians had returned to the levels of the time Columbus arrived. The figure was under 400k. You know, low by at least 30 million.

"The most recent Ayoreo victim killed by the respiratory disease, Chiri Etacore, was forced out of the forest in 1986. Chiri died in October 2013," Survival International said.

followed by:

"When uncontacted people are forced into contact with outside society disease swiftly follows.

TIL 27 years is considered swift...

Pfft...only discovered ten years ago?  I've been listening to them for twice as long as that.  They have completly sold out.

FTFA: "The deadly epidemic threatens to wipe out Paraguay's recently contacted Ayoreo tribe, and sets a deadly precedent for their relatives still hiding in the forests, who are the last uncontacted Indians outside the Amazon," the organisation said in a statement.

"This is India, right?"
"No, it's not. It's a totally different place."
"You're not Indians?"
"No."
"Ahh, you're Indians."
 
2014-04-07 03:37:12 PM
Hey, subby, we're all dying.
 
2014-04-07 04:10:36 PM
I can't really gin up the energy to care. I mean, do people at the stage of development even count as human?

Succinct, and wrong.  Just how I like my bigotry.

Since the article is from 2004, is there any word on whether they're all dead or not?
 
2014-04-07 04:47:30 PM
After reading that article, I'm no longer sure I have a firm grasp on how time works.

/Or was it before I read the article?

Thank you, untold thousands of ancestors, for surviving selective pressures from a near global ecology. Sorry these guys have yet to undergo such. Though I'm sure there yet remain ecologies that would fark me up right proper if I were introduced to them...

Hispania was the Roman name for the Iberian Peninsula.

The Iberian Peninsula, commonly called Iberia, is a peninsula located in the extreme south-west of Europe and includes the modern-day sovereign states of Spain, Portugal, Andorra, and part of France, as well as the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar.
