How dare the white man not police themselves to keep them from poluting the Columbia river to the point that the fish are toxic.

Open a casino, weed shop, and drive through abortion center on tribal lands. Once rich, buy the local politicians and change the environmental policy to protect the river and it's fish.
Gotta play the long game if you're going to beat the white man.

To be fair, we pollute many rivers, not just the ones that serve as fishing grounds for Native Americans.

And actually river pollution and pollution in general has gotten quite a bit better overall over the past several decades. When was the last time you heard about a river starting on fire?

Soon the fish and everything downstream of the Hanford radionuclide plume are also going to be glowingly toxic.

// DNRTFA, they probably mention Hanford though.

Those chemicals are mercury and polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, which after prolonged exposure can damage the immune and reproductive systems and lead to neurodevelopmental disorders.

The pollution is a feature, not a bug.

I didn't fail to notice that in the new Black Panther movie, when we first meet Martin Freeman's character, he's listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I was actually offended by the implication that white people like the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The deal was they could have the fish. No one said anything about them being healthy to eat.

They HAVE fish, just as promised.

Nowhere did it say they had to be safe to eat.

It's a philosophy called "White Nationalism" - it's quite common here on FarKKK.com.
There are several advocates of it ITT.

In about 2000 I was dragged to a modern "rendezvous" at Cahokia Mounds in Cahokia, IL., a site where Native Americans once traveled to meet together, trade their goods and bury their dead, hence the large mounds. These were all White Trash Americans selling the same turquoise jewelry "crafts" I'd been seeing in Chicago flea markets and yard sales since I was a kid and pretending to be the direct descendants of historical tribal leaders.

Okay, I understand there's a flea market circuit where people travel the country or region selling their crafts and Cahokia is just another payday on that circuit--perhaps buyers insist on the turquoise. I still tried to keep an open mind to what I might learn after having been dragged there. I was done listening when it came time for their music and dance rituals. No matter what region and tribe they claimed to be from, they all did the same oh-oh-oh-oh rhythm chant and circled in that same high knee-kick dance we all knew as second graders. Even the couple that brought me, visit every year, conceded that's all the performers ever did.

Just because there are no rivers on fire does mean the pollution is better. Fertilizers, pesticides and all sor to a of poisons in the water, just no burning oil sheen on the surface.
