What happens when Native Americans in Arizona attempt to stop construction of an oil refinery on sacred lands? Lots and lots of racist rhetoric.
According to the NY Times, Arizona is
“one of the fastest-growing parts of the country and a place where developers are increasingly running up against newly powerful but tradition-minded American Indian leaders.”
Don’t you just love the part about Native American leaders being “newly powerful”?
“Like the land itself, the fight over the refinery reflects a tangle of cultures and centuries of bitterness between Indians and newcomers.”
I wonder why Native Americans in Arizona might be “bitter” with “newcomers” (code for white people)?
