But if the Asker wanted that, she would have looked up those things herself. The readers are def not going to go to all that trouble just to get what you think is relevant. The Asker is looking for your quick assessment and opinion, not a list required for a term paper.🤷🏻♂️ so I disagree with the idea that it may “help clear up the idea.”
Ethnic self determination is a horrible idea. In today’s world, your ethnicity s used to determine financial decisions that help people by “leveling the playing field”. In other words, give away money. If you can just self determine you are in a group that is the latest flavor of the month, for say, a prestigious college, that is not fair, of course. Ethnic self determination is just one offshoot of the latest ridiculous idea that you can self determine your gender. We all know that is NOT true. It goes against all science. Typical of progressive movements or ideas, it is used to over reach on many things. The #me too is among those good ideas that were weaponized for political gain ie the Kavanaugh attempted lynching.
@Girther10 I think I'm using the wrong phrase...Let me go back and reread what the person I was talking to yesterday said to me and I'll get back to you.
@Asker- you seem to imply that if it is not directly related to corporate litigation, you know nothing about anything... lol I know that can’t be true, is it? 🤷🏻♂️🤷🏻♂️🤷🏻♂️
It’s ok, you don’t need to do all that, but thanks.🥰😍
Like female circumcision?
Was thinking of much worse than that.Such as groups that still believe and support slavery, early and forced marriages, crimes committed in the name of honour etc.

You’re the guy I was talking to that made me think of this question.
Glad I'm having an influence as a representative or ethnic nationalism. It isn't wrong or racist or any of that garbage , it's natural and healthy.
At least you were honest and didn’t try to mislead me or make fun of me for not knowing what it was. Thank you for that.
I troll a lot of commies and thots etc on this site but I'm very serious about ethnic nationalism it could solve so many of the problems we're dealing with just because we keep defying nature. That's where racism and all these social problems come from.
Like George Lincoln Rockwell and Malcolm X discussing separatism. I learned about that in college. I don’t agree with either of them on that issue (though Malcolm X became a totally different person after he switched from the Nation of Islam to “orthodox” Sunni Islam), but I do find history fascinating.
Rockwell was a Nazi Malcom X was basically a Nazi to until he lost his racist beliefs then his own people killed him. That's why I don't really try to change the minds of people like you find on Stormfront , it wouldn't take much for one of these Nazis to just put a stop to someone like me. I do what I can posting about ethnic nationalism it doesn't have to involve hate or racism like the black and white nationalist types seem to want. All native tribes are essentially ethnic states but no one is calling them racists. Somehow the movement needs to find people who take it seriously and want something positive to come of it. Ethnic nationalism can be about love and helping each other as well. Maybe we're mature enough as a society now to allow something like that. The issue of race will not go away though regardless of what we decide to do about it.
I agree with your analysis
You doing oil company stuff then?
Possibly. I have a number of corporate clients.
Rez laws can be tricky. Are you wondering about any specific nation? I've known some alright Lakota, when you get farther north, into the tribes that identify themselves by slurs (Souix) then it gets rough.
Oh. No. This isn’t about a case. I was just curious.
That's okay :-). I was just saying that I'm not the kind of lawyer who typically deals with political questions like that. And yeah, I guess so. The Aborigines are an indigenous ethnic group.
It doesn't work so well. It's often a way for colonial governments to put a pretty face on apartheid. "Oh look. We're giving them independence." They isolate their indigenous populations on the crappiest land and give them no means of being self sustaining. Look at the Bantustans in apartheid South Africa or Indian "reservations" in the U. S. They don't have the benefits of citizenship but they aren't independent, either. And look at the terms of "the deal of the century" proposed by Trump for Israel/Palestine. In the end, "self determination" doesn't mean self-determination. It just gives colonial governments an excuse to point out how those people's failure to thrive is their fault.
Showing the Native American tribes the benefits of living in certain rock-strewn sectors of South Dakota...
I'm not. Who is that?
She's a white woman who says she is black. Her story was in the news a few years ago. She's not even mixed race and she's no more black than Elizabeth Warren is Native American.
Huh. She identifies as black even though she's not biologically African-American?
I remember her. She was some kind of executive for the NAACP, she was blonde but died her hair black and wore dreadlocks... she was eventually fired- I think, for doing that, impersonating a black person... lol😅😂
And this is what I was talking about in my first reply above>>
Thank you. I was afraid I was using the phrase wrong.
Textbook example is the formation of ethnostates from the former European empires after WWI.
That's what I thought, but apparently it's an alt-right buzzword. Unless I'm using it wrong...
If appreciating positive ethnic attributes is considered an alt-right perspective I guess I'm basically a Nazi
I agree with you!!
It can be a good thing. The only challenge is having fair agreed upon ethics
No, honey. Ethnic, like a racial or cultural group. Not ethics.
So ethnic groups determine their ethnicity?
Sort of. Basically self-government.
Me either lol
