Ever hear of the Sámi people in Sweden?
Does anyone know how the Basques are treated in Spain?
The Sámi (or Laplanders) are indigenous peoples of Sweden and the largest indigenous ethnic group in Europe.
Sweden is touted as one of the most egalitarian countries in the world; yet, the inequality with which the Sámi are treated is astonishing. Even though legally entitled, their rights have been unafforded.
Many haven't even heard of the Basque people. According to international reports
they are ill-treated and tortured by Spain.
If I hated you, and said that I planned to wipe you and your entire family out, would you call the police? Would the police set up a meeting with me to find out what – if anything – I did like about you, or anything in general? Would that make it better?
It may for President Obama.
Let’s start with the health care reform bill (don’t worry, we’ll move on quickly). It is the hot topic right now, which has been the breeding ground for a hate topic too: The wipeout.
