New Baloo cartoon on oppressed minorities

Coming from outside the United States of America, it’s a little hard for me to understand comments like:

Now, oppressed minorities consist of Blacks, American Indians, immigrants legal and illegal, women, homosexuals, transsexuals, Muslims — It’s easier to say who isn’t an oppressed/privileged minority, i. e., White male American Christian heterosexuals.

It’s my understanding that the American Indians are mostly symbolic, since there are too few of them to form a voting bloc and many of them are stuck in a cycle of rural poverty.

    Yes, Amerinds are mostly symbolic, but powerfully so. Most of them, of course were assimilated generations ago and absorbed into the White race, but the remnants are living on reservations under a system guaranteed to corrupts and degrade them. Where ARE you, anyway, come to think of it?

      I *was* recently in Europe. Lately I’ve been traveling in Asia. I don’t have a permanent base of operations, so I usually “live out of a suitcase.”
