If you don't speak...

I am so tired of seeing those stupid bumper stickers that say things like "if you don't speak english, you can leave" or "we speak English in America, and if you don't like it you can go back to your own country". Blah, blah, blah, etc. What disgusting, ignorant, racist bullshit!

In all actuality, the same white supremacist assholes that are saying these things are immigrants themselves to this country. They have done the worst of deeds to this land; infinitely worse deeds than those they accuse of "wrecking the economy" or "spoiling the country". These hateful people have destroyed this continent and killed off almost all of the original inhabitants just to put in an insane system that replaced their peaceful and natural ways.

So, I was inspired to make this counter-sticker:

The person in the picture is Tecumseh, a prominent leader of the Shawnee clan who was relentless in his waging war against the white settlers who would steal and destroy the land. A real hero, in my opinion.

(Feel free to copy this and use it, however you'd like. I might make buttons with this image in the future.)

It's really this simple:

You're being suffocated. What do you do?

Do you ask to be let go? Your voice will never be listened to.

Do you wait for the person choking you to realize the wrong that they are doing? If they ever realize it at all it will only be when they have hit rock-bottom. But, abusers never seem to hit rock-bottom. Instead, the abused hit rock-bottom for them.

Do you try and philosophize all the reasons why this is and must be happening; all of the reasons why you deserve this or how it happening is inevitable at some point or another, so why not now?

Do you try to think of ways you can live with this "inconvenience" and then move on with your life, acknowledging that bearing this weight on your back is simply your duty in this world?

No. No. No!

You fight back because you want to live and you want to be free from what's killing you!

(Or, you want the planet to live and you want the planet to be free from what's killing it!)
