I am not really sure the significance of this picture, but it looks pretty amazing.
The significance is Imperialism, Colonialism, and Genocide. This image depicts the beneficiaries of the North American Genocide mocking their victims by mimicking them through tried stereotypes that were used to dehumanize them, making the public support their deaths and turn a blind eye to their suffering. The subjects of the image have donned cheap representations of sacred culture pieces of their victims, much like how some serial killers take “trophies” from their victims.
Enough significance for you? Amazing, huh?
That’s a little much, to say those 3 are mocking their victims and “making the public support their deaths and turn a blind eye to their suffering”. They’re probably just identifying with a culture that is part of their country and trying to look cool. If they’re pissing you off, then tell them, don’t equate them to imperialists, colonialists and good grief, chuck them as part of those responsible for the genocide. They’re not murderers, they’re just ignorant; educate them. Don’t lay on more hate on the plate and make consensus even harder to achieve.
