ala Andrea Smith
Orientalism and Indigenous genocide are two of the three main logics of white supremacy
orientals can never become ‘native’ because we are constant threats to empire
and the natives must disappear
so white people can become ‘native’
which is why white ppl born in Africa are always argued to be ‘native’
or white ppl think they have any right to say who is or isn’t ‘american’
settlers are never native
but it is interesting that person thinks this translates to ‘eternal foreigner’ for asians….
in any case, no, Asians are not native/Indigenous to the americas. and we will never be.
nor should we desire to this, because this is premised on the completion of the ongoing Indigenous genocide
WHICH IS A BAD THING
