yet ANOTHER question for white people
 
before anyone jumps my case remember we are asked stupid questions all the time and we try answering or evading in polite manner

like i said on a previous post we should not restrict ourselves by being TOO polite to not answer our burning questions.....even if i sound like an azzhole i want to hear their point of view....rant over

NOW for the question

why are white people obsessed with uniting hopis and tibetans? there had been groups in the past that approach both groups and convince tham that it is their destiny and that its supposed to happen. then they drop money that could be used for something useful and film the meetings and i dunno....maybe whack to it or whatever.....i dunno........either way i dont get it.....can a white person explain?

When you find Hopis and Tibetans trying to globally unite, give me a call. (sigh)

milehighsalute 08-25-2013 01:52 AM

exactly......

they are not trying to unite.....but a few people shelled out big bucks to unite them for some unknown reason.....even videoed it so they can say they made history.....im sure it can be found on youtube

and this was done a few times......i think the kymberly ruffs and the jimmy kimmels of the world were involved.......anyways i didnt get it then and still dont get it now

You too???!!!!! LOL j/k


Seriously. Put into perspective the ratio of Hopis and Tibetans doing this to the number of Hopis and Tibetans there are in this world.

Very miniscule, eh?

I can't answer that, don't know, so I guess I am not white. :thinking:

Actually, you aren't that far off JD. When the movie Kundun was being made in Morocco, Martin Scorsese wanted to hire all of the Tibetan folks that had escaped the Chinese for the movie. My then boyfriend, was cast as in one of the roles and when he went to Morocco and met up with all the other exiles, it was like a huge reunion for him.

All the Tibetan exiles all know each other there are so few of them. My ex-boyfriend used to dislike al the non-Tibetans that stuck a little Tibetan flag on their bumpers/windows. He said he used to get so excited at seeing another exiles only to be greatly disappointed in seeing a new ager in the driver seat. lol

Remember that line in the new Star Trek movie when young Spock catches up to his older self at the end? The line was, "There are so few of us left, we cannot afford to ignore each other" That is how it is for the exiled Tibetans. So few got out.

yes.....at least 3 newage sponsored meetings......they find a few elders......and watch them exchange gifts, stories and stuff like that........then they claim they proved they are related......its not a BAD thing......i just wonder what the fixation is with some people trying to prove 2 different people across the world are related just because they WANT them to be

kinda like i wonder why some white scientist spend a career fixating on proving we are cannibals or crossed a land bridge that hasnt even been proven to exist yet.....some try proving we crossed from europe....and some believe with all their hearts that we are jews.........we all know that stuff is wrong because wounded bear already proved we are from atlantis.....anyways i am now on the other side......i am now OBSESSED and FASCINATED with anglo insanity

if no one ASKS then i guess I will just wonder what makes white people tick.......so im ASKING

injuns piss me off......they let white people white people ask silly questions.....they put up with their bad manners.....then they turn around and expect more out of me......i call BS on that

nothing culyural says i cant make a complete azz of myself.....and i INTEND to whether my fellow skins like it or not........its not like i seek approval from anyone anyways....

if i have a burning question im gonna ask.....

and to answer your question again YES google hopi tibet and look at all the stuff that comes up

"White people" have an excuse.

MoonWoman 08-28-2013 06:47 PM

Hold up... There's this creepy store someone once took me to called "a touch of Sedona" that is run by two elderly white ladies and riddled with turquoise jewelry, "native american" crafts, German-produced Native American music, and water color paintings of wolves, horses, and young men with dark flowing hair and bright colored feathers... I thought the random touch of Buddhist trinkets and decor was further evidence of the inauthenticity of the shop and confusion of its owners... But you're telling me to them this was a completely (to them) coherent idea that the hopis and Tibetans go way back...?
