Black in Seattle.
Ronnie M.

From my sister:
“Unfortunately this opinion piece is incorrect, Native people are the smallest minority group in Seattle. We comprise less than 1% while living on traditional lands. We are rendered invisible despite the city being named for our great Chief, despite all the liberals of all races and ethnicities marching for #noDAPL, despite our children representing the largest group of “high needs” foster kids, despite a school system that fails our students so badly we are more likely than any group not to graduate, and yet despite all of that we are still here. And when all others have left, we will still be here. I hear the frustration of the author of this piece, however I wish she wasn’t complicit in the colonial narrative that continues to pretend all the native people are dead and gone. You are on our land.”

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
