|STANDING ROCK PROTECTORS|
If I didn't know better, I'd say it was amazing how little traction the actions to protect Standing Rock has received. Racism? Maybe, or it's just that it's not little blonde girls that may be harmed. It's why we STILL hear about JonBenet Ramsey, yet FEW of us can name ONE of the 64,000 missing black women America. Minority issues are rarely covered in our media. Only MSNBC has given it more than cursory airtime....and few watch that channel.
Those of us who cannot go to Standing Rock can use their telephones to CALL their Senators offices and tell them YOU expect them to shut this pipeline down until the treaty is followed and it's proven safe, or with added safeguards.
