Today’s woke apology is brought to you by the company that makes moccasins shoes
Now moccasins are racist! Minnetonka APOLOGIZES for making the traditional shoes for 75 YEARS because it is NOT a Native American-owned business.

quote:

Minnetonka issued a statement Monday saying it had made money off the back of its 'appropriation' of Native American culture

CEO David Miller admitted his firm is not a Native-owned business, and promised to do more to support Indigenous communities in the future

The company has also hired Adrienne Benjamin - a member of the tribe Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe - as a reconciliation advisor

Minnetonka timed the apology to coincide with Indigenous Peoples' Day

These people that now claim to be “Natives” all drive cars, live in houses, and appear to be white.
I don’t wanna hear it from these clowns anymore.
(This is coming from someone with 1/8th Native in their blood)

Why are you blaming woke people here? This seems completely unprovoked and nothing more than a virtue signal.

Should I not wear Birkenstocks because they're German? I wear Adidas for tennis shoes, too- also a German company.

Maybe I need to apologize, too.

Bunch of fricking idiots. They still make a superior product. I’ve worn their flannel lined moccasins as house shoes every day of the winter for about the last 10 years. Yet to rub a hole in them.

You aren’t native either. None of us are, some of us just got here earlier than others. This argument about being indigenous or native is dumb. We all come from somewhere in Africa as a species. Most American Indian cultures are guilty of the same shite of fricking up other tribes and even making some disappear from existence. They just couldn’t compete in survival of the fittest when the Europeans crossed the pond.
