They kill eagles so the men can strut around like they are chief big shit.
They don't give a shit about the eagles or any peace with nature bullshit
They are selfish, egotistical assholes just like all people.
So white liberals make it illegal to kill eagles or take their feathers. Good.
But those same white liberals hypocritically say "oh, but it's ok for those poor injuns. We won't hold them to the same standards. We won't judge them by the content of their character but by their skin color."
So while it's a federal crime for anyone and everyone else, indians can still kill eagles and take their feathers for "religious and cultural" purposes, when that's bullshit
and all it actuallly is is the waythese particular men happen to strut around like theyare the bad ass shit
and whitey says ok, sorry.
