I was met with an interesting question, after someone being indignant that “English” people (meaning white) weren’t allowed to kick other people off “their” land. They were also annoyed that the “English” people, under international Law are not protected under Indigenous Laws.
It really is a simple answer. The English of NOW aren’t indigenous to England. Just because your white, just because other white people took over the Britannia. England hasn’t even always been called England. England has always been multicultural, essentially, lol
England has had Vikings, Germanic Tribes, Scots, Celts and Romans. Which most of them are white, guaranteed, but they came from other lands and other cultures.
The England we know now, really didn’t start to happen until about the Middle Ages. Most “English” people now, although white, don’t come from the beginnings of England now, lol. Does that make sense?
Indigenous Australians, “Americans”, etc. Have mainly been there since the beginning. Does that make sense?
Indigenous Peoples are distinct social and cultural groups that share collective ancestral ties to the lands and natural resources where they live, occupy or from which they have been displaced. The land and natural resources on which they depend are inextricably linked to their identities, cultures, livelihoods, as well as their physical and spiritual well-being”
The English people of now, are not distinct enough. Sorry, racists, lol. The people of England have also not been displaced. England has been the one displacing others.
