Mobilizing Resentment

Published: January 10, 2014, Author: JayTaber

In her article on Native American rights and the proposed Gateway Pacific Terminal, Whatcom Watch contributor and Public Good correspondent Sandra Robson asks if the hiring of anti-Indian racists by Pacific International Terminals to run its public relations campaign against the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians constitutes a strategy to win approval for its proposal by mobilizing anti-tribal resentment. Judging by the behavior of PIT over the last four years, Robson’s concern seems well-founded. In response to the convergence of the interests from Wall Street and the Tea Party around GPT, says Robson, “Let us all stand in opposition to the echoes of racism aimed at Native Americans, and let the groups, individuals, and politicians who breathe life into that racism and resentment know that it will not be tolerated anymore in our community, or anywhere at all.”
