What if it the headlines read ” Farmers defending their way of life ” instead of ” Natives fighting for their sacred land” would there be as much attention giving too it . The left would see ” farmers” and think who cares its just rich white people. But guess since the farmers land isn’t ” scared” the water is less important?
Fracking has been a problem for years but believe since in the case of Standing Rock . The media is trying to make more about Native Americans sacred sites rather than water . The liberal progressive are using it to push the racial divide. They try to paint it as the Natives Americans vs the white privileged frackers.
Pennsylvania is has a lot of fracking but I guess since the land is sacred the water is less important . Yes there is protesting going on but is it giving as much importance compared to Standing Rock? .
