In 50 Shades of Grey, Christian Grey says that when Ana bites her lip, it makes him want to fuck her..... I don't get it. This isn't remotely attractive, amirite?

It doesn't work for everyone.

In Canada an aboriginal person can get full funding for their post secondary education, including living expenses, and travel expenses as well as tuition fees. They don't need to do well in school or write an essay or prove they still practice aboriginal traditions, they get the money no questions asked.

Even then. It puts a giant chip on your shoulder knowing that people in your family treated unfairly by the government because of their race. More than that, the amount of culture that has been lost over the last two century is astounding. Most bands now are struggling to try and keep teenagers interested in their heritage and they fall into a downward spiral where less interest creates causes a decrease of resources which causes less interest and so on.
These people aren't immigrants with a native country--this IS their country and to watch their societies slowly crumbling away is an awful thing to go through. Sure, the original crimes may have been against their great-grandparents, but that doesn't mean the teenagers today aren't feeling the affects of it.

It's not "for nothing". I know that a lot of people victimize themselves unjustly but I think we underestimate how much something done against a person's parents can affect them, especially when it's race/culture based.
Also, if the government does nothing for the kids, what's left? A public apology? Sure, that's great, but there has to be some weight behind it before it carries any meaning.

Just because those kids weren't the ones personally hurt by residential schools or any of the other crap that went down through Canada's colonization doesn't mean they weren't affected by it. It's too late to do anything about the residential schools so instead it's saying "Here's compensation for you kids that we wish we could give you. We're sorry."
If someone in Germany started running scholarships for the children of Holocaust survivors, I don't think we'd be arguing about this. Sure, it's an extreme example, but I think people too often downplay what a lot of Aboriginal bands have been through.

Aboriginals are presented with different opportunities based on the government, which is also fair due to the circumstance of their treaties.
i.e those scholarships.

I don't think those people with blue eyes, or Caucasians, or for people with ring fingers longer than index fingers, or people who were born in June, or people with straight hair, or people with a widow's peak, or people with detached ear lobes, or any of these other things that we happen to be born with or without are given the same opportunities because they haven't endured something such as the violent colonization that directly changed their ancestor's lives and caused those scholarships to be presented. If they did, the very same would happen.

I'm disagreeing that ''they don't need to do well in school or write an essay or prove they still practice aboriginal traditions, they get the money no questions asked. This is unjust, people shouldn't be rewarded just because of who their parents are'' because those funds are based on something already agreed on in treaties and are by no means easy to get. Go bring up that issue of rejected funds based on those articles with someone who could help you. Anyone can apply for scholarships, which if fair. Aboriginals are presented with different opportunities based on the government, which is also fair due to the circumstance of their treaties.

It's a treaty that's been agreed on. Maybe you could go bring it up to the government and try to whine to them instead? They worked together after having a mass genocide of their people on their own land. They were given treaties which in all actuality is fair. You can't break something once it's signed without a massive uproar but if it concerns you ever so much that you feel you aren't being given equal rights in a country as lovely and free as Canada, I'm sure they'd appreciate the feedback.

If you take away one part of a treaty, the rest are surely to collapse. Taking away something they agreed on wouldn't serve a purpose. That one minority group was targeted and directly changed rather than the majority of people who live there now. Many aboriginal youth are still living on reservations, in poverty and need fundings that are rightfully theirs. Maybe we would have these ''equal rights'' you speak of if they were treated with equality in the first place. It isn't something to forget. Treaties were made and those treaties will be respected. Like I said, if you dislike it, you can always leave.

It's still early enough that their grandparents did. Why would we revert to that again? You're making it sound as if they can just go up and receive funding and scholarships. They can't. ''They don't need to do well in school'', that's completely false. They get opportunities because that was what both parties agreed on, if you dislike it, you could always leave.

If they're competing equally there shouldn't be a problem. Why are you complaining about something the government themselves set up? Treaties provide these opportunities and give bands funds to supply them. They deserve whatever they agreed on with the government when they had everything taken away from them. It's important to secure a healthy future for their youth. Especially after enduring such a catastrophe such as the residential schools.

Not true, not a thing such as ''no questions asked''. Government funding and band funds take a long time to get and apply for. Not everyone is given them and many are refused. Not just anyone will receive these either, grades are an important factor in receiving funding and Aboriginals who are lucky enough to get funding still have to go through the same application processes to go into whatever anyone else is trying to.
