When native unemployed people are referred to NCGA, they’re almost without exception hired; between 1998 and 2011, 97 percent of referred applicants were hired. But they don’t tend to last. In 2011, 245 people were hired out of 268 referred, but only 163 (66.5 percent) of the hired applicants actually showed up to the first day of work. Worse, only seven lasted to the end of the growing season

The “i didnt do it so im not a benefiting from colonialism” argument is redundant. Descendants of the people who stole the land away from the indian are benefiting today. Your privilege still exists. It will always exists. No one is asking for reparation, we are asking that you acknowledge the unspeakable history and that you acknowledge the privilege you and your descendants before and after you will benefit from.
