Minn. Dem. Says White People Who Adopt American Indian Babies Commit Genocide

'I’m sick of white Christians adopting our babies and rejoicing...'

(Dmytro “Henry” AleksandrovHeadline USA) A Minnesota Democrat in the state legislature faced criticism after she published an anti-white post, in which she claimed that white Christians contribute to the genocide of American Indians by adopting their babies.

“I’m sick of white Christians adopting our babies and rejoicing,” Minnesota State Rep. Heather Keeler posted on her personal Facebook page, according to Fox News. “It’s a really sad day when that happens. It means the genocide continues.”

“If you care about our babies, advocate against the genocide,” she added. “Help the actual issues impacting indigenous parents, stop stealing our babies and changing their names under the impression you are helping. White saviors are the worst!”

The post from Keeler — an American Indian and a member of the Yankton Sioux Tribe — followed up on a post from her professional Facebook page, in which she posted similar content about how American Indian children being stripped from their “identity” is a “form of genocide.”

The Republican Party of Minnesota responded to the comments on Twitter, saying that the post was a “racist rant.”

“There is no place in our political discourse for attacks on Minnesotans’ race or religions,” Minnesota Republican Party Chairman David Hann said. “We condemn this hateful and extremist rhetoric in the strongest possible terms and call on all Democrats to do the same.”

The statement also mentioned prominent Democrats from Minnesota who should “unequivocally denounce this hate speech immediately.”

Keeler also co-sponsored a bill that will “make improvements to the federal Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978 that establishes child protection procedures and requirements for children who are members of or eligible for membership in a federally recognized Tribe.”

The bill “makes technical changes and adds numerous provisions to the Minnesota Indian Family Preservation Act (MIFPA), incorporating federal ICWA procedures and requirements for voluntary and involuntary child placement and permanency proceedings,” according to a press release.
