"Adoptive parents have the right to choose between age, country, race, handicap, et cetera. The fact that certain countries remain strong favorites for adoptive parents speaks volumes of how racialized thinking continues to live on under anti-racist surface narratives. Korea, Ethiopia, and Colombia are countries whose children fit Eurocentric standards of beauty more than others in the same regions; compare children from Korea to children from Malaysia, children from Ethiopia to children from Kenya, and children from Colombia to children from Bolivia. Furthermore, [Western] adoptive parents display a clear preference for girls and ‘racially pure’ children."

"To bring him out of savagery into citizenship we must make the Indian more intelligently selfish before we can make him unselfishly intelligent. We need to awaken in him wants…Discontent with the teepee and the starving rations of the Indian camp in winter is needed to get the Indian out of the blanket and into trousers, - and trousers with a pocket in them, and with a pocket that aches to be filled with dollars!” - Merrill E. Gates 
Dawes Allotment Act of 1887 
The act provided for the division of tribal lands into individually-owned parcels and opening “surplus” lands to settlement by non-Indians and development by railroads.
BASICALLY the U.S government began imposing capitalism and wanted Indians to be more selfish and end the sharing of land. 

And by “U.S government” we mean European invaders, as it forced actual, indigenous Americans to adopt this Eurocentric bullshit way of life.

"I don’t believe in charity. I believe in solidarity. Charity is vertical, so it’s humiliating. It goes from the top to the bottom. Solidarity is horizontal. It respects the other and learns from the other. I have a lot to learn from other people."

- Eduardo Galeano (via mexiroccan)
