Two things I hate about residential schools
- The first reason on why I hate residential schools is because they treated aboriginal people like sh** and they thought it was a good idea to take their culture away and make them think they should’ve been ashamed of who they were. They were racist and discriminative towards the aboriginal people just because they were different then the white and because they didn’t like their culture which is total BS. Kids took their lives because of how much torture they went through. They suffered every single day and couldn’t stand up for themselves or they would get beat and abused. I still till this day cannot understand how our government let that happen and how they didn’t realize how wrong, disgusting and innapropriate this idea to put poor kids through this much pain everyday for years and years and the sad thing is some don’t even make it till it was time to leave the residential schools.
2. Another reason why I really hate residential schools is because of the idea of how they decided to create it. I understand that they wanted to make it a religious schools but they did NOT have to make it to assimilate there culture and be embarrassed of who they are. The government has apologized but that does not own up to anything they have caused.
