GOVERNOR CHARLES LAWRENCE: BRITISH GENOCIDE – SCALP PROCLAMATION 1756

BRITISH SCALP PROCLAMATION: 1756Between 1753 and 1756, many skirmishes occurred between the Mikmaq and British forces, as could be expected, since many of the Mikmaq Districts were still at war with them. However, the reaction of Governor Lawrence in 1756, perhaps in retaliation for the assistance given to the Acadians, was typical of English behaviour towards the Mikmaq. The “tribal liability” provisions of the treaties, which branded all Indians guilty, may have also been part of his rationalization when, on May 14, 1756, he issued a scalp proclamation. The bounty offered:”And, we do hereby promise, by and with the advice and consent of His MajestysCouncil, a reward of 30£ for every male Indian Prisoner, above the age ofsixteen years, brought in alive; or for a scalp of such male Indian twenty-five pounds,and twenty-five pounds for every Indian woman or child brought in alive: Suchrewards to be paid by the Officer commanding at any of His Majestys Forts in thisProvince, immediately on receiving the Prisoners or Scalps above mentioned,according to the intent and meaning of this Proclamation.”This proclamation is still on the books and the Canadian government has steadfastly refused to rescind it.

"I'm not racist; my wife is Asian!" Why are there so many racist, conservative, alt-right, right wing, anti-black, anti-Asian, anti-social, anti-feminist, conspiracy theorist, pro-white, white nationalist, creepy, weird, rejected, unattractive white men who fetishize and marry Asian women? How many times have you seen racist white men fetishize asian women as an alternative to "feminist", slutty Western women? If the overwhelming majority of half Asians have white fathers, with white men fetishizing Asian women as "submissive and pro-white," (and to take back power against blacks, "mudsharks," and 'degeneracy') and Asian women preferring white men for status and integration and to "feel beautiful" and to have "white" children - what happens to the children of these race-based, white-supremacist fetishistic couples - especially if they look asian or non-white, feel ashamed to be Asian, and still face racism? a website written by concerned half-asians worried about the threat these men, women and their children will pose to the future of progress.

Why does it seem that the men that pursue Asian women as a "last resort," are generally the most racist, spiteful and hateful people - especially against Asian men, other minorities and white women? If Asian women prefer White men - why is this, and what happens to the children - especially if they look predominantly Asian? Compiled by Asian-looking Eurasians and Hapas themselves. A community effort to explore the unintended consequences of "white fever" and "yellow fever", racism, fetishes, power imbalances, stereotypes, and the effect it has on a staggeringly large, growing, and unexplored new demographic. Why does it seem the children of Asian men and White women fare better and are more successful? Why is there such a double standard against Asian men and white women, whereas Asian women essentially default to White men? What happens when Half Asian sons resemble Asian men? Why do so many White supremacists, alt-rightists, and White Nationalists have Asian partners?
