    Be that as it may, it is an interesting conundrum where in one corner we have "the local 'first inhabitants' support it, nothing to see here, move along" and in the other "it is our duty to fight for the oppressed and downtrodden, even if they don't want us to fight for them".

    Depends how you define "injustice" and "racism" I guess.
