Emerson Windy on ‘Peace Pipe’ Video: ‘It Was My Decision, My Mistake’
Rapper Emerson Windy, under fire for a music video that Native Americans find deeply disrespectful, posted a long statement to his Facebook page today discussing the matter. In it he addresses American Indians directly admitting to having made a “mistake” and regretting his “naive ignorance surrounding your traditions.” He also says that he was misinformed by apparently-Native advisers, and that he is guilty of disrespect, but not racism. 

Oo, look! Someone actually got it into their head they were wrong, owned the mistake, and apologised. It CAN be done!
