My graduate school wasn't just on stolen land, it was funded by selling off other stolen land.

America is built on theft of labor and land and genocide.

I didn't go to UC, but all the land sold by the US that went to UC's land grant was straight up stolen. No treaties.

At Wisconsin, where I got my Masters, the US paid tribes a meager third of a million dollars for lands. This was not a fair deal. This was a deal with a gun pointed at someone's head.
