[Marxism] Samoa

John O'Brien's snide view of Samoa as some sort of socio-political
backwater is simply ignorant, bordering on racist.

John writes: "And the status of 'two spirit' people in Samoa, before the
Christian invaders, probably does not help with Phil's views either."

Faafafine are an integral part of Samoan society today.  When they
participate in sport they participate in male divisions; they don't try to
steal medals off women (adult human females).

But John's support for the super-entitled rich white biological male from
the ruling class family in the imperialist country as opposed to the poor,
brown women from the oppressed country is duly noted.
