African Americans aren't settler colonialists and they are addressed in the article.

you should probably give Black people your money, give Native peoples your land, and go back to Europe.

Right. Like I said, even if Black people weren't the ones who originally stole the land, they now live on (parts of) said stolen land. Does the author think they need to shove off to make way for the indigenous tribes, too? Is the author indigenous? If not, did the author even ask indigenous people what they want to do about this situation, or did they just assume that this is what they want? This article seems more like an angry rant than a well thought out plan.

The best course of action now is to work to overthrow the american capitalists, who are the real reason for colonialism, from power.

Bullshit. Communism has proven just as colonialist as capitalism again and again. "Overthrowing" the capitalist class doesn't magically stop colonialism. The land will still be settled, indigenous peoples will still be expected to conform to Western cultural values aka communism or be subjugated for refusing to accept the system.
