The point she makes about Native American cultures and derogatory beauty videos is an important one.

"It's all about YOUR convenience and not the wellbeing of a traumatized nation of people."

Sailor J hopes expressing that humorously will help get the point across — clearly, it's working for the thousands of people who have liked the video on YouTube.

"If you can make somebody laugh, it eases the tension," she said. "Everyone likes to laugh. The worst thing is when you’re really mad at someone but they make you laugh, because after you laugh, you can’t really stay mad — and it opens a more comfortable environment for serious conversation."

Ain't that the damn truth.

Sailor J, keep doing you!
