Well, if any of them are gay, they'll surely be able to pressure their way back in.

What I don't get, is that ALL minorities are completely accepting of diversity and "color blind", that's a KNOWN fact (according to my college sociology teacher anyway), so how could indi- er - Native Americans do such a thing? Whitey's got to be behind this, somehow.

Diversity is just a code word for non-White. As long as you’re not white you’re diverse.

Ever hear anyone say that Detroit needed more diversity?

Either party to the suit can lay the blame for their past on the Democratic Party. The party of Jefferson defended slavery in the south and tried to extend it to the territories and other States at every opportunity; Jackson, another great hero of their party, was the president who decided to expel every Indian east of the Mississippi (including a number of my relations in two tribes) thus creating the Trail of Tears; and the Jim Crow South was the single strongest bastion of Democrat political power until the 1960’s. All of these facts have been made to disappear like the images of people in Stalin’s circle when their existence was judged “inconvenient” to the Soviet leader.

Good for the indians. I wonder if most of their crime is from the black people there too, sponging off the indians.

"This is racism and apartheid in the 21st Century," said Vann, an engineer who lives in Oklahoma City.

Cherokee Indians and Africans are very different races. I'm personally more Cherokee than them, 1/8, however that does not entitle me to being recognized as a Cherokee.

They'll be a lot better off in the long run. On the reservations the average life span is about 50 years. The unemployment rate is around 80%. They just “live” on the teat. Barely existing until death.

The head of the Freedmen made me laugh. Talking about the Trail of Tears, she said: “And we carried the bags!” That’s pretty damn funny.

Probably Congress should withdraw recognition of tribe in retaliation. One good treaty violation deserves another - tit-for-tat.
