    Casinos? The right to govern their own lands? Special laws for indians?

    Idiocy!

    Either join in with the rest of the society that conquered you (or grew up around you).... or starve (go back to teepees & bow-hunting deer).

    Just as simple as that.

    You can have indian pride & follow your tribes customs/beliefs while living like every other normal person in your country.... noone's stopping you.

    The past is the past... get the fuck over it!!!!!

    Agree? Disagree?

    I disagree, where are you gonna gamble if your not close to Vegas or Atlantic City. Plus the Red man has been fucked over pretty good he needs a break. At least blacks can play pro ball what do Indians have to look forward to.

    Its funny you mention this because I just found out a guy at work is Indian and can claim tax exemptions. The thing is he looks whiter than I am, and I'm Anglo/Scots/Irish.

    I believe it's Native American's. I'm also trying to think about a point concerning the fact that you either used to be Native American or British or something, but my mind is fucked and won't work.

    That's pretty easy to say when your land wasn't stolen, your women weren't raped, and your lively hood was not taken away.

    Just be glad I didnt say "wagon-burners" or even WORSE! :err: I refuse to cater to what a race wants ME to call them. Indian is a perfectly acceptable word.

    You know what? I dont want to be called "white" anymore by people of a differing race. I find that non-white races seem to use it in a derrogatory manner. I want to be called a caucasian-american from now on!

    Native Indians have had it worse than any other race in the last 500 years. But the modern day natives shouldn't be pissed off anymore. Most natives have gotten over this and aren't mad because they know that the white devils aren't the same white devils that tried to murder them all off. And they aren't the same native americans going through though times...

    You could say blacks had it bad too, but they can now be lucky that they are part of America because they'd probably stuck in Africa, straving to death if we haven't sent them over here.

    Bottom line is everybody's ancestors has been slaves or fucked over at one time or another. Should we forget about the past? No. But is it time to get over it? You damn right.

    Haha, the past is the past! You can't point the finger at white people and say "Hey their ancestors did this blah blah blah do this" and you can't look at indians today and go "oh sorry for stealing your land blahblhalblah heres some money" They had nothing to do with it. My friend Indian Chris (I know from our local skatepark) gets these "Indian Checks". He gets like 1000 dollars or something a year, and when he turns 18 he's getting a 43,000 dollar check. WTF?! For what? Do you know what he spends his money on? Oxycodone and marijuana. He's a oc fiend. He's not different than me or any other of our friends, except he was born from a certain blood line. And he gets all this special shit, I'm not complaining, I don't really care, I just find the logic behind it funny.

    edit: War is over... if you want it. :p

    That's perfect. I don't feel they're having a harder time than anyone else in today's society. I see a person when I talk to them. Not an Indian or a negro.

    What gave Americans the right to help Israel get their land back from the Palestinians that have had it for over 2000 years, and yet Indians from a couple of hundred years ago were raped, murdered, tortured and enslaved, lost all their land and now they get what in return, casinos and hard rock cafes?

    not totally related to thread, just thought I should bring it up.

    You know what pisses me off? How Black people and Hispanic people get twice the amount of college aid than white or asian people simply based on their skin color. The colleges do it to "diversify" their population. Bunch of bull shit if you ask me. Oh look, you're skin is dark, have an extra 10 grand! But these scholarships are either provided by private schools or private organizations so they can do what they want with their money. It sill pisses me off though. Instead of giving money based on skill or aid, people are getting aid because on their race.

    And if they are... its their own fault. If they want to stay on the rez .... make NO money, recieve government handouts ... & barely subsist ..... then its their own fault.

    The ones who leave the rez & join the REST of the society (of the country they live in).... are the ones who make better lives for themselves.

    No. You can still remember the past, teach the past, whatever. However, punishing or rewarding people based on past events NOT involving said people is ridiculous. Why should someone be rewarded based on someone else's past? People need to stop treating race as an entity and treat people on an individual basis, not race.
