    Oh my.

    I'm a little distressed by this. The Cherokee have a legitimate beef with the US Government. But to take it out on the descendents of their own slaves? Some part of this story is missing.

    Following the money:

    I bet the support of these descendants is eating into casino and tobacco revenues.

    The Bureau of Injun Affairs has destroyed Injuns. They are abject welfare cases.

    It's well established that you're a troll. But I appreciate your contribution nonetheless. Does that help? Do you just need a little love? I'm making out with you in my mind right now.

    I find human nature quite interesting here - how one historically oppressed minority people group so easily turns blind eyes toward discriminating against other historically oppressed minority people groups.

    Sad how essentially fucked up we can be.

    Especially when money comes into play.

    Just as well they have all those kind hearted left wingers, to put out their hand and feed them. Or do we need a republican to teach them to fish, so they can feed themselves. Do they want their land back? As do the natives of Hawaii.

    Or the native population of Australia. Mind your own damn lawn, and we'll take care of ours.
