Ok what I am about to say is anti pc but none less FACTUAL to the point of being painful.
The native american (and supporters) here are such HYPOCRITES it puts even our elected officials to shame.
On this issue of the pipeline we hear they dont want it due to their "soverign rights", enviromental concerns ect.
But you have no problems with government paying for roads, schools and heathcare.
You have no problem with getting free government surplus, paid education, income tax breaks, and having casinos that other states and locals cannot
You have no problem having your land not be taxed at the local , state or federal level.
In other words as long as your getting money, power and stuff your ok with it.
On this issue got an idea, you can have your "soverign nation" as long as your ON YOUR OWN.
How about that idea?
On another note that ALWAYS comes up on issues/discussions involving native americans how they are so much better than the "cruel nature hating
Now I wont deny they got screwed on some things . But note THEY ARE NO BETTER THAN THE WHITE MAN.
Before other people (not just white men) arrived on the north american lands native americans were engaging in the same things that ALL OTHER NATIONS
They engaged in slavery, war for land, genocide of other "enemy" tribes, breaking treaties, raping women of "enemy" tribes, killing women and
children, and mutilation of the enemy dead (on belief they would not enter the afterlife whole).
In fact I found out living in SD for a number of years the current tribe claiming the black hills had before completely WIPED OUT the previous tribe
that claimed it as its own.
Now not to say they as a whole didnt have some good things and people. But it WAS NOT only them but PEOPLE OF ALL NATIONALITIES.
Even today you go on alot of reservations they are EXTREAMLY racist to "white people", they pollute their land, steal, rob, rape, commit crime, ect
without one white person around.
While this and earlier does not justify the bad done to them, NOR DOES IT MAKE THEM TOTAL VICTIMS OR GIVE EXCUSES.
In other words in the past you just lost to another tribe.
As far as other things good and bad your JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE.
I think its time to acknowlege these FACTS and join the rest of the world.
So it boils down to STOP BEING HYPOCRITES.
Either join us and accept all the benifits, responcibilites, and the down sides that all of us have as CITIZENS OF THE USA.
Or become your own "nation" and DEAL WITH IT ON YOUR OWN.
I know what I stated won't go over well, but sometimes facts are just that.
