Yes tonto was a made up character. But the character was a Native American being played by a white man.

On the radio Tonto was played by a white man but in the tv series he was played by Jay Silverheels a Native American.

The Lone Ranger could have been East Indian and Tonto Chinese for all I care as long as their acting was good.


Yeah, that. It sucked.

So Johnny should buy us all a plot of land as an apology.


Dibs on Killdeer Mountain!

This must be his apology for his roll of Tonto in the lone ranger. Ya know, hollywood doesn't have any native American actors.


Robert Duvall isn't Sicilian, but he was in the Godfather. Why couldn't they find a real Sicilian? Coppola is obviously racist. It happens all the time; Koreans portray Chinese, Chinese portray Japanese, Japanese portray Japanese...The only 'crime' here is Depps obsession with playing dress up. I blame Tim Burton.

Not a good example, Tom was adopted. He was Irish-German.

Even though he is white, you realize that Johnny is part Native American, right, and that he's proud of his Native American heritage?

Sounds like you don't.

he would have to come up with a way to be
shoure that the Gov dont Take it off them.
Again!!!

make it a park that belongs to All indians.
so to sell it you have to get permission from them All.
and they can camp on it as long as they like.
like they did in the old days. wigwams.
but with modern caravans to.
they it would keep its beauty.
