1/512? is that even real?


I believe it entitles him to a casino or two.


I think that would be like a 7th great grandparent was full blooded Chocktaw. From what I understand that tribe will take any blood quotient as long as you can prove direct descent, which, going that far back would be hard to do. Could be real...? I'm a little skeptical because it's a card. They give you a card? For real? If I walked around with a card for my native ancestry most of my native friends would laugh their asses off. Also, (back on topic) most of them would just shrug about the Redskin team thing. Meh.

Are you proven? Show us... And for all you saying
My blood lineage which is proven isn't enough that I'm too white # you, the government pays reparations to this point, you liberals are insane lol

I have loans and free healthcare and certain housing in Oklahoma what are you talking about, I have all the benefits of my tribe. Smh you racist mother #ers

I didn't say that at all bud, I guess I wasn't pc enough and you got offended, I apologize!
You can see that I wasn't the only one who took exception to that number.
I know it is easier to put words in my mouth but that wasn't my point at all.

I couldn't care less if you believe me or not, I am not going to put up my cert on the net for anyone to see. I know I am a card carrying, if you don't want to believe me don't.
I am also willing to admit at this point I am pretty much just a box checker, I am not a full blooded native or do I know the native struggle. I can ask my mom who lives and works on the Pine Ridge Reservation but that is still a second hand account.

LOL, oh god I can't wait for you to complain about welfare or how socalism is bad when you are clearly taking advantage of it!

And please tell me how I am being racist LOL, you are to much right now man, sorry I triggered you !
Never said you didn't have benefits, just that are not owed a casino or two, context man.

Dude I get full benefits lol... Redskins GTFO

I am not taking advantage of welfare nor the housing or loans given to me by my tribe, I was registered when I was two, and I involve myself in community groups.

Personally if there was a team that had honkey or cracker or whitey I would probably raise a beer and have a good laugh.

Of course I never thought of Redskin as a derogatory term and actually the term conjures up images of some tough bad ass people. I mean even the Washington Redskin fans called themselves hogs at one time. Should I rally swine to be pissed off?

Now I may take offense if I came across bathrooms that had Redkins on one door and all others on another. Then there would be a case.

Lots of people can trace their blood back to a tribe, I mean they were here when we got here. He might qualify for the IHS and that is about it.


You said this, I qualify for my full benifits of my tribe and no lots of people do not have proven blood lineage that's the saddest thing many relatives did not sign the scrolls because it was a blight to do at the time.

I didn't mean you are scheming it, what I said is you are taking advantage of a system that is a social one. It is the nations tax dollars that go to that.
Tell me at your community groups do they go around calling each other redskin? How about you try it next time.
Just call everyone a redskin and see how it works out for ya.

Ok you are right I misspoke there, again I apologize for not being pc enough and offending you. It was news to me that so many tribes offered services that far separated. I was at risk of not getting much from mine and I am 1/64th.
en.wikipedia.org...
And yes lots of people have proven blood lineage... You understand that the natives were mated with when people came over here right??

Dude you don't have the perspective, that is the thing. No one is going to go up to you on the street and profile you as an Indian. Neither of us do.
You also weren't around when the Redskin slur was being used, or when it was on posters for bounties for bringing scalps.

Cheers to you brother thank you for that...

No they won't instead they will profile me as a white man guilty of "white sins" which is equally untrue. I'm glad we have come to an understanding.

Texas (where I live) but doesn't matter I'm headed to Colorado anyway, never the less you are welcome to a beer mile high or in anti abortion state.

Oh ya you do live in good ole texas. Funny enough, I might be headed out to the mile high state in the next couple years. There are some schools out there for card carrying natives that I might end up at.

I sometimes wonder if TPTB aren't just messing with us and laughing at us to see how far they can push the people with their PC cr@p.

Sadly it's much more likely a more sinister plot than a prank.
