yup. Which only underlines that it’s dishonorable and self centered.

I see now what these types of people are, in most cases, excepting legitimate racist situations where the race card is called for.
Sadly these fakes/morons diminish the real victims by doing this

If he hadn't smiled they would still crucify him for being arrogant.
The smiling is what made it arrogant.
I bet he’s a better person than all those smirking punks on CNN/MSNBC/CBS etc will ever be. They should know how much smirking besmirching they do on a daily basis, making their surface judgements on all who don’t agree with their agenda and their facade.

I still think he was a bit of a punk. Nothing near what the media portrayed. Also, let me say this louder for the people in the back - DEATH THREATS ARE NOT OKAY.
Back to the topic at hand. I think we as society could all use a deep breath and time to step back. Media (all sides as was proven this week) jumps to conclusions. They had been trained to do so by the public. It gets them more money. It gets them promotions. The second the media doesn't release "all" the info, we freak out that we deserve to know more. The second the media jumps the gun, we take that info and run with it. There is no fact checking.
It is great that people want to stand up against those who do wrong. Do your research though. People are so worried about being the first to get their opinion out that they have no idea what they are commenting on. They went viral though so good for them.
Wearing a MAGA hat doesn't make your a racist automatically.
Being a Native American elder does not make you an amazing person automatically.
It is confrontational to stare into someone's eyes and not move? Yes.
It is confrontational to walk straight up to someone and not try an alternative route? Yes.
This was really a non-issue that the whole country is now arguing about.
