You moron taxpayers within the last ten years got bamboozled for $2.3 Trillion (Pentagon hid it under their bed and cannot find it) and $700 Billion (bail out the rich guys who are making big money from bankruptcies) and are complaining about a couple billion going to an abused and discriminated against race of people who do not have a pot to piss in? And people wonder why the USA is the cesspool capital of the world.

Interesting point. When exactly do you determine in the time-line of man that point in which you are considered native? Based on archeoligical evidence, there are no "natives" to North America. Man, it is thought came from Africa or Eurasia/Persia and migrated. "Native Americans" came to North America north through Central America and South by crossing the Bering Strait, which was close to a land bridge at one point.
Why is a group who came here from another place at one time considered "Native" when another group who came here at a different time not? Do we basically pick a date and say "OK! From now on you are all natives of where ever you happen to be!"
This can also be extrapolated in the reverse. If man in fact came from Africa, why is everyone in the US not an American-African?

Hi I agree completely with you and just ignore the people who are blaming native Americans...majority of these people are of conservative background and think themselves as superior to whole world...nevermind the illiteracy among most of them.
It's a shame though that for years of fraud only 4.6k$ is being paid...that is nothing at all. Each person should have been paid the full amount + interest + compensation for fraud.
