The Cherokee Nation is racist!
If a Cherokee man married an outsider, their children were considered full blood Cherokee, but if a Cherokee woman married an outsider, their children
were not Cherokee.
Black Cherokee are not regarded as Cherokee.
Therefore The Cherokee Nation are racists.
Ironic for a group trying to get sympathy fro their indigenous status.
We Had this as a government policy in Canada up until 1982.
They were trying to assimilate/eliminate First Nations people entirely.
The rationale was that Men could marry a First Nations woman and their children would be white.
They believed that no decent white woman would want to marry a First Nations man so their children were not affected.
There was also a policy that if a First Nations man were to get an education or serve in the Military, they would become white.
