The Last Acceptable Racism: Native Americans

The Last Acceptable Racism: Native Americans

Commented Feb 13, 2011 at 19:16:38 in Politics

“Thank you for your article. I do not accept racism against any ethnic group. I do think Native Americans should be featured in the news more often, so people can learn that they are still here and have a voice! It is particularly alarming that the First People of this country are among the poorest in the nation. How is the U.S. government planning to help them? Will the Obama administration and Congress support honoring broken treaties and returning land and resources back to the Native tribes? It would be great if you could arrange an interview with Obama and discuss this. I hate to say this, but when I go online, I realize more people are racist than I thought. These people do not share their thoughts out loud in person, because they know it is wrong. Please, please, please believe that not all white people are racist! I am "white"/Causcasian/ European American if you will, and I totally care about ALL people and know that everyone deserves to be free and treated with the same respect. I know an apology is not much, but I am truly sorry for all of the cruelty inflicted upon the Native Americans and all other ethnicities by the caucasians. For all that the Native Americans have taught us and shared with us, we should be more grateful, thankful and helpful to them. The white settlers would never have survived without the assistance of the Native Americans.”

“What have these leftists done to you? You are truly the a sterling example of the guilty white American. You have done nothing to anybody that warrants an apology. The next time you start really feeling guilty about being a horrible caucasian person, look up the various race on race crime statistics over the last 3-4 decades, the supposedly downtrodden are making up for past atrocities....and then some....or maybe we can just get past racial politics and just be Americans.”
