Hey cracker Porter - why don't you take care of the old hospital - Erie Depot - ward 1 school - killbuck school and the other parcels the nation owns.Pay the money you owe the city for back rent and the money you owe for shutting down Rochester St. Maybe all whitemen should quit spending money here at the casino - gas stations and smoke shops.Where would that leave the Nation then. You would be the first one to leave town. You treat people like shit and that is just what you will get in return. By Cracker
The Nation will get right on that, just cause cracker mike from hindsale said to.

I thought this was a topic about the ice pond, or are you insinuating that the ice pond is a symbol of the larger struggle of the white man to throw off the oppressive yoke place upon our unwilling heads by our evil red skinned overlords?

When Moe John was President, all they hype was on what he did wrong, the same with Barry Snyder and now Rob Porter. Regardless of whether you are Native or Non Native, we all live in Salamanca, we all have a stack in this city. Non-natives want to blame Rob Porter and his administration for the downfall of Salamanca, I'm sorry but the current and past administration of the SNI have nothing to do with the City Administration, it has no say in the decisions made by the City Council and their attorney, everything that is happening to THE CITY OF SALAMANCA is at the hands of Mayor Jeff Pond and his administration. Mayor Pond felt the Nation was being devious in changing the wording in the agreement over the ice skating pond and refused to sign it BUT also refuses to say exactly what that was, so the people know exactly what it is that the SNI is once again being accused of. What exactly did Salamanca do for a budget 5 years ago before the casino??? Why was Mayor Pond's own sister holding two positions in city hall?? Who told them to renovate city hall?? Who told them to buy new fire trucks and equipment?? It certainly wasn't the SNI Administration. Who approved the budget for the City?? The SNI Administration?? No, the Mayor and his administration. The SNI has its downfalls and it's own internal misconducts BUT so does the city of Salamanca!! Native or Non-Native grow up, sober up, put that crack pipe down and face reality, WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!Each and everyone of us and all we are doing is teaching our children to be prejudice..Non-Natives against Natives and Natives against Non-Natives and exactly where is that getting us?? Tell me!!! Instead of beating everything down, for once everyone should pull together and pull this city out of the gutter and stop throwing accusations around that you do not have first place knowledge of.

Why would I want to quote you on anything? Very little of what you say makes sense or is worth repeating.

Plus, you are not an SNI citizen, so your opinion on this matter means jack crap.

You are correct about one thing I am not a citizen of the Seneca Nation of Indians but I do respect 99.8% of them!

Are you a citizen of the SNI and if so what percentage of whites do you respect?

There lets pull out the race card?!

So glad there are white people available to determine who is Native and who isn't. Where would Indignous peoples be without white folks? And the "race card" must hurt a lot for you guys; being white is so very, very hard. All the oppression, historic and current, must be so difficult for you to endure day after day! Do you want a kleenex?

Wanna know the definition and reality of colonization? Read a book. Better yet, read about the application of racial categories by white folks and how it has been used in the ongoing policy of assimilation towards Native peoples. Then you can look in the mirror and see colonization for yourself.

Instead of changing the subject in an effort to describe the racial make-up of the Seneca Nation, let us stick to the ice pond debacle. The City administrators are scapegoating instead of creatively solving the problems we are facing.

If the city cannot open the ice pond this winter, then this decision or lack thereof rests on the people running the city. If the city cannot accept this then it may be time for it to dissolve and turn into a township or other municipality.
