To all you stupid ignorant people who think indians make money on the casinos.Iam a fullblooded choctaw and I have never received one cent from the choctaw nation or the casinos.Check it out! most of the people who do bennefit are white people who found a way to screw us again.Get the choctaw paper,you will see what Iam talking about.The word Noholo means white people taken from the original choctaw word 'Nani holo' which means ,SELFISH,GREEDY and STINGY
Nani holo, that is what the people who run your casinos are. I assure you all of their millions of profits are not going to white man, if they are, they should find different work because they are not fit to run a business.

I respect the TRUE American Indians for sticking to their game plan and getting what they can from whites. I would be more than happy to segregate all of our cultures if I could just get the financial stability through reparations or gaming casinos to do so. Native Americans have successfully fought to bleed white America of the money they owe to them.

Pretty soon other minorities in America will one day get what is owed to us when we have enough ethnic politicians and representatives in power to hear our political voices. New America is here! Why won't whites admit they are living on stolen land and head back to Europe? That would be the best way to correct SOME of the wrongs against Natives. Why is Europe so terrible that Caucasians do not want to return to it? Don't a lot of wealthier whites in America vacation and spend time in places like Italy and England anyways? Just go back and make the best of it where people are all like you and look like you.

Just saying that whites would be much happier around their own kind. Then they could stop scapegoating their problems on minorities in America.

You know nothing about what the Indians went through. IF you took black history and the Indian history and put them side by side, the black history would be a walk in the park compared to what the Indians had suffered.

You want to talk about whites not belonging in America, blacks do NOT belong here either. Blacks came from Africa. Whites from Europe.

Alot of whites have admitted that the land was stolen from the Indians. The people that made empty promises to the Indians did wrong. And even though now it is starting to be paid back, it is still a slow process, when it should never have come down to that.

You really need to read up on history. It seems to me you forgot your motherland isn't America but Africa.

I do have a question regarding Cherokee Casino. Now that they have merged with Hard Rock will Hard Rock pay taxes or are they exempt as well? I have been there to eat a few times since the change (Friday night seafood lol) and the place seems dead. Is it just me?
Casinos aren't exempt, the Tribes pay millions upon millions of taxes each year. And with a bill passed 5 or so years ago they give millions to oklahoma "education.

They give millions to Indian education centers, but not to public schools. Why would casinos give to the same public education system that forced assimilation and integration upon them?
