OUTLAW1205,

Free ride?? Ok, how about the white mans soldiers come along and take you and your family from your home and stick you on some arid, litterbox piece of land and tell you that's it.

You are such a dickhead!!!

End it now....and I'm 1/4 Chippewa (sp) from Wisconsin. Indians weren't native to this land any more than Europeans were. We all immigrated to the americas.

Now having said that, if every country were to give reparations to every conquered country throughout all history, what kind of a mess would that be?

And besides, the indians are getting it all back in spades with thier casinos...so why the bitchin' and moanin'?

i think that the land you have should be yours, but i don't think the money given to you is helping the young, the spend too much of it on drugs and alcohol, i don't see how it helps heal. how long does a grudge have to be held. i think you should have the right to do what ever you want on your land. but i don't think money solves any of the problems that are being faced in today's society.

I'm hoping the Native Americans' free ride ends significantly before the blacks' free ride.

The reservations are a disgrace, and you are absolutely right. I think native Americans should recieve benefits until the "English/Europeans" go home!!

if you want,the profits from the casino's could be used to build replica's of the same boats you came on to send you back where you came from,i think you got enough of a free ride so far,we have suffered for hundreds of years with our illegal alien problem,while your on your journey back home you can drop off all the people you stole and take that 'manifest destiny'with you too and infest your ancestors homeland with it.

Actually I am a 16th indian... have no idea what tribe nor do I really care... We are all American and should all do our fair share. I notice that none of you are from Oklahoma where the tribes are bleeding the state dry. They have ran ever small retail operation out of business because they don't charge taxes on cigarettes and no one can have a Casino but indians?? Whats up with that. I have no doubt the Native Americans were done wrong by our great great grand parents but why do our youth have to suffer. Oklahoma has the 48th lowest paid teachers in the nation, why? because we loose most of our tax revenue due to Native American... I don't buy my cigarettes there because I won't support them but why would people.. they are at least a dollar a pack cheaper. I don't hate indians, my grandmother was a half and my brother-in-law is a great great grand son of Quanha Parker.. my point is, when is the charity going to stop? I know a lot of Native Americans that work hard but I also know a lot that sit on their back side and let the rest of us take care of them, thats no more right than any other race doing that including whites. We are all Americans no matter what prefix you put in front of it.

The Native Americans just have to wait until the rest of the world's people bomb themselves back to the stone age. Then the Native Americans can be "top dog" because they'll have the survival skills.

They won't have crap. They'll have a bunch of drunken red skins running casinos for people who aren't there anymore.

A 16th is a drop which means you were not raised in an Indian home, but a whiteone. You have a white mindset.

Discussion over, your white!

Casinos, what about Las Vegas? Sheesh! Pretending again, what's new! FYI, the Indians do not recieve the revenues the major crime organizers do! Maybe your familia? Eh?
Yep, the white people controlling the goods again!

At least Indian women don't have to expose body parts for customers like the white women love to do!

Who are the real drugged up Jezabels here? It's everywhere! Nasty!

That being said, the Navajo Wind Talkers were extremely valuable WWII and Native Americans serve in the military more often than any other ethnic group. How many people can say that? Indians are still brave fighters. Gotta give credit where it is due. Even if they do tend to eat Peyote alot.

And they did take a valuable lesson from the Italians when they opened Casinos. They are smart, gotta give em that. Maybe we'll see an Indian Sam Giancana soon?

Stereotyping is your defense when the truth is presented to you.
However, lying and stealing is the game and is plain to see! Drugged up and body slinging crackheads! Oh, we read that in the media all the time, no? Proof is not on your side! Dumbo!*********

By the way, that is your world, not ours! Yuck!

Yes, it is obvious that you dont mind eating Peyote. I will no longer pay for your welfare, however. Better start turing tricks to keep up your habbit. Or, most likely, keep on turning tricks.

The Native Americans did live in this country long before anyone else.
When there "New Americans had gotten tired of the Genocide, they forced the Native Americans into signing Treaties; many of which were not honored by the United States.
Those Treaties though did promise that for as long as the sun rose and set certain things would happen.
Why is it some people cannot honor promises that were made in their name?

Why do you people always claim certain people are getting a free ride when you're doing everything humanly possible to push them out of the wagon?
