I just don't feel deserving of the benefits. As an African American, I know how it feels to have your culture appropriated or used as something "stylish" or fun.
O.K. , I apologize for the white remark (what I should have said was non-ndn), but I'll also say that I know several folks that are "African" that are white. They hail from South Africa and are quite interesting to speak with. I actually laughed today as a newscaster was laughing about Elizabeth Warren's claim of high cheekbones making her ndn the same as he having fat lips making him black. The newscaster was actually black , but obviously mixed and very light skinned .Just thought it humorous !

Once again....there are few , if any , benefits. Some tribes have none ! Some have a small amount and there are only a very few that have it big ! 99.9% of us work and pay taxes just like everyone else.I pay taxes on my percap ! There is no free money , no free healthcare (if you live real close to an IHS clinic you can get some stuff done, but not much), no free school , basically no free ride !

All that said , this is a site to learn and socialize , for ndns AND non-ndns alike. Sometimes the non-ndns say stupid offensive chit and the ndns gang up on them and pound them , sometimes feelings are hurt. Just life , put on yer big boy panties and wade right back in. Get your point across and we'll do the same !

They say blood is thicker than water ! Now maple syrup is thicker than blood , so are pancakes more important than family ?

There are "Elders" and there are "Olders". Being the second one doesn't make the first one true !

Somebody is out there somewhere, thinking of you and the impact you made in their life.
It's not me....I think you're an idiot !





There's a chance you might not like me ,

but there's a bigger

chance I won't care
