Post "All-American Look" Issue

Don't you all that "All-American Look" should be someone with brown hair and brown eyes? I think so because Native Americans have brown hair and brown eyes. Also, Native Americans were the first to step foot in the Americas and Canada. I have to bring this subject up to your attention.

To hear celebrities say that 'All-American Look" (someone with blond hair and blue eyes) just rubs me the wrong way. Why do the celebrities, and some ordinary people confused the real "All-American Look" with the "All-European Look"? I do not understand at all. Please feel free to comment or add comments as to what I have to say.

Iunderstand where you are coming from. Most people who come to this country know this is not there homeland. Europeans who have been here for a generation or two forgot where they are from. ask any white person if they are an immigrant, they will say no. i think somewhere along the line europeans began to believe they ARE americans, natives that is.besides if you forget about us and claim your the true americans, we will just Disappear right?..lol

Yep there sure are. Man this reminded me of this guy I saw many years ago.... he was soooooooooooooooooooo handsome. Oh muh damn he was hella tall, had long dark hair, beautiful dark skin, and the most beautiful blue eyes I've ever seen. And the piece d'resistance......... he had a wonderful personality. All shy. hehe man.... I was too shy too. His uncle kept trying to get us to talk to each other. But we were all hahaha goot times! Bushy and Bux have some of the most beautiful green eyes. I met a few folks up in VA too that had some pretty eyes. One girl had green eyes with flecks of gold. THAT was nifty. (I pay attention to odd things lol)

Anyways...... yeah the "hang glide on a dorito" white blonde is soooooooooo not me. lol I stopped caring as much when I realized that short, round, and chocolate brown was beautiful too.

Lolz Lil Fawn, I could not agree with you more. I guarentee that they would say no as well because they are ashamed to say that they are or were immigrants. Moreover, as soon as they become United States citizens, that's when they say that they are Americans.

We all need to know where our ancestors were from. There is a saying, "You will never know where are you going, if you do not know where you have been." The Native American people should not disappear because we were born and die here. Native Americans will never die, we are going to multiply lolz.

I would say that the Hollywood industry makes us feel that Native Americans do not exist, unless the White or Jewish people want to make movies about Native Americans and make profit off of us, which it is ashame.

I feel that all the Europeans or Jewish people (Steven Steilberg) who makes movie and make profit out of us, should donate 10-20% of the earnings to any Native American tribe that they desired, or to a few Native American organizations, including American Indian College Fund.

I' ve noticed how most movies made about Natives are from Wild West times and nothing really pertaining to us today! I agree with you StandsTallWomen it's like they think were not even here anymore.
