To those following this OP. I posted a pic of a horse because I liked it. I am working on new pics of me and when I can, I will post them. I agree, its a good thing to see the other you are speaking with. I am having some difficulty with camera to PC right now, but feel for now, the horse pic is okay. Thank you all for your patience while I figure the problems out.

yes , you are absolutly positively correct. The only racism in the whole State of Missouri , is where you live.......no one anywhere else had any !

You are starting to annoy me, and I am a really nice person , so that is a big achievement.

How could you be the victim of racism against ndns when you do not look one bit ndn? Your avatar and profile pics look white as sour cream and 100% European.

If you are the percentage you say, you would look a whole lot more ethnic. I think maybe you made a mistake in your blood quantum calculations.

Nobody is asking for perfect but I'm reasonably certain that your current approach will, eventually, not reach satisfaction for you.

As for profile pictures and the like, mine is of me (I look precisely like that) and I'm pretty open about myself and my beliefs here and elsewhere. (You should see the Internet derision I took for claiming my alma mater's former head football coach was "character garbage that would screw us" until, well, he proved he was character garbage and screwed us.)

Bottom line? Evidence is found in outcomes. If you're right about things, I'll eat my words and you can laugh.

But I don't believe you to be and am willing to indicate such, publicly.

That's not personal, lots of folks here disagree and I only get obnoxious when I think their actions hurt Natives, overall. Personal beliefs? Those are all yours man, do what you will.

There is such a thing as collective memory. There is a fabric that ties ppl together. Its too individualistic, at least for me, to say, hey well that was my grandma who got raped, that wasn't me or hey that was my mom, that wasn't me; that was you, it wasn't me.. And I'm not so sure to say its only "the folks that came before us." I think we might see more cases come out once ppl realize something can be done about it.

I agree with you to an extent, and I don't doubt that you are fine with it. Sure, to always be under the dark cloud and running the memory through your head like a stuck CD is continuing the influence, but violations of this sort, is not simply a choice or only have ramifications for the raped. I think ppl speaking out about it, they do have the right, it signifies their real struggle, and its about taking back the influence. I think you can also see it as NOT giving up, its a process of getting stronger. Its not necessarily a position of weakness. I don't think we need to silence ppl asking for justice of this nature. They saying, "We were forced, its not our choice!" Its the act of enforcing a spiritual law. The shame of it rightfully belongs on the aggressor. Its also about marking the act of raping Natives as shameful for anyone in the future. If they succeed to protect Native wives, girlfriends, women as untouchable to the metaphorical rapist, then we are indebted to their perseverance, and it just might make Natives feel alittle more empowered.
