    Isn't the point that a Native American can school anti-immigrant activists about who's really "native" and who's not. You totally downplay all of the pain that colonization caused Native Americans. You should read People's History to get more education about it. Native Americans were nearly completely wiped out. They were given small pox intentionally. It was immoral and the history of broken treaties still is. Native Americans are among the poorest Americans because they were shunted off into reservations, robbed of their culture and language, and land. Need I go on? The rant is/was justified because a LOT of Americans are still in denial about this oppression and insist on making excuses for it.

    The civil rights, gay rights and women's movements, designed to allow others to reach for power previously grasped only by white men, have made a real difference, and the outlines of 21st century America have emerged. -- Paul West of LA Times
