    Get a clue, numbnuts.
    Bob,
    I live quite close to a large Reservation. Is it your claim that there are Official barriers that prevent any integration?
    The last comment was not your best.

      There are - in the form of those government handout as and government housing that keep the Indians on the res instead of joining America.

      We have reservations in Colorado, too.

        • Are we referring to the Carnival Game or real Poker game? I can deal the carnival version.

            That's "condescension", and you're doing it right now.

            As a veteran and a taxpayer, I have no obligation to support the Amerinds simply because of ancestry. That's just another hugely wasteful welfare program and it clearly hasn't done the Amerinds any good.

            Time to join the rest of the 21st century world and move on, like everyone else did long ago.

              White people been oppressed a lot in the US?

              Let Irish groups protest Notre Dame and maybe someone will care.
              You asked if white people have been oppressed a lot in the US, I gave an example and you pretend like I'm somehow not answering the question?

              I guess Irish immigrants being discriminated against doesn't count towards white people being oppressed?


              "Try a remedial reading comprehension class..."

              Great way to get your point across, going for the personal attack.

                The comprehension class would help. If Irish groups protested Notre Dame, then someone would care. Native American groups are protesting the various nicknames and now people care. All I said was that Irish groups are not protesting Notre Dame so no one cares. Capiche?

                  Do you think the Notre Dame logo and mascot could be taken as offensive if not more offensive than many of the Native American ones?

                    Not more offensive but if there was a substantial group of Irish protesting the logo, then they would have to be taken seriously. There are a substantial group of Native Americans protesting the various logos depicting them, as they see it, in a negative light. So why not listen to them? The Cleveland name might not be offensive to them but they have registered their dislike of the logo, which does seem to be a racist caricature while the Washington logo isn't protested so much as the name "Redskins" which was used pejoratively.

                    • I'm offended by all of this gratuitous complaining -- and gratuitous a lot of this certainly is. Why aren't we protesting that?

                        I don't believe that many Native Americans are actually offended by the mascot names/logos. Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems like such a petty thing, I can't see it being a major concern. I feel like the lawsuits and protests are mainly money grabs and attempts by civil rights groups to create an issue where there never really was one.

                              As soon as there is money to be had via lawsuit!

                                If you start one, let us know so we can watch.
