Show a "law" that subjugates? How about the fact the US government still
advocates, by law, the continuance of the reservations, the financial
subsidy of the Amerinds, and the lack of educational facilities, both
scholastic and technical readily available to them as compared to whites.
"Give them a fish and they eat today, teach to fish and they eat everday",
to paraphrase the Chinese proverb.
"If THEY are willing to work at it . . ." Why does the subjugated always
have to "work" at getting along with the opressors????
No, I support true equality, everyone living together in harmony, respecting
one another for who they are, what they believe and how they live. IMHO,
reverse discrimination is setting quotas for hiring the unqualified over the
qualified, regardless of ethnic divisions ( I believe in "One Blood, One
Human Race"). No one should not be punished for a crime in any society
because of ethnicity.
You think you're alone in that? I was a Polio Survivor (1952 Epidemic) that
was constantly reminded that because of the Polio: I should not have
survived, would have been better off if I hadn't survived, would never
amount to anything, have any strength, endurance or learn to ride a bike,
rollerskate, or play sports, and that was just the doctors.
Add to that the fact that what some are saying about me in this group is
complimentary compared to what some FAMILY members have said when I was a
child, stir with being raised by bigots and bake in a ghetto.
I grew up to be the strongest person, physically and emotionally, and now I
believe I'm strong spiritually.
Not everyone can pick themselves up like you and I. Not everyone can resist
the presuure to dive in a bottle because of how another ethnic group treats
And dening those facts is an insult to those trapped and dying. My source: I
was trained as a Race Relations Non-Commisioned Offcer (Sergeant) in the
My apologies to them. Funny how much it is used by Aboriginals in the
Austrailian movies . . .you don't hear the other word in American movies so
much these days, at least not in movies I watch.
I agree, partially, but you just implied her ancestrial traditions and
histories are lies.
ALL the Treaties were broken by Whites, contrary to Hollywood.
As for Human Nature, while the Amerinds did have some wars, most, until the
whiteman, were settled by taking "coup". Less bloodshed that way and far
more civilized than the white method of war.
Are they being given it? Or are they being given back what was theirs to
They're learning the white man's ways after all.
True, but it is, and not trying to insult the Aboriginals, a very "white"
attitude... isn't that what they wanted the Aboriginals to become? Dark
It should be 100% "owned" and 100% shared with other ethnic groups.
And a bigotry of any kind, for any reason, is wrong, but like in Orwell's
"1984", you always have some that will consider themselves better than
It's sad when a group either has to give up it's children or has them ripped
away because of the society. It's worse that the dominant group will be able
to object to it happening to themselves but encourage it among the
I simply said it was an honor, I did not say it was so because of his
etnicity. Don't add to what I say and you will understand it better.
And you are wrong about my reasoning, but I doubt you believe that, and it
limits your understanding.
Ok, since you taken this tack, then the conversation is over. There was no
need to be insulting towards me. If your wondering, like Roy and others, how
I could be insulted by something said in this forum, it's as it's been said
in this and other groups, "insults are in the ears of the hearer". What
could be "funny" to one is an insult to another. Comparing me to your dad
was an insult to me.
Doubtful people are wondering. It is easy, when you feel like going on a
rant or when sombody disagrees with you you scream INSULT or BIGOT in a
failed attempt to lend credence to your position or to excuse your actions.
You have done it many times. Nobody wonder's anymore.
<it's as it's been said
And that is what make's people different. It is called life, why don't ya
Suddenly, without warning, Budd Cochran exclaimed (31-Oct-06 11:56 PM):
So it's over, not because I was being insulting, but because you are. I
was simply saying what I believe to be true, based on what I read. I
did not think it was funny, not in the least, but since you included
helping the kid with his car in this particular thread, the clear
indication was what I said.
I'm just going to agree to disagree with you. Anyway, everyone else,
have fun. I'm outta here (this thread, not this ng).
I have a life, a Christian Life, an Eternal Life, and a Savior, and
forgiveness for my sins, but, Roy, the problem is you want me to give up
Heaven for your Hell.
And it ain't gonna happen.--

See that's where you have it screwed up. Because I don't live my life the
way YOU think I should I'm in hell.
In my never ending pursuit of what the heck is up with you let me ask you a
question. Did you ever have a drinking problem you sought help for? AA or an
organization like that?
Oh, I told ya you couldn't help yourself and would continue to read.
