  • As a Native American, I can tell you our rights lag way behind any other race. We were not even considered citizens of the land our ancestors had been on for thousands of years until 1924.

    As a Native American, I can tell you our rights lag way behind any other race. We were not even considered citizens of the land our ancestors had been on for thousands of years until 1924. The much celebrated Civil Rights Act that Dr. king and JFK wrote did not add those same rights to Natives. There was a seperate Indian Civil Rights Act a few years later. Compare the two sometime.

    I can identify with the man that was told "You're very articulate" as they expected something different. I'm overweight. I always heard "You have such a pretty face". I always heard a "But" or *surprise* behind the words. Same as telling me "Your very intelligent". I even had an Accounting instructor tell me once "You do well, but I wouldn't hire you, not the way you look". Talk about shock! One, I had thought we had got along well. The day he told me that was my last day of Accounting III. Very solid A's thru all three courses. I had been planning on asking him for a letter of recommendation. I was so stunned I left, went to my car and cried.

  • Newsflash: Immigrants and their descendants make up well over 70% of the nations growth over the past 500 + years, while it's Native population steadily decline. Alas, I forget; when most of the demographic reports are done, my ancestors and I aren't counted.

  • It still startles me when Google Assistant pops up and speaks to me. I don't like it. I will never talk to a machine.

  • Nutritionist have said recently that 6 small meals are better for you. Grazing all day is acceptable also, just as long as you don't overeat. Romantizing Mr. Dorsey's eating habits doesn't help, especially those with body and eating issues.
