Native Americans, like women & other minorities, should 'know their place' according to the priveleged..and the priveleged see our place very differently than we women and minorities do.

The most recent and most ancient finds are of people that were not of a similar discent as native-americans. Kennewick man was not asian/siberian in origin. And now there was a recent find in Canada of non-clovis settlement predating everything that has been found before.

As usual. They are truly the REAL Americans. We are truly barbarians who try to colonize every country we get near to steal any resources that country may have to enrich itself. And call the killing of a hundred thousand innocents, collateral damage. Then the U. S. throws them a few bucks and spreads the propaganda through its puppet media. I would move to another country if I could, but the government makes sure to keep us poor so we'll helplessly exist in THEIR squallor. This country has been going downhill for the past 30 years and as long as we allow money to control our political future, nothing is going to change. We also must get rid of the electorate. We do NOT need them for one minute to speak for us. They are liars and thieves in the pockets of the lobbyists. Wake up citizens! Electronic voting machines are easily hackable within less than 5 minutes. The optical scanners drop unwanted votes, also. Get busy with the rest of the 99%.
