It is unfair to discriminate Indians and humiliate them by calling them national minorities, insisting that they are aliens in this country and that they should "go home", although America was and is their home even before the Europeans came to the country.

At the moment, the situation with the Indians at the official level is peaceful, as the federal authorities are obliged to provide members of the Indian tribes with a number of special cultural and economic benefits, including full exemption from local and federal taxes, medical and educational grants. This can be called compensation for lost territories.

However, sitting in one of the cafes, I was faced with a situation that just stunned me: three white guys actively discussed a married couple of Indian origin, called them "freaks" and even expressed their dissatisfaction with their presence in America - like "America is for Whites only". Can this actually be called a manifestation of nationalism, or maybe neo-Nazism?

Of course, it was convenient for white Americans to use the Indians during the wars as "code talkers" and "wild animals that are not a pity if they die" but it is very possible thanks to them that those three guys in the cafe peacefully drank coffee being healthy and free.

Many of today's Indians live on reservations, where we all can see big “No trespassing. Violators will be shot. Survivors will be shot again" posters. They feel like strangers in their own state and the problem of the indigenous inhabitants of America cannot be called resolved.

Yes, the authorities legalized gambling in reservations, but for what purpose? I find this even offensive. By the word "help" I understand the construction of hospitals with the further provision of accessible to all medical care, educational institutions, libraries, stores, etc., and not casinos, which are actually alien to the Indian culture and corrupting Aboriginal people of America.

Despite the formal presence of citizenship, indigenous people still have to literally conquer their rights through civic activism and protests. And Indians are remembered only when they are needed or loudly declare about themselves.

We just should arm native people to start an independence war.

Not everything can be solved only through the war i guess. We live in 21st century, not in the Middle ages

It`s a pity that you think so..

I have learned to think in this way from Western countries. You are in general have pretty racist governments. If you have racist government this means you have high amount of racist people that votes for these racist govts. While this is the situation, an unarmed quest will have no effect. Yes we are in 21.century as you meant but brains are still in stone age and it will be soo as long as your personal ego overshadow your logic.

What govs?..... :mellow: Who YOU?..

Maybe it`s you who is still as primitive as stone age`s people, but I`m not actually, sorry. I respect all nations, I don`t sort people by their skin color or the language they speak. Physically and psychologically (desires, aspirations and instincts) we are all the same, not considering any individual characteristics

Non-Western countries are more racist than Western countries, so I don't know what you're prattling about.

Maze all I can say is the US treatment of natives clearly is flawed as it is in Canada and whether we can address unresolved conflicts is not a high priority item. In Canada Trudeau proved he is all talk and his tears like his blackface was just a rich boy playing drama.
