Whoever she or he is, they may as well walk along side the klan with the ugly myths and untruths she posts here.   She or he is just as dangerous to their own kind as the KKK.  Might as well walk with them and wear those sheets with such ignorant statements she or he makes here.

The fact that the profile is so vague, nothing but a f, is usually a signal that the person is nothing but a trouble maker and trying to rile people.   They sit behind a computer screen and post crap like that, but would never say those things to someone face to face.   In fact, people they know offline personally, probably have any idea they even think and feel the way they do.  And they don't want people knowing, so they sit behind a computer screen and do it where nobody knows who they really are.

I saw you over at Aii on Yahoo a few weeks ago posting.  I was there posting about that vote the Cherokee took against the Black Freedmen.  I was hoping mad about that.  Still not happy about it.  It's changed my perspective a little about this whole Native thing.   Just don't feel the same way about it like I did now.   I still want to know and learn, but it's changed.

I go to that group off and on.  Not there all the time as it's way too busy and they post way too many political rantings.  And I find some there who are anti Black Native.  Not all, but some.

All sorts of people post on message boards...

Some of them don't make a lot of sense...

I just sum some of it up under the 'it takes all kinds'  column and just ignore them from that point on...

I've found that it's safer (and saner)...

FYI...

Some call it the 'White Path'...

It is more commonly referred to as 'Walking (Down) the Red Road'...

And my understanding of true indigenous tradition et al is that the real ones will respect your choices and your right to do what you need and want to do with your life...

So you don't need  'permission'  from whitewashed chiefs-- (like Chad Smith)--  or self proclaimed indian watch groups -- (or me)--  to pursue whatever your head and your heart is leading you to believe is the right course to fulfill your personal aspirations and dreams and hopes...

Or for you to cherish and honor your indigenous roots as you've already done so when it comes to your african ones?

Again...

It's your business...

Your choice...

And your right!

FYI...

From a friend...

Take care...

Later...

Peace...

It makes you feel though if you're not wanted because of the color of your skin or because you have African ancestory, why even bother with people who are predjudice against you.     That's how it makes me feel.

Good morning,  Bee Bee...

But in every group there are bound to be those you can relate to and those you'd just as soon not bother trying to...

What matters is whether or not embracing some of the things your indigenous ancestors were about will help make you a more complete human being too...

I'm not trying to win any popularity contests...

And those who are totally miss the point of what it means to be a self fulfilled human being ala the indian way...

I. e.,   establishing a true connection with other living creatures,   etc.,   was and is meant to make us self reliant...

That is how indigenous folk even survived the worst aspects of white contact for five hundred years...

As regards the usual process:

If and when you're perceived of as a willing student?

A teacher will seek you out...

Or there are things you can learn on your own...

Like I'm doing...

In either case?

Good luck and best wishes...

Take care...

Later...

Peace...

Thanks, I'll take that advice into consideration.

Yes...

I wish that I could give you much better advice...

But...

I've  never sweated over who chose to not acknowledge me as one of their own...

And...

I've just chosen to relate to them who've also chosen to relate to me...

Ditto my life experience has been that as long as I didn't make a big deal outta who they are they didn't either...

Casinos and suchlike more or less led the usually easy going mixed bloods to make a big deal outta nuthin'...

After everything else has been done or said:

Only a relative handful gets the loot...

The flip side is how false illusions lead to wrongheaded conclusions...

Then,  too,  my guessed at indigneous roots remain eastern (not western)...

And to say the least:

I and we and they got their own issues and problems to face up to/deal with...

May the Westerns choose to do likewise...

FYI...

Later...

Peace...
