It says a lot more about the people who did this than it does about their victim! Karma!

Native American indians are the most mistreated & ignored in our society today.
They need to act up, act out about how they are forced to live & made fun of by
whites in our society.
It is long over due to give them as much if not more than blacks have gotten
because the Native American indian are the first people of this country.
The Native American indian have been quiet & dignified long enough.

I'm waiting for a Native American indian to become elected to a very high
political office in this country.
When will that happen????!!

The US and Canada are white-supremist states. That not the way it ought to be, it's the way it is:

Thanks Bette M. for speaking in our favor. The truth be told. Yes, as a Native American, I have a "Big Chip on my Shoulder" . But I have many good White friends. I was even married to one, I got my revenge. LOL.

Its not just about Native american people. This is racist, its happening everywhere and to everyone. blacks, whites, chinese, all of us. I am a white american woman and I experiece it alot, by black people, mexican people and yes, i have been treated poorly by a russian woman. Yes, this story is about a native american man and I hope he does sue the heck out of the company. But in reality, you can sue who you want for whatever the reason but it will not change until people change themselves. Those that are leaving comments, a few of them sound racist to me so why are you here? this website is about making a change for the better. so be that person, be the person that can make a difference, in your home, at the office, in school, where ever you go, make a difference. dont sit here and judge or be racist. I may get some bad feedback from this but you know what, I dont care. really I dont. I know who I am and what i am about. Im secure within myself to know why I am here.

Why can't people treat each other with respect. This is such a pathetic and unnecessary abuse of someone by people who should know better. It's childish. I'd be ashamed to be associated with any of the low life individuals who sinks to this level. I hope he wins his case.

Time is running out to plead with PRESIDENT OBAMA to stop the massive Keystone XL pipeline through US and Native American territories. The environmental consequences both immediate and potential are huge. Last week the state department approved the pipeline, so Obama needs as much push as possible to say "NO" to this 36-inch diameter pipeline! It's up to President OBAMA to stop this.

"The proposed pipeline threatens to pollute freshwater supplies in Americaís agricultural heartland and grasslands with increased emissions in already-polluted communities of the Gulf Coast. The Keystone XL would cross Indian Country; States of Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas encompassing Indian-US treaty territories crossing water aquifers and rivers, grasslands, cultural sites and ecological sensitive areas. Leaks and spills are common occurrences from such pipelines that could result in disproportionate impact to Native Nations and thousands of tribal members. A spill from the Keystone XL poses an even greater threat, given that the pipeline would run directly through the Ogallala aquifer, which supplies one-third of our nationís ground water used for irrigation, and drinking water to 2 million citizens."

Find a petition online through League of Conservation Voters or Credo or Sierra Club or here on Care2's petition link. This is too important to ignore. We need the President to prove he's on our side on this one especially!! No time to waste -- let President Obama hear from you now!
