    The Native Americans deserve so much more than what they’re given.

    What do you mean? America could've been way worse and it's one of the greatest countries in the world, they should at least be grateful they are given law, order and the right to pursue anything which gives them numerous opportunities to become successful, and it they can't see how great this country has become they are ignorant.

    Roman Darius The Natives don’t care about other people’s ethnicity and who lives amongst them. All they want is to be able to peacefully live their traditional Native American lives. But they can’t because the government is suppressing their beliefs and traditions and marked them as wrong and they’re slowly taking their land.

    The hatred these people have in their hearts will eventually be their own downfall, There's no compassion in them for other people , Theyll see eventually

    I don't think there's hatred or racism. They're breaking the law. Have you travel to other countries? Try crossing their boarder without a visa and see what will happen. Imagine how the U.S is going to be like if there's no laws? I feel like people are always trying to compare compared 21th century to ancient time.

    Does this apply to Europe too?

    Natives migrated here too and they also stold land from each tribe. They sure have plenty of casinos and pay no taxes. What else do you want to give away. I am not saying that they did not suffer but I would like to know what would you do for them if you were a President.

    White people who stole land : We don't want people on our land 😂😂

    Was it just Native Americans lands only ! 2,000 to 8,000 White European bone remains found in the Hundreds to thousands, were found in North and South America. What happen to them ? Could it be that Natives stole there land !Also what happen to the Vikings that settled 400 to 1,000 years ago. That archeologists are uncovering. Supposedly Roman's too were they found a Roman sword on Canada soil of Oak island, and the remains of a Roman ship washed upon Florida shore

    Funny how that old bag says...... my grandparents came through Ellis island looking for opportunities and blah blah blah, she forgot to mention that they also came here without any documentation.

    When ppl came here thru Ellis Island they had to sign the "big book" and documents. Its was up to them to find housing many buying cheap land & building their own homes it was up to them to find a job to afford to live here & feed & cloth theirchildren. They had to learn english and many had to learn to read & learn the language. Immigrants were not catered to back then. As they are now. But as the world changes so do laws. And you must follow the law. Long ago the law was to...
