Wado! Dr. Bob,
You have expressed correctly about the full bloods and the fact that it is the descendants of greed and corruption who continue to prorogate racism and oppression, not only on the Freedmen but all Indians who dare to wish for justice and equality in Native American Governments. Although one could generalize and say that it is the "thin bloods" or "white Indians" who perpetrate these wrongs. It is better to say that the ideology spawned by those intruders, those white scalawags, those deviant racists who forced themselves on Native Americans and now through generations of dilution from the "Indian Way" have taken control of those very governments. Thereby fortifying themselves with the sovereignty that rightly belongs to the legal CITIZENS of the Indian Nations including all who are descendants of legal CITIZENS i.e. Freedmen and others.
