Re: Majority Rules - Creek Nation
In Response To: Re: Majority Rules - Creek Nation ()
YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING!
You mean to tell me there is a cherokee race? chickasaw race? choctaw race? creek race? seminole race? No if the cherokees are a nation than that is a nationality not a race. in the United states we are a nationality known as americans not a race of americans so don't try to pull no race card out on me. hell theyre aint no fullbloods in america the new president calls himself a mutt but the race police in the tribes are always looking for blood this and blood that well my blood is black and I LIKE IT!
it is the tribes that have taken the position of basing things on race or blood quantumes or racial superiority based on cherokee chikcasaw, choctaw creek and seminole blood. I just believe that since the freedmen have lived as black people for over a hundred years they have a black identity and culture separate from the tribes and it seems to me the tribes want us to be something we are not to be a part of the tribe personaly I dont see why you cant be both but since they want me to give up being black i have no need for them. I know you are a member and you seem to belive you are a part of a cherokee race and thats ok with me but why should i be anything but black and accepted for that? if you are any one in you tribe cant accept that than thats not a place i would want to be and its not my problem.
