Re: Majority Rules - Creek Nation
In Response To: Re: Majority Rules - Creek Nation ()
There is nothing wrong with constructive citicism. So far, you have not offered any. You have asked a question with the intent of discouraging people from participating and fighting for their rights. That my friend is the very definition of the crab in the bucket.
The shame is upon you for trying to be an albatross around the necks of the Freedmen. The shame is upon you for trying to veil your discouraging words as an academic inquiry.
The core of the body politic of the Cherokee Nation is the full bloods who still live a tribal life. No one asks the thin bloods why they want to be Cherokee citizens. There are more than 200,000 Cherokee citizens by blood who just began participating in the last ten years. No one tries to discourage them with the kind of question you asked.
When you tell us why you want to be a citizen of the United States, created by and for white people; when you can tell us what you get out of your citizenship in the U.S.; when you stop trying to exercise your rights as a U.S. citizen because the white man doesn't want you, then perhaps you'll get the answer on your own.
When you can explain why the American slaves should have been made or want U.S. citizenship, while you say the Cherokee slaves and their descendants should, you probably will be able to answer your own question.
And to ask such questions of the Freedmen community, and be taken seriously, would require some standing in the community. You have none. Your inquiries are designed to discourage rather than help which discredits you, shames you and dismisses you.
