Who Speaks for the Children of Slaves?

The issues have received much attention over the removal of Blacks from the Cherokee Nation.

I hear lots arguments are made for those who have blood ties.
I listen closely to those who speak for the ones who have blood.
I don't see any defense coming from them about the Freedmen in general.

Even the US did not throw out the slaves after the war was over.

My question----Who speaks for the descendants of the Cherokee slaves?
They did have slaves.

Do those who stem from the slaves in the tribes have anyone who speaks for them?
Don't they have ties?
Who defends their rights?
Does their being slaves, justify their having no rights?

If the ones thrown out get to take their blood ties, submit them and get back in, will they in turn vote to expel the ones who slaved for decades?

Why ignore them?
Is their having ancestors who were slaves their crime?
Do the blooded folks really hate the ones who lived among them that much?

Very interesting.
