Thank you all for the replies. No, I'm not down on my fellow Native social networking users...I understand the reason for the reaction. Truly. My point is that we cannot base Native people's feeling of relevance or importance based upon non-Natives' championing our causes. We have Natives who do it everyday...I look at the various other ethnic groups, the way they approached "creating a movement"--they developed and supported all of their stuff internally, created and nurtured local fan bases (in the black arts, it was called the "chitlin circuit," in the Indian circuit they call it "Bollywood"), and brought their internal talent to a place where it had leverage in the larger market (hence Tyler Perry's ability to get distribution). IF we want our causes and voices to get to a larger market, we have to create the environment for that to happen (FNX television is something that we have to develop, for example).
