I am half Native and half Italian. I am also Catholic. The Church has and continues to do so much good to native peoples here in North America, Central and South America as well as Africa and so on and so on, It is easy to blame the Church for the few bad apples but not all the history is bad. What about what Natives have done to each other? People just need to learn to look past skin color! I am so tired of racism, bigotry, misogyny and a culture of death. As the late Rodney King said "Can't we just get along?" In this day and age we all need each other because the times are a changing and if we can't get on a new road.......... and like the person that said what if we called a pro team the blackies or the Ni@@ers? I remember long ago there was a restaurant chain called Sambo's. It was that for years then in the late sixties to early seventies because it was offensive to blacks it was changed to something else and then after a couple of years it closed down. The problem with Natives is that Natives pull no weight. Like say Rosa Parks. Can we stop riding the buses or not go to any stores? no about the only thing Natives can do is close the casinos. That is another thing why can some tribes have casinos and others can't? Because the larger nations prevent the smaller ones. What really needs to be done is to educate the world about doing wrong to anyone!
