What I find amazing is that the Supreme Court heard this case. I am hesitant about believing anything regarding the media. I had a relative who was a reporter and all they were after was the "story". Forget the facts. There were several times, as a family, we had to tell the 'reporter' to quit snooping around and basically spreading gossip. On the surface Mr. Brown looks great. But SOMETHING had to happen between him and the biological mother. Especially if she felt she had to go the route of proceeding with an adoption. I have cousins who are half other and look it. I mean, if you took them and placed them with the other race they would blend in 100%. What I am getting at is what is inside and how they were raised. Many times we took offense with them when they came home angry because some one called them "Whatever", white, Af.Am. Mexican, etc. We, never saw our cousins as the other race, they were raised withour family, our tribe, they participated in traditional ceremonies, not pow wows, they know our language, culture and traditions, they eat our traditional foods, some of these foods are harvested by foraging. They are tribal members, and have more tribal blood than some members. I am directing this last paragraph to the writer who commented about Mr. Brown being only 2% Native American. If he is a tribal member and was raised that way you can't take that away from him.
