oh fuck me man you dont know the half of it.
Im part cherokee myself, group that actually decided, "hey, lets not be raiding assholes" and actually did integrate.
The 'trail of tears' is nothing but romanticized suffering of raiders, kidnappers, and savages. How many trophy white women were those fucks allowed to keep I wonder?
And even today they bitch constantly on their little 'nations' and take advantage of the US as a whole. They get first rights on child services in case of american v native. Do not pay taxes say for goods they purchases outside of reservation, and often offer asylem for known criminals for money. Its an inefficient, amoral bureaucratic mess!
Should just say "fuck you, your citizens now. No more special bullshit. Shape up or die in poverty"
