    No, what's sad are people who cling to failed cultures and spend their lives rotting away on a chunk of useless land while the rest of the world passes them by. Anyone on the reservation can get up, go to the big city, get an education, get a good job and live a good life. Anyone who does not, who refuses to get off that chunk of land because of their ridiculous dead culture, is an idiot.

    I agree with you. No one in my family (Dad's side, my mum's a full on brit/scot) is on a reservation.

    It's stupid to stay on reservations, they stifle opportunity.

    Where I won't agree with you is clinging on to a "dead" culture. Personally, I retain 0% of my native culture (because being honest I look Scottish as hell and act American as hell) but I don't think the culture is inferior or dead or anything.

    Canada's treatment of First Nations is pretty ugly, especially the first three quarters of the 20th century. There is huge sensitivity to that here. Also, Indians make up about 30% of this areas population, they resent being called "east Indian" as my friend Bondhar says "I know of no one born in east India."

    You simply don't use terms like that here.

    The fact is, American Indian culture, and it doesn't really matter which one you're talking about because they've all suffered the same fate, they all lost the cultural lottery. They didn't succeed, others came along that were more successful and produced superior results. Therefore, sitting around clinging to a culture that is demonstrably inferior doesn't impress me. I don't care about their heritage, I don't care about anyone's heritage, I think it's equally stupid for people to call themselves hyphenated Americans. You're American. Deal with it. Native Americans are Americans. They need to deal with it. Lots of them have and have become extremely successful. Some of them have squandered their lives sitting on a useless chunk of land, dancing around a campfire. Those people have problems.

    Now comes the Chick Fil A effect.

    Some will boycott, while several times more will make a point to support FedEx.

    Time to buy some FedEx stock.

    Very interesting. Go after corporate sponsors.
