    Can the red man get ahead, man?

    Indian casinos are the ****. They're much cleaner than the ones in Vegas and don't have as much competition. Those guys do pretty well, to say the least.

    ...on the other hand, a lot of Indian reservations are third-world Bantustans with horrid poverty.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    I don't know, I think it is alot harder for them to get ahead. Can anyone name one prominent Native American in the US right now?

    They can get ahead if they want to. Just like everyone else in America you have to actually work for what you want instead of waiting for an eternity for everyone to give you what you want.

    Why? That worked for the Maoris, it also worked for African Americans.

    Why does it matter, So we can have another "first"?
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Why not? It was such an important day for blacks, why can't the Indians have their day too? Are you suggesting the Blacks are more important?

    I'm suggesting neither are important. If it takes a person becoming president for a collective people to "have their day" then they have more problems than any political office will offer them.
