Rachel Campos-Duffy said Native Americans' struggles have "everything to do with government dependency ... alcoholism and family breakdowns."

That's true.

Government dependency is what promoted alcoholism and the destruction of their family units.

The nearest Indian Reservation near me has 25% of new babies born with fetal alcohol syndrome. Their parents are setting their own children up for failure at the moment of birth.

Funnily enough, that’s same-same in Aus, with OUR natives…

Like, word for word exactly the same. Kek…

Same with the Black communities in American inner cities.

Her husband piped up: “They burned villages, raped women, seized children,” cluelessly even daring to say that they “took land.”

“Cluelessly” should be spelled “accurately”

These aren't even arguable. Yes, different native American tribes seized lands from other tribes, and also stole land from homesteaders.

The Truth.

How is it racist to point out the problems that native American activists have been pointing out for decades?

Kill yourself huffpost.

Every Native American I’ve known has been a gigantic piece of shit… because they were all casino tribe beneficiaries who never had to work a day in their lives.

Meanwhile, on the nearby reservation, their “fellow” native Americans suffer under extreme poverty, crime, drug and alcohol addiction, and somehow that’s all the white man’s responsibility.

Well in the two states Ive lived in the only natives Ive seen are the drunk ones with the homeless signs. I call the one that use to sit outside the Walmart, "Chief sits with a beer." Really, truly the feds did this. Free money has ruined them.

They were victims...

of other native americans.

A case study in why diversity is a massive weakness.

Reminder:

The Know Nothings were a nativist political party and movement in the United States in the mid-1850s. The party was formally known as the "Native American Party" prior to 1855 and simply the "American Party" after that.

I live in NC and live near and worked at the loval reservation.

This reservation has more resources and benefits for tribe members than pretty much any other in the country due to the Casino, yet alcholism, drug use and despair is massively prevalent.

What a shallow pit of race baiting, the whole thing.

My son works in a local and tribal educational outreach program in Montana, and the dire conditions of the people, and especially the kids (who are often hungry) is so heartbreaking you can't understand how America, our whole country, has failed them this badly.

Here's some land and some food stamps, now go fuck yourself. That's what we did.
