Ignoble Stains

Published: April 7, 2008, Author: JayTaber

As America’s dominant economic system implodes, it is not surprising that the most predacious sectors of this parasitic system find cause to attack more authentic economies built on cooperation and respect. Indeed — despite constant claims to the contrary — the essential tenor of Anti-Indian analysis of gaming initiatives is often revealed by derisive remarks, even pronounced mockery of Native American culture.

One can disagree with tribal policies or projects respectfully, but for those who attempt to conceal their bigotry through contemptuous caveats, it seems their ignoble attitude always manages to stain their expressions of otherwise legitimate concerns. For some reason, I guess they just can’t help themselves.
