ReapTheChaos: 100 bucks says that most of the people complaining aren't even Indians "Native Americans"
ggecko: But not a single word about "drink like a pilgrim"?????I'm trying to think if a nightclub had a sign that said "dance like a white guy" and "dance like an african american guy" if there would be any outrage and exactly who would be outraged?
Just another Heartland Weirdass: But just don't tip like one!
Wolf892: Add to that the government hand outs that are just enough to keep them surviving but not enough to actually solve any of their problems and you create a people who are alcoholic, dependend on the government, and very angry at the white man.
Wolf892: Currently I'm in a School of Social Work program with a Specialization in Indigenous healping and healing...so I've been studying a lot about this issue.Is it any wonder that each generation hits the bottle when they are born with FASD, when their parents beat and sexually abuse them (as they learnt to do in the residential schools) and when they know that they have no real prospects in the job force. Add to that the government hand outs that are just enough to keep them surviving but not enough to actually solve any of their problems and you create a people who are alcoholic, dependend on the government, and very angry at the white man.
Wolf892: Nope, it's easier to just blame the addict for their addiction rather than think a little deeper and and wonder if there might be a reason for the addiction...If we could address the factors that lead to the addiction, perhaps we could break that cycle of fail.
I_Can't_Believe_it's_not_Boutros: And they're not even real Indians. It's just a cheap Souix veneer.
Quantum Apostrophe: "Date like a black guy" would mean that you can only date fat ugly white women.
Wolf892: And I"m not making value judgments. I'm only stating what I'm being taught in University, and the instructors of the Indigenous specialization are Aboriginal professors who've come straight from the communities that I've been describing.

A Day Older than Yesterday: When I was learning to drink in the 1970's bars in Canada had "Indian lists." Does anyone know if those still exist?
grumpyoldmann: Native Americans named their new museum on the National Mall "National Museum Of American Indians". They should know what they want to be called. What were they called before this land was named America?I think that, sometimes, whitie makes more fuss over what other ethnic groups are call than the group itself.Several years ago, a survey showed that older Blacks wanted to be called "Blacks" instead of African Americans.
Rixel: Well, 'twould be O'kay if it was only marketed just one day 'o the year, laddie.Of that, I be sure!
BolshyGreatYarblocks: Rixel: Well, 'twould be O'kay if it was only marketed just one day 'o the year, laddie.Of that, I be sure!THIS. Why is pointing out that Natives are binge drinkers uncool, but a "drink like an Irishman" event would draw large numbers of Irish- and non-Irish-descended people?I see that the article write also got huffy about the bar's glib reference to a World War III bash. The bar is in Washington DC.[www.biography.com image 402x402]Completely unrelated photohttp://www.biography.com/imported/ima ges/Biography/Images/Profiles/R/ R onald-Reagan-9453198-1-402.jpg
GreenSun: Why is it offensive to call Native Americans "Indians"?
willfullyobscure: it is a fact that Indians can't handle their booze, much like the Irish. I think its biological. the Japanese ate terrible drinkers too but they have more social constraints so its not as embarrassingly evident as with the micks and the injuns.
