Under glare of Sherrod case, black farmers, INDIAN landowners still wait for settlement money
I don’t know about you but I am sick and tired of African Americans getting ‘top’ billing over Native AMericans in this stuff… It is time that Native Americans stop taking a back(sitting in the back of the bus) seat to African Americans… NATIVE AMERICANS WERE HERE FIRST!!! GOT IT BRO!!!! African Americans stole land from the first Nation People Too otherwise they wouldn’t have had it in the first place!! Native Americans should be the ‘first order’ in these issues!
