Re:

Some Are Indeed More Equal Than Others
,
by James Fulford

You don`t just get it, do you? This concept of
equality is something that white people invented (but
hardly follow), and then blacks jumped on the bandwagon.

The American Indian

rejected
all those false idealisms from day one.
White people and their government certainly had no
desire to

include
the American Indian. So whatever American
Indians have now is a result of their resistance to
white people and what they negotiated.

Let me tell you, there is no better way to earn one`s
place in the world than to fight for it. American
Indians certainly fought for the little they have.

White people like yourself should rather spend your
time enjoying what you have, which is a lot. What you
left the American Indian is a small part of what they
once had.

Go and bicker about equality with your black
neighbors, and sing rap together.

James Fulford replies:
I`m not a big


fan
of

rap music.

However:

  • American
    Indians did not get on reservations by fighting, but
    by losing. Federal funds for Indians far surpass
    treaty obligations (“what they negotiated for”).

  • The
    concept of racial equality may have been invented by
    white people, but in its earlier form of “
    fairness
    or “
    justice” 
    or “
    merit
    it is surely universal.

  • There
    is a “better way to earn one`s place in the world”
    than to


    fight
    for it. It`s called
    working for a living.
