Top 10 Things to Say When You Meet a White Person
All Native Americans have had those encounters — meeting a stranger of a different race who reacts to Indian-ness with a predictable comment about your racial makeup, or a common misconception about Indians, or a (probably false) story about his or her grandmother. It’s weird, it’s sometimes offensive, it’s sometimes oddly touching.

Where do Afro Palestinians fit in with the struggle? They also face racism from other Palestinians and are often not considered Palestinian enough nor that they have the right to be in the land despite many of them being in the country since the Islamic conquest. What is their position and who is rallying for their rights?

ard-al-burtuqal:

First, Afro-Palestinian have always fitted in the Palestinian anti-colonial struggle for national liberation they participate in resistance and mobilizations against the occupation. The first Palestinian woman to organize a commando operation in “israel” was Fatima Bernawi and she is Afro-Palestinian.I don’t know where you got that Afro-Palestinians “don’t have the right to be on the land” they are indigenous to the land just as any Palestinian. I suggest you look at these links to resources i provided below to learn more about the community and their struggles and aspirations.

  State must negotiate compact with Pojoaque Pueblo
Federal authorities should reject Pojoaque’s current proposal out of hand so serious discussions can begin. No one — especially pueblo leaders — wants to see tribal members and neighbors cashing Social Security checks at the casino and losing their month’s earnings. However, we suspect the pueblo set forth such outlandish terms to keep business ventures solvent. Buffalo Thunder and Cities of Gold, with 1,500 employees, can’t operate without enough revenue.
