Opinion: Inequality part of freedom

This editorial should be called Inequality is part of Colonialism. The colonists were the original freeloaders. They also freeloaded on their debt to the British over the debt the British accrued defending the colonies in the French and Indian War by tossing tea in the Boston Harbor. Original freeloading. All thirteen colonies violated Indian Non Intercourse Act of 1790 by treatying lands without congressional act. Most of them got away with it. Do you realize George that the US Government paid via treaty to the Shawnee tribe of Vinita Oklahoma for the land you live on

Haskell faculty, students call Washington Redskins poll results 'crazy'

False arguement put forth out of ignorance deliberately. Okla humma put forth by Choctaw Chairman Allen Wright after Sequoyah wasn't accepted as a territory name. Janette Kekahbah was correct in the origin of the term in question. Ignorant people use an offensive term and their descendants are clueless to the offensiveness. Go figure.

If an uninformed populace see hundreds of tribes as nothing more than a stereotypical mascots how are issues taken seriously? Short answer....they haven't been.

Native people have fought this mascot for four decades. The coach who coined the name faked his ancestry and stereotyped multiple indigenous nations wirh an emblem that's easy to digest for White historical consumption with no reality involved. Imagine if I was Armenian and a non Armenian group decided how I was portrayed without asking out of priviledge and denied that any atrocities ever happened and no one listened to my concerns and misrepresented me anyway? Ironic.

This country has a paternalist disconnect. Ignore individual ethnicities and call them whatever and don't take them seriously. Very American.

Prince, one of most inventive musicians of modern era, dies in home at age 57

My wife and I went to Minneapolis last October and we went to Prince's two childhood homes near downtown Minneapolis. We also saw First Avenue Club where Purple Rain was filmed. I remember hearing Prince on the radio in the inner city part of Shreveport where I lived in 1979. We sneaked into the Varsity Theatre in Aggieville for Purple Rain. Thanks for the memories Prince.

City Commission to decide on adopting Indigenous Peoples Day as annual celebration

Christopher Columbus is responsible for genocide and slavery against indigenous peoples in the Caribbean and North America. Being a post religious preachers kid of Choctaw descent I've learned about friars who followed the conquistadors into the pueblos and Father Juniper Serra who nearly wiped out California indigenous peoples with his missions. You name a denomination and I can cite atrocities. My minister parent went to Rome in 2004 and saw the Incan gold pilfered for the ceiling of the basilica. European religion dismantled indigenous culture and led to the disregard of indigenous religious values with the completion of the SLT through the Haskell wetlands. Enough already.
