    this creates a few interesting questions...

    1. why should I be blamed for attrocities that I never committed?

    2. since I am part native american can I get benefits?

    3. as a mutt, I would like to know where I'd get sent back to if we get kicked out of North America... please don't say I'm going to get sliced and diced and sent to ALL of the countries of my ancestors!

    4. the ability to open casinos, use drugs, sell cheap gasoline and go to college for free is pretty awesome

    You people are drawing some pretty ridiculous parallels here. The changes in Europe's geopolitical map due to wars and various treaties over time are hardly comparable to the situation described in the video, where a treaty is being broken and the victims of it are forced to live in unacceptable conditions. Now separating the area from the US would solve nothing, but it seems quite obvious to me that the government should be obliged to fix the situation, by providing the people land, resources and aid.

    were it not for our atrocious history, ye would not exist.

    this is a cop out of course. But since we're on a clean slate now, it's best if no one slaughters any more in'juns

    It's too easy to point the finger at other countries. And speaking of, I hope the Finnish government has made reparations to the 82,000 "Red" Finns captured and then slaughtered in captivity during the Finnish Civil War. It's been less than 100 years.

    IMO, historical reparation is ridiculous.

    This is what I was thinking too. I'm unconvinced that giving the Lakota (or Native Americans in general) their own nation would help them economically. It seems like that it would just make it harder for people to get to the casinos.

    I think it's about time that Europe finally ponied up and gave the Gypsies their own lands for a nation.

    wtf? first of all, europe is not a country. and gypsies never had their own land that was stolen from them, they just habit other peoples countries and live off their welfare..
