      Agreed. I mean, who cares? As long as the racist buttheads (white people OR others–racism isn’t just white against etc) can keep their mouths shut, it doesn’t matter.

      The comic does NOT make the distinction, but the statistic would only be of interest for the use of the term referring to the country. “America” can mean the USA, or some combination of the continents of the “New World”, aka the largest non-Eurasian, non-African landmasses, or the land west of the Atlantic Ocean and east of the Pacific Oceans.

      Actually, second. Even if it wasn’t organized America, the people that lived within the later imposed borders that make up America today before European settlement were…

    Those two in the picture will only be non-white until they have to use a weapon in self defense. Then they’ll be “White Native Americans.”

      LOL, PJ! I’m loving the dry humor. I also am wondering if you realize that hispanics can be black, white, indian or any combination of the groups. Just saying.

    Way to keep racism alive. On a related note, has anyone else noticed how our news media seem more racist than any other group in America?

  3. Chazzz says:

    It seems to me that the main point being made here is not specifically about race, but more about how an entire set of communities (ie Native Americans) are often ignored in American history.
    The statement by the radio broadcaster falls squarely into the “if you want to keep racism alive, talk about race” category, which is obviously a very widespread problem. The old man makes a very valid, significant point – a point about historical shortsightedness and disrespect.

  4. Ashley says:

    Racism will not end by not talking about race. We need to embrace cultural differences and be able to talk freely about them in order to make progress. Just love one another, we are all people!

    were same on the inside just not on the outside it should not matter what color u are so i dont care if ur purple green pink yellow orange or any other color we are we r all the same

    1. Matthew says:

      That’s a wonderful point you’ve made!
      Now, we can focus our energy instead on grammar lessons for today’s Internet denizens!

    Actually, if they’re referring to the country, and not the landmass, then the reporter was correct. If they’re referring to the continent, then the old Indian was correct.
