How ignorant do you have to be not to know this stuff? Look, I'm white as wonderbread but my wife and daughter(as I've mentioned before) have color due to their native hertiage. We looked into American Indian rights, thats how I know how that works. As for the 1/8th black thing, yeah dude they had a think on the history channel about segregation in the south and how 1/8th black kids got sent home called "n-word" by their teacher and classmates untill a court ruling said that "octo's" could be legally considered white and go to southern schools. If your too ignorant to believe that there was segregation and that it called itself "sepreate but equal" then phuck you too. Being offended dosnt change history.


I know that to get Native rights the tribes make you take a DNA test, but for schools I think multi racial people can pick either box they want. Remember untill just a few decades ago 1/8 black was black for legal reasons with the "seperate but equal" system. You are twice that much of your seond race. I'd say if you look dark with high cheek bones and thick hair you'll not get messed with too much. Just dont be one of those guys who's whitter than bleached paper and bragging about his nonwhite heritage. I see people doing that, it pisses everyone off.(especially if you do it on a casino) I am pretty sure that its your choice though since I have known mixed race people who mark either or as they chose.

You have absolutely no f*cking clue as to what you're talking about.  Please, STOP providing false and misleading information.  Just STOP.  You're becoming a menace.

Hilarious. WTF does "have color" mean? And "looking into" Native rights is no substitute for living and doing it every single day.

Yeah MBW, stop denying that people of color were treated unfairly in the past!

Well he's had it in for me ever since I kinda ran over his dog... Well, replace the word "kinda" with "repeatedly" and the word "dog" with "son."

How am I denying that a-hole? They called it "seperate but equal" thats what they called it. It dosnt mean they weren't dicks, but thats what they called it.

You are 100% wrong.  Not a single US tribe uses DNA for determining citizenship.  A number of tribes use BQ, others use mere lineage, but there is no single criterion for all 500+ tribes.  Tribes determine their membership.  HOWEVER, only a few schools ask for membership status, and some others ask for "association", as there are high BQ NDNs who are not "enrolled" (some have been "disenrolled" due to tribal politics, see Pechanga.)

As I said, please STOP spreading misinformation, or actually point to a tribe/nation which uses DNA for citizenship purposes.

Note:  please, think about it logically - DNA testing is not specific enough to distinguish tribal identity.  And just because one may have alleles and the like which point to a 12K break with Asian populations does not indicate whether one is a Cherokee or an Abenaki.
I'm in a lynch mob?  I had no idea.  This is really worrying; I really don't have time for another extra-curricular activity.

I'm waiting patiently for JD2013's appeal to authority by claiming his great-grandmother was a Cherokee princess.

If he does that I'll personally kick his ass.

Hey, the PS's great-grandmother was a Cherokee... er, oh, well, just a Cherokee.  :-\

ETA:  Btw, Tsalagi, was the name on the Dawes Roll of your ancestor(s) the same as your current surname?  Ironically, the PS's ancestors had MY surname. ;).

Yes. My great-grandfather. Didn't speak a word of English until he was over 20 years old, but was apparently 1/16.  ???
