    Wait a minute. Aren't you stealing BLM limelight? The virus is targeting the black community not you. If you don't watch it the BLM will start "protesting" on your native land. Please take care of them for us since our government won't do crap.

    “the Indians” were for sure “disease free” until “the White Man deliberately threw it on them” ???

    Been there every year for a month the last 30 years for a research project at Chaco. Lived there for 3 years.

    This story is such bullshit and those two women on the couch are LYING.

    If someone at the store was disrespectful it was likely a Latino not a white. The store they are talking about is a CHAIN GROCERY STORE so there goes the we only got c-stores lie.

    All the horrible tales of poverty can be laid at the feet of drugs and alcohol.

    Give me a basic monthly income (TERO) and I can assure you I wouldn't live like that.

    Gallup is like any other small town. Don't fall for this muh racisms crap.

    That’s what happens when you run your communities like communists. The elders get all the money and distribute it as they see fit.

    Clean the air with a fan & air filter in your 🏡, buildings & restaurants. I do clean the air in my home. This helps from catching corona virus. Look at my video.

    I dont know where everyone stands in terms of this pandemic, but you cannot blame Trump for the US covid deaths and call him a mass murderer for it.

    Indigenous to where? They migrated via a land bridge from Asia long, long ago. We're all native to Africa. There is one race. The human race. If the reservation is that bad… leave. This isn't a fascist or communist country. You're free.

    It’s a Democrat run state. Blue has forgotten them and taken their votes for granted. The racism from the left against native Americans is disgraceful.
