Cherokees To Blacks: Drop Dead

By Wyatt Earp | September 14, 2011

The Cherokee Nation is cleaning house, and if they have their way, African-Americans will be shown the door. Apparently, they didn’t appreciate the fact that freed slaves received tribal citizenship after the Civil War.

It only took them 146 years to complain. Well played, guys.

The nation’s second-largest Indian tribe said on Tuesday that it would not be dictated to by the U.S. government over its move to banish 2,800 African Americans from its citizenship rolls.

“The Cherokee Nation will not be governed by the BIA,” Joe Crittenden, the tribe’s acting principal chief, said in a statement responding to the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs.

The reaction follows a letter the tribe received on Monday from BIA Assistant Secretary Larry Echo Hawk, who warned that the results of the September 24 Cherokee election for principal chief will not be recognized by the U.S. government if the ousted members, known to some as “Cherokee Freedmen,” are not allowed to vote. (H/TC/A)

This move also assures that Freedmen will not be eligible for tribal benefits. What those are, exactly, is anyone’s guess.

    Actually, these are the descendents of the slaves OWNED by the Cherokee. Now that is irony!

    Be safe (and remember, it was not just whitey!).

    In over 100 years the Indians finally break a treaty with us:) Who would ever have thought.

    Maybe they could do a Ghost Dance so the white mans bullets pass right thru them. It worked the last time, our bullets passed right thru them alrighty. (I know its an Apache dance but maybe the Cherokee have a Ghost Waltz?)

    Snarkasm aside, they are a soverign nation after all not covered by the Constitution (unless they want to be, or not). Do they have other laws like, blacks ride on the ‘back’ of the horse? Do they have drive by ‘arrowings’? Do any belong to the Nation of Islam?
    I defintely would have trouble wrapping my mind around the thought of a black, Cherokee mooselim screaming…
    Great Spirit Akbar!!!

    My God, have I finally lost it? LOL

    LDIV – Them, and everyone else, it seems.

    Swarner – Oh that’s just lovely.

    Robert B. – Are there any Native American rappers?

    Proof – Maybe arrow futures . . .

    Metoo – Well played, ma’am!

    Captain – “Well why not, it’s free labor.” – Sterling Archer

    Jon – I think you need to rest a bit. Your brain is overheating.

    Rodney – And if not, who’s gonna call him on it? he’ll just revoke their citizenship, too.
