Sgt. Thomas McVicar of the Jersey City Police Department shot 22 year old Kwadir Felton, leaving him blind, after Kwadir pulled a gun on him, he claims. Kwadir Felton denied the accusation, stating that he doesn’t even carry guns.

"I don’t understand!" Felton yelled at a police officer before his mother was removed from the courtroom. "You didn’t have to shoot me in the head for no reason! You trying to charge me with something I didn’t do!"

foreignxchangee said: I didn’t mean it in a racist way at all…it is out of pure curiosity. Because where I am from it is not very diverse or open to many races. To me, it would be awesome to meet someone of native blood. I am part navajo

The thing is, Native people all look different. It is an inappropriate question to ask, especially when you added in the ‘true Native American’ bit. What is a ‘true Native American’? Regardless of our appearances, we are all ‘true’.

"The Map Of Native American Tribes You’ve Never Seen Before"

Amazing work. Kudos to Aaron for not only undertaking the research to reconstruct the original lands of different tribes and original names of all these tribes. 

Look at a map of Native American territory today, and you’ll see tiny islands of reservation and trust land engulfed by acres upon acres ceded by treaty or taken by force. Carapella’s maps serve as a reminder that the population of the American countryside stretches back long before 1776 and 1492.”

Q
there was this survey where these people go around asking questions. The topic they chose was what group is not widely represented in the media and this one white guy had the nerve to say "white straight males" I can't deal with this shit

Slam dunk him into the trash. White straight males have enough representation to last them a life time. - mod M


Q
Specifically, how do true native Americans look? In description...I have yet to meet one in person:/

There’s no specific way for a Native person to look.
