The Congressional Black Caucus has the opportunity to stand up for those who REALLY are the subjects of racism, the Cherokee Freedmen, descendents of the slaves who were owned by the Cherokee. What do they do instead? They make fools of themselves trying to cast the Tea Party as racists who want Blacks swing from trees.
Stand UP FOR those who REALLY have had their civil rights violated. Not just the Cherokee Freedmen, but those Native Americans who have been disenfranchised by their tribes. Get to the REAL job of defending our civil rights, not a manufactured LIE.
Look into those tribes that practice APARTHEID here in California, CBC and quit being ignorant and vile.
Gov. Jerry Brown, who has taken nearly $1 MILLION from gaming tribes, has signed a gambling compact with a Mendocino County Indian tribe allowing it to build a casino with 900 slot machines.
The governor's office announced the agreement Monday with the Pinoleville Pomo Nation for a casino near Ukiah, about 120 miles north of San Francisco.
It says that up to 15 percent of the casino's net earnings will be used for the community and on programs designed to address gambling addiction.
The agreement also includes steps the tribe must take to protect the environment during construction. A message left with the tribe at its office in Ukiah was not immediately returned.
