Jesse Jackson Calls Florida an Apartheid State; Pechanga Reservation is Practicing Apartheid Jesse.

Jesse Jackson claimed today that Florida is an apartheid state. We know that is false, but Jesse should know that the Mark Macarro-led Pechanga Tribal Council is practicing APARTHEID on Indian people at the reservation in Temecula.  How can we compare what Pechanga is doing to their own families as something as despicable as what South Africa practiced against their black citizens?

APARTHEID as described by the dictionary is:
2. any system or practice that separates people according to race, caste, etc.

Pechanga is doing just that, determining that families with historical ties to the origins of the reservation are ‘no longer pure’ in their eyes. They may be Temecula Indian, but “they aren’t Pechanga.” Even though the expert hired BY Pechanga proved that we were.

Here are some similarities to the Apartheid system you are familiar with:

South Africa - Strategists in the National Party invented apartheid as a means to cement their control over the economic and social system.
Pechanga - Splinter Group invented disenrollment as a means to control membership during a time of new economic growth (Casino).

South Africa - Initially, aim of the apartheid was to maintain white domination while extending racial separation.
Pechanga - Initially, aim of the Splinter Group was to dominate the tribe while instilling fear in other members.

South Africa - Africans living in the homelands needed passports to enter South Africa: aliens in their own country.
Pechanga - Descendants of original allottees that have been disenrolled have to verify their reasons for entering their own land. An entire family of Tosabols have been denied access to use the roads to go to their property because of their banishment. Their crime? Nothing, they were never charged, just banished.

The reservation and allotments was set aside for the Temecula Band and village of Indians not just Pechanga, the self described subset, which includes people with NO Temecula Indian blood, much like the Boers of South Africa.

Pechanga now has a group living on the reservation that have:

• Lost the right to vote
• Lost their rights to healthcare provided by the tribal government.
• Their children can no longer attend tribal schools
• They can no longer be buried in the reservation cemetery with their relatives.
• Have no access to tribal health center
• Are not protected by the Tribal Rangers.

And now, the tribe is in the process of stealing the allottee's water rights,.

Tribal insider (sorry cant say who) speaks out about Pala's finances or lack of. They basically said Pala's BROKE! Chairman Smith and Treasurer Nieto will not show tribal funds or other accounts besides the casino profits which are provided at monthly meetings. This is because they cannot allow the tribe to see how much is in these accounts because the tribes reserve account is empty and they take money from these interest bearing accounts. Also the rumor about the EC taking out a loan for Christmas bonuses last year is true. The tribe didn't have the money to give the minimum bonus that's why they didn't let the people vote on the bonus like they have been. My response the current EC is running Pala into the ground soon there will be nothing left we'll end up like Chukchansi. We as the general membership need to stand up and ask more questions, demand answers, the EC works for us.

They need to send every crybaby "African" American ba k to Africa so the fest of this country doesn't have to listen to those niggers cry about changing laws they know nothing about. I am glad Zimmerman was found not guilty and the nigger president should be impeached for allowing race to be a more important factor than the truth. All those nights are doing is creating a race war again. This time ship them home and rid this country of some of the trash the worthless whites brought in.

Unfortunately the tribe won't realize or believe until we end up like Foxwoods or Chukchansi in debt unable to pay out bills. For some reason some tribal members most family of the EC continue to believe the EC's deceit and that it's just the disenrolled or other tribal members talking trash trying to turn people against them. I wish it was that simply because I do not want to see Pala fall apart because of a few greedy leaders. Yes Robert Smith has done a lot for Pala but somewhere along he has lost his way and is now destroying all we as a tribe have been fortunate to gain now and for our future and children's future. Robert could end this we all know he can do good and he has so he needs to stop the over spending and kick out Dickstien and the other NON-TRIBAL MEMBER partners who take a cut of everything. Robert helped Pala once and in the past couple years has been tearing it apart so he can once again be a leader we all once looked up too and "honestly" elected. Chairman Smith take back our tribe you have an obligation to us members ALL MEMBERS including the disenrolled. We can set an example to other tribes that are fighting and falling apart instead of being a part of it. Chairman Smith you owe nothing to these outside partners and lawyers. There is enough to go around if its done fairly without outside influence. MAKE PALA GREAT.
