Congratulations 12 Years a Slave! It may take Hollywood to get us to acknowledge what America has denied for over 200 years. #TheOscars2014Was it her ebullience at the film winning that led her to send the tweet, which is wrong on so many fronts, ignoring the impact of her party, the Democrats trying to keep slavery as an institution? No sane person has denied slavery. But she also forgets that she SUPPORTS an Apartheid Reservation and accepts accepts money from the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indian, which has that practice on their reservation in Temecula. They have violated civil and human rights of their people.
