Trump Administration Establishes the First Cold Case Task Force Office for Missing and Murdered American Indians and Alaska Natives

 #MMIW FINALLY gets some attention where the media has ignored the thousands of MISSING and MURDERED Indian Women and girls.

Today, U.S. Secretary of the Interior David L. Bernhardt, Senior Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump and Assistant Secretary - Indian Affairs Tara Katuk Sweeney established the first of seven offices dedicated to solving cold cases involving missing and murdered American Indians and Alaska Natives.




According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s National Crime Information Center, there are more than 1400 unresolved American Indian and Alaska Native missing person cases in the U.S. Of that, 136 cases are in Minnesota.
To address this crisis, President Trump signed Executive Order 13898 on November 26, 2019.

“President Trump created a task force to support Tribal communities, reduce the staggering number of violent crimes committed against American Indians and Alaska Natives and close out hundreds of cold cases,” said Secretary Bernhardt. “The Trump Administration is committed to justice and working alongside these Tribal communities to restore peace and prosperity.”
“While visiting the great state of Minnesota with Secretary Bernhardt, we are advancing two top priorities for the Administration: The Pledge to America’s Workers and supporting American Indian and Alaska Native communities,” said Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump. “We are furthering President Trump’s commitment to forgotten men and women across our country and the Administration’s efforts to ensure that all Americans can live with dignity and the promise of a brighter future.”

President Trump's Executive Order established the Operation Lady Justice Task Force, a multi-agency effort co-chaired by Secretary Bernhardt and U.S. Attorney General William P. Barr. Its purpose is to enhance the operation of the criminal justice system and address the staggering number of missing and murdered American Indian and Alaska Natives in Tribal communities.
“Today’s opening of the first Missing and Murdered Native Americans Cold Case office demonstrates the commitment of the Operation Lady Justice Task Force to achieving the mandate set out for it under President Trump’s executive order,” said Assistant Secretary – Indian Affairs Sweeney. “Cold cases in Indian Country will be addressed with determination and the understanding that the victims in these cases will be accorded some measure of dignity and compassion – not only for them, but for their survivors, as well.”
The Cold Case Task Forces are in accordance with the President’s Executive Order and will be staffed with law enforcement personnel and newly appointed special agents from the Bureau of Indian Affairs Office of Justice Services (BIA-OJS), along with personnel from other Operation Lady Justice Task Force partners including tribal law enforcement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Offices of the U.S. Attorneys.

A way for top federal officials to engage, coordinate and work with tribal governments on developing strategies to address the crisis, the Operation Lady Justice Task Force is working to collect and manage data across jurisdictions; establish protocols for new and unsolved cases; establish multi-jurisdictional cold case teams; improve the response to investigative challenges; and provide clarity on the roles, authorities and jurisdiction for those involved.  It is also charged with providing a report to the President of its work and accomplishments in meeting the executive order’s mandate.
Since 2019, the Department of the Interior and Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) have undertaken a number of efforts to address the crisis, conducting criminal investigations, stopping illicit drug activity and solving missing and murdered cases.
The BIA-OJS and its partners have opened 200 percent more drug cases across Indian Country than in the last year of the Obama Administration, and their tribal law enforcement officers have seized approximately 6,000 pounds of narcotics worth $30 million in the past two years. Preventing further violence against American Indians and Alaska Natives is largely predicated on ending illicit drug activities and sex trafficking.
The BIA-OJS's partnership with the Department of Justice’s Missing and Unidentified Persons System, known as NamUs, has led to the development and implementation of new Tribal-affiliation data fields to assist law enforcement with capturing information to track missing and murdered persons in Indian Country. Since the addition of these new data fields last year, there has been a 60 percent increase in Native-person entries into the system.
Today’s opening will be followed by Cold Case Task Force office openings in the following cities:
  • Rapid City, SD (August 4);
  • Billings, MT (August 6);
  • Nashville, TN (August 12);
  • Albuquerque, NM (August 18);
  • Phoenix, AZ (August 20); and
  • Anchorage, AK (August 27).

Thank you President TRUMP this has been long over due. Too many Native Americans have been missing or killed without further investigations. May GOD Bless One and All.

It is sad that the present POTUS has to do what should have been done many years ago. I guess the adage "better late than never" sort of applies here. Thank you President Trump and Thank you Ivanka.

While you are at it, Mr. President is there anything that can be done regarding the Organized criminal activity going on where Tribal Authorities dis enroll, or kick out with little or no proof Native Peoples from the Res to only increase the amount of money they can put in their wallet? The President of the Pechanga Tribe kicked out a family that is more Pechanga that any other Member, while its President Mark Macarro has some Filipeno blood? It's not right.

I just want to Say that in his short time as president he has really tried to to things never done before by any president. This while bucking opposition at ever turn. I really want to see how he would do if in another term. President Trump is being blamed for the Portland riots. He offered to send in troops if requested. They said no troops. Still his fault of the destruction. I so hope this works. He wont play ball and truly wants what's best for his,our,my country.

So Trump puts together a COLD CASE task force. What about the hot cases that happen every day? What about the Federal seizing of lands like in SD? What about enforcement of Treaties?? Is he going to help protect the living women? Is he going to do anything really since he is probably not going to be reelected anyway? A stunt and a boondoggle for leaders.

President Trump signed this in november of 2019. If the liberals in DC would give him a chance , I think he could get more done. He hasn't had a lot of help since elected. Some of Indian nation representatives have been in DC for years and you want to blame the President?

I will believe it when I see it. Trump sure as heck doesn't care about brown people from abroad or the migrant workers who work tirelessly to bring food to our grocery stores and tables. After all, he refers to their countries as being "shit hole" countries. So, I find it hard to believe any of this.

That crossed my mind but I reflected back on the last 3 & 1/2 years. Nah! It's really a wonder he got much of anything done while holding on through the coop, the 27 attempts on his life, and the mega the drama of CV19. A person can only do so much. Actually, in politics, it's like a constant campaign stunt for 4 years. I hope that Native American women and children will soon be free from this fear and will continue to walk tall in beauty.

It's a good pre-election soundbite, and I was willing to give Trump credit for it - until I looked further and found that Minnesota already had established a state Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls task force last year, and that they were not even consulted or considered. Ivanka's new photo op is apparently just another case of the Trump administration sending in the feds where they are not wanted.

-------------------

[Dozens of protesters gathered outside of the new office, waving an American Indian Movement flag and carrying signs that read “Trusting Trump = Death” and “No More Stolen Sisters.” State Rep. Mary Kunesh-Podein, who is of Standing Rock Lakota descent, joined protesters outside the new office.

“Our women are not photo opportunities,” she told protesters. “Our women are not for show.”

Minnesota lawmakers established a state Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls task force last year of elected officials, law enforcement and tribal representatives to make recommendations for the Legislature. Minnesota Democrats said Monday the creation of the federal office is politically motivated and disingenuous, citing an attempt by the Trump administration to deny tribal nations COVID-19 relief funding.

Kunesh-Podein, a co-chair and author of the bill that established the state task force, said the Trump administration didn’t reach out to the task force or other Native American state officials before the visit Monday, and that she only learned of the cold case office after it was announced. The new office evokes “historic trauma” carried by Indigenous peoples of the federal government “setting things up and putting things in order for the good of the Indian people without taking into consideration their viewpoints, their wants and their needs,” she said.

“It sort of has the feeling of a pop-up department from the federal government, and without knowing exactly what it is about, it just feels very inauthentic,” she said.

Ivanka Trump did not take questions at the office opening.]

Anonymous said...

I will believe it when I see it. The FBI does get involved in many cases, and local police depts too. My father in law was a homicide detective, and after retirement, he and other retired law enforcement met every week to go over the cold cases they were working on. He trained many of the personnel at the Warm Springs Reservation one summer (don't know what kind of training, but likely homicide investigation). Trump is three months aaway from the end of his term and is only now saying he'll make a task force. I hope it works better than his Covid Task Force.

Unknown said...

Cried, I hear you. Yes he has fooled a lot of people. I’m sad that so many just drink up what he pours out. I used to be a republican but am upset to see the mentality and hate they spew out. They say that the Democrats have so much hate but they need to look in the mirror. It’s coming from both sides equally. I am independent and look at it all objectively. There are things on both sides that I agree on and both sides that I don’t agree on. I tend to take an issue and look at it through the eyes of Jesus. It really makes things crystal clear for me. I’m sorry you lost loved ones to covid. It should not have happened. Trump handled it very poorly and that was obvious to see from day one. What comes out of his mouth literally floors me and these whole four years have been all about him and not taking care of matters. His followers like to blame anything bad as left over from Obama. So much of that just not true. The most accurate sound bites are coming from the “Lincoln Project” which are made up of sound Republicans who are strong enough to stand up and call him out. Satan wants to divide this country and he is doing a great job of it. I come from a close family and just because I don’t join in the conversations bashing Democrats or supporting Trump, I sense their distancing themselves from me. It’s really sad. I love them no matter what but seems they are letting politics trump family love. We are told that there will come a time when families will be divided over issues. I never dreamed that would be our family. I respect their personal opinions but it makes me sad that I see so much disdain for other Americans, especially the many down trodden citizens or people trying to find hope in our country. A president should not be such a dividing factor but one who reaches out to all. A divided country can not stand. Do some research and find that if we continue down this path our country will fall within 40 years and be thrown into a modern dark ages. I pray for our children and grand children but mostly I pray that Jesus will say enough and return to bring His kingdom to earth. And it will be soon. But Trump will not be able to save a soul. Jesus is our only hope. Satan has all the Christians wrapped up with their agenda to win as Republicans, when they should be wrapped up in Christ trying to spread His great love and His great news. They should be feeding the poor and loving the down trodden. Making sure everyone has health care... that’s what Christ would be doing. Yes everything is backwards these days and upside down. From morals to our focus and goals. This country is headed for another civil war, or are we already in it? There are good and bad people and issues on both sides. We should all be Independent thinkers and stand back, take a breath and look at the big picture. Look at issues through the eyes of Jesus and filter it all through how He taught us to live. No one and nothing is perfect this side of heaven but as long as we are here, we need to do everything we can to relate to others situation and unite instead of divide. Otherwise it is just a matter of time and this country will be in complete ruin. The world is watching. I would not be surprised if there are bets being made on when that happens. Meanwhile we are our own worst enemy. God help us.

Creid, I would respect your opinions more if you spoke truth. There is power to truth - not even A.I.M. could deny it.

If you are Diné then you definitely heard about what happened to an 11yr old girl who was brutally killed in 2016 near Shiprock,NM and dumped. If it were not for her little brother's mental fortitude and awareness for details when he was let go and walked to a road and flagged down help, her body never would have been found.

I remember it was around 2:30am when I recieved an Amber Alert on my phone. For that amber alert to be issued tribal police had to contact the NM state police for help since the Navajo Police never had an alert system in place. Besides just alerting the community, the tribal police asked New Mexico for additional search and rescue resources including a chopper. It was a whole interagency search to find her killer. Her body was spotted by chopper less than 24hrs after being kidnapped, and her killer arrested in less than 48hrs. The thing is she lived 2 minutes away from where I lived, her death shook me to my core. She never deserved this, nor does any native girl/woman. Those who have been murdered and never found deserve to be found. The murderers who have never been caught deserve to be caught. If this task force helps puts criminals behind bars and gives closure to the many families waiting for answers then why wouldn't you support this effort? This is not about who Trump is (you might not like him), it is about what he has done by signing this executive order - because when Native American women die so does the future of Native American culture, for who will bring into the world new generations when it women are dead?
That is truth.

The taskforce trump authorized is from 2019 not just recently. No matter who does something good it should be appreciated. Something has needed to be done for years but wasn't. With these cases sometimes going through multiple jurisdictions and over state lines federal involvement is good. Predators know lines they can cross and not be caught. Women on reservations are at risk because it's secluded and if they take them off the reservation
And across state lines nobody is looking for them in that area

For many years we've had presidents that look at other countries that are their own people wrong and so they send troops over to take care of whatever crisis is going on and we the people have complained about the fact that we need to worry about our own country. People starving, homeless ect... Now Trump yes he has to take care of foreign policies and keep us in control of that sort of stuff. And now we are in crisis and Trump is trying to handle the best way he can. No not everyone is going to be pleased on how he's doing it. But if anyone can come up with a plan on how to handle this and do it so that everyone one is pleased then try to help the situation not destroy what this country is about. We are about freedom for all. I have seen so much selfishness that I am ashamed of the anarchists that seem to think they can ruin this country and it's greatness. Maybe these people need to go see what it is like in other countries and wake up to see how great it is here. Like I said if you have a better plan share it. And make sure that this plan is for the all the people.
How can this president fix the problem when he is trying and our own people are fighting him every stepof the way. No I don't agree with all the stuff he has done in his past but he is getting stuff done for America that has been pushed back for years. I love America let it be free again.

I do have native ancestors, but nothing that I actively claim and I do not belong to any tribes, although I was born and raised in Anchorage Alaska so native issues have been a part of my life forever.

Wasn't David Karesh murdered, along with most of his followers, by the Clinton administration?

LaVictoria said...

Did anyone bother to ask a native?

LaVictoria said...

Ask the states if they actually feel protected by this new information. I've heard bad things about the treatment of many natives that continue since the day William Brewster so that is a lot of cultural debt to make up for.

LaVictoria said...

When I hear Americans talk about Native issues it makes me physically ill.

LaVictoria said...

Dear America get better life models. If Trump is what I am supposed to be grateful for think again. His argument about free press and false news is correct. America voted. I didn't. He's literally not my president because I don't recognize his governmental authorization as an authority on anything American

LaVictoria said...

If you believe in God, what is God's actual name?

LaVictoria said...

You forget that Hawaiian religious freedom is being violated by the United States Governmental Authorization so people can look at stars. Literally look at stars. Until all natives are honored, none are.

LaVictoria said...

Am I seriously supposed to honor a man in charge of a country responsible for murder. When I see Andrew Jackson on money it reminds me of all my dead family. Thanks Trump? How about no thanks to being treated as less than human. I watch Trump violate everything America supposedly stands for. And Trump has the nerve to ask me for support. I'm glad he doesn't own Miss USA. Maybe now a Real Native can win a competition about beauty being more than skin deep. Thank you Miss Oklahoma for showing True Values in these days. Any God knows what true beauty is. Does my God love you? I honestly don't know the answer for any of you but I can make very specific guesses. For instance the state owner of the Lakota branch of the native discussion doesn't know how to govern her people.
That state is named Mount Rushmore to many Americans. My name for it is White Dead People.

LaVictoria said...

Try exactly as old as the United States Constitution

LaVictoria said...

Try too little too late

LaVictoria said...

It's sad it took a spray tan to make America think it's great again. You can spray on all the tan you want. He is a White Man and Ivanka is a White Woman. I do not know them therefore they do not know me. His approval rating for me goes down every time a white mouth speaks. Because they tell me to Respect Him. Why would I respect any institution based on the infringement of universal rights. I thank Jesus for dying and I honor that sacrifice yearly as weree his express wishes. I honor the president by allowing him to call himself the man who will make things better. I'm still wondering if a police officer will shoot me before asking questions. Stop the death before you tell me about life. Stop pretending anyone actually believes you represent Native Opinions. You all represent what happens when we allowed the first white man to step foot on American Values. We let immigration begin. I'm wondering when I can deport all of you personally.

LaVictoria said...

I respect the seasons of Religious Holidays. Pagan Holidays. I respect your right to exist. I respect your right to have "Free Speech". I think it's ironic you think it's Free. America is my birth country and I think about Escaping America. My childhood game was Cowboys and Indians. All White Americans are Cowboys. I made sure I hid from All of you. Trump Administration built 4 years of government office. I'd like the American Government to be an institution that is dissolved forever. After all, Andrew Jackson murdered thousands of my family members. Now I listen to a White Administration Pretend it's showing Christian Values. I don't think you know very much about Jesus if this is the example you are setting for eligible applicants of the race for Presidency. The fact you think politics will fix what politics broke doesn't make me laugh anymore like it did the first time Trump threatened to run for President. I'm a woman and I find his existence as President to be offensive. His very existence. He claims he's making America Better. America has never looked so bad at doing anything in life. It can't even protect the religious freedoms of any of it's citizens because the government thinks it Has citizens. Anyone on the United States political forefront would be able to tell you that Trump is only an Administration that will rise and fall just like every other Governmental Authorization in the history of human kind has failed. America failed at being a home for the Free and the Brave. America forgot that without us, there would be no America. If the president deserves the honor of being the president that makes America "Great" again he can stop congratulating himself on being so "great". I watched the electoral college election where Trump won. That doesn't mean I recognize him as an American.

LaVictoria said...

I pray he retires before he is dead so I don't have to keep listening to this.

LaVictoria said...

Every time Trump disrespects a female he disrespects me by proxy. There has never been a better joke in America than the fact that Trump is the best president ever.

LaVictoria said...

What makes you think you qualify as Christian?

LaVictoria said...

Make sure that the source is trustworthy. Otherwise you just have more Native DNA in American hands.

LaVictoria said...

Ivanka needs more help than you do.

LaVictoria said...

The fact that people think we will forget our entire heritage with White Men in office... Wow. It's mind-blowing that this is Christian. Governmental Authority is only as old as the Constitution. Which was written by physically hot, stressed, angry and abusive Men. As a woman I pretend this country represents my values when it elects politicians. I pretend there is a President. I pretend that it's worth it's existence as a social station. It's a social apocalypse. I watched Obama give a speech as President and Trump was not in Attendance. Hawaiian president. I watched America pretend it has Birth Certificates. I watched Trump say "Not My President". I'm not afraid to say it back. He disrespected what melanin and Hawaii were meant to do in the past Administration. He disrespected the President. He didn't show up to pay his own Respect. Meanwhile I'm watching the speech in 2020 being bombarded with Ads asking what I think of Trump. Maybe you shouldn't have asked.

LaVictoria said...

Hard to claim his offences are forgivable. His recent signatures recognize that he is ruled by the Supreme Court where at least there you can find a female. I haven't had the pleasure of watching a"Christian" woman be a President. Oh wait, America has exactly Zero Female Presidents. But what more would I expect from a Man Made institution.

LaVictoria said...

This is the part where Americans say Thank You Trump. This is the part where I say it's not good enough.

LaVictoria said...

Whom indeed

LaVictoria said...

I told an American I prayed for the president. He asked me why I was so foolish. I asked myself why. Because Jesus set the example. Jesus left the Judging up to an actual God. I let America write it's own death certificates

LaVictoria said...

What part of No don't you understand?

LaVictoria said...

Why tell an Indian anything right?

LaVictoria said...

I'm surprised to learn it was only 27

LaVictoria said...

I'm afraid to walk By Trump because of an innumerable list of reasons. Item number one on why I do not support Trump. Russia. Russia is the land where all freedom goes to die. That's who Trump is friends with. They, the Russians this very moment are suffocating universal rights to religious beliefs. America thinks it's great but it stinks to the heavens

LaVictoria said...

Are you one of them?

LaVictoria said...

You are embarrassing yourself by saying that.

LaVictoria said...

LaVictoria said...

At least we got a Black Eagle. I've been supremely disappointed that this is the America Osama built. At least Obama found Him. I had to wait 10 years for someone else to give him the death he "deserved". I watched him get murdered instead of asking why he did it at all. Now I have to look at all the ghosts left behind by 911. Because I know Exactly where I was that day. Do you?

LaVictoria said...

Children in cages is another way to say Unlawful Detainment. The minute Trump said he would build a wall to block out Mexico. This is only his latest attempt at ethnic cleansing.

LaVictoria said...

I am wondering when humans will realize that they are literally creating sinkholes under all of the Earth by draining it of Fossil Fuels. The dinosaurs died for the Earth, not your above ground abuse. The fuel industry is the second worst polluter of air. The Worst polluters are the people that own businesses and influence social attention in Toxic directions. 4 years of his Administration won't brainwash me into thinking he cares. I have his entire life canvas to examine. Hated his attitude towards people since the time he started his Reality Show. I literally laughed every time people said he would be president. Until I woke up the day of the election. But this time I wasn't surprised he was President. I was surprised people didn't see it coming sooner. Jesus specifically tells Peter to forgive a man 77 times before judgement. How long will this man take to realize Women and Children Literally Hate His Existence.

LaVictoria said...

You haven't heard the Choctaw Perspective

I literally trust Mexicans before Trump. Literally. That's how bad he is

You need to wake up to how Bad it is here

LaVictoria said...

This hasn't been pushed back for years. It's been pushed back all the way to the original Declaration of Independence from British Governmental Authority. I'm petitioning for the Abolition of White Authority. Stop telling Indians to trust Trump. We have never been more in danger. America stop trying to lose your natives. Stop trusting anything White.

LaVictoria said...

Then what's the name?

Why do you say probably when you mean definitely

LaVictoria said...

Machine48 you sound outdated. I do indeed Blame the President for every White Sin since the birth of America. Get your facts straightened.

LaVictoria said...

Creid it's time I addressed you. If you are indeed Navajo you represent that belief system. People think Creid is the only representative of Hate in Indians. You obviously haven't met me yet. I'm not Navajo after all by blood right. That I have discovered in my ancestors so far. You never know, I might be Navajo after all.

LaVictoria said...

Save yourself before you trust a white man

LaVictoria said...

Anonymous maybe you don't know what Nazis are

LaVictoria said...

To Anonymous that said Creid doesn't represent Real Natives. You obviously don't support Natives

LaVictoria said...

To unknown that claims Trump deserves respect from Natives: Yes this President is Trying. But what is he actually fostering for the future? I've never felt so disrespected in my life than when America chose Trump. Wow. That's the best you could find? And now you want more? How long will it take before you say No Means No. No to Trump. No to White Authority. No to False Christianity. No to America. It's too late to pretend we are Good. When I travel to other countries I love them more than American Anything. That includes politics.

LaVictoria said...

Why do you keep thinking Trump is the answer when he's only a mouthpiece. When he gets loose from being President we will see how "tolerant" he is. And we will see how tolerant I am of Natives that think he is helpful and Christian. If he has God's Backing it's because of his Celebrity Status. Don't pretend that you get Mana from Heaven and Trump from Jesus. Jesus at 33 was perfect. Trump wishes he has a future in America. If this election takes place why on Earth or in the Universe would I want more of the same message his family has been promoting since their infancy. That They are Better Than Us. He may be president but that doesn't justify unjustifiable actions.

LaVictoria said...

I'd like to see if the old man can even live four more years let alone win an election. He's almost 100. You only have to be 35 to be president. Why would Jesus support his family's brand? Archangel Michael will have explaining to do if he is the "good Christian". Jesus can own his soul. I don't have to respect a Caesar that doesn't exist. Pay Caesars things to Caesar. That's what Jesus Taught. Trump can not find the honesty within himself to realize the more love he gathers for himself the more I wish he was dead of old age before he won an election. He wants the"job" of keeping America Safe. Safe is the biggest lie that has ever been told. We are surrounded by demons and you think they don't have an impact on human resources. One of those impacts is that I thought Bush was Bad. And then I had to meet Trump. Worse and worse. Any benefits that I received during this Administration is just that. An Administration. His love language is not very loving. If he instills this much hatred currying favor... We will see how my future turns out with or without him for the next president. Please Retire Trump. I don't want 5 minutes with your presence let alone have your government be in charge of My Future. I'm the future you created. I'm a life force despite you, not because of you. You don't deserve any credit for bringing harmony to anyone because your presidency has been the worst in Living Memory. I met Bill Clinton as a Child and I still like him better than Trump. Still. I get to hear new awful things about that old man. His worst offence to America was committing Adultery. Do you want to know how many people have committed Adultery? Because Bill is still my favorite living President

LaVictoria said...

I'm not praying for Trump I'm praying for you

LaVictoria said...

To Tired of this crap: So am I. I'm tired of pretending to respect his ideology. Every time a "friend" supports Trump it's a slap in the face. I truly at a core level call into question anyone that thinks his ideology is Good. Every single person that supports Trump Offends Me

LaVictoria said...

To Machine48 do you drink the water the Natives have to? Until you have a full glass of Native Water Rights from United States Land. I propose a new treaty. If the poisoned water is good enough for a Native to drink, then I'm definitely going to ask for the President to drink the exact drinking water Natives are forced to tolerate. You poisoned it. You all murdered the future by saying Trump is Best. Whatever future I had before election day was determined is gone. I live in a present day Trump Administration. Do you remember where the poisoned water is? Make sure the politicians drink that fresh from the source so that they may begin to begin to understand the forever Impact of the last election

LaVictoria said...

LaVictoria said...

Thank you to your family for the helpful supervision.

K said...

LaVictoria, all I can say is you have so much hate for white people but you say you are Christian. I'm so sorry you have so much hate - sounds like it's been passed down from your family for a long time. Like you all want us to leave. We have nothing to do with what happened when the "white man" first came to America. So stop blaming us and you are just as racist as the KKK...yep, there's racism against whites too.

WTF does your hatred have to do with the President authorizing law enforcement to help in the search for murdered and missing women? I say God bless him! Has any other President done that? I say thank you Mr. President

Mrs. Ray said...

LaVictoria, you do realize you are super duper racist, right? You say stuff like "1 white at a time". Racist. You make claims about the President that are not true and can't be backed up. Please tell me what he's done that's racist. Please show me how when something is done to a woman, any woman, it is then done to you? Maybe deflate your head a little, do your own research on the claims you've made, and tell me how the fu@k all white people are racist? Get over yourself lady. If there are changes that need to be made in your community, be the 1 to make that change. Run to be some kind of official or for some kind of office. Take care of the land and people in your reservation. Don't assume the worst in people (all white people) you don't know. Judge others by the content of their ❤, not by the color of their skin. "Be the change you want to see in the world".
