Not saying this is you KK or any person on the huddle.
but the amount of white people I know that actually resent minority groups for being oppressed is mind boggling to me..
Something tragic can happen in a certain community and instead of caring about the life loss they're upset at the media for treating an historically oppressed group....like an historically oppressed group.
This isn't to say the media is innocent of fanning the flames they're not but one of the main reasons why you wont see massive protest in the white community is because white people are more trusting of authority (of course i am speaking in generals here) when something goes wrong its been my experience that my white friends trust the American judicial system to do something about it.
Black people on the other hand are raised to not trust authority, we're raised believing the police are not on our side therefore we have little to no trust in the justice system which is why you get the reaction you do in Ferguson. it takes generation after generation to build up that kind of resentment.
I don't think it's that big of deal if the name is changed.
The only thing I do wonder is how many actual Native Americans are offended by the term? I have read multiple polls all with conflicting results and as a minority myself I know how easy it is for a few voices in the community to decide something offends them and it quickly becomes "we're all offended by this".
I've lost count on how many times I've seen Jesse Jackson or al Sharpton speak on something they say is offending the black community when they're really speaking for themselves because most of us weren't all that offended to begin with.
I'm not saying that's what going on with Native Americans just that I would like to see how more every day people feel instead of politicians, organizations and white people overflowing with white guilt.
Yeah, Tarantino didn't write Dusk Til Dawn. He just starred in it. Rodriguez did mention that he was going in a different direction with the series on The Colbert Report a few weeks back. That probably explains why the TV show has a different feel to it than the original film.
Nope, Tarantino wrote the screenplay and co starred in it...
