It is absolutely profound what it means to the black community. And it is also profound what it means to ALL minority communities. I don't think it is inappropriate for someone to point that out.

The Native American question is a more complex one for me. No other minority group in this country is simulanteously attempting to be a part of the country AND maintain a separate nation identity. It seems an odd dicotomy to me of "we want a share in leading the group, but we don't want to be fully part of the group." It would be something I would be interesting discussing further with you sometime, as you have first hand data that I think would be incredibly valuable to my thought process.

You forget Puerto Ricans. They are trying to maintain status as both part of this country and a separate one as well.

They haven't taken the separation quite as far as the Native Americans have currently, but to a more minor degree, absolutely. And I feel the same, "Wait, you can't have it both ways" reaction in re: to Puerto Rico.
