SORT BY Relevancy
In news making international headlines, several Native actors were told "If you guys are so sensitive, you should leave,...", in response to their concerns of denigrating and racist portrayals of Native people. They left the production.
Hollywood has long been known for stereotyping Native characters, or portraying the white hero who saves the day for the Natives as if they were incapable of overcoming insurmountable adversity.
One Navajo actor, Loren Anthony, originally refused to participate in the film, but changed his mind when he was told a cultural consultant was hired to ensure a "tasteful representation" of Natives. They told me it was going to be a comedy, but it would not be racist he said. Other Native actors and actresses expressed their concern, but were ignored and told they should leave. When they left, including the consultant, the story went viral and was reported on CNN International.
Critics say they should have expected anything different because it is satire. The definition of satire is:
1. the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.
2. a literary composition, in verse or prose, in which human folly and vice are held up to scorn, derision, or ridicule.
3. a literary genre comprising such compositions.
Netflix, who signed Sandler defended defended him, "The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous. It is a broad satire of Western movies and the stereotypes they popularized, featuring a diverse cast that is not only part of -- but in on -- the joke."
David Hill, Choctaw, says the producers has called back the consultant and those who left. We'll be speaking with David Hill and others about their experiences with this racial stereotyping. Please join us friday evening on Eaglemanz: Chahta Nation.

Deanne McDonald must repay the money she got for agreeing to remain tight-lipped about the actor Adam Sandler.
A court has ordered Deanne McDonald who was hired as a nanny in 2009 to pay back $80,000 in damages after she accused him of treating her like a slave. Sandler then paid McDonald $48,000, as well as a further $29,000 to her attorneys to make the matter go away and she signed a confidentiality agreement.
However despite agreeing not to speak about the matter, last year she changed her mind and tried to file a lawsuit. But an arbitrator quickly ruled she was in violation of the confidentiality agreement by repudiating it, disclosing confidential information and threatening to sue and an appeal’s court told her to pay back the $80,000 Sandler had paid to keep her quiet.
The US Justice System is broken! We can refer to race, but also we must take into account the differences between the RICH and POOR.
The arrest rate of African American youth is nearly two times that of white youth. African American youth are 1.4 times more likely to be detained than white youth arrested for the same crimes, and are twice as likely to be transferred to adult court.
African American youth are 10 times more likely than their white peers to be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. This is just one example of disparities in sentencing. African Americans of all ages are given sentences twice as long as whites.
African Americans make up more than half (56.1%) of youth sentenced to life without parole. This is almost identical to the disparity seen among the overall population sentenced to life without parole, where 56.4% are African American.

THE WOUNDED WALK
Ross Delafield was born and raised in New York City.
A walk across the United States was the daunting idea – 2,700 miles from Camp Pendleton, CA to Washington, DC, all to raise awareness for their wounded brothers and sisters in arms. In April 2013, Adam and Chris started planning their journey – planning their route, notifying friends, and spreading the word of wounded veterans in need.Over several months, thousands of miles, and many pairs of shoes, Adam went on to complete the journey and inspire a nation.
To create experiences that empower veterans to help themselves and others. The Wounded Walk is a nonprofit organization located in Leesburg, Virginia. Our goal is to challenge, motivate, and empower physically and mentally wounded military veterans by leading wilderness excursions, camping treks, and mountaineering expeditions. The Wounded Walk also advocates for the advancement of post-combat treatment for wounded veterans.
The log is a 40lb Memorial that represents those who have taken their own lives. We carry this everywhere we go in honor of those who lost their grip.
Nearly 22 US Veterans take their own lives EVERY day. That is over 8,000 per year. 40,000 since 2010.

Mattityahu 5:14-16Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)
14 You are the Ohr HaOlam (the Light of the World). A city lying on a mountaintop cannot be nistar (hidden).
15 No one, after lighting a menorah, places it under a measuring basket, but on the shulchan (table), and it gives ohr (light) to kol anshei habais (all in the house).
16 In like manner, let your ohr (light) so shine before Bnei Adam, that they may see your maasim tovim (good works) and give kavod (glory) to your Av shbaShomayim (Father in Heaven).
