re: #4 Naso Tang

I am not commenting on the injustices that resulted in “camps” that became called “reservations”. Where does the word originate?

1. The act of reserving; a keeping back or withholding.
2. Something that is kept back or withheld.
3. A limiting qualification, condition, or exception.

Is that what these people will live under forever? I think it is an anachronism and a self perpetuating state of second class citizenship, casinos and “traditional” whaling with modern rifles and power boats aside.

The system certainly has its flaws, but “‘traditional’ whaling with modern rifles and power boats” is not one of them. that’s completely false.
