But really, it isn't the job of the respondent to provide any sort of research. If you want a very quick example of a treaty made with Native Americans that was not broken, take a look at indian reservations. There are currently 310 reservations in the United States, and not a single person that works on one needs to pay taxes of any sort to the United States. So, before throwing insults, perhaps it would be good to become informed on the subject.

ever been to a reservation or live near one? I have. saw the native kids bussed 100 miles grades K-12 every monday morning to what looked like a prison. 10 foot tall fences topped with razor wire where they were held all week. then they were taken back on friday nights to their families. the reservation had trailers with electricity and running water...most of the time. this was in california. when I lived in alaska I saw much worse conditions the natives were forced to live in. that informed enough for ya, chief?

as a matter of fact, during the 3 years I lived in alaska I only ever met 2 natives who were employed. both of them were women in their 20s who were very pretty and didn't 'look native'. I actually applied for a job as a DBA at a local company. I was told that since I didn't grow up in alaska, I would only be hired if the only other applicants were native american. when I asked why, the interviewer told me that natives are known for taking a job up until they get 1 paycheck, then disappear to cash their check and buy 'fire water'. yes this actually happened and I'll never forget it.

Actually, no, I do not consider that terribly informed. You have made no mention of any treaties that have been broken. Beyond that, you have made mention of conditions within reservations; independent areas of governance through "the natives." Reservations are held IN A TREATY as a trust with the United States federal government where the tribe(s) can operate as a sovereign entity. The conditions therein are caused by the individual governance within each reservation. The fact that there is even a single reservation shows that your message is incorrect.

there is a long history of broken treaties. now that they have been removed from their original locations and given land in remote places that nobody wants and is nearly uninhabitable is a solid argument tho. so good job there. otherwise, if you have not read a history book regarding all the previous treaties that were broken, let me provide the fruits of my 10 second web search: http://broken-treaties-opportunity-race.tumblr.com/ this will be my last response about this as the argument is ridiculous.

I agree that your argument has been ridiculous. You have not come up with a single viable source of information on broken treaties. It is obvious that you are trying to push your "white man's guilt" upon the rest of us and it is really your own personal issue. Next time, do your research. Better yet, consult a history and law professor. They will greatly expand your knowledge on the subject.

And people get so defensive when I tell them that Mexicans moving in with us to find a better life is the same as us moving in with the American Indians to find a new life....
