Good point Hodja!  There are a lot of native americans who live in poverty, without good schools and yet, have served our country with pride.  If anyone deserves repatriation, it is that group.  

You know, there are huge groups of minorities that are eduated, work hard, own homes, are solidly middle and upper middle class, and worry, not about freebies and reparations, but about keeping their kids on the straight and narrow, raising them to be good people, and worrying about them getting into a good school. They are not all freebie seeking, lawsuit filing, low income, uneducated and they don't call themselves African American, because they know that their links to Africa are a fine thread.  

I wish that we could send huge numbers of "African Americans" on a tour of Africa, so they could see what true poverty looks like and may be wake up to the fact that they have nothing in common with most Africans.  These are people that mostly herd or farm for a living and are eternally grateful for a program that teaches them how to work and be successful.  Once you see true poverty, you realize just how good you have it in the U.S.
