I agree with what the previous pinner said ..."Native Americans. No, not the Hollywood kind, the true American Indians. The ones we mercilessly massacred, harassed, and tried to wipe from the earth. The ones we drove onto Reservation, which is just a nice word for a concentration camp. The people who continue to suffer because of our prejudice and stereotypes. My heart cries for them, because they are a part of who i am, whether it shows on my skin or not." My heart cries too.
