  1. Due to the economic crisis that always comes up 🇺🇸🇺🇸 the best thing to be on every wise individuals mind or list is to invest in different streams of income that's not depending on the government to create funds

  2. It's only offensive to the so called "natives" because they know the mascots don't represent them. They represent the true indigenous people. 🤷🏽‍♀️

    How did they go from copper colored to pale face? 🤔

  4. It's unbelievable, first term Joe Biden will go put 20% of the US population of the illegal immigrants around 30 millions . Never happened this and if you American citizens don´t take one providence will go worst. This is one truly crise. 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡

  5. I can't believe this has not been made illegal yet 😲, it's clearly offensive to the native American culture, why does the indigenous people of America always come last to the American government, in reality they should really be a priority and a leader head in the American government – (meaning the decisions made in the best interests of America should be run by one of the indigenous leaders ) why do the natives have to work extra hard to be heard or recognized because from where Im standing it's always the case and I live in Ireland …. U don't see native American sports using a priest outfit or a nuns dress or even a Muslim headscarf on Thier mascots cause we all know if they did it would be a different story , I bet bit would offensive than 🤔🤣

  6. If you got to be a crackhead to believe that that blonde head white woman is Native American… She's a five dollar Indian if there was ever one

  7. 🚀 The Russian Defense Ministry informs:

    ▪ in Slovyansk, militants of the Ukrainian territorial defense are searching for pro-Russian locals, they check the history of calls to Russian phone numbers and messages in chats condemning the Kiev regime, subscriptions to Russian channels, detainees are tortured and threatened. To avoid punitive action, they demand for $500 – $1000.

    ▪ under the leadership of the British special services, a new production is being prepared in the Sumy region – in the city of Seredina-Buda, which was previously under the control of Russian troops, representatives of Ukrainian and Western media were invited to shoot, a curfew was introduced in the city to conceal the provocation, and local population forcibly evicted.

    ▪ in Nizhnyaya Syrovatka near Sumy, bodies are being dragged into one of the basements, which will be presented as supposedly victims of the Russian army – according to the plan of the "British directors", Russian units allegedly massively killed civilians and mocked them when they retreated, in fact, Russian troops left from there even March 20 – and such events, if they happened, could not but become public during this time.

    ▪ today in Ukraine, along the "diplomatic corridor" through Germany and Poland, French special operations forces arrived with technical experts from the gendarmerie and the Ministry of Internal Affairs – apparently, the main areas of their activity will be the concealment of war crimes by Ukrainian security forces and the fabrication of accusations against the Russian military.

  8. Did you see what happened to that white man in the video with the new truck? Someone tortured him. Why do people hate white people? That man could only remember a few numbers.

  9. America, the youngest country and the most violence one out of all other countries. Why is that. Are we that frighten of each other.
    Tell me I'm wrong. White America and there needs for guns is behind the violence. How many more of our children have to die.

  10. They are trying to change names in our cities and towns now and it’s all based on lies I say just get rid of all the monuments and names they don’t want to be remembered so we are going to give them what they want erasing all our Native American literature from libraries and monuments going right into the landfills to be completely forgotten.

  11. All white people arent Buccaneers or gold mining pioneers or northern civil war soldiers jesus christ is just a name and it was part of our culture this is all bullshit
