Violence Against Native Women

There were some comments on the previous post about statistics regarding the rates of violence against native Americans. Here is the research.

ACCORDING TO A REPORT BY THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, AMERICAN Indians and Crime (Greenfield and Smith, 1999), rates of violent victimization were higher for Native women than for all other groups in the United States. Natives are more likely to be victims of crime than are any other group in the United States. People of a different race committed 70% of violent victimizations against Natives. The report also notes the rate of violent crime experienced by Native women between 1992 and 1996 was nearly 50% higher than that reported by African American males, long known to experience very high rates of violent victimization. According to the Department of Justice, 70% of sexual assaults of Native women are never reported, which suggests that the number of violent victimizations of Native women is actually higher (Ibid.).

Wow, I was not aware it was that bad. There's an issue the media is ignoring.

Yeah, this is definitely the first I've heard of this. Shocking.

I grew up close to an Indian reservation. They are not working. They are full of crime and drug use it is a joke. We need to revamp them or do away with them

Great post, that needs further exposure.




OT: George Bush has a heart attack and dies.
Obviously, he goes to Hell, where the Devil is waiting for him.
"I'm not sure what to do," says the Devil. "you're on my list,
but I have
no room for you. But since you definitely have to stay here, I am going to
have to let someone else go.
"I've got three folks here who weren't quite as bad as you. I'll let one
of them go, but you'll have to take their place. I'll even let you decide
who leaves." George thought that sounded pretty good, so he agreed.
The Devil opened the first room. In it was Richard Nixon and a large pool
of water. He kept diving in and climbing out, over and over.
Such was his fate in Hell.
"No!" George shouted. "I don't think so. I am not a good swimmer,
And I
don't think I could do that all day long".
The Devil led him to the next room. In it was Tony Blair with a sledge
hammer and a room full of rocks. All he did was swing the hammer, over and
over, time after time.
"No! I've got this problem with my shoulder, I would be in constant agony
if all I could do was breaks rocks all day", commented George.
The Devil opened the third door. In it, George saw Bill Clinton Lying on
the floor with his arms staked over his head, and his legs staked in a
spread-eagle pose.
Bent over him was Monica Lewinsky doing what she does best.
George Bush looked at this in disbelief for a while and finally said,

"Yeah, I can handle this."

The Devil smiled and said "Ok, Monica, you're free to go!"

the indigenous peoples of all continents are victims of abuse, neglect, drug use, etc. it absolutely boggles my mind that we, here im america, are still holding out the 'separate but equal' flag in the 21st century. i find it interesting that i have read at least 3 separate accounts from 3 different places this week on 'indian' maltreatment or sub human conditions on reservations. thank you to glenda for opening up a discussion on our hidden problem here in america. check out 'moral highground' on my blog to read more about the conditions in australia. i recently read about the canadians having similiar issues in their fair country. i think that it is fair to ask- what is wrong with us wasps?

Great joke, renegade eye! hi, Pt Graeme time!

betmo, I am responding in another post, mainly because I am long-winded.

i just toured the National Indian Museum in D.C. and it is very interesting. NOT like any museum that I have ever been to. Much more a cultural/political statement than historical/anthropological approach.

I'd love to go see it...sigh...perhaps some day

"Lord, I have a problem!"
"What's the problem, Eve?"
"Lord, I know you've created me and have provided this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals and that hilarious comedy snake, but I'm just not happy."
"Why is that, Eve?" came the reply from above.
"Lord, I am lonely. And I'm sick to death of apples." "Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution. I shall create a man for you."
"What's a 'man,' Lord?"
"This man will be a flawed creature, with aggressive tendencies, an enormous ego and an inability to empathize or listen to you properly, he'll basically give you a hard time. He'll be bigger, faster, and more muscular than you. He'll be really good at fighting and kicking a ball about and hunting fleet-footed ruminants, But, he'll be pretty good in the sack."
"I can put up with that," says Eve, with an ironically raised eyebrow.
"Yeah well, he's better than a poke in the eye with a burnt stick. But, there is one condition."
"What's that, Lord?"
"You'll have to let him believe that I made him first."
:D :D :D
