    Why Is Everyone So Afraid Of Native Americans?

    A few people I've met on the astral plane have serious concerns about native Americans in the form of awkward feelings towards them. I'm only 1/16th Native American but it's obvious enough to any native whose family is 1/2 or 1/4 or more that I am also. If you have a scare about...
