Politically he seemed to hate eveyone equally and he would jump from the extreme right to left in a blink of an eye, although it seemed like he would be trolling me at times just to get a reaction, lol

Main reason why I was is because I work and interact with natives every day. I can tell you that they a lot of them work hard and treat people with respect. They work hard too. Sure, they mess with me for being white and I give it to 'em right back about being native but it's all good fun. The only ones that feel like the dude in the video are the drunk ones with no job roaming the street.

I feel like a lot of people (and it seems evident in this thread) that natives are these people with resentment towards white folk and like the dude in the video.

They do it big on thanksgiving as well. One I work with even invited me over.

They are some shitty people out there that give 'em hell. One dude I work with blatantly told me for awhile he was racist towards white people because a bunch of white guys beat up his mother and stole all her navajo jewelry. Of course he's no longer like that but you get what I mean. Shitty people exist everywhere.

Bottom line is this country was founded on immigration and "whites" are the original immigrants. Just because they have run the country for a long time and have more guns doesn't make it okay to treat others this way. A ton of our economy is driven by these immigrants who work their asses off as their lives depend on it.

Not to mention as long as they go through the legal process they should be welcome with open arms. I'm not a fan of them sneaking in, faking their identity etc but if they do it right, who gives a shit?

Of course there are. Those are the smart natives, the ones that have adapted and contributed to modern society instead of performing Ghost Dances and wishing for everyone to go away.

YES.
This is everyone's biggest problem. Why do illegals deserve the same rights and entitlements as legal immigrants and U.S citizens when they cheat the system? If they can't come in here legally and complete the full process OUTSIDE of the U.S, then they don't deserve to embrace the benefits of the U.S, especially since they don't have to pay for it like legal immigrants and US citizens do.

Let me clarify, I don't think there aren't any Native Americans that helped contribute to the growth of America.
What I was trying to say is, when it's said and done and a lot of them didn't contribute to modern America, they don't get to call it "their land" anymore.

White men settled, couldn't protect their borders. Mexicans moved in. America stopped being the "white mans land" a long, looooooooooooong time ago.

Modern America is an overpopulated, polluted shit-hole that's in the process of falling apart. I'm pretty sure Native Americans are proud they didn't contribute to that.

First of all, this isn't about "Mexicans", this is about illegal immigration. If you sneak in here, f*ck the system, and steal from the American citizens, then you don't deserve to be here.

They can't say that if they are enjoying the benefits of it.

So it would be better if illegals just killed Americans and took the land instead?

They wouldn't be able to do that, for one, because they'd get massacred by followers of the 2nd amendment(Which is how many Americans?) and because they'd be screwing themselves
Not only would all of them get kicked out immediately, it give the government a good reason to shut it's borders to immigration permanently.
