PRAGER UNIVERSITY: American Indians Are Still Getting a Raw Deal

"We teach what isn’t taught." - Dennis Prager

This semester of Prager University is presented by:  Naomi Schaefer Riley

"Did you know Indians have the highest rates of poverty of any racial group in America?  Did you know that alcoholism is more common among Indian youths than among youths in any other ethnic group?  Did you know that the rate of child abuse among Indians is twice as high as the national average?...[I]nadequate funding isn't the problem.  The billions of dollars that the federal government spends on Indians every year hasn't made their lives better...[O]ther than Indians, the only people who have things held in trust for them are children and the mentally incompetent.  Can anything better illustrate the low regard the government has for American Indians?" – N.S.R.

"History has been cruel to the American Indians (as it has been with almost all ancient cultures - Hittites, Scythians, Phrygians, Celts, etc., etc., etc.), but there's no returning to the 'old ways.'  The sooner they ditch the 'rez' and join the modern-world the better off they will be.  I have no doubt they can compete with everyone else.  They just need to give it a go." – Poison Pero
