Watson on Obama on the Freedmen

From my Right Honorable Colleague, Wampum: Cong. Diane Watson responds to Barack Obama’s recent dodge on the Freedmen case. While I generally agree with her comments, I wish she had mentioned that the Cherokee National Council actually abolished slavery before the 1866 Treaty, in fact before the Emancipation Proclamation. This should be a matter of historical pride for the Nation; instead, the whole Freedmen debacle has exposed a nasty, virulent strain of racism among (primarily thin-blood) Cherokee.
