Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

Stupid White Man of the Week: Michael Berry

Mayor Pro Tem of Houston and talk-radio blow-hole for his clever observation that "we" should stop "apologizing" and "giving welfare" and "casinos" to Native Americans because, after all, "200 years ago they were whipped in a war." Berry added that it was okay for him to say that because he has "enough American Indian in me." No doubt his great great grandmother was a Cherokee Princess...

Dear Mayor Berry:

You are cordially invited to kiss my rosy Cherokee ass.

Patrick G. Barkman

P.S. If it wasn't for smallpox, your ancestors would have been swimming back to England. So "whip" that.
UPDATE: More reactions to Berry's idiocy.

So his honor pro tempore has enough Indian blood to get away with his remarks. Forget about the casinos. I think the NA community is ignoring an incredibly precious commodity that only they can provide: "Indian blood." It's not clear what quantum is needed, but apparently if you have enough of it, you can make the most ignorant and hateful remarks possible and still not be seen as a jerk. So, if you've got a CDIB card, why not sell a pint or so of blood every few weeks. Actually, if it just requires NDN plasma instead of whole blood, you could probably give every few days. Just think about it, if Imus had gotten his Indian blood fix a couple of weeks ago, he'd still have his radio/TV job. Now, poor GW on the other hand, he'd probably need a complete transfusion for it to work.

Good God, man, not so loud! Abramoff'll cut a deal with Tom DeLay and by the end of the week we'll all be hooked up to ten gallon milking machines! And I don't have that much "Indian blood" to spare!
