An Eagle Eye in Harlem | VIDEO

An Eagle Eye in Harlem | VIDEO | Life in America | Scoop.it

From Malcolm X Boulevard to pow-wow road trips, a black man from Georgia adopts a Cherokee persona despite questionable ties to any Native American roots.


Via Community Village
Christopher Cox's insight:

 A very sad thing has happened. This has nothing to do with dancing, this is worse. But the Seminole Nation has tried to remove members who are of mixed African and Native American descent. And this has happened with the Cherokees also. There's been a kind of rift. So it seems that the initial lack of racism that led to this amalgamation has now gradually morphed into the acceptance of the kind of racism that was so prevalent in the white societies that nurtured it with slavery.
