Default Attack on the Indian Child Welfare Act

I know that many here are friends to the Indians -- some, I might even grant "Honorary Native American" status.

There has recently been an attack on the rights of Native Americans to keep their children, something known as the Indian Child Welfare Act, enacted in 1978.

I read a recent article in a well-known right-wing publication which complained that this act is racist, discriminating against non-Natives, and it should not be about race. The writer then proceeded to attack the Native American community, with statistics claiming that Junior is automatically better off with Whites. Zero logical consistency, or integrity.

Being a mother, and having witnessed this sort of thing since I was a child, with it happening to my friends, I am not clueless -- ("Oh, look at that adorable Indian baby, George! I want an Indian child! And I would make a MUCH better mother than that nasty Native American woman!")

I am posting a link to the ICWA page. Please consider writing your representatives, to defend the defense of the Natives.

Many thanks.
