The 4th of July and Native Americans

Over at Kinky Friedman's Blog there is a facinating post by Rev. Goat Carson regarding what the 4th of July means to Native Americans. In it he relates a disturbing story about Andrew Jackson and the 'Trail of Tears' which points out some uncomfortable parallels between the US's treatment of the Native Americans and events in Nazi Germany in the 1930s.
