Re: “Dusten Brown, Veronica's biological father, arrested in Oklahoma, out on bond

What the Capobiancos are doing is reprehensible and it is sad that so much of the vocal American public is sympathetic to them and hateful towards the Browns, disparaging of Cherokee Nation, and dismissive of the significance of the 'case,' not just for Veronica and the Browns, but for all American Indian children who might become subject to adoption or the foster system. It just shows how terribly ignorant we are as Americans. This is cultural genocide. If you don't agree, get to reading and learn some American history.

Re: “Did the S.C. Supreme Court get it right on Baby Veronica?

CityDweller, I concur there are many Americans with Native heritage who are not tribally enrolled. However Dusten Brown's tribal enrollment does indeed define him as Native American by federal standards. I think that to say there is a "Native American angle" is to ignore history, the law, and essentially to dismiss rights that are guaranteed to tribes and tribal members through the trust relationship.

DJEsq, If Veronica had come from Melanie Capobianco's womb this would not be an issue, would it?

And, Charles, really... relinquishing parental rights via text message? What kind of post-Huxleyan world do we live in? That is pretty much grasping at straws.
