The genocide of the indigenous peoples of North America has never been properly addressed in the educational system and this is evident with the long list of ignorant user comments. Ignorance is bliss. It is a sad, sad world when the American population can’t understand the destruction and pain that the their homes were built on.

The pain and suffering that Native Americans Populations have endured, and particularly the plight of Native American Women, make converting the "memes" of their visual culture into a promotional vehicle for Michelle Willams a deeply disturbing spectacle. Domestic violence and sexual assault against Native women is endemic. Yet you will never see their faces, and many of them will not get the justice or relief in their lives that any human deserves. Meanwhile Hollywood co-opts tribal iconography into a sultry expression of "cool" for a starlet. It's a real shame that we see celebrities all the time, and yet do not look at the very real problems facing our society - including our woeful problems with racial inequality. Maybe if those problems were front and center more often, something would be done. I don't know what is politically incorrect about deeply regretting the real problems of our society are being diminished, while a celebrity culture that is disrespectful to women and to minorities hypnotizes the masses. Blessings to all who read this, whatever your opinion may be. This is difficult to look at.

I am of Cherokee descent and consider this feigned outrage silly. Who cares? I am not offended nor is it any of my business. Just another example of those who want to be victims. Lighten up!
