Counting down to till the first press release/appearance from a Native American Group upset about the performance of “Hey Ya. . .”

10 . . . 9 . . . 8

The marching band was a nice touch but, I like the Snow Bunny Outfits better.

AUTHOR UPDATE: For T-David: Andre “Ice Cold” 3000 and his entourage came out to perform “Hey Ya” at the Grammy’s in outfits inspired by what I guess would be considered traditional Native American Dress. This post was mainly intended to be a little comment on the way people overreact to things, and I guess I proved the point. There was also a small kernel of truth to the idea that Native American Groups might be offended, and this was based on my wife’s reaction, who while not Native American, grew up in the heart of the Cherokee Nation: Tahlequah, OK. The only thing I saw that might be considered crossing the line was the wearing of the Full Head Dress by the D.J.

Also, I did not intend for this post to be a troll trap, but apparently Mr. Yeagley just cannot help himself.

    Indians, like everyone else in America, have been pressured into fear of “black” people. “Black” people get OFFENDED, terribly. No one must offend them, ever, for any reason.

    There may not be too much outrage in print. Someone might get threatened with violence, or sued.

  • http://www.tekwh0re.net Ms. Tek

    David, will you fucking choke already!! Can’t you play in traffic, or something?

    What the hell was it that made you turn this way? What did a black person get that you felt you should have gotten but did not? What turned you into such a vile creature?

  • David Yeagley

    I rest my case.

  • shaun

    haha, i ahve to agree with david on this one

  • B

    As an American Indian I’m confused. The networks said that in light of a certain breast being exposed on t.v. all subsequent live performances will be on a five second delay to quickly edit out any offensive material. Yet, we,Indeginious Americans, were lampooned by the members of OutKast in the ending number of the Grammys 2004. Now to me that hurts a lot more than seeing Mrs. Jackson’s breast. I know many people aren’t interested in Native American issues but the continual use of these charaicatures makes it hard for us to remain a valid culture in manys eyes. Through these kinds of performances and stereotypes we have turned into cartoons and images of the past instead of the live and active members of todays world that we are.

    Lets turn the tables. Say a top selling act decided that thier new song sort of resembles an African Tribal chant. And this performer decides to go along with that motif. I can see on stage non-Africans dreassed up with some sort of loin cloth or perhaps some grass like the Africans we see in National Geographic or the Discovery Channel. These “Africans” all have huge painted on lips, large prosthetic noses, and holding spears. They dance around a large cooking pot with a white captive inside getting boiled for supper. All in good fun and to enhance the artistic quality of the performance. I’d be suprised if even George W. Bush ‘hissef’ didn’t get on t.v. and speak out against such a racist act.

    Still, no one cares that this was the case for America’s original inhabitants. It’s a sad day in American when the race that has fought so hard for thier freedom and civil rights would so openly and shamelessly use such a beautiful people in such an ugly and demeaning way.

  • Eric Olsen

    I didn’t think the usage was in any way ugly or degrading, but I do get your point.

  • David Yeagley

    Here’s another “protest,” from Native American Times:
    http://nativetimes.com/index.asp?action=displayarticle&article_id=3764

    It is the last paragraph in the article.

    Eric, you cannot be expected to sense anything degrading in the OutKast performance. You have shown no familiarity whatever with Indian ways or values. Your opinion is utterly biased, is it not?

    Never mind the other conversations. Stay right here. You obviously perceive no difference whatever in non-white cultures. This it white liberal way. All “darkies” are the same to you.
    Is this not true, in a very real sense?

    Your words here are very, very telling.

    You grant OutKast the right to play Indian, like whites love to do, but who are being told “No Indian mascots, names, or logos.”

    Can you straighten this out, or shall we just right it off as “Indians are on the bottom, and “blacks” can do whatever they want.”? “Blacks” represent all dark people and therefore have the authority to do whatever they want, even things white people can’t do.

    This is truly crippled thinking on the part of the white liberal. Shall we call it “racist?”

  • http://w6daily.winn.com/ Phillip Winn

    Mr. Yeagley, your attempts to spin the innocent statments of others as racist from behind your dark heart are repugnant. While you rant and rave against black people on nearly every topic from the comfort of your website, good people of all cultures, including those indigenous to America, work to leave your kind in the past, where your message belongs.

    I know better than to think you misunderstand. I will tell you right now that you are on a short list of people looking to get banned. Attribute that to whatever you wish, and I’m sure you’ll turn it into someting race-related. But know this: it is only because of one thing, your statements.

  • http://macaronies.blogspot.com Mac Diva

    Another reason why the other thread should have remained open. It was serving as a repository. Now, Yeagley and his tagalongs will be all over the place. The more places they are, the more readers will see them. The more readers who see them, the worse the impression created.

    And, Eric, please. You know better than what you just said in an effort at comity. American music is largely based on African music for Chrissakes. Only someone bigoted enough to believe there is something wrong with African chants (because ‘gorillas’ produce them?) would have posted the hogwash ‘B,’ probably Yeagley himself, did.

    And, once more, these people do not represent American Indians. Both Yeagley and Gross up and declared themselves Indians a few years ago. Until then, they said they were white. So, there is no need to kowtow a to naive assumption they represent anyone other than themselves. They don’t. The average Indian is just as appreciative of the civil rights movement as any other ‘colored’ person. He or she knows that but for the bravery of African-American leaders, the rights now taken for granted would not exist.

  • http://www.blogbloke.com BB

    Mr. Yeagley it is good to find a major purpose in life that gives our boring, meagre lives meaning. But with all due respect please learn to be a little more color blind. I say that in all sincerity and not just for your sole edification. That goes for all of us.

  • http://www.makeyougohmm.com/ TDavid

    Chris Cotner – with all due respect, this is one of those increasingly common posted blog entries that doesn’t contain enough information to fill in the blanks for those who aren’t familiar with the situation.

    It assumes knowledge about ‘Hey ya’ (with no links) and why a Native American Group would be upset?

    And no, I’m not following the URL in comment #1, because that one is on the Do Not Visit list.

    By the comments I can draw inference, but it would be nice to have some sort of history on this piece. Just FYI, not everybody follows this kind of thing :(

    Thanks.

  • David Yeagley

    Okay. Maybe I should have just let you all respond to “B”‘s post without interfering. I should have let you show if you’d learned anything from the other conversations.

    A word of advice, if you really want to grow, you’ll have to ban MacDiva. This individual is too rancorous, and will only attract more of the same. McD is more than guilty of every accusation she makes, and the fact that you would let a non-descript, non-identified, non-named, non-repectful, apparently perpetually prevaricating person continue to dominate, shows you are either inexperienced in this business, or you agree with he/she/or it. I think it’s the latter, so, that’s what you’ll get.

    I’ll politely leave on my own. If you want any comments from me, conatact me at BadEagle.com. I’ll be happy to respond. Remember, I was invited here.

  • http://www.tekwh0re.net Ms. Tek

    *sigh*

    You all know better. Why fan the flames?

    I promise you, keep responding, and if he doesn’t get banned, he and gross are going to be a reoccuring problem. I’ve read the other sites and forums. The racist hard on they have hasn’t even begun to show yet. Nip it while there is still time.

  • http://www.tekwh0re.net Ms. Tek

    Yeagley, you were invited by Al Barger. It seems that most the other regulars would like to see you and your bigoted statements gone. Or are you like a vampire? Once invited in, no one can be rid of you?

    If you truly are a patriot, then you will believe in democracy. The majority of us would like to see you go away.

    So, go away.

  • http://www.tekwh0re.net Ms. Tek

    Oh… and I forgot to add…

    Thank you for going away.

  • chip

    As scary as it may sound when it comes to Mac Diva, Yeagley makes a good point doesn’t he?

  • http://macaronies.blogspot.com Mac Diva

    Whatever. I have two successful blogs of my own and get invited to join other group blogs regularly. Furthermore, good writers are not the rule in the blogosphere. Blogcritics loss would just be someone else’s gain. And, considering that I have quit the site before, I would have had first dibs anyway.

    (Actually, I don’t think these ‘new’ commenters are real. I suspect they are Yeagley or one of his few supporters posting under different names and email accounts. So, I am going to take their brain droppings with a grain of salt.)

    Vic, I must have read hundreds of responses to Yeagley over the years. I agree that he is impermeable, as insane people often are. And, he has been performing the very same act for at least a decade. Talking about a wasted life. . . .

    We’ve all read MD’s comments below:

    “Actually, he has quite a lot in common with such persons, since he was a fervidly Right Wing, insecure, none too bright, crack-brained white man before he decided to ‘become’ an Indian.”

    Question: If Mr. Yeagley, Al Barger or any other person had made that comment and we changed the words “white man” to black man would that be considered racist?

    Are you American Indian, if not shut your face up. The civil rights acts and laws are abused continuously by others and we the American Indians must struggle on a daily basis to get equality here in America.

    You feel the Outkast deal was not offensive to American Indians..of course you would not…you spit out vile racist remarks yourself and judge others when it is tossed back into your face.

    Now I am not going to post again oh, black one unless you use my name again!

    Problem? The only problem on this blog is you self serving God fearing non-entities who feel you can judge others and make efforts to discredit American Indians by chanting RACISM, RACISM!

    The reality of these posts reveal it is you the faithful peacemakers in America that are afraid to talk on the subject of racism. Yes, racism exists in Indian country not only against the whites but you blacks also.

    Betty: “… American Indians must struggle on a daily basis to get equality here in America.”

    Betty, at the risk of defusing this ‘war’ into a rational conversation, I have a few serious questions:

    1) In what ways are American Indians unequal?

    2) That statement implies that American Indians fuction as a monolithic entity; Is that really the case?

    3) What specifically would you like to see changed in order for American Indians to get equality? Aspects of society? Current laws? Perceptions? Reinstate broken treaties from the past? Restitution? Others?

    I’m asking with sincerity in the hope that you’ll enlighten and educate me.

    I would welcome a civil, reasonable response from David also.

    Thanks in advance,
    Shark

    Hey, don’t leave me out. I have a question too. And seriously, the fate of Native Americans could hinge on the answer.

    What do you think of David Lee Roth?

  • http://macaronies.blogspot.com Mac Diva

    David Lee Roth? He’s kind of washed up. But, I prefer him to Yeagley.

  • Betty Ann Gross

    For being such so called well-educated and diversed people on this blog, it appears to us that the only groups of people you prefer to associate with are blacks and of course whites.

    American Indians possess something rare that no other nation has and this is what assisted our ancestors and us today to survive.

    Blacks and whites feel superior over any other minority race here in America and yet they are the most pitiful groups here in the USA. Blacks like the one’s on this site “feel” they are empowered when in reality there are powerless. The whites feel they control America through their genetic coding but in reality they are only props.

    Until you folks here in America realize that this country is not one dream world of a huge melting pot, you are going to remain static in your viewpoints. You will continue to be afraid to speak out openly about issues that are controversial in nature. And you will continue to feed off one another like parasites. Whites feeding off blacks in fear of being sued. Blacks feeding out whites in fear of being left out of the American dream. What you white and black folks don’t realize is that the era of slavery still has you bound together…so have fun in that dream world of equality, justice and freedom for all.

    It is very evident on this site that you choose to condemn two American Indians because they are outspoken. Instead of asking in a civil manner why we choose to be the way we are…you followed like yes men and women behind a black woman and you attacked Yeagley and I. To me this is open retaliation and discrimination against American Indians on this site. The past has not really changed here in America. You blacks and whites still feel superior over American Indians. But don’t you ever forget that this land has our ancestors blood stained on it forever.

    There are many websites and educational sites on the web where you can read about anyone of the tribes in America. The best place to start is in the heartbeat of America with the Santee, Teton and Yankton bands in South Dakota.

    Actually, not one word would have been different if you had been Cambodians: your ideas and values were attacked, not your ethnic group. A lot of people made the point that they do not believe you speak for American Indians. This is simply a plea for victimology.

    “Actually, not one word would have been different if you had been Cambodians: your ideas and values were attacked, not your ethnic group. A lot of people made the point that they do not believe you speak for American Indians. This is simply a plea for victimology.” Posted

    And you do not speak for a vast majority of Americans either, now do you. A plea for victimology..wrong, I am not a black person, I don’t bring victimology or holler racism when attacked by blacks and whites. You’ve been nestled in the white and black bosoms of one another for so long, you lost site of your direction…too funny.

    When you attack our words, values and belief systems, you are ATTACKING us…so don’t give me that smoke screen or fluff of this site not using retaliation against us.

    You are too afraid to fight a race fight, because you do not understand the problem here. You are all professional posters without nothing else to show in life.

    Well, I earned my eagle feathers and so did Yeagley and now I personally want some answers from this so called professional blog about your remarks and comments tossed my way.

    Betty Ann

  • Betty Ann Gross

    Unlike most of you professional so called critics of the human species, I need to get to work, but am going to say one last thing here.

    You openly attacked a comanche man Dr. Yeagley without trying to reason or understand what he was trying to say.

    Instead you immediately allowed a black woman to lead you by the nose and attack, condemn, humiliate and distort the posts of Yeagley.

    All of you still feel American Indians are the lesser group of people here in America and that is just fine with me. I would rather walk down a crowded avenue with a homeless person then anyone of you on this site. This is how disgusting your site really is.

    So line up and dance your dance behind Outkast.

    Betty Ann

  • http://w6daily.winn.com/ Phillip Winn

    Here’s an answer, Ms Gross: Yes, I am (part) American Indian. (#21) However, the idea that I must be of a certain race in order to speak my mind is appalling, and reveals much about you.

    You have now threatened this board with destructive behavior (#23), something I don’t appreciate at all. Your statements are not welcome here. We manage to be contentious enough discussing issues of race without the vile malignant stain of your words polluting these boards.

    Please crawl back under your rock. Thank you.

    P.S. Don’t bother answering all of the questions you’ve been asked. You clearly don’t intend to anyway, but the offer is rescinded.

    Unbelievable. I do not understand why some people see everything through a colored lens. My family originates from the Dakotas. My family is of a mixed race and the one thing that I teach my kids is to be color blind. When I come across people that see everything as black, red, white, yellow, green , purple or polka dot I frankly don’t get it. It is a simplistic, vile view of the world and surely the human species is much more than that.

    Betty Ann I do not judge you by your color or race, nor do I dance to the tune of MD or anybody else at BC. I speak and think for myself. I agree that some of the attacks on you were out of line. Nevertheless you must understand it is a topic that brings out the worst in people and those that live by the sword die by the sword. Judge not lest you be judged. They are words to live by. Please learn a little tolerance and you will receive accordingly.

    “The average Indian is just as appreciative of the civil rights movement as any other ‘colored’ person. He or she knows that but for the bravery of African-American leaders, the rights now taken for granted would not exist.” Mac Diva

    This is such a strange statement it should exclude you from further comment on anything:
    1] You claim to know what the “average Indian” thinks. You do not know what an average Indian is. You just made this up [because it makes you feel good.]
    2] The civil rights movement did nothing for Indians on reservations. So far as I know, Indians do not think the civil rights movement moved them at all, much less into a grand state that they now take for granted. The condition of reservations speaks for itself.
    3] Least of all did the civil rights movement abolish the BIA, the chronic source of the Federal Gov’t’s treaty violations.
    4] MLK was brave and a hero, but he in no way considered Indians as in severe need of liberation to a treatment of equality under the law. He ignored Indians, not purposefully, but because he had enough on his hands. You seem to think MLK somehow saved Indians and that they should thank him for it. [I thank MLK for being himself.] This idea that Indians should be beholden to Blacks is as example of what Yeagley is talking about. Comprende?
    5] I am not aware that Indians view themselves as “colored”. Nor should they want to, IMHO. Others may want to in order to make themselves feel good: thus they still seem to want to feel superior to Indians in being able to coapt them as “colored” when they are not colored, and Blacks know this.
    6] As a point of order, black is not a color. It is the absence of light. White contains all colors. Thus Whites are the most colored.
    7] What you should really be worried about is your acceptance of your designation as an “African American”. Think about it: the term implies you are not really an American like the rest of us. It implies that maybe you should go back to Africa, which no one in their right mind should want to do.

    This contradictory dream or demand will never be fulfilled. Thus,it says your roots are in Africa and you will never be at peace until you go there, which you will never do. You are in limbo by means of this term.

    The term demands you recall a history which did not happen personally to you, and that you should look at your self as a victim, or permanently handicapped by an event which occurred at least 7 generations ago [a generation being a 20 year interval.]

    The strangest thing about the term is that you have not been allowed to choose it. You can call yourself that, but why should everyone else assume that any particular Black wants to be named thus? Aren’t individual Blacks allowed to make up their own minds? No.

    So have Democrats/Liberals furthered your freedom or have they tried to keep you enslaved psychologically and materially by creating a victimhood mentality and reality requiring an entitlement, which you then insure with your vote?

    Doing battle with Indians, or trying to control them in the same way Liberals control you is a big mistake.

    I was gravely offended by the Monty Python Spam sketch, which depicted Vikings, my ancestors, as loud, boisterous, intrusive, hedonistic, drunken…oh, wait…I guess that’s true…uh…nevermind.

  • http://macaronies.blogspot.com Mac Diva

    You’re getting it, Duane. All three of my groups of ancestors (Indian, African and white) were “loud, boisterous, intrusive,” etc., at times, thank you. The sad asses trying to make an issue of this are taking normal human behavior and trying to turn it into something reprehensible because ‘the blacks’ did it. You would think whites and Indians never party, for chrissakes.

    Latest Yeagley posters, the civil rights movement was more than Martin Luther King, Jr. It was the impetus for the civil rights legislation that made it possible for people of color (anyone who thinks Indians are not people of color is being ludicrous) free to participate in the larger society. That made public accommodations, employment, educational facilities and even marriage outside of one’s ‘race’ open to everyone. Nor is it true that any group of ‘colored’ Americans was ignored. If one looks at the amicus curiae briefs for the civil rights cases, they are there, too, because they were suffering from segregation and discrimination just as much as African-Americans. Often lawyers and other leaders from different minority groups worked together. Did the movement and laws solve all the problems? Of course not.

    The Indian racists I’ve known have usually been complete losers like Yeagley. They were looking for scapegoats, a way to ignore their own problems. And, ultimately, they always have failed. ‘In the bottle’ was often where they ended up. I don’t know if Yeagley is there, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he is.

    Well, they keep coming here from over at Yeagley’s site, Vic. Maybe it is the agnostic missionary in me, but I feel a need to say that what they claim doesn’t make sense. Indians not people of color? The civil rights movement not including rights for Indians? Indians being solemn all the time? I can’t ignore ignorance like that.

    I released by first recording recently. Opus One Recording. It is American classical contemporary. It is a tone poem for American Indian flute and the Polish National Radio Symphony.

    To be fair, in the music business, I must allow everyone to critique the “authenticity” of the work, and invite racial, ethnic, cultural, and personal criticism!

    I’ll send a copy of the CD to Blogscritics and see what happens. There’s a NAMMY award category these days…(for “Native” Americans. I think that means Indian.)
