Before I was white — Development Research Institute Nell Irvin Painter is an African-American historian at Princeton. I just finished her fascinating History of White People. The big story is what a slippery category "White" is, and how many today considered "White" used not to be. But my ancestors later made it into the top in solidarity against new waves of "black" Irish Catholic immigrants in the mid-19th century, considered to belong to the inferior Celtic race. Irish Catholics in turn were moved up into whiteness when the "swarthy" southern Europeans and eastern European Jews arrived in the late 19th century and early 20th century. Painter ranges far and wide, detailing efforts to define the poor as a separate race, and poverty a hereditable condition. Now we know that no such line exists, but not before "race experts" spent a couple generations in power in the academic establishment.

Native American Proverbs, Quotes, and Chants The Native Americans (also known as the Indians or the American Indians) are the original inhabitants of the Americas (North, South and Central America including the Caribbean / West Indies Islands; all of which is also called the New World or the Western Hemisphere). Origins Some scientists and archeologists believe that the Native Americans were people who originally came to the Americas from Asia around 13,000 BC, but possibly as early as 33,000 BC. This was a time when there was much more dry land on the earth than there is today, including a land route from Asia to North America. Other groups contend that Native Americans do not derive from Asian immigrants. Early Native American Life Very early groups of Native Americans were probably hunter-gatherers who formed small groups of about 30 people, and frequently moved. Spreading Throughout the Americas Various groups of Native Americans spread from North America to other parts of the Americas. General Life Children and Adolescents Shooter

showthread Indian tribes expel members source PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island (AP) -- Dennis Champlain's grandfather helped win federal recognition for the Narragansett Indian Tribe. Champlain himself has danced in tribal powwows and teaches his children that they are Narragansetts. Dennis Champlain and his extended family were removed from the rolls of the Narragansett Indian Tribe. Yet the Narragansetts say he is no longer a member of the tribe. Champlain and his extended family are among thousands of people removed from American Indian tribes in recent years, often amid tribal squabbles or when a casino comes to town. Tribal officials say they have the right to decide who is a member and to prevent fraud by people angling for a share of gambling money.

People of New Guniea Existentialisme Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. L’existentialisme est un courant philosophique et littéraire qui postule que l'être humain forme l'essence de sa vie par ses propres actions, en opposition à la thèse que ces dernières lui sont prédéterminées par de quelconques doctrines théologiques, philosophiques ou morales. L'existentialisme considère donc chaque personne comme un être unique qui est maître, non seulement de ses actes et de son destin, mais également, pour le meilleur comme pour le pire, des valeurs qu'il décide d'adopter. Selon Sartre, la famille passe avant le rêve de soi-même. Walter Kaufmann décrit l'existentialisme comme « le refus d'appartenir à une quelconque école de pensée, la répudiation de l'adéquation d'une quelconque croyance, et en particulier des systèmes, et une insatisfaction de la philosophie traditionnelle considérée comme superficielle, académique et éloignée de la vie[1]. » Introduction[modifier | modifier le code] Concepts[modifier | modifier le code]
