    If it were the Mohawks that were implicated in this...there would be tons of comments calling us every name in the book. I didn't realize that non-natives deal drugs. Really? They do bad things? Really?

      @Karakwi:io I agree. Only it is a handful of Mohawks that like to do bad things and ALL Mohawks get the bad name.
      So I guess this means that ALL non-natives are drug dealers? It must be true it was on the news. *; )
