I heard an interesting conversation a few months back between a Russian TV journalist and legendary Civil Rights activist Russell Means. The journalist said that they never believed what the Soviets had said about the USA and about how badly the native people were treated there but now almost 20 years on they realize that it is true. And indeed they discovered while touring Pine Ridge Indian Reservation for a documentary they were shooting they discovered conditions worse than they ever imagined. Bear in mind that the average age for men their is lower than any nation on earth if you remove Aids, Malaria and war from the stats and they have an average per capita income a fraction of Namibia’s. Was a fascinating thing to hear.
