The uproar created by Senator Scott Browns staff has Senator Brown trying to mend fences with American Indian community.
Radio station IMRED received a call from one of Senator Browns aides requesting a meeting with a representative from IMRED. The star investigative reporter for IMRED, James Smells A Rat was on the next plane to Boston to meet with Senator Brown.
This is the transcript of that meeting.
At the start of the meeting Senator Brown stands and raises his right hand and says ''How''.
IMRED James..How what? How the hell were you so stupid as to allow your staff to do that little stereotype diddy.
Senator Brown...I didn't know that they were going to do something so awful.
IMRED James...Your the Chief of that little group, so it's on you Brownman, sorry Senator Brown.
Senator Brown..But, but we were trying to honor your people.
IMRED James...Well Senator if you want to honor our people quit breaking treaties.
Senator Brown...You know James you really don't look Indian, are you really from IMRED?
IMRED James...Funny Senator you don't look white, must be the genes. BTW Senator what kind of a name is Brown?
Senator Brown...Now James, no need to get uppity about it. I like your people and have done everything that I can to help them out.
IMRED James..Hey Senator, my people are your people. My great grandmother was an White Princess.
IMRED James. (Thinking to himself) LOL, this guy is as clueless as Inspector Culeso (Indian spelling). Yes really Senator, she was the daughter of one of your senators named Polly Cooper, you may have heard of her shawl. I mean you living in New England you must known alot about Polly Cooper.
Senator Brown...Now that you mention it, it does ring a bell.
IMRED James...(To himself) Ding A Ling for sure.
IMRED James...Now Senator American Indian community would like to know why the attacks on Lezzie? What is this, she doesn't look like a person of color.
Senator Brown..Well James, this is what we see. She lied about being Native America, and used this to help advance her career. She doesn't look Indian.
IMRED James...Well Senator, since you feel she lied, would you please explain to our listeners what a American Indian looks like.
Senator Brown...Well you know, stoic, no sense of humor, dark skin, dark eyes all the usual things.
IMRED James....Yeah and she should have on moccasins with feathers, right?
Senator Brown...Yeah, exactly, I mean no, none of that stereotype stuff.
IMRED James...Senator if she has to prove she's American Indian, I would like you to prove that your white. Like an enrollment card for the white race, or maybe a blood quatum, of even a simple DNA test to prove that your white.
Senator Brown...Well young man, now your insulting me, and as a standing U.S. Senator I will not listen to anymore of this nonsense from you.
IMRED James...Senator I wasn't insulting you, only asking that you prove that your white, just as your asking Lezzie to prove that she's American Indian. I really don't see a problem, do you Senator? I mean you've had all the privileges of being white, I think it's best that you prove your are actually white. I Just hate to see people abusing the system Senator.
Senator Brown...Well I never had to prove that I'm white. I've never heard of such a thing.
IMRED James....Well Senator, now you starting to learn what's it's like to be on the other side, doesn't feel to good does it?
Senator Brown..This interview is over with as of this minute.
IMRED James...Congratulations Senator you've just proved that you are white..Speaking with that forked tongue did it for me. Well done.
IMRED James...Oh Senator I think that you should look up William Whipple Warren. He was a real Indian, a doctor, historian and a master of the Ojbwe language, and Lezzie has the same last name as ''Old Blue Eyes'' Warren. I think that proves she's really an American Indian don't you?
As James Smells A Rat was escorted from Senator Browns office he was sure that he smelled a rat. In the background Trini Lopez is singing ''This Land is Your Land''.
CoH applies as do the Three B's..Be respectful. Be on-topic or BE GONE.
