    Faulty math...

    Yesterday we were in a small town in north Georgia. A guy came up to me and told me he was full-blooded Cherokee, but he didn't look like it because he got his looks from his mother's side!

    I didn't ask how he came to be full-blooded if his mother wasn't.

    Re: Faulty math...

    Maybe his momma was one of those rare Tennessee Hebrew Cherokees, they all "look " white and claim to be full-bloods.

    Re: Faulty math...

    yep fullblooded pizzants or maybe it was raised by trolls

    Re: Faulty math...

    Local Chikamakas and white neighbors work the coal mines ranging from Harlan KY
    down to Coal City GA. This kept them out of the sun so their features would
    diminish.

    Re: Faulty math...

    They must have been mining "European" coal and it got into their bloodstream. It changed their bone structure, skin, eyes, hair and even their DNA.
    Someone should have that coal tested. Radical Muslim terrorists could be eating it to disguise themselves as blonde haired, blue eyed citizens.
    This statement is no more stupid than the claim of working in any enviroment changing one's racial characteristics.
    AND HONESTLY, NONE of us has heard any excuses from the Cumberland County Hebrew-Kees as to why their DNA samples all came back as being of Northern European decent... Are we to pretend we didn't hear that statement? Are we supposed to support these people as Native Americans on what claim?

    Unless you have a job that where it is required that you work out doors your statement makes little sense. I would estimate that 75 to 80 % for this countries work force work in-doors..ie out of the sun. Spending time in the sun would only effect the tanning of ones skin tone .....nothing more. Features do not diminish by lack of sun or too much sun. If what you say were true. Every wannabe in the country would be in a tanning bed or laying out in the sun trying to look like an Indian.

    I thought they were!

    Oh, and the same guy said his hair was prematurely white like Indians--funny thing--I've never noticed that trait among Eastern Cherokees--black hair tends to hang in there well into a person's 60s on most people.

    They must be from Tennessee or they've been drinking water from Tennessee 'cause folks here in Tennessee have had a problem with the math taught to the rest of the planet for some years now!! In Tennessee, nothing adds up like it's supposed to - and like it would/should anywhere else!
