2nd Wednesday cohost Jacqueline Keeler once again dissects the continuing colonization of Indigenous America

 

CNN has not let go of Rick Santorum as a commentator despite numerous Native organizations demanding he does so. This following his comments at a Christian Youth organization speech denigrating Native American culture and celebrating colonialism and Christian exceptionalism as the country's foundation. The former Republican Senator said, ''there isn't much Native American culture in American culture."
