Did you SERIOUSLY just say "Whites"? This country is pretty equal opportunity if you ask me, you shouldn't hold it against an entrepreneur for making money, no matter what their race may be. EVERY race has EVERY opportunity to cash in if they are so inclined to do so.

Last time I checked, Ketchikan Indian Community (KIC) offers all sorts of assistance programs for people of a native culture, as my child benefits from some of these programs. Sealaska benefits many native Alaskans.

You don't see me out there having a tantrum because I don't think I'm getting enough from the white man. KIC states in their job listings "Native Preference Applies". I don't see any white preference listed on any job boards. Maybe make a way for yourself instead of insisting someone else hand it to you.
