from the comments after the article:

Well well…If this doesn’t show Scott Brown’s true colors in regards to this issue of Native ancestry, I don’t know what does. If he was truly concerned about the Original People of Turtle Island, his staff would have never even entertained the idea of behaving in such an ignorant, disrespectful, and racist manner. If his staff had shown up wearing black face and making fun of people who are of African descent, and were mocking there original culture, there would be an uprising. So, apparently, in the U.S., the original Native People are not considered Human Beings like everyone else. How sad people feel this way, because if they only knew the truth, they would realize just how backwards and false their chosen and convenient beliefs really are. I am completely disgusted and offended. Words cannot describe how watching this video makes me feel. Just so all of you non-natives know, even though I am completely outraged by this, because of my cultural beliefs, I choose to love you anyway, even if I don’t like you a whole lot. And that’s because you are my brothers and sisters, whether you know it or not. Mziwi.

It is a shame I do not live in MA, but I would be knocking on doors up and down the state for Elizabeth Warren, Scott Brown should be ashamed of his crew who are behaving in a manner that does not supports freedom for all.
I would love to see this on one of our TV stations, but then anything in regards to NA’s is swepted under the rug.
When you think about it maybe Scott should be the color of his name Brown and see how his life is.
