South Dakota commits shocking genocide against Native Americans Â» peoplesworld The best approach to this crime against humanity is by the following initial checklist: 1. Over 700 American Indian children are removed by South Dakota state officials from their homes every year. 2. These hundreds are sent to white foster homes or group homes. 3. Many are adopted by white families. 4. Indian children account for 13.8 percent of the state's child population, yet they represent 56.3 percent of the foster care population. 5. Of the hundreds of Native children in foster care in 2011, 87 percent were placed in non-Indian homes while Native foster homes went empty. 6. Because of its targeting Native children, South Dakota is currently removing children from their families at a higher rate than the vast majority of other states in the U.S. 7. Once removed, the state's courts routinely keep Indian children from even seeing their families for at least 60 days. 8. The state's Department of Social Services (DSS) workers warn Native children that if they become emotional during a visit with their parents, the visits will be discontinued (this is incredible!). @W.G.Ewald Comments at the end of the thread are most shocking and exposes American hipocracy.
