Wright said that in the 55 years she has lived in Rapid City, she has experienced discrimination at its worst. She said many people feel powerless to do anything about racism and the recent crimes against Native Americans here, but they are wrong.
"I don't think anything will change," she said. "Profiling against Native Americans runs deep."
Dolly Red Elk agreed. "I have lived in Rapid City for 35 years and have had experiences with racism all my life," she said.
Red Elk's brother was the victim of crime 26 years ago when he was run down and killed by a car along Interstate 90 near Sturgis. "They pulled over and opened the door deliberately so that they would hit him," she said, adding that those responsible only served six months in jail. "It's time to start seeing us as human beings, because we are," she said. "We deserve respect. We're the keepers of the Black Hills."
"I figure it's something I'll have to put up with the rest of my life," Water, an Oglala Lakota College student said. "But I will live and die here. My people need me."

Among other things, members of the Sweden Democrats who hold elected office said that immigrants aren’t loyal, don’t want to pay taxes, and would rather take black-market jobs.
“Those who come from these countries, they’re pretty raw and real savages… [laughter]…They are, it’s in their nature,” one elected official could be heard saying on SR’s tape.
At another meeting, immigrants are compared with dogs.
“Did you know that an immigrant who comes to Sweden from countries like Afghanistan and Africa sometimes come with 2,000 parasites in their body. Not ever our dogs have that many, and they have to sit in quarantine…,” said a Sweden Democrat representative, prompting several at the meeting to burst into laughter.
In other excerpts from the programme, party members claim that Muslims don’t eat pork because they have sex with pigs and that Muslim women wear burqas to hide the fact that they are beaten by their husbands.
