No, I don't have a "beef" and I don't lose sleep over it. I'm just commenting on the fact that hunting and fishing licenses, valid everywhere in the state, are sold at a deeply discounted price to some people solely based on race.
Two large tribal governments negotiated a deal with the state. Various organizations negotiate better prices for their members every day.
We also have access to "free" healthcare via the Indian Health Service as tribal members.
We've been told for so long that doing so is wrong.
Doing what? Treating people different based on race?
What if it were flipped an a member of the tribe had to pay 7 times more for the same license as a non-tribal member?
Then I'd imagine those that wanted to pay the same rates for licenses as others would do so and move on . . . I did for years before the compact.
A race based discount is entirely different than giving a discount to the elderly or disabled veterans. Surely you can see the logic of that discussion.
You seemed to initially have a problem (and seem to still have one in this very post) about the cost. My comment was simply to point out that all sorts of folks get discounts for one reason or another.
