Galareka Harrison is a Navajo Indian girl who was convicted of stabbing her college roommate (also a Navajo Indian) 23 times,. Of course, none of the headlines in the stabbing case mention this basic fact, but since it's an important part of the story, (both girls lived on the reservation when not at college) they mention it inside the story, referring to her, however, not as an Indian or a Native American but as a "Navajo tribal member," which is a new euphemism on me.

She was also found guilty of three counts of forgery and one count of identity theft.After court recessed, she gave a wan smile, stood up and put on a black coat before being led out of the courtroom by jailers.[More]

NMSU faculty members charge racial discrimination By HEATHER CLARK Associated Press Writer Article Launched: 09/19/2008 03:34:57 PM MDT

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.–Four current and former New Mexico State University faculty members and a graduate student have filed a lawsuit in federal court charging university administrators with racial discrimination and unfair professional retaliation.

Four plaintiffs allege they were racially and sexually discriminated against in the university's Department of Health Science and then lost their positions or were denied promotions after they complained about the problems, the 37-page complaint said.

The plaintiffs include faculty members Satya Rao, who is East Indian; former faculty members Yelena Bird, who is black, and her husband, John Moraros, who is of Greek and Hispanic descent; and graduate student Freedom Cheteni, who is from Zimbabwe. [More]

Freedom Cheteni is also black, but they don't say that. Someone who wasn't up on geography and tribal names might think that Mr. Cheteni was being discriminated against because he was a foreigner. The most important thing about Zimbabwe/Rhodesia is the white/black conflict, and they should say which he is.
