The reason the White man says Native Americans (and every other race) are freeloaders is . . . So they can pretend they are downtrodden. It gives them an opportunity to play the "Race Card" so they can pretend to be a "Victim".
Woe is me, why does the White man have to work so hard yet all the minorities get everything free. They should be the ones working so the White man doesn't have to, after all that's how this country was built.
None of the minorities even come close to getting what is handed out to the White man. Any program/service a minority gets are modeled after the programs/services available to the white man. It doesn't work the other way around.
Native Americans have been supporting the White man ever since they set foot on this continent. Here is a a sample of the "2010 HANDOUTS" Native Americans gave the White man.
