First of all, he had zero thought for the Native Americans when he made that statement. It was purely about being traditionally white in the 1960's. We do not live in the 1900's anymore!! Let alone the 1960's!

The so-called "traditional family" is no longer the norm, and it shouldn't be.

I am White/Native American, I have a "traditional family", but I absolutely believe in live and let live.

Take Care,
Kathy

I think over the years we've become more American then ever. When we have the open doors that when our country thrives. I'm a shamed of Glenn Beck and his goons.

I'm white and I think that statement is complete crap.

regarding the traditional America statement by Beck - I saw an interesting tweet:
Wonder what the Native Americans think of that statement?
