Yeagley's new book

Bad Eagle:  The Rantings of a Conservative Comanche (Paperback)From this author's perspective, Yeagley's blog predominantly relies upon Yeagley's misperceived impression that he labels American Indian "failure," which probably accounts for his general unpopularity within Indian Country. Yeagley cannot write authentically about people he does not really understand, namely American Indians.

If I were to give my overall assessment of his position, it would be similar to the sinking ship analogy. In Yeagley's world, Indians are supposedly sunken already if not sinking with the ship (his writings about the "failure" of "Indian men" confirms this observation). So, in response to a misperceived Indian `failure,' Yeagley has decided to jump ship and head for the frothy shores of white supremacy, where he abandons the dying concerns of old Indian Country in favor of squatting in the white wing of the shiny city upon a hill. So rather than supporting the struggles of American Indians to write their own histories and correct degrading stereotypes, Yeagley attempts to actually champion those negative stereotypes from the bleached sands of his own perceived white superiority.

Linking David Yeagley to Rattus Norvegicus is being unfair to R. Norvegicus. Instead, it should be said that "loose CDIBs sink ships..."
