Opposing sovereignty = racist

Is opposing sovereignty racism?

Montana rights activist says it isTravis McAdam of the Montana Human Rights Network said opposing tribal sovereignty is racist because it "seeks to limit legally-established rights of an ethnic group united by common history, tradition and culture."

"If we used that same definition and applied it to African-Americans, would it be racist? Yes," McAdam said. "If a group wanted to remove African Americans from the Civil Rights Act, people would say it's racist."
