“As of now, the McGhee’s have received very little financial or community assistance to help them support these children. In the past, multiple families have been showered with diapers and formula and other baby necessities, but this couple has not experienced that treatment. According to the Columbus Post-Dispatch, Ohio State University President E. Gordon Gee sent six Buckeyes onesies, and the Columbus City Council gave the McGhee’s a certificate honoring the city’s first set of sextuplets. A fund set up at Chase bank after the babies’ birth remained empty as of the beginning of this month.”
“Native American studies professor Lloyd Lee says these detractors are misinterpreting the story: ‘The interpretation is that women can’t lead, that it creates confusion and mess. When in fact it’s not meant that way at all.’ And her opponent Ben Shelly says gender shouldn’t be a campaign issue: ‘Is she or he qualified to be a leader? This is not a question of gender, it’s a question of leadership.’ Still, sexism remains an issue for women seeking tribal offices (as it does for women running for office in general). Says Cecilia Fire Thunder, the first female president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe of South Dakota, ‘White women face a glass ceiling. Indian women face a buckskin ceiling.’”
“The attacks that police are investigating have all taken place in the past year and have all been aimed at people who look as though they might be immigrants. Of those 19 shootings, one person has been killed and eight have been injured.“Many fear the shootings could be the work of one man.“‘He’s putting fear in all of us who are not Swedish,’ says 27-year-old Jamal Yusuf, who came to Sweden in 1992 from Somalia.“‘If you’re not blond, if you’re not an original Swedish person, if you’re an immigrant like me, that’s it for you.’”
