"They say that the law is getting even more enlightened and liberal and color-blind. That is bullshit. In 1884 the first Crow Dog won his case before the Supreme Court which, under the 1868 treaty, ruled that the government had no jurisdiction on the Sioux reservations. Almost a hundred years later the courts ruled against us on the same question.
The thing to keep in mind is that laws are framed by those who happen to be in power for the purpose of keeping them in power. That goes for the U.S.A. as well as for Russia or any other country in the world.””
