This reminds of the Republican/corporate media response to Joseph Lowery's comments about Bush yesterday. They're not saying anything about "free speech" there. Instead he's accused of using Mrs. King's death for political purposes. It's only "free speech" when it expresses a pro-white/pro-USA/pro-corporate-power point of view.

It seems like Indo-European is just European by another name. When you look at the "Language Map", it is "Indo-European" until it becomes "Indo-Iranian." So, it would appear the report is saying Mr. Joseph is European, Native American, and Asian. Mr. Joseph has a mother who has lived all of her life as an African American. There is no reference to his father. America's system of naming ignores the nationality of "Native Americans" as is the case for Americans of unknown African ancestry.
