Re: anyone else APPRECIATE chakotay's ethnic bits?

In keeping with promoting Star Trek's vision of a radical egalitarian future, I would have appreciated having a character like Chakotay from an oppressed culture... if they had actually bothered to have him be from an oppressed culture. Having him be from the Magic Space Indians does not count. That just continues to perpetuate the invisibility and oppression of Native Americans.
