|DYonvadisi on Rootsweb|
On Rootsweb, "D Yonvadisi" claims to have been born in Snowbird and to have lived in Cherokee for 68 years. DYonvadisi writes an extensive rant regarding how "he" has been discriminated against for being an Indian. In this post, the impostors sound more like they are physically describing Diamond Brown Jr.'s elderly FATHER Diamond Brown Sr. who is in his late 60's, and does not know how to operate a computer either. Nether Brown, father or son, teach, chat, or post on-line!!!! Diamond Brown Sr. does not "travel the country teaching" either, he was a cop for 30 years...his son Diamond Jr. is the educator.

"I was born in the Snowbird community and I currently live in the Painttown community here in Cherokee. I am 68 years old and in all of my years, I do not think things have changed as far as attitudes. I remember being a young boy and the tourists making comments as to our skin color and it is usually referred to as red."
"I am married to a white woman, she can go in by herself and be treated wonderful. If she is with me well, she heard phrases like "prarie ni**er", "red ni**er" and so on."
"We as a nation of Cherokee people"
