As has been widely reported, several members of Senator Scott Brown's staff were "seen in a new video shouting war whoops and performing tomahawk chops in an apparent reference to Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren’s claims of Native American heritage." ( http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/2012/09/25/mass-gop-sen-brown-disavows-tomahawk-chop-video/7DZII5ydRPbDsU580tg6VN/story.html )

This outright racist behavior of US Senate Staff can not be tolerated. If Senator Brown has any regard for decency he should ask each of these government staff members to resign.

      Racist behavior of US Senate Staff deserves more than a slap on the wrist.

      According to a NYT report ( http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/26/cherokee-chief-demands-scott-brown-apologize-for-supporters-actions/ ) "Senator Brown has spoken to his entire staff – including the individuals involved in this unacceptable behavior – and issued them their one and only warning that this type of conduct will not be tolerated."

      Because I'm Metis and proud of my native heritage. Maybe some would think I don't look like Indian either. There is no one "look" this is racist and stupid remark.

      Racism should NEVER be tolerated! The people involved in Scott Brown's campaign should be ashamed for their behavior and need to realize the world is watching.

      I despise racists. No employers would tolerate racist behavior from their employees. Brown & his team need to be fired!

      Because I work with Native's every day, who are wonderful, warm people, and this racism OFFENDS ME GREATLY.

      This is MY Senator and he used to represent my smaller district when I lived in Millis. I am appalled at the behavior of his staff and how little he has done to stop this sort of behavior from his supporters and his staff.

      No one who officially represents a candidate or elected official should ever behave in this overtly racist manner and they should absolutely NOT be kept on staff! They need to be publicly dismissed as soon as possible.
