Magaska: Rapid City Journal driving racism

James Swan is the founder of the United Urban Warrior Society: his protest of a Lee newspaper spotlights Rapid City's rank legacy of hatred. In June, 2011, Swan led a successful campaign to stop oil drilling near Bear Butte (Mato Paha).

Evelyn Red Lodge of Native Sun News reports at indianz:
Swan was spurred to action while participating in a recent protest of Rapid City Journal policies considered anti-Native American. The protest took place in front of the Journal’s downtown building. Swan is confident he will gain support from area organizations and community members. He also asks that anyone who feels they have been discriminated against by the Rapid City Journal and those who want to offer support contact him at (605) 381-8612 or unitedurbanwarriorsociety@yahoo.com.
This action comes on the heels of the announcement that a former RCJ publisher and Spearditch businessman has received an award from industry rag, Editor and Publisher®.

The Billings Gazette has recently been conferred with three awards from Lee Enterprises for outstanding displays of earth hatred under the guise of journalism.
