Probably because they don't care about the ethnicity of the casinos'
owners, just "dat sumbuddy's movin' in on ouah turf".

On the other hand, the Mashantucket Pequots are planning to put
in a gigantic amusement park on their land in CT. Land they've
bought with casino money. I believe they're working with some
park chain (Great Adventure? Paramount?)

There's something I like about these casinos. Whites got
land for a handful of beads. The Indians are getting land
from whites for *pictures* of two lemons and a bar. ;)
