Winchester Homes Inc., a subsidiary of Weyehaeuser Trample on Native Peoples!

Winchester Homes Inc. based in Maryland and Virginia are a racist corporation and fall under the umbrella of an even bigger racist company known as Weyerhaeuser!
Below you will find links to Weyehaeuser's and their subsidiary Winchester Homes Inc. history of discrimination against minorities. These are just the ones I could find on the net. I can't imagine how many aren't even published.

They continue to treat Native People and other minorities as though we are their personal whipping posts.

Thomas Greywolf has been an inspiration to everyone he has contact with. We've sweated together, had ceremony and danced together in the circle. A Chickahominy & Mattaponi brother more dedicated to his people you will never find.

I pray to the Creator that Greywolf wins his case. I've known him for many years and a more honest and traditional brother you will never find.
You go get them Bro!

Don't let that Weyerhaeuser and Winchester Homes get away with treating indians anyway they wish.

Weyerhaeuser has a history of stepping on us Native people.
Read the book by Robert Wenkham, "The Great Pacific Rip-Off: Corporate Rape in the Far East", Chicago: Follett Publishing, to see how Weyerhaeuser ruined the entire indigenous culture of the Samarinda Tribe in Indonesia:  http://www.endgame.org/dtc/w.html

Or how about more recently when the tried to defraud the Haida and First Nations Peoples in Canada:

How about what that Weyerhaeuser did to the Muckleshoot Tribe:  http://www.washingtonfreepress.org/30/Quick.html

While we're at it, why don't we talk about how Winchester Homes has had their fair share of lawsuits and out of court settlements for not doing what's right and their racist ways:

African-American Families in a
Discrimination Suit Against Winchester Homes: half way down on the right side of the page-  link to www.lawyerscomm.org

It's time that Weyerhaeuser and Winchester Homes fess up to there racist ways.
I know in talking to Greywolf, He'd like nothing more than to get his case before a Baltimore Jury. I think that is the last thing Weyerhaeuser and Winchester Homes wants.
So fight those racist "Good Ole Boys" Greywolf and don't let them get away with stepping on you.

I have known Thomas Greywolf for some years now, and I have found him to be honest. I have found him to be always working for our People. He lets everyone know what is going on and where to write so we can change things. He is proud of his heritage and his people. I hope he wins this lawsuit, so big corporations as well as small businesses follow the rule of the law, for equal opportunity and devoid of racism in the workplace.
