Alaska must fight for equal treatment from feds

I grew up during the civil rights movement. Imagine, people of color wanting equal rights and protection under rule of law. Well, Alaska has been battling for equal rights under rule of law for decades. Since 1866 all Lower 48 states were allowed to establish roads on federal land that had been historically used as roads or paths to transport goods and people. Along came Alaska in 1959 and became a state of the union. Our equal rights are a joke, much as they were/are a joke for people of color. So Alaska must use tax dollars to sue the federal government (in their courts) to force equal treatment under rule of law. Don’t hold your breath. The federal government occupies 70 percent of our land in Alaska and we are always treated like the ugly step child.
