This is off topic.  

I read your response to the Cherokee elections and the comments.   I am sad because of the pain and hardship created by this election.  I wonder about the purpose and timing of the vote.   Logic may suggest that it is a cost-cutting measure painted in racism.  I don't know.

When was this subject thread started?

Go back and look!

Oh,  my...

Instead the reality is that the overall service record of the Buffalo Soldiers reveals no atrocities against indian folk and/or their very name was/is a tribute to those folk honored enemies...

We are and they were placed in an unconfortable position in the midst of people they had also had to cope and deal in the midst of:

And we can't know for certain if our compromises would've been any different than their's...

Let us be as able and willing to live with the ones we have to make in times like this too...

Much is said about the Buffalo Soldier but nothing is said about the Blacks and Indians in the
Confederate Army in the South.

Hello ChfRedhawk.

I agree; not much has been said about blacks and indians on the confederate side.   I read somewhere that all of "the five civilized tribes" EXCEPT The Seminole fought on the confederate side.  I read from that same source that there were some blacks that fought on the confederate side, their interest being their own participation in the slave trade[as slave owners/sellers].

Good morning,  Brother Redhawk...

But shall we continue to not see as potential allies the descendants of other folks ancestors whose choices today's folk shouldn't be held accountable for?

That has  also a stumbling when it's come to my dealings with Afro Canadians, i. e., whose ancestors sided with the British during the whites war of independence in this part of North America:

So I do try to teach by the way of my own personal example too...

First of all?

Both during the whites war of independence from Britain-- and later on that attempted cessation from the new nation their ancestors had fought to create-- by the descendants of others for the sake of advancing their pety self interests at the expense of some of our own:

Enslaved blacks were also promised their own freedom-- if they joined the British loyalists-- and/or others later on--if that fought for the confederate side...

Do keep in mind that the outcome of neither war was a given...

Also no telling what choices either of you wouldn've made-- had you lived way back in the day...

The flip side was that there were also other coloreds and blacks who were themselves slave owners:

In their cases they were just advancing their own petty self interests--just like the mixed bloods and the whites...

So let us try to make a clear distinction between what are unpopular compromises some were making--and  long before we were born-- as opposed to the mentality of the traitors in their midst --which continue to be a bad reflection of  why the Ward Connelys ad naseum plague us with via the here and now...

I. e.,   Ward Connely is a black millionaire,  and because of his reactionary politics he helped to unite voters in my state and who helped to end  affirmative action programs,  as regards this state's higher educational institutions,  etc.,  during the recent state election...

By the way:

Ward Connely resides in  the state of California,  and he isn't even a voter in the state of Michigan!!
