They gave us tobacco. We gave them booze. I call it even.
There is no more pathetic group example of puerile ancestor-worship and perpetual aggrievement than American Indians who make a profession of it.
(They are not “Native Americans” or “First Nations,” since proof continues to mount that they were neither native to America nor the first to arrive there.)
Professional Indians stand out as the people who have received the most in amends and demonstrate the least appreciation for it.
