His Crow name was "High Bird," and he recalled listening as a child to stories about the Battle of Little Bighorn from those who were there, including his grandmother's brother, White Man Runs Him, a scout for Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer.

...little on the nose, there, eh, Crow tribe?

You know what being called an apple means?

Red on the outside, white in the inside.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who was all "I wanna know THAT story."


It's a plains native way of saying they're an uncle Tom.  No real story, just classic native humour.

Native culture at its heart is pure light hearted teasing.  This being the more extreme case of actually insulting someone.  Thee name doesn't imply Ill will towards him, just their lack of respect.

Lol

If we ever get rid of Trump, all his actions should be nullified. That won't happen, of course; after all, Americans put up statues honoring traitors to the country.

\because Americans are stupid


Every single day with whatever new thing happens I'm thinking welp, add that to the list of things that needs to be undone. If, not when, but if we actually get the farkstains out of there in January it will take a full 8 years to fix maybe half of this garbage.

Is the Native American guy in the back culturally appropriating a cowboy hat?


Just like they appropriated horseback riding.

I have a letter from Captain Yates, just before going to Little Bighorn (written at Rosebud), in which he says to his brother-in-law, "Sheeit, I don't think this is a good idea."

Rather, let's not. I considered that a second, but I was programmed with an aversion to Billy Joel, even though he is the true heir of Tin Pan Alley. As for Bond, how about an Ipcress File redux, instead? Bring back Harry Palmer.

/that's as far as I'll go with that. //I'm far more capable of boredom and miscommunication than this.

Trump cracks Elizabeth Warren Pocahontas "jokes" when Native Americans visit the White House. Really.
