08/09/10 - An Indian-American Reader Says We`re Biased; James Fulford Replies

From: "Devin Adams" (email him )

Re: Thanksgiving: The National Question Footnote, et cetera]

I happened upon your site through a link my friend sent me. Now I am not outright declaring your site as a subversive racist hate site, but look, I am just starting with this author you sponsor, James Fulford.

 I don`t know him—I have not read everything he has written—but out of the multiple articles I have read of his, I do believe that there is enough racist material and otherwise ignorant info that he has supplied in his articles that he should either be removed all together or he should re-write everything that has anything that is not fact-based.

He has the nerve to say that you can find out credible info on NATIVE AMERICANS from watching old western videos: "Of course, Native American history has a darker side as well. Scalpings, cannibalism, torture, et cetera. See any Western movie made before 1967. "[Thanksgiving: The National Question Footnote]

Unless this happened to be an actual source that is national-credited or government-credited, then THAT IS BOGUS BULLSH*T. I am not saying that there are not dark sides to my people`s past, but stating that old western movies is a credible way to see it isn`t right. Those movies where made in an era where there was still a lot of racism towards Native Americans, made from a viewpoint that was not exactly nice and truthful about Native American tradition. So, yeah, read up on your facts.

I am not against your site—all the more power to you and anyone who wants to get out what they feel is right, hey,  it`s the beauty of the freedom of speech. But, look, you need to have your writers write facts, not fiction.  

I am of mixed NATIVE AMERICAN and IRISH blood. I myself am a NATIVE AMERICAN rights activist and it would be appreciated if such info was removed from your articles. Such ignorant and racial slanderizing should never be permitted.

James Fulford writes: The link on cannibalism, above, actually does cite a "government credited" source on pre-Columbian cannibalism —the Voice of America. I am aware that movies are fiction, but I could equally have said "see any American history book written before 1950". And either a John Ford movie or a pre-political correctness textbook will provide a better picture of Indian massacres and atrocities than Dances With Wolves or the textbooks now in schools.

Once again, we have a writer who thinks that anything that he calls "racist" will be removed from our site, along with its author (me.) Of course, it`s a fact that the MSM operates this way, and we`ve seen people fired as result of pressure like this.
