Sometimes my gra ndfather would talk to me about his days growing up.� Similar to Terrell’s observation about those “noble” pioneers, my grandfather said that he grew up in ignorant and unenlightened times.� He grew up with a rifle in his hand, and he and his friends “shot at anything that moved.”� That was a couple generations after the local natives had been exterminated, so imagine how trigger-happy they were in 1870 versus 1915.� If somebody was mentally retarded or a little on the unintelligent side, the entire community would mercilessly make that person the butt of all jokes and pranks, and everybody laughed mean-spiritedly at their affliction.� My grandfather also enjoyed telling stories about funny or heartwarming events from those days, but he did not have a very large repertoire of such tales, and I heard the same stories repeatedly.� When my grandfather would talk about those days and concluded with one of his more trenchant observations, I would say, “Ah, Grandpa, those good old days!” and he once responded with, “I don’t know what was good about them.”� I was saddened with his passing in 1996.� He was my last living grandparent, and I was blessed to have known him. [223] See Ralph Andrist’s The Long Death, pp. 167-169.� The corruption and fraud in the BIA is not controversial.� One cannot read about the dispossession of Native Americans during the 19th century without encountering numerous accounts of BIA malfeasance.� See Dee Brown’s Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee and Angie Debo’s And Still the Waters Run.� [224] See Angie Debo’s And Still the Waters Run, pp. 21-22. [225] See Ward Churchill’s Since Predator Came, p. 34. [226] See Ronald Wright’s Stolen Continents, pp. 153-154. [227] See David Stannard’s American Holocaust, p. 146.� See also his narrative of the Wounded Knee Massacre on pp., 126-127, and the book’s photo section.� See Dee Brown’s Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.� [228] There were some notable exceptions to the “exterminate the dancers” attitudes of whites.� George Catlin was a prototype of the character that Kevin Costner played in Dances with Wolves, studying and painting the Plains Indians during the 1830s.� Catlin appreciated the natives he saw, and understood some of the mystical significance of their dancing.� See Richard Drinnon’s Facing West.� Although there were some whites of the times that demonstrated respect and even some enlightenment in their dealings with the natives, there were very few of them.� [229] See David Stannard’s American Holocaust, p. 146. [230] See Dinnerstein’s Anti-Semitism in America.� American anti-Semitism never quite reached Europe’s genocidal levels, however.� [231] Mo st of those were in my vocabulary while growing up, and were rather casually applied to those groups.� They were also on the lips of all my friends, and often their parents, also including beaner, coon, gook, Jap, Nip, wop, slant, slope, Polack and Kraut.� And also, the epithets were not simply restricted to the color of somebody’s skin or the ethnic group they came from.� There are other terms worth mentioning: queer, faggot, dyke, and other terms to describe people who are not heterosexuals, including colorful language to describe all aspects of the sexual experience, anatomy, and body functions.� Those terms were also a standard part of conversation, and can be found today in certain circles, but there is a “counter PC” offensive taking place, seemingly trying to rehabilitate the attitudes, if not quite the terms, of the good old days. [232] See, for instance, Ellen Meiskins Wood’s The Pristine Culture of Capitalism, pp. 31-34. [233] See Richard Shenkman’s “I Love Paul Revere, Whether He Rode or Not", p. 2. [234] Because they were “mere Africans” who died under the Belgian lash, the first Western work that studies that holocaust is Adam Hochschild’s King Leopold’s Ghost, published in 1998. [235] See Mike Davis’s Late Victorian Holocausts, pp. 306-307. [236] See Iris Chang’s The Rape of Nanking. [237] See Richard Drinnon’s Facing West, p. 279.
