As an African descended person with a smidgen of Cherokee/Muscogee blood I feel no more obligated to be Indian than your son David feels obligated to be Italian.
I respect your sonís sovereign right to be who he says he is, a Cherokee with a smidgen of Italian blood. Please allow some of us black folks that same sovereign right.
I leave others to speak for their selves.
And Tee. Chuck, it seems to me, writes words the way Bird, Miles, and Monk played musical notes; i.e., in a syncopated way. But I guess itís a Black thang. Quiet as it's kept you haven't much room for checking one's writing style.
Iím feeling you Chuck.
