I don't know what else to say about it. I am living where they once used to live- these same Cherokees. The white man did the Cherokees particularly wrong, IMO, because the Cherokees bent over backwards to show that they were civilized and could live exactly the same as their white neighbors, and STILL they were kicked out. The roots of the whole mess was racist, and I really don't feel like I can pass judgement on them because I know that they know what it is.
