So yeah, that part is not pretty, and not cool.

So no need to call me "sir" - just don't blame me for the sins of my ancestors!

On the "plus" side, Geni also tells me I'm the 12th cousin of Muhammad Ali!

(You can get lost looking this stuff up...!)

Time to float like a butterfly, and sting like a bee!

Best wishes,

Many, if not most of the founding members here in N. America, pushed the indigenous natives further and further West, and committed genocide against them.

We, Can't take the blame, but we can do what is right to correct the wrongs...the powerful taking what they want away from the weaker.

Happening today too. As we are all witnessing.

Gordon
