Now what the fuck is so godawful about the FACT that the Indians named the colored regiment the 'Buffalo Soldiers' because of their hair?
And while we're at it, their regimental colors said 'U.S. Colored Troops' on it.
If you're afraid to learn from history you'll repeat it.
Tell it like it is.
Incidentally, the Buffalo Soldiers fought well alongside me at Kettle Hill. Them guys can drink out of my canteen anytime.
Yes to all of that. TR may hve owed his bully ass to the troopers that advanced in order up that hill while his rabble was pinned down.
