I consider myself to be a white male, my maternal grandmother was an American Indian, I have a degree of Indian blood, and I am an enrolled member of The Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California. Everybody should get off the racial crap.

But, I must delve into the "racial crap" a moment more to brag about my blood! You are an Indian but I, in small part, am a Black Person! Yes, itÂ´s true, in spite of what the fetching photo at left indicates. I pass. And if anybody wants to call me on it, feel free to buy a book, available from Amazon, about my beloved, black ancestor, Amanda America Dickson.
Woman of Color, Daughter of Privilege: Amanda America Dickson, 1849-1893, published in 1995 by the University of Georgia Press.
