For the last year or so I have been reading Louis L'amour books. My Mom picks 'em up at flea markets and such for me for a buck a piece. Well, she dropped me off a sack full a week ago and I found a Zane Grey in the mix. Published in 1936 first printing. It's a decent enough story about a cattle drive, a bad man, a gun slinger and a girl, just like most of 'em. What prompted this post is the vernacular. It's no wonder Zane Grey works aren't found in Barnes and Noble and such. Hell, you couldn't find one in a library I'd bet. No, there aint hardly a cuss word in there but the term "niggah" is used frequently when referencing the cook.
Where I'm headed with this is, our history is being covered up or distorted.
The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!
