Here’s what I sent to Leonard Pitts of Miami Herald


Could you please address the following questions in an upcoming column: "Should Buffalo Soldiers, the 9th and 10th United States Cavalry, made up of black soldiers, be honored or condemned for their service in the Plains Indian Wars? Since the Buffalo Soldiers killed and raped Native Americans while waving the American flag, should these black men be considered black Nazis? Should the descendants of Buffalo Soldiers hold their heads in shame rather than be honored that their ancestors fought under the American flag – the same flag flown by the Ku Klux Klan for more than 100 years?
