There was never anything political, biased, or racist about the games we played as kids. We did what we saw on the huge Silver Screen as a way of having fun - and learning how to interact with others.

I'm a white American and, as a kid, myself and other neighborhood children like to play "Cowboys & Indians". We lived in the country, right next to a forest, which was a GREAT place to grow up with lots of room to play, hunt, fish, swim, etc. Anyway, we actually had toy, Indian headdresses with feathers, toy tomahawks and bows and arrows with harmless, plastic arrows, except for getting poked in the eye ;), of course.

Each of us wanted to be an "Indian" and we had to take turns being the boring Cowboys. Why did we like being the Indians? Because they were cool! In our minds, they were like stealthy ninjas that could easily and quickly glide through the forest without making a sound. But when they wanted, they could whistle to one another like a bird. Also, they used bows and arrows, which were also cool. Then, their feathers and "war paint" was also really neat. For us, they were great warriors and we all wanted to be one of those, lol.

Times have changed.

Now, any non-native American person that would dress up as an "Indian" would be accused of "cultural appropriation" and branded a racist.

Liberalism destroys everything, including "Cowboys & Indians".

Aye, the "silver screen", the comic books and most influentially the Boob Tube. We did what they told us, and that's why we have rampant gun violence now. Chickens came home to roost.

I suspect that one in the picture was made in a very wonderful place in Germany. But the sound of it gives you cancer.
