It's a stupid toy from a stupid movie

Well I’m certainly glad I grabbed my McDonald’s Happy Meal General Custer toys before they are pulled from stores. Who knows, maybe the Feds will go door to door to collect these hell spawn of evil. Ok I’m just kidding (maybe) about the Feds rounding them up in these politically correct times. Some people were offended that McDonald’s included General George Armstrong Custer in their “Battle of The Smithsonian” kid’s Happy Meals. McDonald’s has been called racist over the incident and a whole lot worse. I fail to see how a toy of a Civil War general on a motorcycle is racist, especially if you’ve seen the movie. General Custer comes off as a buffoon, a typical Hollywood post Viet Nam War Custer.

There are plenty of toys, movies, TV programs, books and more that offend me. I have a Serbian father (ever see the goofy piece of trash “Behind Enemy Lines”?), Irish and Shawnee mother. Each portion of my ethnic mix is often portrayed in a manner that is frequently not positive in media. I don’t make a big stink about it. I try to educate people about what is incorrect, in my opinion, without sounding like a sniveling whiney-butt. My opinion about a perceived transgression doesn’t mean it’s always correct.

I’m really sick of the Whites posting on their blogs about how horrible it is to include the General Custer toy because it’s racist. If the toy offends you, try to really help out an Indian in need, Lord knows there are plenty. Indians have never gotten what the government has promised them for stealing their lands and destroying their way of life. Donate time and money, both are desperately needed. If you really want to show how committed you are, deed over your home to a nearby Nation and letting them hang onto the property or sell it. If not, you are just as guilty as McDonald’s. I’ve put my money where my mouth is. I donate time, money, and one of my houses will be deeded over when my wife and I expire.
