This Nucular World: Cowboys & Arabs

How did Jim Beckwourth deal with the lack of access to half-n-half? Indeed...was it because he WAS half and half? And what would he say about our occupation of Iraq? Would he, like Gore Vidal, think that the architects would be hung from trees were they to be judged by our founding fathers?

What if, instead of mistaking Native-Americans for Indians, we had mistook them for Arabs? Cowboys and Arabs...sounds all too familiar these days.

And what would Beckwourth have to say out Republicans and Democrats, Liberals and Conservatives, Greens and Libertarians? What of, say, Israel and Palestine? Blacks and Whites? Men and Women? Boys and Girls? Surely he could shed light on Great Britain, France, Africa... Maybe enlighten us about the Leonardo code, desposyni, Jesus and Mary Magdalene, and the strange reappearance of the nuculus within this sentence. I wouldn't put it past him.

Why DID Jim Beckwourth understate his own story?
