Jean N. Bigelow – Letter to the Editor

The January 16 article in the Commercial Dispatch about Mr. Lanier’s “offense” over the post office mural just about bordered on the absurd. Through history, art has been used to provide religious, social, and political commentary, record and reflect history, and inspire and provoke thought.
I am a native Mississippian who chose to stay and live my life here. I am proud to call Mississippi home. Yes, parts of our past are dark and shameful, but the greater part of our story is rich and something that should make us all proud.
We can only carry on to a brighter future if we both remember and forgive our past. That forgiveness includes acknowledging the offense then letting it go–on all sides. Mississippi has made great strides in racial reconcilation and we continue that work today. Perhaps Mr. Lanier should focus his energies on the “offenses” in his home state of Colorado and leave us to continue our work here.

    Mr. Lanier should talk, huh. Do they not teach Native American history in the Colorado school system?

    While Mr. Lanier’s homestate Colorado militiamen were carrying out massacres of women and children of native American ancestry, the Chocraw Nation, the African slaves and the Mississippi militia were in engaged in a life and death battle with Lincoln’s brigades of war criminals and “abolitionists.”

    Let us never forget that it was the so-called Great Emancipator, Abraham Lincoln, that authorized the Union Army’s ethnic cleansing of the Plains Indians and to whom belongs the ignominy of ordering the largest ever mass hangings in US History:The Mass hanging of 37 Dakota tribesmen in Mankato, Minnesota the day after Christmas, 1982. Lincoln’s mass hangings record still stands. And it was the North’s so-called war heroes, Sherman, Sheridan, Grant, Crook and Custer, etal. that left our prostrate Southland in ruins and went on to carry out the ethnic cleansing of Native Americans in the West. The Unionist of New York City built a monument to war criminal General Sherman and placed it in Central Park.

    Maybe Mr. Lanier “should get a life?”

    Seems that Mr.LaNier is still on his “highhorse, ” “tilting at windmills” back here in Mississippi.
    Mr. LaNier, a former Mississippi resident and now a resident of Colorado, should look inward to the histories and archives of the State militas of that region. If he wants to find bonafide bogeymen to whom he can point his crooked-finger, just a five- hour drive from Colorado up to South Dakota lies the most offensive mural in all the World–Mount Rushmore, a monument to Manifest Destiny and all the horrible consequences of that policy:broken treaties, ethnic cleansing, deliberate starvation and mass executions ordered by the Great Emanciptor himself, Abraham Lincoln. His willing Union generals were complicit in this shameful episode of American history. Oh, and let us not forget that the Buffalo Soldiers were willing participants in these Union Army massacres of the indigenous Americans . And, even today, black US servicemen under the auspicies of the newly formed Africom are carrying out covert actions and massacres of the indigenous peoples of Central Africa. They are lead by a willing black General “Kip” Ward and his willing Commander-In-Chief, Barack Obama.

    Mr. LaNier should read the book by Mississippi author, Allen Huffmann:Mississippi In Africa:The Saga of the Slaves of Prospect Hill Plantation and Their Legacy In Liberia Today. He might be surprised at what kind of social structure the Prospect Hill slaves established in Liberia. Surely he’ll be “offended” that the slaves from Prospect Hill chose to adopt the Greek Revival, Ante-Bellum architectural style of their former “masters” back in Claiborne County, Mississippi.

    I defer to the experts, but I think that the “Cowtail on the Mule” art critque is the result of shaving the tail when working draft mules in cocklebur/beggarweed-infested cotton fields.

    There is a tuft of hair at the end of the tail that is left to swat-off flies.
