- Dec 30, 2002I find this article is, even to an ametuer student of TR, an offensive
revision of history through non contextual quotes.
To me, the worst apprasial of history, is in the taking facts out of context
and judging older times through modern prejudices and mores. While he made
such statements as these, he also was the first President to invite a black
man to the White House. Dispite detrimental comments on some black
cavalrymen in Cuba, he also was an admirer of the 9th and 10th cavelry. His
views on race were quite progressive for his time.
I know TR was not a perfect man, but there is hardly a better role model
for current politicians than TR.
This article is sensational "clap-trap". Sorry, it got my dander up!
I am sure there are many in the group who can better answer this editorial
than I, and I would like to hear of any letters to the editor of the
Sun-Times which get sent.
