WHITE SUPREMACIST POSITIVE IMAGERY IN AMERICA, IN CONFEDERATE FLAGS AND U.S. CURRENCY! BIZARRE AMERICAN HISTORY AND MY PERSONAL INTERESTS IN IT!

America is currently embroiled in a controversy over the White Supremacist ‘Confederate flag’; but ‘Confederate Flag’ symbols are not the only symbols of White Supremacists in America. One need only look at the symbols on American currency, and the recent effort to picture some female American heroes on our currency, replacing male heroes with female heroines.

But of course; I am thinking of the American White Supremacist President Andrew Jackson who is glorified by having his picture on the U.S. $20 bill.

President Jackson was responsible for the removal of Cherokee ‘Native Americans’ from Tennessee, North Carolina, and other States in what is known in history (not folklore) as the “Trail of Tears”. The “Trail of Tears” was a catastrophic reality.

ANDREW JACKSON 20 BILL
U.S. TWENTY DOLLAR BILL

Personally, I have an interest in President Jackson being glorified on the twenty dollar bill; to wit, my own great-great-grandfather, Elias Walker (who was part Cherokee and considered Cherokee), and his family were not in the Trail of Tears specifically because he escaped and moved our family to Illinois to avoid it.

Unfortunately several years later, when Elias returned to Tennessee to take care of unfinished business, he was assassinated because he was part Cherokee and part White; the assassin was never apprehended. Elias was identified by a check on his person for his service in the Tennessee militia fighting in “Indian Wars” and the War of 1812.

Ironically, my great-great-grandfather Elias’ father, fought on the right side (American) in the Revolutionary War of 1776. His female progeny (and consequently mine) are therefore eligible for membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution; but, the Walker family were not allowed to reside in White Supremacist Tennessee because they were considered Native Americans.

The racial hatred for the Native Americans early in American history was perhaps even more tragic than even racial hatred for African Americans today; as exemplified in the “Charleston Massacre”. Even more ironic, many Cherokee Native Americans owned African slaves at that time of the trail of tears and Jackson’s Native American removal from Tennessee. This is all actual bizarre American history, and not folklore.

It would appear even more ironic, that the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma (a result of the “Trail of Tears”, under Cherokee Confederate Brigadier General Stand Watie fought for the Confederacy during the American Civil War.

“What fools these mortals be.”
