I'm annoyed by the question posed by letter writer Teri Nilson Baird about Virginia Dare's immigration status.
I have Cherokee blood (my maternal great grandmother was Cherokee) and my sister is married to an Osage Indian. When I get similar questions from open-border liberals, I reply that, being part Indian, it is a certainty that my ancestors lost their land to the white man.
As an example, I point to the Trail of Tears when the U.S. government relocated the Cherokee from their homelands to Indian Territory in present day Oklahoma.
I then ask if they're willing to return their own property to its "rightful owners" and if so I suggest they go find an Indian to sign over their land and apologize.
I usually get a mumble or a blank stare.
The silly question about Virginia Dare is asked by silly people like Baird.
Roberts lives in Southern California.
