There's no revisionist history in my comics, just history. I'm not sure how you'd know one way or the other, since you haven't read them.
I presume you mean "got" as in "cheated and stole." Yes, "we got the trophy"...by committing genocide against the Indians. I'm not sure what you mean by "revisionist history," but America's cruel and inhuman treatment of its Native people is standard history in most textbooks.
Hitler got the trophy against the Jews too, but I wouldn't brag about it. Only a (stereo)typical Westerner would think "Winning is everything."
FYI, Native Americans are one of the fastest-growing groups in the country. They're exercising their Constitution-based sovereignty, earning billions from casinos, and using the money to renew their cultures and languages.
If life is a football game and "we" got the trophy, that was a season or two ago. This is a new season and the playing field is more level than ever. So let the games begin!
P.S. This correspondent's e-mail address began with "red_ford_truck." Why am I not surprised?
