What "race war"?

The History Channel is running a promo for yet another revisionist presentation on the Battle of the Little Big Horn (formerly known as Custer's Last Stand). Only this time, it's billed as Custer and his men riding into "the bloodiest race war America has ever known".


Being an ardent student of history, we have never heard of race ever being a factor in the BLBH. It was all about nothing more than settling the West and Manifest Destiny. When did race enter the picture? No doubt when the politically correct crowd decided that since Custer was a dead white male (disregarding the fact that he was an arrogant idiot), it couldn't possibly have been about anything other than race.

This is what happens when the products of government schools are in charge.
