A native American (well he was born here, so doesn't that make him a native?) with the unlikely name of Jean-Louis Goldwater Bourgeois is returning his land in Manhattan to the Indians out of a sense of white guilt.
... Bourgeois, 76, an architectural historian and activist for Native American causes, is in the process of transferring the deed of his $4 million, landmarked West Village house to a nonprofit controlled by the Lenape tribe, the original Manhattanites.
“I have a romance with the history of the city, and I have been generally appalled that the land that the city is on has been taken by whites,” he told The Post.
“This building is the trophy from major theft. It disgusts me.”
He said he feels “rage against what whites have done and some guilt, no, a lot of guilt, that I have profited from this major theft. The right thing to do is to return it.”
Wouldn't it be delicious fun if the social justice warriors came home for the holidays to discover that their parents had given their house back to the original owners? And can you imagine - I say, can you imagine, if every single white-guilted American, from Manhattan to Palo Alto, did the same thing? The indians could truly exercise the sovereignty granted them by the United States so long ago, and New Yorkers and Californians would be free to live as tenants of the people they so admire.
And there would be a great rejoicing throughout the land.
