Description: 

"Telling you, 'Don't drink too much.' Look at your own self. TV send out the signal. The Indian will send you a signal and you can pick it up.

"You know, Indians love whisky, and when he got the taste of the alcohol he might want to fight the world. Sometimes they got the Indian drunk to get what they wanted from him. The Indian knew he couldn't trust the white man's promises. If the Indians had treaty with the black man they never would have went to war." —Rev. George Kornegay
