    My name is John Whiteman, which has for the last eighty or so years, been pronounce "Whitman".

    This is crap.

    I went to the Vanguard Coffee Shop in Westport in Kansas City, Missouri when I was a kid and heard Brewer and Shipley publicly perform this song for the first time ever.

    The name "Whiteman" has been pronounced "Whitman" because a Great Uncle chose to deny his heritage.

    To that I now say, "Buffalo shit!"

    Henceforth, I shall be what I should have been from the start:

    John White Man.

    See, Grandma, who was born on the Res, liked this Kraut guy and well......

    ..you know......

    Here is why:
