  “Sometimes we don’t look. We don’t much look.” ~ Buck Cannon, The High Chaparral TV Series ~ Buck was referring to the positive things he had recently learned about the American Indian, aside from the conflicts of the time. If we judge other humans based on ethnicity, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, political differences, general appearances, disabilities, or some other illegitimate reason, then we are not looking much.
