I guess it is unavoidable...any conversation about Forrest, no matter how it starts(in this case his merits as a combat officer), always seems to end with Fort Pillow or some controversial aspect of his personality-or about race relations.

Unfortunate, really... and its getting to be as polarized as it was in 1865.In many places simply stating admiration for any confederate general automatically places one in the racist bigot category.
