: I like the idea that Col.Munro might have been an officer with some sensitivity.
His role is so touching... and yet, here is a food for thought... we hate Magua, right? We cheered Chingachgook for
executing him for the death of his son, right?
So, why did we not cheer Magua when he killed Gray Hair?
was Gray Hair not the one responsible for the death of
Selective empathy on our side! After all, Magua has been
shown as the bad guy, so who cares that his kids have been
killed by the father of our heroine? Oh ladies, we are prejudiced! Just consider and reconsider... Chingachgook
was a father just as Magua was a father.
