"New archaeological evidence suggests that America was first discovered by Stone Age people from Europe – 10,000 years before the Siberian-originating ancestors of the American Indians set foot in the New World.

A remarkable series of several dozen European-style stone tools, dating back between 19,000 and 26,000 years, have been discovered at six locations along the US east coast. Three of the sites are on the Delmarva Peninsular in Maryland, discovered by archaeologist Dr Darrin Lowery of the University of Delaware. One is in Pennsylvania and another in Virginia. A sixth was discovered by scallop-dredging fishermen on the seabed 60 miles from the Virginian coast on what, in prehistoric times, would have been dry land."

The spanish to the enitery of south america, romans to europe, islam to byzantine, british (technically) to the native americans. Its human nature, this now atomized horse carcass needs to just be dropped already.

White people today aren't responsible for slavery and the German's today aren't responsible for the Nazis


BUT IT'S OUR FAULT ABOUT THE NATIVE AMERICANS

because white people freed slaves, and gave them civil rights, the Germans paid the price for their war crimes and all the Nazis were killed off, white Americans never said sorry, never gave the lands back, to this day the Indian reserves of the surviving native Americans are inhospitable hell holes and have lost all rights to their sacred and tribal lands, Indians don't even have the right to vote or the right to be a citizen, to this day native Americans are still treated like second class citizens

OK, sure, the Europeans did kill a lot of indians, take land.. But mostly for good reason - the common misconception today is that all indians were nice and peace - loving, whereas Europeans were eivil or something. THis is not true. Native Americans used to scalp Europeans on a daily basis and launch attacks against them - there are numerous stories of settlements being overrun by natives. So you really couldn't say they "murdered" them. We call it "self defense." They were called savages because that's what they did - they savaged. Scalping, killing, etc. As for the raping of women, there is plenty of documentation saying the other ALSO happened - natives raped white european women. So you see, the natives were far from helpless and misjudged. In addition, the pilgrims that had the dinner that is celebrated on Thanksgiving never actually killed indians. Quit bitching.

if an advanced and foreign army shows up on our door and overrunss your lands settling sacred and tribal lands and treating you like dirt, you too would do whatever is necessary to scare off and stop the hostile settlement.

there are also examples of natives living in peace and trading with europeans, e.g. the haudenosaunee (Iroquois) people lived in peace with the dutch settlers because the dutch respected thier lands.
