In all honesty, I don't give a **** about the native Americans. They were a bunch of uncivilized savages. They didn't even believe in the concept of ownership so we didn't take anything from them. They were basically people who lived in an abandoned apartment and not pay rent, like squatters. What happened here built the greatest country ever. It had to be done and i'm glad it did. I'm just going to be honest and blunt, just straight out say it. I do not nor will I ever give a **** about those savage Indians. I'm sorry but that's just how I feel. They are not me, I am white, not native American. It has no negative impact on me what happened to them, only good things came out of it. Why should I care? You think they cared about us when they were savagely scalping the dead bodies of their enemies? No respect for the dead.

One of the fundamental conflicts between the "white men" and Native Americans was not that they were stealing their land, but that Native Americans didn't believe that man could "own" land. Perhaps they could borrow it temporarily to farm and house their family, but once they finished using it they thought it proper to return the land as they found it. That was why it was seen as a huge shock when the white men started demarcating land, selling it, and acting like a piece of paper dictates who "owned" a certain plot of land. So I would say this picture conveys the wrong type of message.

I don't like how this caused a political debate, it was supposed to be a funny little joke that pokes fun. But since it did allow me to throw my two cents in.

According to what we know from history, as white people we did **** the Native Americans over. We came over to North America and brought various diseases. We did terrible and immoral things which we justified with the idea of "manifest destiny." We applied concepts like ownership to the Native Americans, even though they didn't understand these concepts and consequently got ****** over when they made deals. We did awful things; that can't be ignored

But you know? What we did was no different than any other instance where one race invaded and took over another race's land. It has happened all the time throughout history, it currently still happens, and it will continue to happen forever as long as there is land to be had and races or groups of people to oppose each other. It happens so often that it might as well be considered a natural human aspect; something that makes us who we are.

And honestly, because it happens so much, and since what we did to the North Americans is no different than any other invasion, and since our domination has brought about the North America that we see today, I don't ******* care. **** happens, and its redundant and pointless to complain hundreds of years after it happened.

And that's also why I would like to say (though I won't because its not socially acceptable and it makes me an asshole) to a native when the y complain that "white people ruined our way of life" that there is still plenty of land out there, if you don't like the civilization we've brought, and you would like to return to your roots, go right ahead. Head into the wilderness and live off the land like your forefathers did, the way you apparently want to since you complain about how your way of life has been altered. It makes no difference to me, government laws allow you to hunt whatever you want.

Go ahead.

It's not that easy. You seem to understand and recognize that we were ****** over, but you don't understand the extent.

We were put through cultural genocide. (You might know this as assimilation, or residential schools as it is taught today.)

We're really not complaining that our way of life has been ruined, but rather our entire identity was decimated. In fact most native people who live on their reserves are about the closest thing to their ancestors as possible. They hunt for themselves, and cook their own meat. They know how to make clothes and tools. They can find food out in the wild. That is not the problem. (On a side note, all of the wandering tribes, who were living traditionally with no impact to the america's were hunted down and slaughtered.)

When you hear native people talk about how they were wronged, they are talking about things like the Indian Act, and the residential school system. These things that made an indian, by law, lesser than a white man. Now arguably this isn't as important when everyone was lesser than the white man at this time. However it has taken constant fighting to this day to get these things changed.

Did you know that native american people weren't even recognized as human beings until January, 2012

A system was created that made the native people ultimately reliant upon the white man, that refused to allow them to be independent, which they were fully capable of. By the time they cut ties, they expect us to be able to survive and function in this white mans society.

**** , High school makes me hate Native americans, especially living in Kansas we hear about them all the time, yeah we did some ****** up stuff but holy **** , I am tired of hearing about them. Just the way they think pisses me off by reading their personal journals, they have a lot of history but they are ******* stupid with their culture.
