And just for review creating schools to bring people into your society is now "Genocide".
The Native culture was flawed and that is why they perished.
People have been trying to kill Americans for a long time and we survived.
They needed vast amounts of land to maintain their way of life. They couldnt possibly defend it.
If we didnt take it over, someone else would. And then we would have neighbors that may be hostile to us.
Again I do not treat the natives like Children. I treat them like any other nation. Defend yourself or perish.
How about the Cherokee in Georgia Swamp...the ones that had farms, owned slaves, had a newspaper and their own written language? The ones that Andy Jackson rounded up with US troops and marched out on the Trail of Tears? What about them? How do they fit into your astute analysi? What hostile foreign power was poised to seize Cherokee land in Georgia in the 1830s?
You just said you do not treat natives like children, yet you claimed to support the forced removal of Indian children and putting them in white schools so they will lose their culture and heritage and become "like us."
Again, please give us your address so we can put your "Defend yourself or perish" theory to the test.
