It wasn't a deliberate destruction of Native Americans. Whitey simply wanted them to be somewhere else and took matters into their own hands when they wouldn't move. There was no "We gotta wipe them out" movement.
Posted by MikeT23 on 2/3/2013 8:39:00 AM (view original):I obviously disagree.
Words do have meanings.
Again you have to have an intent here.
This was meant as a way to bring the Native Americans into our society. To include them in.
And there was never real force involved in this.
Again some of the treatment was brutal and some of the attitudes were wrong.
If this is Genocide we are setting the bar pretty low.
Posted by swamphawk22 on 2/3/2013 1:28:00 PM (view original):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.
