We're just smarter critters...

What happened to the Indians is unfortunate.. I won't deny that.. I won't apologize for it either..
Look at all of the environmental havoc that has been raised by introducing snakes into Hawaii or Feral cats in Australia..
Anytime a more adaptable/agressive species is introduced to a region where the current fauna has not had time to evolve defenses, you are going to have trouble..
Even on the microbial level.. What happens when a viral flew bug encounters a host with no resistance or an inability to fully resist??
For all of our "moral" attributes, humans are just smarter critters.. Oppurtunity knocked, and we (Europeans, or "former" eropeans) answered..

Topher, let it go man. You will be happier. As a fellow Native, what happened can not be changed. No matter how much emotion you put into it. People throughout history have been taken advantage of. Natives lost their land (or sold it, or blah blah blah) Black people have been slaves. Is it right? Depends on the times and who you ask. My point in this whole matter was and still is, I don't ever want to repeat it. This is why we have history classes. So we don't repeat it. No, it is not right to shoot somebody in the face and take their possessions. Wish it was. Today would have been a bloodbath!!! Inspector Fuzz is right. Won't deny it, but I'm not apologizing either. Going out on a limb here, but where would the Black population be if there was no slavery? I'm not saying it was right, but how many families would be here in the US without slavery? Would Indians have what they have today if they still controlled the land? Our society isn't perfect. Man I could go on and on and on.....





No witty signature at this time. Please check back later......

@Topher..

If you are in a location were no formal Government exists, where no former government EXISTED (i.e. no natural disaster looting) and where anarchy seems to be the commanding force, then YES,YES YES!!!!! It is okay to shoot the person in the face and take their possesions. ESPECIALLY if they were shooting at you first..
Do I need to present this in a clearer fashion, or do you get it??
In survival situations, morality usually takes a backseat to nature.. Hence the "smarter critter" remarks.. Also the reason why you ought to be armed to the teeth whenever a hurricane Katrina disaster senario takes place..

Late in coming, but I had to add...
It is time for a Native American Day.
We already have one.

Move to South Dakota.

Takes the place of Columbus Day, created by our late Governor George S. Mickelson.

Im not angry or upset or anything, just showing a different point of view. Although I do think it was wrong for the pilgrims to take the indians land im not gonna make a fuss over it.

And Bill, good point on the black people.
