Fourth of July


Normally open July 4th only---the one day a year when partisan politics, religion, etc. are acceptable topics on this Board (within reason). The forum is now closed.

I think most responders have overlooked the word "Native" in this query.
Its a shame that they have lonewolf these ppl were over here living as civilized humans before these civilized barbarians(europeans) got their claws into this country.



Just to be clear -

Whether you are a Creationist or Evolutionist regarding human origins, one thing is consistent - there is no such thing as a NATIVE American.

As for what the Europeans did to the folks who made it here before them, keep in mind homo sapiens were pushing each other around long before 1492, and they'll be doing it long after we're dust.


I love how when discussing the 'native' American all of a sudden normal rules don't apply. All of a sudden ethnicity doesn't really exist and genocide is justified. To say that there was not violations of human rights just because other people were doing it is an insult to history. It is correct not to judge people based on standards of our time that were not relevant then, but this does not mean we should not be honest about what happened.
