Response to Point to point

 

If "The Americans" had wished to practice genocide, there would not be a single descendant of the aboriginal peoples left in our country. The Americans conquered. And some of those who were on the losing side were:

a) spared
b) allocated land on which to live without assimilation

(I am not gonna pretend it was all cake and roses, it wasn't, and the use of treaties as "scraps of paper" did not start with Adolf Hitler, that is for sure! Those peoples who are conquered are not always given that choice, or that treatment. In some cases it is: assimilate, or else. Depends on the conqueror.)

Pulling that sort of cheap shot in your otherwise very interesting discussion is pure bullsh**, and offensive.

You're better than that.
