I think it is important to remember that the white civilization nearly wiped out native americans. The "murders" as you say commited to whites by indians is sooo small compared to what was done to the native americans. I have lived in germany for 14 years and there isn't a day you aren't reminded of Hitler and his atrocities. I had that subject 3 times during my school career. People here in the US are not aware of the full extent of atrocities that were commited by the whites. And even nowadays contracts are still not being acknowledged. It's still going on. It's just that the native americans don't have any voice anymore. YOU AMERICANS WIPED OUT A HIGHLY EVOLVED SOCIETY OF 10-15 MILLION PEOPLE. Americans are so hypocritical when criticizing other atrocities around the world. When it comes to their own atrocities they shrug it away with "it's in the past, let's look forward to the future". Yes indeed let's look forward to the future. Is america much better than it was 200 years ago? NO. America is still invading other countries without reason, america is still supporting dictatorships around the world, America is still supporting genocide in Palestine, America is using it's economic might to subjugate countries around the world and destroy the livelihoods of the poorest of the poor (WTC and NAFTA). You say you don't have any part in it? Indeed you do...you are a consumer and a voter, you are a person with a voice. Speak out against atrocities commited by your country...and remember the atrocities committed and be ashamed!
