The U.S. stole generations of Indigenous children to open the West

What the U.S. did to Indian children is every bit as despicable as what they did to Japanese Americans in WWII.

My grandmother got to experience one of the "boarding schools" first hand. I sleep comfortably knowing those "teachers" are burning in hell.

American history is spotted with bits that have been "lost" so as to not have happened. All countries do it, just deeply disappointing when it happens here and folks defend the white washing of our history.

Personally … I have taken note that it is true that the story is told by those who have won it and omitted shameful parts … but I also verify that when those peoples / civilizations defeated take back in a certain way the lost power (or the land ) … they behave as badly and aggressively towards their former contenders as
in the same bad way they did it first… therefore … it does not matter who is victorious or in what way situations of warlike conflict ended … humans act like Bleeped text every time they have a certain power regardless of their origin, religion or motivation…it would seem that there are no exceptions to this rule…
