You get educated first. North America taught that when you don't want people on the land you kill them off, and you want to bitch about one side doing it while excusing 'your side' from going it longer and in greater numbers. This is just the Indians once you add in the 'others' the USSR looks positively tame. BTW GB, France, Italy, Spain were in there like dirty shirts.
How many Native Americans were killed by the US government
Two studies have been conducted that attempt to number the natives killed by the United States. The first of these was sponsored by the United States government, and while official does not stand up to scrutiny and is therefore discounted (generally); this estimate shows between 1 million
to 4 million
killed. The second study was not sponsored by the US Government but was done from independent researchers. This study estimated populations and population reductions using later census data. Two figures are given, both low and high, at: between 10 million
and 114 million
Indians as a direct result of US actions. Please note that Nazi Holocaust estimates are between 6 and 11 million; thereby making the Nazi Holocaust the 2nd largest mass murder of a class of people in history.
The list and numbers are enough that you should need a barf bag, all except Colpy who will probably get a woodie.
