You're right. 150 years back, nobody knew slavery and genocide were wrong.
As for your claim of 'genocide', I would have thought that as an educated person you might have come up with a more convincing argument than that old fall-back. We had no Trail of Tears here in Canada. We had no government sanctioned Indian hunts one the most famous being Custer's Last Stand. Our governments at the time made many mistakes in trying to accommodate and aid the natives and for that Canadians today are willingly or not, paying the price. That we should make amends is without question. That we should be continually be condemned for past wrongs without any acknowledgement of all that is being done today does everyone a disservice.
