The genocide of natives clearly took place in America. This is a trait of Anglo Saxon people, never to admit their wrongdoings. Yet, they like to blame other peoples.

I suppose the Coalminer's strike in the early 1980's was genocide. You need to understand the terms if you're going to use them. Expansion does not equal genocide.

The Europeans knew no more about smallpox than the aboriginals did about syphills, or people in the 14th century knew about the black plague. What happened was not genocide. It was neither panned nor deliberate.

While there were policies that by 21st century standards were wrong, there was no genocide.

There was a genocide committed by the Russians against the Ukrainians and Poles though, and even against the Germans after World War II.

No it wasn`t a genocide against Ukranians, much less Germans. The famine was not just in Ukraine and not only Ukranians died. Russians died either. As for Germans, wft?? They killed 27 mln. of Russian people in the first place. Wasn`t it a genocide? Yet, the article says, this genocide isn`t in Canadian list of genocides.

As for native Americans, whites intentionally sold infected blankets to Indians, paid for scalps of Indians. Scalps of women and children costed more. They killed buffalos to make Idians starve.. if it was not a genocide, what genocide is I wonder? Answer that one, disgusting hypocrite!

No the miners strike was a monumental battle against Corporate Fascism,are you trying to tell me the US didn't have a policy of wiping the Indians out?

Speaking for all real Americans....We're all getting a little sick of the Injun's belly-aching.
The fact is, if my people hadn't colonized this continent, those savages would be sleeping in buckskin tents, eating dead birds and freezing to death in the winter.
As it stands, they get free everything, booze on tap and casinos.....I should have it so good.

You don't know jack-fck about America or Americans. When you pretend you do, you just make a bigger a-hole out of yourself than you already are.

Oh, I get it now, you're just a moron. And an ill-educated one at that.
I'd point out every mistake you've made there, point by point, but I'd be wasting my time. Clearly, you are incapable of separating fact from fiction. You have my pity.

You are not a real American, you are a fake American, which should be deported back to Europe.
