Kinda makes you feel good all over doesn’t it? A whopping twenty five thousand as reparations for being guilty of engaging in eugenics, the very thing this country condemned the Nazis for, who by the way were so impressed with U.S. approach they adopted it themselves.
So let’s see, as indigenous people we’ve been scalped for the bounty placed on our hair, enslaved, murdered in a wholesale fashion, had everything stolen from us, been subjected to sterilization, poisoned, starved, sent to boarding schools, mutilated, disenfranchised, confined to gulags referred to as reservations, fought in this countries wars without being able to vote, denied due process of law, subjected to mass public hangings, cornered and coerced into signing treaties which were meaningless before the ink even dried, had the breasts of our women and the scrotums of our men made into tobacco pouches…. and some actually think we should forget and let it all go?
Too much blood and too much suffering to ever forget.
