I have always maintained that the holocaust in germany and Americas treatment of the indians were very similar. Rounding up all persons of undesireable racial background and sending them to reservations instead of concentration camps, "pacification" campaigns instead of clearing out the ghettos, invasion of territorial homelands instead of blitzing across internationally recognized boarders.
I consider myself native american because I was born on the North American continent and have never been to another. I have just as much right to be here as any so called "native american"
But I am sick and tired of being made to feel as though I constantly have to apologize just because I am white. Lay off of the finger pointing and the guilt trips people. If a white man does not fall all over himself in apology the minute the word indian is so much as mentioned, he is automatically labled a racist or racially intolerant. From where the sun now stands, I will apologize no more, forever.
