Well, Enrique, I've got to hand it to you! You REALLY know how to ask a question. One WAY too complex to answer here, as one could not ever explain their point of view clearly enough in a post and it would only invite misinterpretation.
I must say, though, that as shameful the conquest of North America was (is), it is only a tiny part of all the World's history, and guess what? It's FILLED with violence & hate & greed & ruthlessness & conquering & deception & blood & oppression ... and, as is somewhat reflected in "The Last of the Mohicans," it was going on here long before Europeans crossed the ocean. It has been part of the human condition ... and Red, White, Black or Yellow, we're ALL human. I think none of us, generally speaking, stands any taller than the rest.
