American society is based on genocide. The very land that the United States is on was stolen from indigenous peoples. Tens of millions were killed. Millions more were rounded up and put into prisoner of war camps that became reservations. Reservations were placed on the worst land. There the victims barely survived. America pretends this is ancient history, just as it pretends the slavery of Blacks in ancient history, just as it pretends imperialism is ancient history. Americans still reap the benefits of this genocide.
