Political Killings—Genocide

an article by our site

A genocide is actions whose aim is to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group. “Determining what historical events constitute a genocide and which are merely criminal or inhuman behavior is not a clear-cut matter. In nearly every case where accusations of genocide have circulated, partisans of various sides have fiercely disputed the interpretation and details of the event, often to the point of promoting wildly different versions of the facts.” Genocides in history

Political Killings
Political Killings (Source: List of genocides by death toll)

Was the killing of Native Americans (a.k.a. “Indians”) by European colonists genocide or self defense or war? How about the fact that most of them died unintentionally due to European diseases? There are fierce debates about such things. It’s merely a conquest if American Indians were merely pacified, with an attempt at peaceful coexistence. When Indians fight back since they hate the idea of being pushed around, isn't it now a war? You can see why there are so many debates about such things! Once Indians had proven they were brutal savages by skinning some settlers alive and torturing others, settlers felt justified in killing Indians.

On the other hand, once Indians saw Calvary slaughter entire Indian settlements—even women and children—Indians felt justified in killing settlers. At various times, Indians specified they were trying to kill all “white-eyes” and Calvary specified they were trying to kill all “redskins.” Two-way genocide. Happily, neither side succeeded: 3,766,968 out of USA population of 313,914,040 people (2012) are American Indian and Alaska Native persons (2011). That is 1.2%, which means 98.8% of the people are NOT American Indians or Alaska Natives. When Europeans arrived in what is now the continental U.S. in 1492, there were somewhere between 1 and 18 million Indians, depending on which historian you believe. Now there are 5.2 million Indians or mixed-race Indians in the U.S. So one cannot say whether there are more or less Indians than in 1492.

When Indians surrendered, we put them in reservations so they and we could coexist peacefully in the same country. We let them run what happened in their lands, and we even allowed them to build casinos to attract whites to. And ever since, whites have been getting scalped by Indians and Indians, whites, and the U.S. government are all happy. Is that a happy ending? For the few whites/blacks/browns/yellows and even reds that win at the casinos, for the many Indians that are legally scalping whites and laughing all the way to the bank, and for the government that is no longer bothered by complaints (or massacres, actual scalpings, raids, attacks), yes—it is a happy ending. Hardly genocide. For more facts, see Genocides in history.
