Should we feel sorry and give back for taking the Native American's land

  • Yes yes yes

    Why the heck not like they're a dying marginalised people group so it's only fair if we give them something like their own micronation. We already did this with the jews so why not the native americabs? Why is their holocaust any different from the jewish one? This is mad

  • Had been done throughout history.

    Although some of the tactics that were used were horrible, it is wrong to say that we should all feel so horribly about it and give back. The Indians had been doing it for hundreds of years before the white Europeans had got there and in every culture around the world throughout history. The Natives also committed horrible acts and broke treaties. In the end white Europeans won and should not have to pay retributions for it now.

  • Are there any left

    I don’t think there’s enough natives left in the country the America’s but I do think they should be given the respect and recognition they deserve not put in reservation with bingo casinos and cigarette sales to make up for their demolition and their way of life stolen from them traditions a lot of alcoholism and spouse abuse is reported in their communities also the stereotype of th native is as bad as black face for blacks after all they were hoodwinked these injungivers by the settlers with beads because of their naivity

  • Every bits of land have been conquered at some time in the past if one goes back far enough.

    I suppose the Natives can start a revolution to take back what is perceived to be taken unjustly, just like how every bit of land had changed hands. I suppose I can claim a good portion of the Earth based on ancestry, since everyone is descended from an original small group of ancestors. How far back should you want the argument?

  • Transgressions of ancestors.

    No one should be held accountable for the actions of those that came before. I am Swedish does this mean I need to be held accountable for the actions of the Vikings? Are all Germans responsible for the holocaust? Are all Muslims responsible for Islamic Terrorist.
    Not only are we not responsible but the fact of the matter is the Natives were conquered. They lost. If we were to give them land back why would we stop there, why not give all conquered land back to those who originally inhabited it.
