Response to “Bonus Post”

Posted by jwilhelm21 on November 13, 2009

I found the response to the adress equally sickening, but entirely unsuprising.  The more I learn about the treatment of  the Indigenous people of Americas, the less I think of the foundations of our country.  Whether it be the Jackson’s “Trail of Tears” or small pox laced blankets, the colonists, and later the American treatment of Native Americans is abhorent.  I think we will find as we continue to study United States history that our past is littered with ignorance and poor treatment of practically every minority group.  Good to be aware of, but quite frankly, immensely disturbing.
