Sand Creek Massacre descendants seek justice

3 posts in this topic

I was going to go on and on about how 'descendants shouldn't have to care about descendants', only the wrongdoers and the victims should be involved. Then there was this bit: "The backlash was so severe, the U.S. government not only acknowledged wrongdoing but promised reparations of land and cash to survivors and relatives of victims. That promise — spelled out in an 1865 treaty — remains unfulfilled, according to descendants and their attorneys."

Carry out the treaty, damnit! I may be an American but I'm not all of America, my country, like all others, is flawed with the stupidity of humanity.

If it's a treaty, then enforce it.

But the European settlers of America shouldn't receive special blame for things which Amerinds also did to each other. Butchery didn't start in 1492.
