    A longtime ally of President Barack Obama, Congressman Danny K. Davis [D-IL] was in Chicago recently accepting the Social Justice Award from People’s World, a Communist-based website.

    The editorial mission is partisan to the working class, people of color, women, young people, seniors, LGBT community, to international solidarity; to popularize the ideas of Marxism and Bill of Rights socialism. The websites enjoy a special relationship with the Communist Party USA, founded in 1919, and publish its news and views.

    I noticed the genocide of American Indians was left off..as was the enslavement of Africans.

    Where's the Filipino genocide? Or the one in Vietnam and Laos? Why was the Cambodian Genocide solely blamed on Pol Pot?

    Indians were wiped out by disease.

    Besides which, are there any political candidates getting money from those who killed Indians or captured slaves?

    I didn't think so. Retard. Negged for presumptively thinking you had a valid point.

    hahahaha!!! Genocide of American INDIANS????

    Do you KNOW there are NOW more of US American Indians ALIVE and live LONGER then when the "geneocides" supposedly occurred?

    Explain to me WHAT methodically effort to destroy US American Indians occurred specifically with directions from the Government and Presidents as did with Stalin and Mao?

    NONE of the crap you FEEL occurred NEVER approached the magnitude NOR
    effectiveness of Mao/Stalin!

    NOW for FACTS above...
    Estimating the number of Native Americans living in what is today the United States of America before the arrival of the European explorers and settlers has been the subject of much debate.
    In 1965, the American anthropologist Henry Dobyns published studies estimating the original population to have been 10 to 12 million. By 1983, he increased his estimates to at the MOST 18 million.
    Native Americans in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    As of 2010 American Indians were 0.9% of 311,591,917 OR: 2.9 million

    It doesn't matter because it's completely irrelevant. There is no organization today that sanctions the killing of Indians, as far as I'm aware, and certainly there are no politicians receiving big bucks from any such organization.

    People's World has not murdered anyone. Obama has not received any awards from Stalin or Mao.

    Yep. Indians were given blankets infected with Smallpox by Europeans. They were also massacred by people like General George Custer.

    You have no idea about, history, do you? Negged in the hope you will pick up a book. :D

    Yes, I do. Which is why I'm laughing at you.

    The MAJORITY of Indians who died fell to disease...not from infected blankets, and not from Custer.

    Neither Mao or Stalin engaged in systematically killing massive amounts of people either. Both countries were involved in a double hit..

    In Russia's case, they were a newly minted government after overthrowing the Tsars and having to deal with the Nazi invasion.

    In China's case, they were actively involved in a civil war and had to deal with the Japanese invasion.

    You guys are attributing deaths caused by those things to Communism. It's historically inaccurate and is intellectually infantile.

    A better case could be made about the failure of Mao's plan to turn over privately owned farms to a bunch of kids. That led to famine..and a mass die off. Same with Stalin's five year plan.

    And "excusing" America's systematic slaughter of the American Indian, as well as such events in the Phillippines and Vietnam doesn't help either.
