    I don't think native Americans benefited a whole lot from their interaction with white Europeans.

    I don't know, look at some historical fact.

    Before white man came to what is now known as America;

    There was no such thing as a mortgage.

    There were no banks or lawyers.

    There were no salesmen.

    There was no unemployment.

    Man hunted and fished all day.

    Women did most of the real work.

    And dumb ass white-man thought he could improve a system like that?

    Native Americans didn't own the land, even they recognized that. Not to lessen how horribly they were treated but just to point out a fact.

    Can we count Jewish as a race? If so I don't think there is any dispute as to who's got the short end of the stick.

    Native Americans are doing better today then they could have ever imagined, just the indoor plumbing and cable tv alone is a dream for them.

    Everyone has benefited. Except those who cling to the outdated notion that their race is superior.

    bedtime for bigots.
