The US was founded on the principle that "all men are created equal"...yet the nation began with the genocide & land theft of Native American Men

You also forgot slavery. The US is a nation born in laziness, hypocrisy and cognitive dissonance.
So what are you saying?....America is willfully confused and lazy because they in mass disagree with you?....welcome to a democracy and freedom of thought....maybe its you that is intellectually lazy....

I'm saying whites were lazy and couldn't do their own work.

I'm saying whites are a genocidal inbred race.

I'm also saying whites are natural born thieves.

and finally I am saying they have short and long term memory loss when it comes to racial injustice.

i speak the truth, and y'all cant handle it!
Hey, you bitter little simpleton, everybody in the world is living in a place that was stolen from someone else many many times throughout history.

Hey, you bitter little simpleton, everybody in the world is living in a place that at some point was "stolen" (men use the verb "conquered"--pussies use the word "stolen") from someone else, and before that, those people "stole" it from someone else, and before that...

What the American government did to the Native Americans makes the story of slavery look like a walk in the park in comparison.
Native Americans are the 'we who are born and raised here'. I think you mean Amerindians, who are not the only 'native' Americans.

When this country began, our leaders worked with the tribes to maintain peace and develop trade with them. Most did and have slowly assimilated into the larger culture, though some remnants still remain and exist as tribal reservation east of the Mississippi.

the ones that wanted to wage war were either sent west or killed in self defense.

All the other nations in all the world are so glad America came along. It absolves them somehow of all the land they've stolen, all the slaves they've nabbed, all the people they've killed.

Somehow. No one knows how, if you think about it rationally. But somehow.

You punks always try down playing slavery/jim crow apartheid. There were Native Americans who owned slaves. There is no such thing as the oppression Olympics. What the whites in this federal government has done to all people of color is fucked up.

No it does not Sue. And we are starting to pay the penalty for the non repentant attitudes of people like you. COVID-19 is a plague and America is getting the worst of it. You and others laughed when I said you will pay what you owe or you will lose what you got. Look around Sue, because that's what's happening now.

Humans have acted inhumanely throughout history. To say that stating this fact means one is defending abuses that took place in the "New World" is absurd.
Everyone had slaves at some time. Everyone conquered the land they lived on at some time. It will only serve to continue bitterness and violence to do anything other than learn our lessons, forgive ourselves and each other, and not repeat the mistakes.
Those who wish to prolong the process do so for nefarious purposes.
