- Reaction score
Ever hear of "To the victors go the spoils" That has been the story since time immemorial. Khan, Ottomans, Greeks, Romans, African tribes, American tribes (do you think the Navajo gave back Hopi, Zuni or any other conquered people), The Spaniards, Inca, Mayans, Aztec, Sioux? The US has made life better for EVERY group that they have ever conquered. Native Americans receive benefits to this day, black people (slave relations or not) have been the recipients of special favors for over 50 years. I know you're woke, so you'll be apologizing for something that you had no hand in until you're in your grave. Thanksgiving is a day set aside to offer thanks to whatever supreme being you choose for the wonderful life we lead, not a time to point fingers for injustices, real or imagined.
Please point out where I was apologizing. I said it was the way things worked back then. And it was. No guilt here. Just a statement of facts.
