Well, to be fair, they did kill 100 million native americans. If that's not wiping out entire races of people, I dunno what is.

92% of North American indigenous peoples that died, were killed by disease not firing squads and forced labor. Did European races emigrating to the country bring those diseases, yes, did they do it on purpose?

Yeah, most of it was on purpose. Kinda hard to say its an accident when you give a guy a blanket of small pox so you can jack his shit.

You forgot to mention them sending all japanese American citizens to concentration camps (Americans prefer to call them "internment camps")

Estimates of the precolumbian population of the whole of North America (of which the US is the smaller but more habitable part) range from 2 to 20 million.

Well, I did exaggerate. 100 million were killed in total, which includes disease brought by colonisers. It's believed that around 40 million were killed by settlers.
