the indians were in perpetual war throughout the americas. great book about it called the myth of the peaceful savage. not sure how hoping you dont get raped or murdered daily is a great life. at least now you guys get free college and casinos

It was a different kind of warfare, though. War was had between tribes when some personal slight was made, or they threatened the lives of people you deeply cared about. It was personal. Now we send men to war for the profit of the wealthy.

Also, many tribes were quite peaceful.

So, basically.... they were plains niggers.

many people don't know, or don't care to know the homocide rate prior to whites settling the americas was about 1 in 4, compared to say Detroit which is about 45 homicides per 100,000 people. it's very hard to think about and actually conceive of how brutal native populations were. 1 in 4.

Please enlighten us on where you would get such a statistic...... edit: (the indian one) how would they even go about proving or calculating that before white people showed up?

Probably one of the biggest things. Not jumping on the bandwagon here, but Jews are the same as well, but everyone sees them as the victim because of the holocaust.

fairly certain that Jews were too busy being killed by other groups around them to crank up the homicide rate to that much. my job is to analyze Jewish communities from the 19th to 20th centuries, and there is no mention of a homicide rate that high in any of the work I've done. I'd like to see where you got that figure, can you post your sources?

not that this has anything to do with Native homicide rates, I don't want to hijack the thread.

I've noticed that all 3 comments here are defenses. It's just a funny joke, I don't see why you have to counter it.

Because it's based on falsehoods. There's a reason these primitive idiots got nowhere and were so easily conquered (though they did put up a fight.) No one wants entertain that a conquered people were right about anything, especially if it's from a font that blames whitey, which has been exhausted.

It did hurt nobody.

It annoyed many, probably. Because of its stupidity.

I get this is a joke, but I think this is interesting all the same:

The main reason there were so much buffalo and so much abundance in north america was because the natives had experienced a mass extinction before the settlers came wherein some 90+% of the population died to dieases and war. Because the natives had largely died off, the hunting pressure on buffalo ceased. This is combination with the lack of any apex predator (the natives killed those off) the herds grew without restraint.

ITT: Oversensitive people being triggered by a dumb joke relying on clichés, overgeneralization and oversimplification.

Still better then Reddit. They probably would have deleted it as too sexist for the notion that womyn doing all the work is desirable.
