None of this is meant as a defense of referring to Native Americans as "savages." That phrasing is clearly racist and serves as another example of the American Revolution's mixed legacy

Again, this is bullshit and incorrect.

The D of I was complaining about the British ENCOURAGING the Indians to act like savages by attacking settlers.

Not that all Indians are "Savages". The lack of ability to understand context is astoundingly atrocious.
