I don’t understand why you have deferred to other countries. We are talking about America and “inventing freedom”.
Yeah, America does have a past that is not all roses and unicorns. I think its unfair that how some settlers treated the Native Americans is glossed over in an attempt to show that America invented freedom.
Is killing an Indian for his land the same as killing a Scottsman for his? Its all the same. Its not correct to say “Hey! I just killed these weird looking people who wear different clothes that were living here already and got upset that some stranger is wandering around their lands. We are free now!”
