I'm already aware of everything that was posted there. We learned about it in school. I wasn't trying to say that the USA committed more atrocities
than anywhere else, I was saying that we admit to our mistakes of the past and don't try to sugarcoat them with a patriotic slant. Schools here teach
everybody exactly what happened, and I have never once heard somebody here use the term "won" when referring to the colonization of this land.
My post wasn't meant to be a personal attack to anybody or any country. I just wish people would stop acting like their ancestors were right. Our
ancestors did some terrible things, and no, it isn't our fault, but the very least we can do is admit that they aren't the heroes that they
were originally thought to be. We should just acknowledge the truth of what really happened and try to move forward. My main concern isn't who did
the most or least amount of damage, it's making sure things like this don't happen again. If we don't acknowledge historical truths, history is
bound to repeat itself.
