Why would I feel guilty. My ancestors were not the ones to kill the Indians or displace them. They liked the Indians when they moved to this
My ancestors did not own slaves. We came here in the late 1800s. There weren't many black people around here but they are starting to lose their
fear of the snow lately so are coming here now. My ancestors, and I were workers that worked for the businesses and paid taxes to the government when
they wanted them. If anything we were slaves to the society we live in.
Those who were instigational in starting this country and destroyed cultures and enslaved the black people can feel guilty if they want. I think they
would rather make people who weren't involved feel guilty though and reel in the cash they make off of us.
I think the Indians should have extra rights than we do, mostly in hunting and fishing rights. They usually moderate themselves well and try to
replenish the lakes here. The Indians had their land pulled out from underneath them in the past, most treaties were scams in the favor of the people
who wanted the land to sell. I think the blacks have equal rights, they are Americans just like all of us now. They don't need extra rights, just
equal. If the Hispanics want to be citizens and pay taxes, they can. I don't agree with them sneaking into the country. There is a legal way to
enter the US, use it.
