The oppression of the TRUE american population (the Indians) is something that has not stopped to this day, however, most European white settlers are
not horrible people and do not condone violence. To tell a story of how they first settled and made peace is pleasing to the average modern day
american. Do you think they would be ok with the native indians being forced into trailer parks if they knew that their ancestors have been treating
them as sub human for centuries?
White european-americans are a very proud people, proud of their roots and their heritage, to tell them that this started very violently and
horrifically could ruin their sense of patriotism, and the sense that Americans have always been the 'good-guys'.
It's a shame that history of any kind is not understood, no matter how horrific. You do not learn from covering up mistakes, you learn by studying
them and ensuring it never happens again.
