execution?

wouldnt mass murder be slightly more accurate ?



In early December, 303 Sioux prisoners were convicted of murder and rape by military tribunals and sentenced to death. Some trials lasted less than 5 minutes. No one explained the proceedings to the defendants, nor were the Sioux represented by a defense in court

I live in Lakota, just a short distance from Mankato. I was in town this morning and saw the last few minutes of the ceremony. It was very touching. They weren't dwelling on the shiatty thing that happened, they were focused on making amends and moving forward. That's not exactly a common theme these days.

We shall hang  no one as a nation, for it undermines our very bases. That is really it, really.

Of course the Injuns murdered over 800 clean decent white folks without provocation each and every one of whom probably wished he'd had an AR-15 or a Bushmaster with a 1000 round Stoner magazine like the hero SEALs use to wipe out their kind of filthy terrorists today.

Minorities often have problems in every culture. Fortunately, the U.S. is far better at accommodating multiple cultures and backgrounds than Europe or most other nations.

White people are already a minority at about 25% of the world's population. Relax, lol. Your racism is like a glaring neon sign.

265 were given reprieves by Abe Lincoln but why did most of them end up dying in prison camp? Because the conditions were squaw-led! Hey-o! Don't forget to tip your waitress. I'll be here all week. Try the pemmican! But seriously folks, earlier this month, out of the blue, I started reading The Fiery Trial. The first thing I learned was that it was the 150th anniversary of the Fiery Trial speech that very day. He also covered this execution a little bit, and of course, the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation is next week.

If you get a chance there's a good doc called "500 Nations" which fairly quickly (4.5 hrs) goes through the entire native American history and genocide region by region. About two hours in it gets kind of rough to handle all the inhumanity, but if you push through it's worth it for the historical scope.
Here's part one on youtube:

Apparently a lot of California Indians murdered during the gold rush were killed Oregonians. Not to mention Oregonians habit of burning Indians food caches.

I'm not even sure what ThrobblefootSpectre is trying to say here.  Maybe people here don't assume they know where a person's family is from based on how they look.

I know that I quickly learned to say Black instead of African-American living here in Portland.  A good percentage of the black people here aren't from the African continent.  And of those who are from African countries, some aren't American.  So African-American doesn't always apply and could offend.

Just like how I know many Central & South Americans get mad when all of us are labeled Mexican.  Or all Asians are called Chinese.

38 people.
Out of three hundred.
Because you spared the rest.
From a group you were at war with.
At a time when every other country worth a damn slaughtered folks by the thousands.

No wonder the Euros laugh at you all.

Nice to hear we are finally atoning for the massacre of 38 Indians.

Now, I would like to see someone come forward and prosecute the bastards who murdered 78 people at Waco Texas on April 19, 1993, and then arrested all whom they did not kill outright, placed them on trial on phony charges, and after they were acquitted of all but the moist trivial offenses, bribed a crooked judge to send them up for 40 years anyway, on an offence which should have rated 3 days, tops.

Persecution is not always a matter of race, and terrorism is legal in the USSA, as long as you wear the right uniform and work for the gummint.

Enjoy it while you can, bastards, free men are coming to kill you.
