We did act like ***** to them. But most died from accidental infection. Update: We got syphillis. They got small pox. How were we supposed to prevent it?

Answers:

Well, because there was all that non-disease related genocide.

Just because "most" died from accidental infection doesn't mean you can ignore all the ones who died from deliberate genocide.

You probably did not learn world history and the impact of colonialism of the major empires who tried to lay claim to the Americas in the past.

Understand that violent conquest, like slavery, was the order of the day. Compounded by Christian belief in having God-given dominion over all of the world.

While it is true we didn't know the harm we could bring, hundreds of thousands of Native Americans died in wars waged against them, taking their land, leaving them homeless and desperate.

The evil white people knew. There are incidents where they gave Native Americans blankets contaminated with small pox to prove it.

But even still, disease aside, the evil white people killed many deliberately, enslaved others, and pushed them off their lands and into reservations in deserts.

I normally don't go in for this blaming the white man all the time for deeds done centuries ago, but the truth is that the Native-Americans really got a raw deal. I'd love to see the US government treat them better today.

Either way it isn't our fault because it wasn't us who did the killing it was the people that raised us. But regardless, there was killing that happened other than just diseases

Quit being stupid and ridiculous.

Because we murdered most of the rest. There were many deaths from natural causes, but that doesn't excuse the deaths that were intentional.

Well I don't know, but I think the issue was that they were given small pox on purpose. Like they purposefully took blankets with the small pox virus on them and gave them to natives. Also don't say "we"... you have nothing to feel guilty for. That was people from hundreds of years ago whom you've never met.

Illiterate pioneers magically understood infectious diseases.
