they only teach it as a holocaust if millions of white people are killed
it’s important to know about the genocide of indigenous ppl in the US but like that caption is really really gross to me
Ok yeah no. We can teach about the deaths of one group of people without putting down the victims and survivors of another group ( also, FYI, not all the victims of the Holocaust were fucking white )
It really isn’t about white people. The US doesn’t teach about what they did to us Native Americans because they STILL refuse to admit that they were wrong and committed such horrible acts against the original inhabitants. They don’t teach it because they are ashamed of what they did.
Part of it is the white mentality and part is the shame that the American Gov would feel for admitting that they purposely tried to wipe out entire indigenous societies. Destroyed lives and cultures out of greed, arrogance, and fear well in the 1900’s.
They would have to admit that because they lied, tricked, and killed indigenous Americans to make this country. That their oh so precious piece America was created on a foundation of corpses and greed. Not their precious God but because of greed.
THAT is why they don’t teach of that particulat holocaust and cultural genocide that went well into the 1900’s.
