Default Do you think the Indians and White Man could have got along?

Imagine an alternative America where Americans and Indians got along and never fought and killed eachtother.

Where would America be now and how strong would the Indians be?

The White man is programmed to seek, destroy, then convert whenever he encounters a new culture/race/etc. The Indians extended an olive branch to the White man by teaching him how to survive in the wilderness (Thanksgiving), the White man repaid the favor by giving the Indian smallpox-laced blankets. So there you go

So how are current native americans like? Outside of the US people have this notion of native americans being a mystical people but nobody really knows how they're like, or atleast nobody cares.

I've always wondered myself, how are they like? Does anybody on ISH knows and hangs out with native americans? Are the women hot? Do they stay in reservations all the time or have a bigger presence in the larger community?

What up Malcolm X.

"White people are programmed"

You probably think white people was created by a black scientist in an experiment.

To be fair, mate, and maybe youre just speakin in jest, but the white man only got such reverence from the redskins because they thought whites were some kind of fancy gods, appearing from the vast ocean with a bunch of incredible technology. Redskins had a reason to e nice and friendly. To other native tribes, they werent so friendly. If white man were just some group of Injun simpletons occupyin a little bit of land and minin their own business, some other tribe woulda came and scalped em for control of the land.

Imagine whatd happen if a tribe of Injuns somehow came across a tribe of negroes that had been dropped onto America and were livin same as they was back in Africa, hittin rocks together and throwin spears around. Indians woulda made slaves of em same as the white man did, mate.

Nope , the quest for wealth was always going to lead to casualties.

+ The diseases brought to the new world was what brought most of the killing , not the conquistadors themselves.

Aren't you Mexican? You must have alot of European DNA....

And to the OP question America wouldn't be as advanced. If the "white" man never colonized the Americas this continent would have still been uncharted, tribal, non-industrializated, etc.. Just like Africa to an extent. So if you are really against the white man and their atrocities to the native americans pack up and leave the country because you are essentially enjoying the benefits of the white colonizers.

BTW, what the colonists did was wrong obviously but was it any different to any other conquest in human history? Are people today complaining about the Turks stealing Greek land and cities(Constantinople and Asia Minor) by their conquest? No. Does any one give a shit about Russia's conquest of the east and even forcibly incorporating all of their neighboring countries into the USSR? No. Do people care about Israel stealing Arab land? No.

Where is the line drawn?

Mostly they are dead. The ones that aren't dead tend to be like other Americans, except for the whole getting money from casinos thing.

The ones I meet are like half or quarter native american and were pretty fine. The full blood indians i met are fat with big noses and not that hot. But those are just ones I met, so not that many. From what I understand, they are pretty poor and Indian reservations are the poorest ghettos in the whole country. I never seen really nice middle class reservations but they probably exist.
