You will Do well to try to Innoculate the Indians by means of Blanketts, as well as to try Every other method that can serve to Extirpate this Execrable Race. I should be very glad your Scheme for Hunting them Down by Dogs could take Effect, but England is at too great a Distance to think of that at present.

-Lord Amherst's response


Blankets didnt wipe out a continent full of people, mate.

If white man and redskins occupied the same land and interacted frequently, even with the utmost harmony and accord, it would have happened anyway. Viruses dont know the white mans intentions. Sharing and interaction of any lind would have spread disease.

Its all jolly good though mate. The young generation loves to use the label 'haters' these days but to my mind theyre too quick to do so. Simply disagreeing about somethin now makes you a hater. It used to be that bein a hater meant contempt for somethin purely out of jealousy and insecurity.

Its obvious you are an old school hater, mate. Hatin on the white man because you can never be one! Never ever. That makes me feel good, mate. To know a bloke like you is stewin over a bloke like me, simply out of jealousy.

Your obvious insecurity about the color of your skin is like antioxidants givin me health, mate. Mmmm...

Where did I defend anything, mate? And why would I need to? What's happened, happened. I aint had a bloody thing to do with any of it, mate, there'd be no need for me to defend it. It's all just a part of history.

All I said was simply that interactions were all the same back in those days. That white people won only has to do with biological and technological advantages, not any kind of inherent disposition for conquest.

If it were up to me, mate, Indians would have been 100% disease resistant. Not a single one of them would have died from infection as a result of Euro interaction. This would allowed them to take the place of Africans, and negroes would have never been brought to the states. Imagine such a utopia!


Haha, I'm just kiddin, mate. No I'm not.

Again, contempt/hatred/disdain aren't the same and have differing degrees.

If you would have said "All black people jump high", I would simply think you were a stereotyping neanderthal, not a racist.

I'm not saying he isn't racist, but I'm not saying he is. I ask before making accusations like that.

You know who I love, though? Asian people. They are the bomb.

But he is right. Have you ever took a history course? The Natives were even dying before the English started to colonize mainland America through interactions with traders which spread the deadly contagions their body wasn't immune to due to complete isolation from Eurasia + Africa.

The disease blankets didn't wipe out the entire continent
