(Both groups are Muslim. )...The government responded by turning loose the janjaweed. On horses and camels, they have stormed black villages, setting fire to huts, stealing cattle, and raping and killing villagers.” In other words, Arab africans are completely destroying the homes and invading space of the black africans. Similarly, this reminds me of the Holocaust of 1933, the reason of this being that the natzi were destroying homes of many jewish just like arab africans destroying home of black africans. Thus, why would the world want history to repeat itself.
With the first wave of Spanish colonization of the New World, many indigenous peoples were killed and their lands were seized and their way of life was destroyed (Tindall 26-27). When the Spanish showed up, they greatly overpowered indigenous peoples. They had iron, seafaring vessels, firearms, explosives, and swords, with indigenous peoples had copper, dugout canoes, arrows, and tomahawks (Tindall 27). This is immoral because the indigenous peoples would have no chance against the Spanish, and killing the indigenous people was senseless since they couldn’t fight back well anyway. When indigenous people were threatened by people in a village Columbus left behind, they attacked, killing ten people, only to lead to a retaliation that decimated their numbers (Tindall 21).
Could you picture around 6 million people? Now how would you feel if all of them were killed right now? All of them being killed because they were African American or they were Mexican. The Holocaust was when the Nazi’s led by Adolf Hitler persecuted, tortured, and killed people just because they were Jewish. People were separated from their families and gassed or burned just to keep up with how many people were coming into the camp, or just to amuse themselves.
During the Sixteenth century Bartolome de las Casas, a Bishop of Chiapas, was in New- Spain looking over the region. While there, he had noticed that innocent Native American men, women and children were murdered in mass quantities. Therefore, he exercised his opinions in a series of documents to show his point of view on what sins the Spaniards are committing on the Indigenous people. Bartolome de las Casas write gruesome seeing’s of plain out murder of Indigenous people in Chiapas. He states, “… the Christians have slain and destroyed so many and such infinite numbers of souls, has been simply to get, as their ultimate end, the Indians’ gold of them” (de las Casas A Short Account of the Destruction) Because of selfish reasons of receiving
Too me its negative because of all the innocent children and men and women that died and gang estcon was like hey i 'll protect you if you pay me if you don 't pay me i 'll kill your whole village go look what i did too the last people. Anyways my view of it was that he just wanted money and he raped the women and stole from the familys of the houses he set fire too and used it too make fire departments and he would have too steal too keep the fire
Christopher Columbus’s journal describes the Natives as having “marks of wounds on their bodies” and that they indicated the wounds are from “people from other adjacent islands came with the intention of seizing them, and that they defended themselves”. This is what many accuse Columbus of doing, and while he did seize natives, it was already happening before he got there. There we much worse occurrences, such as terrible acts of “sacrifice” done by the Aztecs. Schweikart and Allen said in the book A Patriot’s History of the United State that “A four-day sacrifice in 1487 by the Aztec king Ahuitzotl involved the butchery of 80,400 prisoners by shifts of priests working four at a time at convex killing tables who kicked lifeless, heartless bodies down the side of the pyramid temple. This worked out to a killing rate of fourteen victims a minute over the ninety-six-hour bloodbath”.
Ironically, the skin color of the white men are neither righteous nor “clean” as they had raped Deborah, leading to the hunt led by Deborah’s father as retaliation. I saw that retaliation through bloodshed was to be seen as a sort of cleansing of sins as Christ both in this book and the Bible is seen brutally killed by execution on the cross. And so seeing that, the murders
Miners looked at Native American as “obstacles”, so they raided and burned their villages (ShastaCountyHistory.com- Welcome to the Shata County, Californiahistorysite). The miners would also destroy their food supplies (ShastaCountyHistory.com- Welcome to the Shata County, Californiahistorysite). Indians had no civil rights; if one indian stood up for themselves, then they would be murdered. Miners would kill indians just to get rid of them (ShastaCountyHistory.com- Welcome to the Shata County, Californiahistorysite). After some time, miners began to settle on the land, permanently ((ShastaCountyHistory.com- Welcome to the Shata County, Californiahistorysite).
Chandler recalls the first battle with the Piute Indian war in 1860, he also recalls the Indians running away from him. The Indians feared the newcomers because they were invading their homes for materials, which they just, did not have knowledge. During this period, it is justified why the Indians escalated conflict with the Anglos; they were exterminated, relocated, and enslaved. The newcomers killed many Indians in the process to become wealthy, by exposing diseases such as the yellow fever, small
The treatment of the native inhabitants varied among the three explorers. The worst treatment of the natives was seen in great detail through the perspective of De Las Casas. During his expedition in the Indies, he and his comrades killed millions of the natives to take everything and anything they wanted. He stated, “And thus they have deprived the Indians of their lives and souls, for the millions I mentioned have died without the Faith and without the benefit of the sacraments. This is a well-known and proven fact which even the tyrant Governors, themselves killers, know and admit.
to the...men and women who died by the hundreds of thousands from accident or sickness, where they worked or where they lived--casualties of progress?...If there are necessary sacrifices to be made for human progress, is it not essential to hold to the principle that those to be sacrificed must make the decision themselves?” (17) The “greater good” attitude discounts the pain and suffering caused in the name of advancement. The celebrated explorer and hero Christopher Columbus exemplifies this. Columbus and his men murdered, tortured, and enslaved the entirety of the Arawak people. Because of his great discovery of the Americas and his favor in the Spanish court, this monstrous genocide is brushed off when looking at the “greater good.”. If one were only to consider his important discovery from the “price of progress” attitude, the pain and suffering of the Arawak people would be totally forgotten and overlooked, losing a very real part of history.
Herman’s family got raided and killed and kidnapped his brother and him. Another raid was the Cathertons when they killed everyone in the house except the baby so Laura and her family questioned if it was Indians that did it. Laura’s family also got their house raided. These are examples of the things Native Americans did to get revenge on the Europeans and make their lives harder than it needed to be. With all of this being said about the Indians and their history and what they have been through this all connects back to Hill Country.
As I have stated already, the main reasons were that they [Klu-Klux-Klan] were killing and brutally murdering black politicians, or even, any random citizen who was either for the “Reconstruction” . The other reason I stated was that they brought to many problems to themselves, that the “Northern Neglect” did not feel like they should be responsible for that. Tens of thousands people who live here all blame the ‘Northern Neglect” for this cause that was once beautiful. If only they would hear my argument on why I believe in what we did to them was very horrible,we were killers. They are just holding a deaf ear, but we can come to conclusion that it was our fault for this act that was once supposed to be a way to make America a land of opportunities, but instead turned it to a land of
