The English were just as bad, they started the smallpox blankets.

Alexander the great used biological warfare after all, so it鈥檚 not like you can pretend the concept was alien to them, they wrote about it. Besides they did plenty of old fashioned killing too, there were Spanish conquistadors that estimated their own personal, individual killings might have numbered over the ten thousands. They were sure they鈥檇 killed more than ten million in 鈥淣ew Spain鈥 alone. They crucified people they smashed babies on the rocks, they set fire to buildings they forced women and children into and cooked their meals over the burning corpses, they loosed war dogs on people. They sold children into sex slavery to be raped by disease riddled pedos back in Europe and if taking their virginity didn鈥檛 cure the sick creeps the native children would be killed or sometimes sent back. The English were just as bad, shooting children in front of their mothers and forcing them to mop their blood with their hair. Turning human scalps into currency. Feeding babies to dogs in front of their mothers and fathers. Killing whole villages and erasing them from their maps so that historians would think God had made it empty just for the English. The Americans after them burned crops and drove several species of bison to extinction just to starve the plains tribes. They pushed the blankets too. On top of the wars of extermination and scalp hunting and concentration and laws defining natives as non-persons so that we鈥檇 never be protected by the Constitution. And even if you wanna live in some dreamy fairytale where God just made a whoopsie and then there were no natives left, nobody forced them to erase our history. The Spanish burned every document they found to erase the literacy and literary tradition of the Central and South Americans. There are essentially three Aztec documents left and some excavated pottery, and some archeological inscriptions and that鈥檚 it. The single most advanced culture in math and anatomical medicine erased probably forever. Same to the Inca, the most advanced fiber and alloy engineers and economists gone forever. Nobody made them do that. Nobody forced the American colonizers to steal political technology and act like they invented democracy or sovereignty. Nobody forced them to build their cities on top of native ones and erase them from history forever. Baltimore was built on Chesapeake, which translates roughly to 鈥渃ity at the top of the great water鈥 in most Algonquin tongues. My favorite example is Cumberland in Western MD, they didn鈥檛 even reshape the roads or anything, they paved the steps and walking paths natives had used for hundreds of years and now it鈥檚 almost impossible to drive cuz the streets are too narrow or steep. The culture that built them didn鈥檛 have horses. Phoenix AZ, called Phoenix cuz the settlers literally found an old city and 鈥渂rought it back to life.鈥 Did they save any history or cultural artifacts?
