If you read further than 12th grade History, you realize that
Christopher Columbus's established slave trade was
responsible for the enslavement of Hispaniola, and the
deaths of millions (@ 5.5 million, IIRC) of "American" natives.
The Native American Indian was agrarian in nature, and scalping
was a "White" or "civilized" tradition. But the victors get to write
history, and the textbook purchasers get to influence the information
provided in "accurate" public school textbooks.
Will we wind up giving our guns to the "victors"? When we do, we will have lost,
and then they will make up grand stories glorifying themselves, and vilifying us,
as they did the American Indian.
