    Here, here! When I watch some of these modern day whiners complaining about trivial things, I want to say, “You think you got it bad … what about the Am. Indians who lost it all?”

    Although I’m not Canadian, I think Canada’s name for Native Americans is even better: “First Nations.”

    Indians live in India? Ever been to a gas station, a Dunkin’ Donuts or a 7-Eleven in New Jersey? ;-)

    However, I absolutely adore Sikh Indians (the ones who wear turbans). They are the nicest people I have ever met! By the way, unlike Hindus who worship a pantheon of gods, Sikhs worship just one god.

    Sikhs are Hindus too. Better stick to American history. ;-)

    My sentiments precisely. Thank you for stating it so well.

    Three cents in 1803 is equal to about $4.30 today. Still a good deal, but it wasn’t the tiny amount that folks think it was.

    Gee just flag down a taxi in Oz and you will 99.9% find an Indian driver. In fact there aren’t too many places in Oz where you can’t find someone of Indian birth. Even the call centres are outsourced overseas to…guess where.

    My doctor is from India. I complimented her on her ability to study medicine, and she said that they are taught english in India’s schools.

    I work as an engineer, and about 75% (and sometimes more) of my colleagues are from India. I usually refer to myself as Indian instead of Native American around them just to keep things fun ;)

    Natives Americans, despite how badly they were treated, helped during WWII to bring down the Nazi regime.

    @gmartin997 — We can’t give those people back their land, and they do not currently want it back — because those people don’t exist anymore. They are long dead.

    And no, their descendants have no claim at this point, any more than I have claim to vast stretches of land in Europe that my ancestors lost to the Romans.

    Every single one of us have ancestors that got screwed. Welcome to the history of the human race. Let’s all give each other a penny and move on.
