sooner or later, what happened to the native Americans would happen, with or without Columbus
As it happened in Australia with the Aborigines, and also, as it happens, in Africa when the Bantu speakers came in contact with the Pygmies, and in East Asia, and on and on. Nor was the New World a peaceful paradise full of flower children.
To be clear, I don't support brutality by anyone, and what has happened to these societies world-wide is a tragedy, but history can't be reduced to evil white men versus the rest of the world. It's dishonest and it's divisive and destructive. It is also, as you can see, how history is being taught in American schools.
