But this is 200+ years later and most of the descendants are gone now. Many of us have ancestors that came here after being forced off their land in European countries and there is no chance we could go back and claim that land. I was quite surprised that Timbo described the Indians that are now left as "a few leftover rag-tag tribes".
You couldn't be more wrong. Atrocities have happened far more recently and other examples of such treatment still exist today.

All the more reason why Native American's are entitled to certain restitutions.
Please tell me what what atrocities have been brought upon Native Americans recently and other examples that still exist today.

And tell me what "certain restitutions" you think they are are intitled to.

If you can tell me these two things, you may yet convince me you have something worthwhile to contribute to this discussion. I am serious.
