One of those things we’re taught from childhood on is that we, as a people, are evil for what we did to the Indians, excuse me, Native Americans, and are the only people who have ever done such a horrible thing. Hah! Even though I’ve long known that the Native American’s got kicked out by the British, French, and Spanish (something they finally teach one in college,) I just found this bit of news, Sweden’s Sami struggle over land rights. It seems that the Swedes have been oppressing a native people! Cool! Sweden has been around a lot longer than the USA, so that means that we, as a people, are off the hook and everyone can start hating the Swedes as evil repressive monsters instead of directing that sentiment toward us. That’s a load off my mind.
