Indians were underachieving immigrants

Verdun:  Native "immigrants" merely existed, had no farming

Poor baby Canuck expatriate! Barbados, eh? He couldn't take the cold, so he got out of the refrigerator. But his brain spoiled in the interim. He actually believes that his lamentations are not racist and he spells 'tracts' of land as 'tracks' of land. Interesting to learn that the civilizations of the Maya and the Inca and the Aztec and even the Anasazi were 'simple' and otherwise unaccomplished with all the 'simple' pyramids and polished stone cities and celestial observatories and even the Anasazi tall house that was the highest building in North America until the first New York skyscraper was built in the early 20th century.
And, oh, yes, the 'Natives' did suffer at the hands of EuroMan, falling from a population of 110 millions in North America in 1492 to less than 1 million in 1892. But they should be grateful for the advantages and perquisites provided so fulsomely by EuroMan's societies, instead of opening illegal casinoes and selling cheap tobacco products.
This one should win your Stereotype of The Month thingy, plus writerfella will be enclosing a Fickle Finger of Fate Award, as well. Instructions? Simple: sit on it and rotate...
