It all seems pretty ironic to me. Flee europe from the crusades, then come to the americas and kill everything here. Then invade Canada. My family came over to pennsylvania during the crusades, then during the american revolution fled to Canada, then ended up having to fight the US in the war of 1812. Just couldn't escape the violence.
Not a problem. Would you like me to put you in touch with some people to celebrate with?
the american indian was the most oppressed in the history of the us. not only did we treat them as sub human; we recorded history to make them look like the aggressors. remember wounded knee? what we did to the american indian was dispicable. i sell all my buffalo meat and hides to american indians at cost in a way to say i'm sorry for what happened. and my family didn't immigrate here until the early 1900's. there was enough land for everyone. we had no right to slaughter them.

I don't mean to be picky but the crusades occurred between 1095-1291. Pennsylvania wasn't settled by Europeans till about 1680 when King Charles II granted the land to William Penn. There is about a 400 years discrepency there
I agree 100%
I think it's sad to see Native American tribes having to resort to opening a casino just so they can support themselves nowadays.
What the US government did should never be forgotten, and we will never be able to fully repay them for all the pain and suffering we have caused their people, but what you are doing is very kind and generous, thank you.
Just because they are the majority doesn't mean that they are the only one's that are the problem. Second hispanics don't expect or demand that they be catered to as far as language. Yes there are those that refuse to learn the language just like there are other people from other walks of life who come here and refuse to learn the language. Don't make it seem like hispanics are the only ones that come here and refuse to learn English. None of the reasons you gave justifies hispanics being singled out.
Dude, that's what happened.
That's not entirely true. There are plenty of scholarships that do not take financial need in to consideration but they do take color. So a rich balck kid gets the $ while the poor white kid wors at McD's.
I also think your second statement is part of the problem. I'm a white male and I'm no king. You are trying to make up for crap in the past by harming people that had nothing to do with any of it.
the poor white kid was born with an advantage over the rich black kid.
in the 50s, the black man had less of a chance to get rich. the white man had all the advantages.
50 years ago was a long time. why not piss and moan over what happened a few hundred years ago. crying over the past keeps us from solving the problems of the present. we shouldn't forget what happened but why cry over it. put the past behind you and move forward.
i'm willing to bet you weren't even alive in the 50's so what's your problem with it?

Just like the Crusades of 1600's happened too>?
I don't think so, but possibly. Depends on how you define "Crusades" the War on Terror is commonly considered to be a "Crusade" called "the Tenth Crusade"
That is the biggest load of crap I've ever heard.
It is not "commonly considered" to be a crusade at all. That is total hogwash and cannot be proven at all. The article you cited says nothing but some dude's opinion and an artistic rendition of Bush as a Knight of the Templar.
Being considered a crusade by a handfull of people does not equate to being commonly known.
What definition are you using?
belonging to or shared by two or more individuals or things or by all members of a group <a common friend> <buried in a common grave> b: belonging equally to two or more mathematical entities <triangles with a common base> c: having two or more branches <common carotid artery>

LAST TIME I CHECKED THE CRUSADES WAS A JESUS THING. NOT A GEORGE BUSH THING
my problem is I hate injustice, and its not always easy for those involved to forgive and forget.
Much of my family perished in the Nazi Holocaust.....my generation of the family all have good lives, we have moved forward, but we will never put the past behind us.
most of my family was enslaved by hitler and forced to work in factories and on farms. they were killed towards the end of the war. what was left came to america as displaced people or DPs as we were called. we came here as poor dirt farmers and turned it all around.
My family came from Germany and was killed by your family in the USA.

With the approach and close of the American Revolution in the thirteen colonies, the Mennonites found themselves persecuted by their refusal to partake in political events in North America. Again, their religious opposition to war and search for a peaceful and segregated existence, with little or no involvement with state, was affected by their uneasy years in North America.
One example of the persecution faced by Mennonites was given in G. Elmore Reaman's book "The Trail of the Black Walnut" and Thomas A. Sherk's book "The Sherk Family" that:
"Sherk is a well-known name in the Niagara Peninsula. The original settler who spelled his name Schorg came from Lancaster County, in Pennsylvania in 1789, the revolutionists having burned his home because he sympathized with the British and harboured their officers."
Thomas Sherk clarified the point that this particular Sherk was Casper Sherk (Code H44), the son of my ancestral Grandfather Joseph Scherch (Code H4) whom I had described earlier. This is but one example of the many possible persecutions that may have existed at that time, which resulted in the migration of some Mennonites who had been loyal to the British crown, and to Upper Canada. Their loyalty was a result of the crown helping them to immigrate from Europe and settle in the colonies in earlier years.
Dude, I've got like a complete history of my family right here on CD. With lots of historical references.
do you have a television? haven't you seen the mexican marches waving the mexican flag; or the cuban marches waving the cuban flag? what about gay pride marches and black marches? are these not groups? do they not promote their ideals? what about groups like the naacp? where have you been?
