Sorry, I feel bad what happened to your people, but you lost. Yes the “great white father lied”; but he’s lied to us “white folk” too. Reference social security . Unfortunately “might makes right”.

“Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and their freedoms”
― Robert A. Heinlein, Starship Troopers
