Hey Ramon, control your political agenda here out of respect for the loss of life. This sort of extremist "solution" IS part of the problem.

Yeah that is what Jesus taught - be as devoid of compassion as possible, want people to suffer. No such thing as an accident so you choose to follow Pontius Pilate?

Yes, it is real. Who would have thought Charles Robinson was a superintendent at Haskell?

There was no "indian problem" and boarding schools were not nice places. Assimilation and extermination are ugly things. Motto at haskell was "kill the indian, save the man." Children were beaten for speaking their languages, MANY died from diseases and sexual abuse was rampant.

That term is more than a derogatory ethnic slur and using it shows that even today people feel justified completely disregarding indigenous people.
