Euro-American Sins

Euro-Americans killed an average of 81 American Indians, every day, for a period of 400 years; that is an average of 29,408 American Indians killed per year, for 400 years.
The North American Indian population was estimated at 12 million in 1500; the population was 237,000 in 1900. This is genocide. This is a holocaust.

Euro-Americans killed an average of 3,288 buffalo a day, for a period of 50 years; that is an average of 1.2 million buffalo killed per year, for 50 years. Estimates put the peak bison population, during the mid-1800s, near 60 million. Less than 400 wild bison were left by 1893. This is despite the fact that a mature bison bull weighs approximately 2,000 pounds while a mature bison cow weighs approximately 1,100 pounds. During one contest, a person from Kansas set a buffalo killing record, killing 120 buffalo in 40 minutes.

Euro-Americans shipped approximately 11,863,000 Africans across the Atlantic, with a death rate during the Middle Passage reducing this number by 10-20 percent. As a result between 9.6 and 10.8 million Africans arrived in the Americas. About 500,000 Africans were imported into what is now the U.S. between 1619 and 1807–or about 6 percent of all Africans forcibly imported into the Americas. About 70 percent arrived directly from Africa.

In addition, it now seems clear that during the era of the Atlantic slave trade, many and perhaps most of the enslaved were kept in Africa. It is imaginable that as many as 60 million Africans died or were enslaved as a result of these various slave trades.

The Union victory in the American Civil War (1861-65), freed 4 million slaves.

Now imprisonment has taken the place of slavery in America.

During South African apartheid, the prison rate for black male South Africans, under immensely unfair laws, was 851 per 100,000. In America today, young black men face a rate of imprisonment effectively ten times that number at 10,000 prisoners per 100,000.
