To an extent he\’s right, he over eggs it more than a tad but yes, the near genocide of the Native Americans was indeed an appalling chapter in history.
But to see it purely as a crime that \”we\”, the white folks, committed upon \”they\” the brown folks, is hugely too simplistic. Or at least, to see it as unique in that respect is.
For in our own dear islands we could tell very much the same story about what the Celts did to the first arrivals (not even sure what they were called actually), the Angles, Saxons and Jutes to the Romano-Celts, the Vikings to the Angles etc in the North, the Normans to all of them and so on.
The Visigoths to the Iberians (erm, or was it Ostrogoths? Vandals?), various Turkic tribes to the Byzantines and Greek cities of Asia Minor, Mongols to just about everyone and so on (Alans, Circassians, Scythians, Huns, Aryans in India, Han Chinese, make your own list really).
Human history is littered with the corpses of such conquests. Yes, by disease as much as by active measures (the Black Death is often said to have been enabled by the Mongols running a single trade route right across Asia).
Those of us around today are inevitably the descendants of those who \”won\” such contests. The Americas were distinctive in only two ways: it all happened more recently than most of the others and disease was more important for the population was less resistant as a result of isolation.
