This was from a time when right of conquest was an understandable defense for genocide. People do shitty things, but should their descendants be made responsible for other people's actions? At least they had the chance to sign a document to save their lives. Many people in the past didn't even get that opportunity. I don't reap any benefit from what was done to the native americans, but I have to apologize and pay for your livelihood? The documents they signed to give away land gave their descendants food, healthcare, and housing for time immemorial. How is that an injustice?
