Wow, that was great to watch. Instead of tearing each other down, they had positive things to say which is what we all should be doing. Only small critique was not including more racial groups of people, but I understand they didn't want it to go on for too long.

Except lots of it was bullshit. Nobody genocided the indians for example. I could go on but I'm bored.

Genocide maybe not completely intentional, but European disease definitely did a number on the natives and was pivotal to the west taking over.

"Within just a few generations, the continents of the Americas were virtually emptied of their native inhabitants – some academics estimate that approximately 20 million people may have died in the years following the European invasion – up to 95% of the population of the Americas.

No medieval force, no matter how bloodthirsty, could have achieved such enormous levels of genocide. Instead, Europeans were aided by a deadly secret weapon they weren't even aware they were carrying: Smallpox."

Genocide is always intentional. Disease is something else. Few people know but the US did try to genocide the Philippines after the Spanish American war but it's not talked about very much these days.
