How can the Cherokee people on the one hand expect the Federal Government for compensation and finanical support for their loss of their traditional homelands and then on the other hand commit atrocities towards other human beings of a different race by making them their slaves? This seems a bit hyprocritical, don't you think? When someone does it to you, they're the bad guys, and they need to pay up forever? But when you do it to someone else, you aren't beholden to do likewise? You can't play both the victim and conquistador, because it just doesn't wash.
