Chang Follow @sophchang European settlers killed 56 million indigenous people over about 100 years 56 million It took a long time for me to process that figure CNN @CNN European colonizers killed so many Native Americans that it changed the global climate researchers say cnnit2DR3W1c 945 AM -3 Feb 2019 1872 Retweets 2388 Likes Follow @RadRoopa Replying to @sophchang And to think the world population in 1900 was only 15 billion compared to today's 75 billion I don't know what the world pop was like in 1500 but 56 millions would've been a HUGE percentage of that That astronomical number is definitely hard to process 925 PM - 3 Feb 2019 Follow @RadRoopa Replying to @RadRoopa @sophchang I just looked it up and the world pop in 1600 was about 570 million They wiped out TEN PERCENT of the world's population That's the equivalent of 750 million ppl today Whoa 950 PM - 3 Feb 2019 evergreennightmare red-stick-progressive aossidhboyee red-stick-progressive burdenbasket gahdamnpunk This is insane holy fuck this is A LOT Also that figure is way too low modern population estimates might be as much as twice that There were between 25 and 40 million in central Mexico alone almost as many people in the North Amazon almost as many in the Andes and almost as many in the American South All saw 80 to 99 percent population loss in the period of 2 to 3 generations The Greater Mississippi River Basin had a population somewhere between 5 and 12 million the Eastern Woodlands had about as many about as many in the Central Amazon and almost as many on the American West Coast and North West Coast respectively All of which saw 85 to 99 percent population losses in 2 or three generations after the others Multiple factions if European interests killed all the natives they could and destroyed all the culture and history they could They were not limited by gender language religion culture ethnic group nationality geography or time period just every single person they could That’s not even genocide it’s apocalypse Why are you all omitting the well known fact that it was not purposeful genocide but simply new microbes introduced that no one knew about at that time Cuz that’s not true Tw genocide tw violence When Columbus realized the pigs they brought were getting the Islanders sick he arranged to loose as many as possible ahead of them primarily into the Benne region I believe Cortez loaded sickened corpses into Tenochtitlan’s aqueducts Spain deliberately targeted the priests of Mexican society first because they knew it would severely undermine the public ability to treat disease When the post Incan city states developed a treatment for malaria the Spanish deliberately targeted the cities producing the quinine treatment and made it illegal to sell it to non-christians The Spanish took all the sick and forced them at sword-point to go back to their homes instead of to the sick houses or the temples throughout the new world and forced anyone who wasn’t sick to work in the mines or the coin factories melting and pressing their cultural treasures down into Spanish coins The English were just as bad they started the smallpox blankets A lot of the loss was not deliberate infections like this but it was preventable at a million different crossroads and every European culture took the opportunity to weaponize the plagues when they could They knew what they were doing just cuz they didn’t know what germs were doesn’t mean they have some accidental relationship with it Alexander the great used biological warfare after all so it’s not like you can pretend the concept was alien to them they wrote about it Besides they did plenty of old fashioned killing too there were Spanish conquistadors that estimated their own personal individual killings might have numbered over the ten thousands They were sure they’d killed more than ten million in “New Spain” alone They crucified people they smashed babies on the rocks they set fire to buildings they forced women and children into and cooked their meals over the burning corpses they loosed war dogs on people They sold children into sex slavery to be raped by disease riddled pedos back in Europe and if taking their virginity didn’t cure the sick creeps the native children would be killed or sometimes sent back The English were just as bad shooting children in front of their mothers and forcing them to mop their blood with their hair Turning human scalps into currency Feeding babies to dogs in front of their mothers and fathers Killing whole villages and erasing them from their maps so that historians would think God had made it empty just for the English The Americans after them burned crops and drove several species of bison to extinction just to starve the plains tribes They pushed the blankets too On top of the wars of extermination and scalp hunting and concentration and laws defining natives as non-persons so that we’d never be protected by the Constitution And even if you wanna live in some dreamy fairytale where God just made a whoopsie and then there were no natives left nobody forced them to erase our history The Spanish burned every document they found to erase the literacy and literary tradition of the Central and South Americans There are essentially three Aztec documents left and some excavated pottery and some archeological inscriptions and that’s it The single most advanced culture in math and anatomical medicine erased probably forever Same to the Inca the most advanced fiber and alloy engineers and economists gone forever Nobody made them do that Nobody forced the American colonizers to steal political technology and act like they invented democracy or sovereignty Nobody forced them to build their cities on top of native ones and erase them from history forever Baltimore was built on Chesapeake which translates roughly to “city at the top of the great water” in most Algonquin tongues My favorite example is Cumberland in Western MD they didn’t even reshape the roads or anything they paved the steps and walking paths natives had used for hundreds of years and now it’s almost impossible to drive cuz the streets are too narrow or steep The culture that built them didn’t have horses Phoenix AZ called Phoenix cuz the settlers literally found an old city and “brought it back to life” Did they save any history or cultural artifacts? No Most cities on the east coast are like this Nobody forced them to erase that history Colonizers are not innocent just cuz the germs did a lot of the work of the apocalypse tlaxcallān had a democratic form of government Meme
