Lightbulb 100 million Native American genocide?

Hi there,

I was reading this article in a Russian new site , and the author quotes the figure of 100 million native deaths in the genocide perpetrated by "pilgrims" to the new world.

https://sputniknews.com/analysis/201...james-clapper/

I couldn't resources on the genetic excuse used by foreigners to kill natives in America, and I'd appreciate some links. The author quoted DE Stannard and his book American Holocaust. Is he a reputed source?

Most of the article is about the ongoing political tussle between the United States and Russia but there is some justified references to Standing Rock and other injustices meted out to First Nations people.

Wow. Who said the old Soviet-style propaganda journalism is dead. That article was so 1970's Pravda, with a nice dash of old fashioned inferior gene eugenics thrown in.

The genetic lunacy aside, the number Mr Maavak cites from David Stannard's American Holocaust (Oxford University Press, 1992) is at the extreme upper end for contact causality figures. Coming on the eve of the quincentenary, his numbers were wildly controversial at the time. Even more disputed was his assignation of the genocidal holocaust to what many scholars were/are calling democide (sans genocide).

There is an old cynical Russian saying (some say a political joke)

In the Pravda was never an Izwestia and in the Izvestia was never a Pravda.

Pravda = truth
Izvestia = news

The theme itself should not be subject of propaganda but sincere devoted to the truth in my opinion.

The number of Natives who were on the North American continent at the point of European contact ranges as low as 24 million to 120 million estimate. It all depends which scholar, ethnologist, anthropologist, archaeologist, linguist or historian you ask.

Nobody knows. Nobody was there. There was not an accurate census then or now to give an accurate number of Natives.

One thing we do know for sure is that by 1900, there were only 250,000 Natives left. . .
