That's just it. It was "those" White people who did horrible things to the natives, not all White people. And let's not forget natives who sold out their own people, Black Africans who knowingly sold their own tribesmen (and POWs) into slavery, et cetera.
I just don't see the logic in turning these things into a race issue. If the colonists were purple and the natives green it still would've happened.
Then again, a lot of White Americans seem to feel "ashamed" of things that they themselves did not do, simply because a few people who kinda sorta looked like them did unsavory things way back when. Evey race has oppressed and slaughtered another, whitey don't have the monopoly on that.
