I truely do not understand how my "spiritual ancestors" are the White
Americans Who Destroyed The Indians when not one person in my family
stepped foot on this hemisphere until 1903. And they left the
countries they came from because the people there were killing my
physical ancestors' families. Could you explain why I should take on
that particular burden of guilt?
