Whether or not he would find it offensive to be on a 20$ , I simply don't know. It's a possibility.
The point I was making is that Destiny greatly favored him. Could someone please give me examples of other seemingly miraculous happenings following an influential American figure that I might give them the same honor ?
Jackson was also a British killer. He fought people he felt were a threat to the states he Governed and many Natives allied themselves with the British who had not long before burned down Washington DC.
Americans were exhausted, had just been invaded, not respected by Europeans, their ships were being siezed and sailors made slaves, and so in desperation were trying to remove all that seemed to be a threat.
I'm not saying it was good , but it was simply what nations did back then.
Let's reflect on how good can come forth from something cruel like the Mexican War. People in Mexico are fleeing from their corrupt government to have a better life here.
Those states would be more miserable to live in were they still under that government, and people would be fleeing them as well.
Now, another thing is when you call Andrew Jackson an Indian killer , take into account that many of the Indians were also Indian killers .
Indians were not united and many tribes hated each other and were butchering each other before white people ever showed up.
Hence, Native American treatment of other Natives was also inhumane. I'm not being racist , just stating a fact for the sake of balance.
What white people have done is absolutely terrible and inhumane , and I am very sad to read that s***. Yet if you look at the nations nowadays where people are treated most inhumanely, it is in countries that are predominantly not white .
As it stands, you are mocking Jackson and everything he stands for.
Jackson's war with the Native Americans is no more racist than Napoleon invading Spain, Prussia, or Russia.
It was no more racist than the Rwanda genocide or the way people butcher each other in Somalia, Congo, Iraq Syria, or Nigeria.
It was no more racist than Native American tribes killing each other or the Aztecs savagely mutilating and sacrificed their own people and butchering their Native neighbors.
