The seventh great race war – The Amerinds
The settlement of North America by the White race in a wave of immigration was achieved only at the expense of the non-White people already living on the continent: the Amerinds, or “Red Indians.” The settlement of North America by the Whites is an outstanding example of the principle which has underlain every single rise and fall of every civilization: before the Whites arrived, North American culture was Amerind: after the Whites arrived and replaced the Amerinds as the majority population, White culture replaced the original civilization, virtually overnight.
The eternal truth of this simple and obvious principle was dramatically proven in the seventh great race war in which the Whites found themselves embroiled: a struggle which ultimately saw the United States of America extend its borders to the Pacific Ocean.
Amerinds of Mongoloid stock
Unlike the ancient Indo-Europeans the indigenous peoples of America were not of distantly related genetic stock, as were the Old Europeans: they were of Mongoloid racial stock, only called “Indians” because the first White explorers were looking for India; and only called “red” because of their habit of wearing red clay as face paint.
Amerinds attack white settlers
The initial friendly contact soon gave way when the Amerinds realized that the Whites were thereafter arriving as settlers. From the time of the very first White settlements, even going back to the Viking landings in Newfoundland, the White pioneers were subjected to attacks by resentful Amerind tribes, who realized that the Whites represented a serious threat to their way of life, society and civilization, and tried their best to drive the settlers back into the sea. Against the superior White technology, however, the Amerinds really stood little chance.
In fact the very first English settlement in North America, a 117 strong group of White pioneers, situated on an island off the coast of North Carolina, was probably wiped out by an Amerind attack. Called the “lost colony”, they were destroyed some time between 1587 and 1590. Their remains were never found, which would have been the case had they starved to death or met some other natural end.
In Virginia, the first successful large scale English colony, which was established in 1607, was subjected to repeated attacks by the Powhatan tribe which culminated in 1622, when 350 Whites were killed by the Amerinds in a single attack: as there were only just over 1000 Whites in the colony at the time, this reduced the entire White population by one third.
In April 1644, another attack by the Powhatan killed 500 more Whites: this very nearly destroyed the colony utterly. Incensed, the surviving Whites set out to exact retribution: a short vicious campaign followed which saw the Amerind tribes wilt and retreat inland.
[After describing the racial wars of the 18th century Kemp writes:]
Whites eaten by Amerinds at Fort Mims
In Alabama, the Creek Amerinds seized Fort Mims in 1812, cruelly massacring all the White inhabitants—men, women and children—and then engaging in a cannibalistic orgy on the remains of all the Whites they could find in the settlement.
Shocked, an avenging White army under Andrew Jackson was sent south: after two years of conflict the Creek were finally, decisively defeated at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend in March 1814. Andrew Jackson then went on to be elected President of the United States in 1828: his first hand experiences with the Amerinds made him turn a deaf ear to the liberals of the eastern seaboard and it was largely as a result of his maneuverings that the next great event in White-Amerind history was to take place in 1830.
The Removal Act – Indians moved west of Mississippi
By 1830, the numbers of Whites in the region between the Mississippi River and the Appalachian Mountains—essentially the present day mid-eastern states of America—had reached the point where it was no longer possible to efficiently regulate the very often violent interaction between the Whites and the Amerinds. In May of that year, the US Congress passed the Indian Removal Act, which empowered the president of the United States to move Amerinds west of the Mississippi, to the officially declared “Indian Territory”—the Midwest of America, and in particular the state now known as Oklahoma.
To the White liberals on the Eastern Seaboard, the Removal Act was an outrage perpetuated by the same people who owned Black slaves, and they opposed it as best they could. The Removal Act would become another factor in the political divide amongst the Whites in America.
Racial consequences of the Amerind wars
Apart from the seizure of their land, which was brought about not primarily through military defeat but the simple swamping of that territory by Whites (yet another example of how a change in population causes a change in culture), the Amerind-White wars produced two significant results:
• Firstly, the Amerinds were virtually eliminated as a political, racial and socio-demographic factor; this situation allowed for the final flooding of North America by Whites, with all its resultant consequences for world history with the creation of the United States of America;
• Secondly, the subjugation of the Amerinds by masses of Whites led to a certain amount of racial mixing between the two groups taking place: but, it being America with its officially-endorsed disapproval of racial mixing (which lasted in legal form right into the middle of the 20th century, with anti-miscegenation laws still being on the statute books as late as 1967 in many states) those mixed-race persons born of White-Amerind unions—or indeed of Black-Amerind unions, were re-absorbed back into the Amerind population. This is the reason why many Amerinds may look fairer or darker than Mongolian peoples or may have markedly non-Mongolian facial features: true blood Amerinds are fairly rare, and most Amerinds have either some direct or indirect White or Black ancestry.
