There are those who continually complain about the massive numbers of refugees who are seeking new homes in more economically advanced nations. People like Dylann Roof believe that the United States of America is being overwhelmed by the hordes of people heading for our shores. Europe believe their very existence is threatened by African or Muslim “invaders” seeking to “take over their nations.” A brief examination of history makes clear this is not the first such “invasion,” and those of the past were much more severe.
1. Thousands of years ago Neanderthals were invaded by Cro-Magnons who soon took over their lands and sent them into extinction.
2. Invaders from England and other European nations not only invaded the New World, but wiped out untold millions in the process.
3. MY parents were among the horde of dirty, poor, desperate invaders who came to America seeking a new life. Between 1890-1925 about TWENTY FIVE MILLION IMMIGRANTS FROM EUROPE arrived in America. Just about everything being said concerning Africans or Muslims was said about this group.
Newcomers have been wandering from one place to another for about 50,000 years, Calm down, one day the newcomers will be the oldcomers and saying the same things about the newcomers!
