    In America our ancestors basically did the same thing to the Native Americans as the Nazis did to the Jews and Gypsies (i.e. genocide, ghettoization, usurpation of property, etc..), yet there is little taboo in regards to it, if any at all. Even the reparations they've been demanding for hundreds of years have been tied up in the courts and hardly paid out (and even if they were paid in full, would not equal a fraction of what Germany has paid out to states such as Israel). In terms of genocide, far more Native Americans were killed compared to the Holocaust, and it went on for many, many more years (being advocated by men like Teddy Roosevelt... who lived between 1858-1919... which is to say it wasn't just a colonial thing).
