Human Beings…

Omaha, NB -Durham Museum

What makes American does not just include it bright side but also its dark side. I came across this sign in the Durham Museum in Omaha a few years ago. One of America’s dark sides was our treatment of the original inhabitants of our continent. As they were systematically being destroyed they were not even consider human beings. Killing a native American was now worse than killing a dog.  Finally in 1881 they were legally recognized as human beings.
