As I am sure you expected, the word "genocide" is loaded and controversial. The majority of Americans are appalled at the Nazi and Khmer Rouge crimes against humanity. Likely they would be equally appalled at labeling their forebears actions against Native Americans as "genocide." The importance of agreed definitions beyond one's own positions, is once again clear and urgent. Especially given what is prsently happening at this second, in Darfur (and no doubt elsewhere.)
