Sadly, racism against Amerindians is the oldest form of Eurmerican "racism" predating that against blacks for the simple reason that Indians were to be slaves before blacks were. It may not be as overt as that against blacks, but then Amerindians are typically thought of as 4% of the population (where a full count would make it more like 25%, in accordance with other New World countries) which negates a lot of it because most people haven't even met an Indian.

What do you mean by "a full count"? And a comparison with other New World countries isn't really valid considering that the US engaged in far more thorough genocide than other New World nations, so that's why the number is so low.

Namely a count that takes in all people with a degree of Amerindian blood.

And technically, the US did not engage in more genocide, Indians are growing again in numbers, while in Brazil they are at their lowest point ever and Argentina has fewer Indians than the US did despite being relatively populated for that part of South America. And given that all mainland New World societies have Indian populations but they are at least not recognize as existing on the islands......

I'm 1/16th Iriquois. On my father's side, though; Iriquois are matrilineal, so they wouldn't accept me or Dad (it was his grandfather) in the tribe.

Which is part of what I mean, if people like you or like others I know with small portions of Amerindian blood were counted, the total percentage is more in line with Latin American countries (excluding illegal immigrants of Amerindian blood) than is commonly thought.
