Thank you very much for posting this. I've been saying for years that the American Indian was treated worse than any group on this list. But, everyone of those groups has been screwed.

Little known fact.  The British also imported white slaves to the Americas, and continued to sell their convicts into slavery to other British colonies even after the war of independence.

Indentured servants, from the time of the Civil War (1642-51) and through to the Jacobite uprising of 1745-46. A  mix of Scots, Irish both Catholic and Protestant, Welsh and of course English. Britain outlawed all slavery in 1807, with the last colonies doing away with it by 1833. And indentured servant would be free after seven years of consentual contract work or punishment.

Assuming they lived the full seven years.  Lot of evidence that many young children were also forcibly sold into indentured service and were literally worked to death during their time working the tobacco plantations in the south.

The reputation of how harsh the american colonies were and how bad the life was for indentured servants caused many criminals in Britain to request hanging instead of being sold to the colonies.

Back in the 60's even people with long hair were discriminated against.  I had long hair and drove a van and was pulled over and searched for drugs numerous times.  If I stuffed my hair under a baseball cap I was left alone.

Yup. And been refused motel rooms, service in restaurants and bars, and told to leave town by police. Even got threatened with jail if I entered a town once. Not even mentioning all the times I was pulled over for questioning for no reason.

Very true. As bad as a lot of Reservation land is I bet if something important was discovered there they would be escoteted to an even "better" piece of ground so we could take it.

Talk to the Osage.  Thanks to the prescience of Chief Big Hart, the tribe members are raking in money on head rights, but it also put a price on their heads back in the day, which was why the FBI built such a large complex in OKC, all those pesky accidents involving the Osage, liquor and parking their vehicles on the railroad tracks...

To give you an idea just how well they treated and thought of orphans sent to the New World back then, they were used to ferry small pox vaccine (aka cow pox). Figure out the length of time to go from infection to pustules that could be harvested, divide length of trip by that number to get the number of orphans per ship needed to ferry the cow pox across and have a viable infected kid available to use to use for inoculation at the end.

I don’t know if you could get treated much worse than the Jews in Nazi Germany.
