Genetic Cleansing Around the world: past & present
Genetic Cleansing means the mass expulsion or killing of members of an unwanted ethnic or religious group in a society.
Did you need know Ethnic Cleansing is the same as Genetic Cleansing?
Ethnic cleansing can be understood as an "undesirable" population from a territory by religious or ethnic discrimination.
Massacre and Expulsion were common methods of religious cleansing. In other words its the forced removal of ethnic or religious groups from a given territory with the intent of making it ethnically.
Forced migration, (deportation,population transfer)and mass murder.
Ethnic cleansing has taken many forms. The forced resettlement of a "politically unreliable" population-one conquered and incorporated into an empire yet still likely to rebel-dates from the eighth century BC.
When we think of genetic cleansing the first big event that we all come to think of would probably be during World War 2, with the Jewish Concentration Camps. But did you know that genetic cleansing actually was used way before the the 20th century. With ancient civilizations, though before it was less practiced and usually never went to the extreme of what World War 2 caused Hitler and all the Nazis to.
Under this definition, then, the slow dispersal and annihilation of North America's indigenous population was indeed ethnic cleansing.
