Default Who Has Suffered the Most Through History?

Is it the blacks that were held in slavery for a couple of hundred years? Or the American Indians who lands were taken from him here in America.

Can't forget about the Jews that lost 6 million during Hitler's regime.

How about the poor Irish who have suffered under the hand of the English for over 1,000 years.

And so on so u get my point.

I would have to say the Jews first. They have been persceuted longer than any race I can think of going back to the days of Moses.

They were hated in most the countries they lived in even England back in the 1500's, 1600's and 1700's.

I'm part Cherokee Indian so I'm a little prejudice, but the poor Indians lost all their land and a lot of them lost their lives. The "Trail of Tears". They were brutally transported under the authority of Andrew Jackson.

The poor Irish have probably lost over 1,000,000 due to England's aggression behavior and hatred toward the Irish.

How about the Mexicans that lost so much land and soldiers killed in battle under President Polk in the Mexican War? The U.S. was the aggressor during this war in my opinion.

I guess almost every race or nationality can say they have suffered under some regime or persons.

TO answer the question, it is the Native Americans. They were nearly wiped off the face of the globe. We didn't just take their land - genocide occurred.

I would say the Jews. I hate to say this, but there is a classic Family Guy that has the Jews back in Egypt being whipped as slaves and one says to other "hey, don't worry, every culture suffers once in their time... we're getting ours over early... from here on out, it'll be nothing be smooth sailing for us Jews!"

Don't forget people that are left-handed. We've had it pretty ruff for a long time!
