Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,
What groups, other than LDS, have been the subject of extermination or similar orders in US history?
- Oppressed Mormon, so do I get reparations?

A: Dear Mormon,

I can't find any other extermination orders per se, but the Sioux, Natchez and Cherokee were all victims of state-sponsored acts of cruelty, and I would imagine their numbers suffered far more than ours did under Governor Boggs.

A: Dear Oppressed,

In the 1860's, when the U.S. government imprisoned the Navajo people Bosque Renondo, they (the Navajo people) ended up losing about 25% of their number, or roughly 2,000 people to starvation and disease.
