not to mention a history of that preceds Columbus were African people were welcomed with open arms.
As far as indigenous ownership- most indigenous people didnt believe in such terms but seeing as "palefaces" robbed them of their homes* I dont think they would mind us striking that claim and opposing the supposed "manifest destiny"
*Native Americans werent dismayed at having their land stolen- you cant steal land- its when their villages were burned that they got pissed.
