Ethnic Cleansing
Ethnic cleansing is a term that most people in the United States find unfamiliar. This seems a bit odd, being that ethnic cleansing is the way in which we acquired this fine nation from the natives that had been living here for who knows how long. While researching this topic, three definitions seemed to stand out in best describing this atrocity. Ethnical cleansing: 1) ?is the systematic removal of a group of people identified by ethnicity from a certain area. This may be done through genocide (killing) or forced migration,? 2) ?the removal or extermination of a racial or cultural group,? and 3) ?the mass expulsion and killing of one ethnic or religious group in an area by another ethnic or religious group in that area.? It is safe to say that the term ethnic cleansing is a euphemism. It is euphemistic because the term cleansing implies something good. Murdering of women and children, or the act of genocide does not sound like a righteous act of cleansing.
