In response to Ben Franklins "Remarks concerning the savages of North America"

Dear Mr. Franklin,
After reading your Remarks, I have come to the conclusion that you set a fairly bias tone and I would have liked to have known you in order to understand a little bit more about your culture. It's always very easy to criticize and to point fingers, however in order to fully comprehend why a culture works like it does, you need to be a part of it or at least live within it for a length of time. Unfortunately in this new world everybody seems to make judgements that they perceive to be right according to their own civilization, but some tribal civilizations have a much better structure than you may think, but I feel that you haven't given yourself the opportunity to understand this.
Best regards
