The Europeans were invaders and took ancestral lands of the Native Americans. They also brought disease, discrimination, foreign plants, animals, and insects. The European honey bee did more damage to the natural environment that it was environmental terrorism. Imagine you are sitting in your backyard and an alien spaceship lands. They get out and bring strange plants and animals with them and in a few weeks you are dying of a disease. They take your land, and discriminate against you because you aren't green like they are. Just think about how you would feel.
