I'm not going to argue about whether it was or wasn't a genocide. The fact is that the article has a whole section of scholars debating that point, and as such, it deserves to be in a category related to genocide. - Themightyquill (talk) 14:34, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
Ok, but we will be applying this policy to ALL organized, attempts that eliminate 800+ or 3-5,000 based on racial and national basis? I have had to have this debate in other articles when simply applying, peer reviewed academically respected multiple sources. With 3-5,000 people killed in 1804, in the course of two months eliminating the entire ethnic and national group of French creoles. Revenge doesn't de-genocide a legal framework. It is a charged word and personally the Jamestown massacre COULD be discussed as "genocide", however genocide requires specific intent, targeting of substantial parts...essentially theoretical intent, while we have other articles, that clearly demonstrate a crime of genocide in whole...by ANY standards related. This precedent SHOULD be reenforced. I am a genocide prevention activist, and try to decipher the gravity of genocide with modern times. I suggest the term "genocide" be avoided until the creation of the United States, (as the "Trail of Tears", and the Jamestown massacre of indians are clearly within the realm of the concept but not the legal framework.

I don't find your arguments persuasive, or even on topic. As far as I can tell, you have not even attempted to address the points raised by Themightyquill. This is not a discussion of the Jamestown massacre, it is not a discussion of any other article or topic. Dlabtot (talk) 04:41, 21 July 2017 (UTC)
