comment Why weren't North American Indians enslaved?
We should probably discuss on meta the advisability of "Why weren't..." "why didn't..." questions. They are technically counterfactuals, but I think they are legitimate history questions. This is not a criticism of this question, just a request for a meta-discussion to obtain clarity.

comment How did Helen Keller learn to distinguishing between colors?
Unless there is evidence that Ms. Keller learned to recognize colors, then this question is spurious. I'm also not sure this is a question where historical methods are helpful; it may not be in scope for this forum.
