Although Griffith was thought by many to be a bigot and racist, he detested the manner in which whites and the "white man's government" treated and oppressed Native Americans. This was a theme that he explored in several of his early short films, most notably in The Red Man's View
(1909) and Ramona
(1910), which are very strong denouncements of the oppression of Native Americans by whites.
His films depict the cruelty of humankind.
