Again this relates to Charles Darwin's investigation on evolution. European or more vulnerable the the disease because they have a different gene or DNA. Also sickle cell anaemia is not part of European's natural habitat which makes them even more vulnerable. It pretty much relates to when indians from the (sorry i dont know the exact date but I bet between the 1400s) were very vulnerable of smallpox because it wasnt part of their habitat or accoustomed part of their lives.
