I completely agree with you, I was only quoting this article that I had read, I was not expressing my personal opinion
How is Spain not white?
Sorry I didn’t read your summary. Yes I’m getting real fed up with this egregiously racist “only white people and white countries are evil” bullshit.
Spain isn’t exactly white. Western European but not English white. But it’s that empire was purposely omitted to focus on very white people only. So sick of it.
haha no problem, I also find it very boring, especially since these are the three countries which have given minorities the possibility of being able to live in peace in society
Good lord bro. How much of piece of shit do you have to be to do colonialism and imperialism apologetics? I bet you tell black Americans they should be thankful for slavery as well.
@TerminallyChill very well thought out and factual response there. So intelligent.
Can't be any less intelligent than saying you should be thankful that people pillaging your natural resources and humanity for centuries gave you electricity as a tangential result.
How rare it is to find a person without an agenda and just tells history like it is such as yourself. The amount of revision in this question would be disheartening if I actually expected anything from humanity.
Yes, on the other hand you can also make the argument that all this is part of the past and those who are alive now aren't responsible for it. Yes we do have to live with the consequences resulting from the actions done in the past, but you can't walk up to a portugese guy and make him responsible for Christoph Columbus discovering america which lead to the genocide on the aztec and mayan people by Cortez.Even the Holocaust which is fairly recent, is already a thing of the past and no german alive today had anything to do with it (maybe one or two survivors are left.)Remember history so it doesn't repeat itself, but look forward in the future and deal with that problems.
That's a very reductionist view of the situation. The behaviors, ideologies, culture and apparatuses of oppression people perpetuated in the past still have vestiges in and effect the present. That Portuguese guy might not have colonialized anyone but the white supremacy mindset that global European colonialism has indoctrinated the world with plays into his thought processes, decisons, business practices etc... Because make no mistake the neocolonialism of Africa, South America exists to this day and has never stopped. The only reason the Western World has the quality of life it has is because it has been doing regime change, proxy wars, extrajudicial assassinations, coups and deposings across the entire non-white world to exploit their mineral wealth, land, natural and geopolitical resources for the last 600 years.I'm sorry to say but History is directly responsible for and has to be rectified for the present and future, there is no blank slate or carte blanche, like how white Americans pretend the legacy of last 500 years of denying black people jobs, housing, humanity, education, literacy, an honest living, doing secret scientific and chemical experiments are going to go away overnight and that there's any even close to resembling an equal footing in society, that's a denial of basic logic. This is Historicism 101. History is present.
Oh yea, also responsible for hundreds of coups and deposings of democratically elected leaders across the entire world.
but all of those things were good, the past 75 years since the CIA began doing its work have been the most peaceful in all of human historyyou're just mad that the communists (who did the same thing) lost
@007kingifrit Yeah that's clear trolling. I'm going to have to block you if you reply to me with nonsense.
everything i just said is true, you can't respond because it defeats your communist worldviewthe past 75 years have been the most peaceful in all of human history, a peace established by the American global order of bretton woods
@007kingifrit This you? static.wikia.nocookie.net/.../Troll-face.jpg
Prager U? Lol, you might as well have memes to make your argument.
@TerminallyChill <------ take note everyone; the leftist cannot argue points, only labels. it doesn't matter what pragerU's argument is because he is programmed with an "us vs them" mentallity. this is also a side effect of the left's optimism roots as optimism withers against arguments and thus the leftist is hard coded not to argue, but to accusethank you @TerminallyChill for being our monkey today, anytime you want to make a fool of yourself with bad arguments i will be happy to respond to, analyze, and chastise your comments
It's very illuminating of the Asker's agenda that they upvote every opinion that is the same as their agenda but down votes all the ones oppositional to it.
In terms of history, USA hasn't been around long enough to even be considered the most criminal, though you must account for the fact that things we consider criminal now, were not always criminal. And things you might deem criminal are in fact not.
For me none of these countries are criminals, Yes slavery is a horrible thing, yes colonization is a bad thing and I think interventions in the Middle East are mostly mistakes. But if we look closely at history, all peoples practiced slavery, conquest, etc. Or we have to consider mankind as Criminal
@Tyrael The CIA has been around for a blink of an eye and has done more harm than intelligence agencies that have been around way longer. Do you know how many hundreds of coups of democratically elected leaders the USA has done in the name of exploiting developing regions geopolitical and natural resources. You seem very ignorant
@TerminallyChill sure, that still barely stacks up sorry to say. You seem very ignorant if you aren't aware of what other countries have been up to in history.
Nah. I'd say you are, the only reason I said what I did is because of extensive research into colonialism, neocolonialism and western geopolitical intervention. You really have no idea how much shit lays at the feet of American alphabet agencies and it shows.
Right pal, it's just the rest of the world you're ignorant of then.
Not at all. You're just triggered and feel attacked becausr you're white. History and facts aren't racist. Every race had committed atrocity but it's clear to anyone with a google search function who has wreaked and continues to wreak the most havoc worldwide.
What's my race got to do with anything? You're the one bringing race into it, that's clearly your thing not mine.
🎵What's raaaace got to do, go to do with it baby🎵
