Ever wonder what pre-colonial African society was like? Wonder no more.
Africans under colonialism fared objectively much better. They had more more to eat, better order, and the whites killed enough Zulus to keep them in line.
which the latter is now known as the failed state of Zimbabwe.
If people of different ethnicity are equal in intellectual capacity, but widespread social inequalities endure, it must be the case that whites have some deviate, structural and hidden ways to ensure their superior wealth. In this context, it makes sense that they should donate most of what they have as a way to right a wrong and atone for their past crimes. Any attempt for them to resist this is tantamount to white nationalism. It can only be justified by the deliberate racism and willingness to oppress people of color, and, yes, at some point in the future it may justify a slaughter.
The Zulu caste controlled its own population with a rigid code. The chief decided who would marry and when. If you pleased the chief with your exploits as a warrior, you would be allowed to take one or more wives. If not, you were prohibited from impregnating any woman on pain of death for you both!
And once their own white compatriots have been slaughtered they will rely on outside whites to constantly bail them out of various shitty situation they find themselves in. Case in point - Haiti.
See any worthy anarcho-primitivism critique of why human genetics or racial differences are bogus with regards to cultural dominance of a race.
The entire continent would have been better if Europeans never set a foot on the soil.
The world is full of crazy wack jobs. We need to change our laws to prevent them from spreading their filth
I'm all for a Global "Put that thing back where you found it" day.
Ever wonder what pre-colonial African society was like? Wonder no more. The tribes were split into a two part caste system. Zulus
... were going nowhere as far as civilization is concerned and hadn’t in millennia.
The worst that could happen in the US would be for the Democrats to become THE party representing people of color, and the republicans representing whites only.
Alien invaders, essentially, robbed them of ever being able to rise to anything else, and still do to this day. The only defense of that is (shrug), it's tribal human nature.
Liberal logic as usual. Arabs invaded and occupied Spain for four centuries. Then theyw ere kicked out and Spain colonized alrge swaths of the world. A small country like Portugal colonied amny parts of the world.
India and China were huge powers for long, they fell and now are rising again.
teaches you nothing is every your fault.
Japan was bombed
When your culture is made to fail by external oppression, it takes a little bit of time to "get back on your feet" once that oppression is removed. The longer the oppression lasted, and the more brutal it was, the harder it is to recover.I'd argue today that most African nations still have quite a ways to go in both removal of foreign interest, and their timelines of 'development' essentially being reset.
Why did the US and allies put reconstruction of Germany and Japan as a primary goal post WWII? Why didn't we treat them like Germany post WWI?What did we do to rebuild them? And how is their WWII occupation and reconstruction different from the dawn of post-colonial African nations from the 40s to 60s?If you can answer those questions, you can understand how asinine it is to compare Japan's post WWII state, with African post colonial states.
Europeans are not some gift to humanity or the world. We got lucky.
Have you even been to any big African city like Nairobi or Durban or Cape Town or Cairo??

Something that always gets totally ignored. A fortunate combination of domesticable crops, domesticable animals, temperate climate, vast mineral resources, fertile land, and deciduous forests. that didn't exist anywhere except Europe until the discovery of America
And America was already inhabited! Millions of American Indians lived here and had their own civilization. They didn’t progress despite having ridiculous amounts of resources. Once again, you are wrong. CULTURE is the reason! It’s always the reason!
European culture is 35,000 years old.
bob2356 saysEuropean culture is 35,000 years old. Don’t confuse race with culture. The fact that you made this statement means you have no idea what culture even is.
Want to tell me what culture is and why everyone except you calls it pre historic cultures then?

Culture is the set of traditions and values a society uses to shape the preferred actions of its citizens.
Clearly, the resultant European cultures had little to nothing to do with “ancient cultures from 35,000 years ago.
Rhymes with White Eyes taking Native Americans' land.
