In the USA, many people blame us whites for great historical atrocities. That is largely true. However, why do they often overlook facts like the following?
-Whites owned white slaves, blacks owned black slaves, and blacks owned white slaves.
-At times, Native American Tribes A do atrocities to to Tribe B and took Tribe B's land.
-Some areas of land the US government legally purchased from various tribes.
-There is the idea that White Americans destroyed Native American tribes/other minorities & made them seem more "white". While there are times they forced the tribes to do this, sometimes maybe tribal members did this voluntarily.

There are many other things like the above often overlooked. I do recognized these atrocities are horrible. However, it's better to try to learn from the sins of our ancestors than to keep holding on a grudge.


Also, since racism means that one race feels superior to another, it is possible for a Native American tribe to be racist against whites. However, while that is also wrong, minorities being racist against whites can have more justification since whites have long oppressed them.

Well, why should people in the present be hold accountable for what they did or have done, even if they aren't even from that "branch" of people?
Also any race have done good and bad stuff... should we target everyone because of it?...

Same that things have happend for both, only in areas the build up of hatred against a groupe (some where native americans or slaves being black or rather a "unknown"/rare sight of skin color)
While at the times the white people was holding more power and tech to be used with systems/laws and so on.

But anyway that does NOT mean that everyone hated them, and that some could live with each others before racial laws was structured and used with groupes like KKK came around.
Not to say there wasn't anything like a black verison of KKK, but mostly not like KKK and maybe quite "mild" in comparison as KKK hurted even white fellows... so overall nothing was great about KKK.

In China everyone was slave to emperor, now they are slaves to the communists. In India they STILL have a caste system and people are abandoned as trash. In the middle east women are still possessions that are traded like a commodity. In Africa they STILL have a slave trade and rampant sex market.

At least Europe stopped being stupid and improved themselves. Everyone else seems content living back in the dark ages blaming the Europeans for everything.


Besides Africa had a rampant slave trade that didn't end till they were invaded by Europe.

The Barbary slave trade refers to the slave markets that flourished on the Barbary Coast of North Africa, or modern-day Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and western Libya, between the 15th and 19th centuries. These markets prospered while the states were nominally under Ottoman suzerainty, but in reality they were mostly autonomous. The North African slave markets traded in European slaves.

The European slaves were acquired by Barbary pirates in slave raids on ships and by raids on coastal towns from Italy to Spain, Portugal, France, England, the Netherlands, and as far afield as Ireland and Iceland. Men, women, and children were captured, to such a devastating extent that vast numbers of coastal towns were abandoned[citation needed].

For centuries, large vessels on the Mediterranean relied on European galley slaves supplied by North African and Ottoman slave traders.

Frankly, I think there's an easy answer to this. Those of others races that hate on white people (for being white) are just as wrong as white people who hate on people of other races (for being whichever race they are). It's simply a hate/blame game with no winners. Unfortunately, we have too many in all races willing to play this "disgusting" game, which is why it never stops. It was this hate that brought Hitler to power. This hate that's caused many riots and assassinations over the years. Once those dumb enough to fall into the trap smarten up maybe things will get better but after quite a few centuries of it I'm not holding my breath waiting for any real change.

I blame education. Many seem unaware that there were white slaves, many seem unaware that (as mentioned) blacks had black slaves and that blacks sold their own people into slavery, many seem unaware that Muslim Arabs had black slaves and for some reason blacks dont seem to want justice from the Arabs for this, they only want answers from or blame the whites?, Only a small percenatge of whites had black slaves, mostly wealthier people, Arabs had slaves for longer than Christians/whites and in some cases treated them far worse, whites ended slavery, etc.
The Christian crusades also, whilst it is undeniable that Christianity was spread and there was murder and conquest, many dont seem to realise that the crusades were also part of taking Europe back from Muslim invaders.

For some reason its perfectly ok for blacks or Asians or whatever to be proud and have black power or Asian nations to have no immigration or Black or Asian only clubs/bars etc but all of these things are only ok if you're not white.

The word racisim is used losely and inaccurately. A true racist is rare and you're only racist if you're white..

It seems that many will never move on from the past. And that the whites of today will forever be blamed for the past and that white will always have the reputation of being privileged and racist and white guilt will probably always exist. Well maybe not eventually when whites will by far be the minority, most likely.
The combination of white guilt, do gooders, political correctness and the other races that will forever hate and blame the white man for everything probably will mean that this will never change.

You could have never ending debate as to whether or not whites made the world better or not and if they were superior or not.
Of course they were superior compared to blacks and the Indians as far as techological advancement.
And if they were truely evil they probably could/would have wiped people out?

EDIT: Oh and people act as if whites just rolled into Africa and took all the people by force when infact they were often sold to them, not taken by force.

At least we know who reported your post since he has to cry about it.

I don't think you understand what racism means if you think minority groups can be racist against a majority group.

Do you not realize this is akin to saying homosexuals can be heterophobic against straight people?


RACISM IS RACISM.

If you hate someone just because of what race or color they are, that's racism. Blacks can be just as racist as whites can.
