Rathist. You’re Rathist coz, like, you said the idiots were idiots and we can’t point out idiots if they happen to have the IQ of George Bush after a lobotomy. Also, I’m terrified. Does the internet tough guy act get your two inches all tingly or is it just me who’s really turned on by an aggressively PC cunt trying to sound cool?

The crimes, the genocide, the slavery, the whatever, are in the past. Genocide and slavery aren’t exclusive to white people, they are things human beings do. The fact that white people did it to black/whatever people has nothing to do with the color of the white people’s skin, but more to do with access to resources that allowed for technological advancement and an incredibly warped sense of superiority. I doubt many persons in 1500 placed much trust in those they determined to be “other”, for whatever reason. Whether or not it was based on the color of their skin, or the fact that they were simply in a different location or spoke a different language (Japan and China’s historic antipathy for example). Again, though, this occurred hundreds of years ago, I didn’t do it, and I refuse to feel any sense of guilt for things dead white people did any more than I feel responsible for the crimes of Hitler on Jews. You just need to realize that life’s not fair, for everyone, for a multitude of reasons, most of which we have about as much control over as the color of our skin. The rudeness isn’t “breaking down white privilege” or creating an environment for people of colour or whatever, it’s just being an asshole. Other than having lots of babies, there’s nothing you can do about a majority exerting an influence, and as for them “invading your space” what are you, five? It would seem you’d want white people to see a list of reasons they suck, otherwise it’s just an angry black circle-jerk. So maybe grow up and stop walking around with a chip on your shoulder blaming your problems on things you’ve decided exist Racism does exist, though, and it sucks, but taking your anger at it out on all white people, claiming that they have some imaginary “privilege” and getting all bent out of shape about it has about a snowball’s chance in hell in affecting any change or making your life any better.
