Congratulations! It’s a bitch!
How about a joke that doesn't put down white people for a change
@TomPholio, i guess it finally started snowing on funny pics.
@TomPholio, because that would be racist
Cultural appropriation is a blanket term used by idiots who refuse to learn world history...
White ppl started rap and dreads change my mind
People say white people have no culture but thats because theyre so mired in it that they dont recognize it. Theres so much of it that we just catagorize it as things other than white culture in order simplify things. Halloween, texas gun culture, rednecks, british culture, french culture, cowboys, theres just so much.
@BlazingBowman, the main thing I think of in white culture is “heart attack grill” and the meme of the guy riding a garbage bin. Oh and also add in the pet that is treated better than humans
@Implicit88, dats also white culture or American culture..... the concept of culture is really nebulous i guess.
Everything considered modern culture is white culture. Without whites colonizing lands and providing a safe land of comparable freedom the rest of the world would still be living in grass huts and chasing wild animals for food.
Sure, some were better than others but by and large whites, and more specifically Scots and English, are the reason you’re reading this on the electricity powered internet right now.
And yes, unapologetically, everything done to get us here was worth it. You’re welcome.
@Gothem, I'm pretty sure China was doing ok on their own plus didn't they introduce the English to gunpowder?
@Gothem, several cultures have evolved independently without whites people (China and Latin America come to mind). But where on earth did you get the idea that white people provided “safe land of freedom”? Other cultures were fine on their own, and if anything the “safety” was safety from colonists becoming more aggressive for land and resources. The way you worded your comment is highly ethnocentric and dehumanizing towards any race that isn’t white. Please take a look at other cultures and their accomplishments before claiming that white culture is superior
@Gothem, careful now, you might wake up the cave trolls and we don't them reeeeeing over this.
@AussiePatrick, i mean china had their good moments and bad moments. They were in a bad moment during world war 2 when japan and russia were tag teaming their bootyhole.
@Silver6456, yeah im sure incans were having a blast getting their hearts ripped out.
@BlazingBowman, I'm referring mainly to the part where OP said "the rest of the world would still be living in grass huts"
@Gothem, At the end of the day "whites colonizing lands" has given us our modern conveniences and freedoms, we should also remember and honor the fact that it was also built on the backs of slaves and the blood of the native populations.
@AussiePatrick, yeah well thats objectivly false.
@Gothem, i wonder if you would feel the same way if someone pillaged your house and killed everyone you love and then put you in slave labor.
@Silver6456, china was largely influenced by western culture. Not America but Britain for sure. Ever heard of opium? That was a whole ordeal. But I do agree the idea of spreading freedom is bs.
@BlazingBowman, I'm sure they were even happier being raped by Spanish Catholics and white British in the north as well as being forced off their land and were one of the first cases of biological warfare. (Native Americans not just incans). Also basically victims of genocide because they disagreed. Sacrifices are also overplayed in media they were actually relatively rarem
@AussiePatrick, since western colonization it's been a fact that the white you are the better. Japanese higher class literally praise white skin more so do most Asian, African, and Latin cultures. It's not 100% that white Europeans were the influence but it is likely.
@Cousteau, same old same old to them. Atleast the spanish catholics werent ripping out their hearts. And they brought cool new technology that made their lives easier. And for the average incan their lives got better.
@Cousteau, also the blood sacrifices were litterally daily. They believed it made the sun rise
@BlazingBowman, lol no they weren't. Incan sacrifices were spread out and usually were only Male children. I hate to say it but you fell into my trap I baited you to respond to that and you came back with utter nonsense. Unless you come up with a .Gov or .edu source dont make those kinda claims.
@Cousteau, didnt pay much attention in middle school i guess. Lol i love it when people who have just the barest knowledge of history try to make white people seem uniquely evil. Smh.
@BlazingBowman, the Spanish Catholics proceeded to rape and kill most of them. Even if you include you inaccurate sacrifices I think I'd still prefer to take my chances there than literally being exterminated brutally I might add thanks to their beliefs. Colonization is not peaceful it basically results in genocide.
@BlazingBowman, lol I also dont think white people are uniquely evil that's dumb. When did I say that?
@Cousteau, im sorry how did the conquistadors defeat the incan empire with only 300 of them... oh right they alligned themselves with neigboring tribes that the incans had been raping, murdering, enslaving and sacrificing for a hundred odd years. But go on and tell me how the spanish catholics totally killed them all like thats historically accurate because incase you didnt notice. Mexicans, and people of that area have alot of native american blood running in them.
@BlazingBowman, I do understand that white Europeans had a far greater rate of expansion due to resources that led them to have a strategic advantage in technology over others and as human nature exploration became exploitation. Every culture does it but your wrong to think in incans wouldn't have happier mostly because you keep making false statementa.
@BlazingBowman, I guess I just decided to pay attention in school unlike you huh? I think I have a decent historical knowledge as I've been forced to due to my college education and my major in economics as well as my soon to be masters. We study history a lot. Maybe shake your head at yourself and learn humility when wrong?
@BlazingBowman, have you even been to the slums in Mexico they are literally only dark skinned. A total of 1.8 million Spanish came to south America and a further 3.5 came after the colonization era. Where are you getting your 300? South america isnt sparta lol
@Cousteau, yet here you are trying to make the argument to me that the spanish catholics were somehow worse than the people they conquered.... for doing the exact same sh!t the were doing minus the human sacrifice. Hate to break it to you "history buff: pfft. But once a group of people were conqured they normally werent treated that great. I know mind blowing right. Who couldve guessed that the spanish conquistadors did the same thing that almost every other civilization did after the conquered a place. Killed or enslaved the men then raped the women. Nuts right.
@BlazingBowman, Spanish Catholics, white Christian's, and muslims all have tried to kill or wipe out opposing views. Religion often times creates genocide historically.
@Cousteau, lol you think 1.8 million came on cortezs ship. And youre telling me you studied history. Your understanding of history is laughable. Get a refund on your degree man because its garbage.
@Cousteau, whats your point. Thats was standard practice. But the religious aspect wasnt the sole point. It was to make sure those who were left would fall in line and be controlled.
@BlazingBowman, you think there was one ship? the colonization era was at least 200 years. that's laughable go read any book related to 15th century history and you will know the Spanish were feared for their naval might far before the British or I guess you think they only travel one at a time. Hey you know how many soldiers died in ww2 well it all happened at once all together no one died before or after that one time. Lol you're real dumb huh?
@BlazingBowman, my whole point is that white people definitely influenced most of the worlds culture and to say otherwise is kind ignorant.
@Cousteau, never said there was one ship retard. But your desperate and grabbing for anything i understand that. Its okay to lose. I know it was pretty stupid to think the incan society was somehow a model society but thats okay. Its okay to be retarded.
@Cousteau, i never said they didnt.
@BlazingBowman, you literally said that I think 1.8 million came with Cortez you. You do realize the Spanish colonized south America for more than 200 years right? Like that's a lot of time and ships that weren't related to Cortez and thats just the first 1.8 million which was about the entire population of south America at the time. You should get some hot sauce so you can eat your own words with a better flavor. Also dont call names I haven't but it really shows who is winning I guess.
@BlazingBowman, you didnt ever say they weren't but you also made some very false claims. Like I said before sacrifices weren't a daily thing it was much more rare and many cultures that were exterminated never did human sacrifices so yes they probably were happier before and would've developed differently.
@Cousteau, litterally thats what you said. I was talking about cortez when he first came in contact with the incans and conquered them with 300 conquistadors. By buffing up his army with the thousands of pissed of slaves, and oppressed nearby tribes in the area. The point was that they sided with the conquistadors over the jackasses were, killing, rapping, enslaving and sacrificing them for the last 100 odd years.
@Cousteau, oh wait that was the aztecs that sacrificed them daily. always mix those two up. Meh whats the difference between them really just another extremely authoritarians hyper religious state that killed, raped, sacrificed everyone around them.
I choose to identify as African American.
