White people have a habit of invading other peoples' country then justifying it. What's worse is that they discriminate people that were already there and try to kick out people who goes there too. amirite?

I'm trying to kick the habit, maybe I should start chewing gum or something.

Apparently, non white people have a habit of complaining about things in the distant past to people in the present and sounding like complete retards in the process.

well, i am a white person, and i have invaded many people's countries. personally. i apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

You know, I told myself I would kick this habit, but just the other day I caved and invaded the Congo. I'd feel bad, but, hey, I'm white. It's in my DNA...or something like that.

Hardly, you could say that with almost every civilization.

I'm truly sorry!
Let me just phone up the people that I have no genetic relation to from 300+ years ago and give back their land.
I can do that, y'know. That's how I got my own chapter in a history book.

Well I just lost my faith in humanity. Thanks guys I try to keep mutual respect with people of different ethnic background and you turn around and give a blanket racist statement about my ethnic background with a statement that is both flawed and out of my control. This really shows how reverse-racism has played out but don't listen to me cause Obviously I'm the asshole here

This has happened in many cultures, all over the world for a very long time, I suppose that Europeans just did it on a larger scale.

Give me a break. Ever heard of the Native Americans? They conquedered and killed each other left and right. Same with African tribes, even now in some places. They storm in and kill people and take over the tribe. But the Natives and Africans did it even more brutally then the Europeans did. They scalped people, rapped the girls, etc. Yeah, white people conquered other places, but so did every one eles. I wonder why the school system only teaches us about the Europeans? Just curious, I honestly dont know.....

"the native americans conquered and killed each other left and right?" they may have gotten into squabbles, but native americans believed that the land belonged to EVERYONE; that it was meant to be shared, not owned. the europeans came over, forcibly took the land and pushed native americans further and further west, killing the ones who wouldn't. their reason? simple because the native americans weren't "civilized". because they were "savages." that was their justification for all the wrong doings they committed

ps- i agree 100% with this post

I'm pretty sure you would call some one "uncivilized" if they consistently stole shit form your camp and even killed some of the villagers for reasons unknown, the whole situation just escalated to that point. Every single civilization has attempted to conquer another civilization at some point Europeans just came out on top and some others are sore losers, who knew?

are you kidding me? how ignorant could you be? we are the people who stole from them! when jamestown was founded, the first winter for the white settlers was so bad that they resorted to stealing from the native americans. so in reality, the native americans didn't steal from the whites; the whites stole from them. go read a history book before commenting on something you have no knowledge of

Lol I can't believe two of you actually are stupid enough to challenge me with this. Of course we stole from them but they did as well, they did first for the record. They started building walls to prevent the Natives from getting into their town and stealing their food. The people in the town later began to starve because they could not grow crops inside of the Jamestown (triangle) fort that they made to keep the Indians out. please do some research and as well as common sense when trying to debate I mean honestly you do you think we actually hurt the Native Americans that bad just because we thought they were uncivilized? tensions between the Natives and the settlers were always bad when they first met and really neither were willing to cooperate, so they killed each other but the settlers had better weaponry and therefore won.

: To reply to HappyGurl.Ever herd of scalping? the native americans did this to other tribes. THEY CUT OF THE SCALPS OF LIVE VICTIMS AND HUNG THEM ON POLES AS TROPHIES. google it. Secondly, have you read the book Nia Nukie? ITs about a young girls who was in the same tribe as Sacagawea. She along with others where taken prisoner by an enemy tribe. The ememy tribe killed the woman and burned the village to the ground. The young girls where forced to march miles with no water, among other forms of tourture. This is a true story recorded by a companion of Lewis and Clarke. You have obviously been told the government/school version of Native American history. Use your brain.

Okay first of all yeah, we werent so nice the Native Americans, but they really wherent nice to us either. No makes a really good point, they had to build all those things (ie, walls facing out ward, the actualt fort) when they first got there because Native Americans began attackign right away, this was before the dettlers stole food and such. Duh. I think your the uneducated one,

To be honest, it's hard to believe that you're educated when you can't spell or write properly. And their hostilities were nothing compared to what the European settlers did to them.

You realize everyone can tell that attacking someone's grammar is a form of a last resort to prove your point right? Please tell me what the Europeans did to the Native Americans that could possible be worse than being taken a prisoner of war, watching one of your friends go up to a pyramid and have his heart ripped out of his chest and being eaten all while being boiled alive. Tell me whats worse then realizing your next on that ceremony. By the way that was the Aztecs that did that and i'll ask again, tell me what could the Europeans do that could possibly be worse than that?

I was pointing it out because she thinks she's all high and mighty. And stop being sassypieann's bitch. She can speak up for herself. Now that that menial stuff is out of the way, what's your point? It was a ritual execution. Whoop de doo. The Europeans gave Native Americans "gifts" of blankets covered in small pox. So to please your want for images, pretty much every single person who uses that blanket will get small pox. This would cause painful pustules on the body and would permanently scar. Small pox also killed lots of people. I find it humorous that you think Europeans were completely civilized, never tortured prisoners, and never did anything to terrorize the Native Americans.

Lol I make one reply defending her and suddenly I'm her bitch? It's called being nice, something you seem to lack. You treat the execution like its nothing but I've never heard of something more cruel than that. When did I ever say I think the Europeans were completely civilized, I don't actually so stop making assumptions and treating it like its a fact you have been doing it this entire time and all its accomplished is making an ass of yourself. If you really want to say that the ceremony was nothing then I can also claim that what the Europeans did was nothing as well. It became a war and neither side was right but Europeans won purely because of superior firepower something some Native leaders tried to tell the other tribes so they could have peace but they refused to listen.

This argument is not going anywhere because you keep nitpicking about how you suck and can't make a decent comeback and can't make a legitimate point. In case you didn't know, Native Americans tried to make peace with the Europeans. Then the Europeans broke the treaties and took over more land.

I'm going to have to start quoting you to see if you can tell when you sound absolutely stupid. I have to ask how old are you? Your attitude makes you sound like your fucking 8. Your most recent argument has been the only point you have had so far that even has ground to it and even then its flawed. Everything else from there on in was pretty much typical bullshit to be put lightly. but in all seriousness how old are you actually? I have to know.

That doesn't matter, at all. I'm not out of arguments, I stated why your incorrect about 4 posts ago if you actually read it. If you don't want to read it I'll recapitulate. So what if they broke a peace treaty, its called war, whoop de doo. Lets say hypothetically I am what you say I am I would have to say 13-18 but that beats 3-10.

So you're justifying the European takeover of North America? And I'm pretty sure you would attack aliens that showed up on our planet, because that's what the whites were to the Native Americans. And how does initial hostility by the Native Americans justify the Europeans taking over ALL of North America? So yeah, I just played the education card.

I don't know about you but I would love it if aliens randomly showed up on earth one day. I can remember since I was a toddler that the thought of us expecting to defend ourselves from aliens is stupid and I would think it would be awesome to be given the opportunity to examine technology that is light years away from man and to have them be able to explain some of the universes secrets and who they are (how it was made, what exactly are black holes, if they ever experienced religion, etc). Btw to further disprove your statement the natives thought they were gods (I think it was a sun god if i can remember) and thought the gods were back for revenge. Of course initial hostility can justify Europeans fighting back, wouldn't you get a little pissed if some random dude showed up and started attacking your village. They actually initially gave them the benefit of the doubt and just put up walls but that eventually screws them.

This is a fallacy.

Hasty generalization.

It seems strange to me that only white people can be 'racist'. Other ethnicities can do what every they want it in America and elsewhere but as soon as it's a white person, every other ethnicity freaks and points fingers. I think we all need to get over ourselves and stop being so hypocritical.

Is'nt is kinda common sense though thats it's evil to kill babies (China: the 'one child rule'), stone woman to death (Every Muslim country), Kill those with ideas (Egypt: check the news).

Also, bunches of people (kinda including you :) ) are mad at us when we help people (i.e. the Iraqu war) But you would also be mad at us if we did nothing and left the world to itself. And yeah, I have heard of the U.N. but honestly, we really ARE the U.N. no other country is big enough or ecinomicly stable enough to help.
