Or I could be a smug Scandinavian hammering down vodka and counting my money, money most Americans can never afford to dream of. Yet Americans think "socialism" will lead to world poverty.

My ancestors were noble and honorable people. Your ancestors probably look down at you in disgust for your weakness and guilt ridden miserable little existence. Europeans did not do anything that any other group of people either did or wanted to do. War, conquest, and slavery were practiced in every culture, even your beloved Amerindians. What Europeans did to the Indians and Africans were exactly what Indians and Africans would have done to Europeans had they been able to. Do you seriously believe the Indians wouldn't have wiped out the Europeans had they been able to?

The European races weren't created on top, they climbed there. From the miserable and cold steppes of the Caucasus they spread out and built tribes and cultures that eventually turned into Western Civilization. You wouldn't be sitting here crying your tears and disrespecting your heritage if not for the talent, ingenuity, courage, and will of your ancestors and their European kinsmen. You are only able to sit here because a small group of colonists fought and beat one of the greatest empires in the world and manifested destiny all the way to the Pacific. The rest of the world has benefited immensely from Western Civilization and the ideas, technology, medicine, art, literature, and innovation that has sprung from it.

YOUR ancestors clearly were, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Feel free to leave to any country that will have you.

Lol....good luck making white guilt a common theme with people its not a problem with yet....white guilt is a mental disease IMO....as a favorite ww2 hero of mine said

"If I had but one bullet and were faced by both an enemy and a traitor, I would let the traitor have it."

Not threatening anyone its just my opinion on the entire white feeling guilty for something they had no hand in nor could change! Its idiotic.

I don't "hate" anyone. As a very open-minded person, I simply wish Americans wouldn't romanticize about the Founding Fathers and Constitution. And there would have been HELL to pay if I were a Native American the day the European warships started bringing large numbers of people to my land. Or if I were there when the first slave ship came, I would lead a band of my fellow men to raid the ship, kill all the whites on board, and welcome the slaves to my land. And I would burn the ship down.

As for the hype about "Western civilization" and its unique greatness, the idea that only white Europeans were smart enough to create it is horsesh!t. Japan is what I consider to be the greatest nation on Earth, and its very smart people have the same DNA as Native Americans. What the Japanese did to Americans (and Chinese for that matter) a generation ago is regrettable but was motivated by very deep spiritual convictions that I think overall were a force for justice, not evil. Hong Kong, Taiwan, and South Korea owe a lot of their good fortune to Japan, who has defended all three from Chinese aggression throughout the centuries (but I will admit many Korean women were raped by Japanese forces), though unfortunately China once again owns the once-British colony Hong Kong. Civil unrest lately has made me think either Japan or Russia will help Hong Kong fight China for independence eventually though.
