“On the topic of white supremacy...”

If “white people” lived in Africa and “black people” lived in Europe, would the accomplishments of Europe be any less or those of Africa be any greater?

Since ancient Greece, Europe has been on par, if not generally ahead of those areas. In the last 300-400 years is when Europe so thoroughly eclipsed those areas, it hasn't even been close.

If we trace the timeline of civilization from founding of the city state of Ur in Iraq in the year 3800 BC to today, Europe was at the epicenter of civilization for roughly 6% of civilized history. Hard to make the claim that "Whites" are genetically smarter then non-whites when non-whites were more advanced for 94% of all of civilized history.
What's the point? It's like tracing the timeline of a genius inventor and wondering why he wasn't always #1 in his class or the best at his job. It's pointless. Matter is outcome. Europeans have won the race. We colonized the planet, invented the most destructive weaponry known to mankind, put a man on the moon, etc etc. Belittle Europeans in some vain quest to make yourself feel better, but there is a reason we're always wringing our hands over White Supremacy and not Black Supremacy or Asian Supremacy.

Nowitzki (who I'm aware has a half African wife) is I believe #5 all time in NBA svoring, and of course has a Ring.

Laetner. might be the greatest college player of all time (granted many greats don't stay 4 years like him).

You get the point though.

Except in the case between medieval Cairo and London, it was reversed. London was the dump and Cairo was the wealthy prosperous city. Ever wondered why the crusaders when they arrived in the Middle East didn't want to leave? Because it was a way nicer place then Europe was back then.

Look where Alexander decided to go when he wanted to conquer the civilized world. Notice he didn't go north or westward.



Here is a map of the wealthiest regions of the Roman Empire. Notice where they all are. It was the Eastern regions that were prosperous that kept the empire afloat. We know from the writings that outside of Italy the European provences were a net drain on the empire. Without Egypt, North Africa, Asia and the Levant, Rome would have never had an empire.



Then there was the dark ages when Europe was hell hole of war and backwardness that lasted for 500 years. During this period of time China, India and the Middle East were all extremely prosperous.

You can't win an endless race. Babylon was the most important city in the world for almost a thousand years. I'm sure the people there then thought to themselves the same thing you do now. We won the race, we are the greatest. Nobody stays on top forever.

All of the key scientists that helped develop atomic energy were Jewish btw.

Also the race to put the man on the moon involved around half a million people from all over America. How can this been seen as a "white" achievement when lots of non-white people worked on the project?

That is neither true nor relevant. Jews are Europeans (from Eastern European). And have been in Europe for thousands of years. Also, many key scientists were not Jewish like Fermi, Bethe, Lawrence, Fuchs etc.

I'm talking about the theoretical advancements done in rocket science. Those were principally all Europeans (and mostly done by Germans prior and during WW2). I'm not talking about their interns, janitors, etc.

Alexander couldn't conquer the Illyrians (just north of him).

Glad to see your not a raging anti-Semite. Many of the more white nationalist on their board wouldn't agree with you.

So you think that all of the various minorities that worked toward the moon landing were nothing more then just janitors? A statement of both ignorance and stupidity.

For example....Farouk El-Baz (Egypt) was the scientist working for NASA would helped pinpoint the spot needed to land on the moon.
