I mean, empirically, white-majority societies are the best places for minorities. Brown and black majority societies are awful for minorities in their midst. So if you're going to have a problem as a minority in the west, you need to stop casting it as a problem of "whiteness," since clearly your "own people" haven't managed to even get to the same level of progress yet.







In other words, you can have your say on how bad or how "not special" Europe/Western civilization is when places that have majorities that look like whatever minority you are produce outcomes for minorities in THEIR societies that are a FRACTION as positive and progressive as that of the western world.




Otherwise, the failure of replication of positive outcomes for minorities in other parts of the world belies any special contribution "non-whiteness" has to European/western civilization development. If white folks were the demons your lot cast them as, then minorities in the west would be treated like minorities everywhere else in the world.
In all honesty, I wonder why this even has to be explained. It's absurd how the obvious has become so distorted and twisted by the Frankfurt school of thinking. Gimme Occam's razor any day. Sometimes I feel that most sensible, free-thinking human beings have been gaslighted by the leftist oppression industry to believe that 2+2=7. Really, what planet am I living on?

Any honest person will look around and see that western democracies are fundamentally aspirational and inspirational for the individual looking to improve her life. The immigration trends buttress that tenfold.

First the leftist critical theorist say to be racist is the least ethical thing to be because were all equal. Then they go on to explain ad nauseum how one race the white race and their culture is morally and ethically inferior to the other races.

The left completely fine with other ethnicities/races all taking credit for their ancestors' achievements, but god forbid a Caucasian does it.

They'd rather us all to feel collective guilt for the sins of a few.

And they are madder than he-- that we have had enough of it.
Naw. The problem is that you want to be praised unconditionally and be patted on the back. But anything that's a bit more balanced, and tells the real truth - you define as hate.

Can't help you with your neediness.

I'm sorry but your tone and personal attacks just make you look petty.
