    Colonisation may have helped some places who were literally so poor they couldn't afford seeds to eat.

    Colonisation was a very different story for countries like India who were bloody rich. Colonisation stripped the Indians of all their wealth. India has 27% of the WORLDS GDP pre-colonisation, and post-colonisation it was reduced to 3%...but hey, thanks for the railways.
    Countries like India was bloody rich...for nobles. I mean for common folk life wasn't that much different. I would even argue that west often raised the quality of living just to make poor masses hate nobility.

    And what's use was for that GDP? It's not like they were building space shuttles and britains came and destroyed it.
    And also recent "colonization-like" action in Japan helped Japan a lot in a sense. I heard somewhere a quote about the reason why some countries became like Japan or South Asia, while others became like different african or south american countries. l for that I can't find it for now.


    P.S. found a quote: America gives freedom to live according to the mindset. And if we look at the history it looks like true - some countries under USA influence became rich and prosper, others failed to tribe societies.

    I really wanna attend a lecture like this just so I can see wtf they actually teach.

    Question tho: If somebody says something "unknowingly racist" and everybody around him didn't know either, was it all that racist? I mean you've not directly offended any minorities 'cause they didn't think it was racist either soooo...?

    Some universities are allowing this, many people are accepting it and doing this means unis and people are pushing this agenda to a degree

    Not really. If you call Universities complicit, then I'll take that. But these are not being pushed at all.

    you can find plenty of talks and university talks about this whole "white evil, black victm" stuff it needs to be stopped instantly, them being complicit and allowing it is disgraceful

    You know, with all this nonsense is it any surprise that you get white extremists now that want to fight back against this? I mean Nazism is identity politics. These people are pushing identity politics. They're forcing people to become white identitarians in order to combat them.

    Uni's are leftist anti-White indoctrination centres

    And sadly many of these places were once founded by largely White men but now used against Whites

    It should be taken seriously though, allowing these to manifest is what has caused racism in the past.

    Really and truly they should be banning this as they wouldn't allow it if it was "black people privilege" or any variation of that so why allow this?

    Sorry I'm having a hard time comprehending what you are saying here.

    I'm against this lecture of so called "white privilege" as it is racist in itself, from what I understand in the OP you share the same view?

    What I'm saying is that in modern society,people are not afraid to speak out about white privilege/supremacy. I'm sure there are meaningful ways to go about it,without causing racial tensions.
