White's progressed past everyone by shear luck. We happened to be the first to discover coal and industrialize. Before then the far east was far ahead of us. Location is why whites have progressed so well. We have trade outlets to the east, the west, and to the far east and middle east.

Race is a really idiotic concept though. People are people. There is no difference based on skin color, that's just from millions of years of being in a certain part of the globe so that vitamin D could be efficiently gathered from what sun resources were available.

I think ignorant people are more ignorant than ever. That's what the poll option should be. People like gonzo are ignorant as they've ever been, as are people who actually think race is something quantifiable outside of melanin count are increasing their ignorance as well.

This country isn't focused on what really matters, the founding principles, that's why it will collapse in our lifetime.

Here's the irony: Animal Mother claims whites are superior, he is white, yet he holds a laughably unintelligent viewpoint supported by nothing more than his opinion, thus making him inferior.

This thread is hilarious.

Look at black communities. Now look at white communities. Where would you rather live, and why? I'd take living in the white community because I like being able to leave my doors unlocked and not worrying about catching stray bullets from a drive by. The fact remains that white communities and white countries have less crime and are generally much more productive than communities and countries of color.

I hate when people talk about "founding principles" without giving any sentiment as to what that means. This country is doing plenty of things right and plenty of things wrong, but an appeal to founding principles as being our downfall is just silly.

Countries that were slow to industrialize due to many factors such as imperialism, colonialism, and tribalism; can be expected to struggle. Its not like they were left alone lesse faire by the west.





Everyone should be for the side of liberty.

How are we "not focused" on those principles? How will those lead to a "collapse"?

Also, liberty is vague and basically meaningless. Foreign policy of colonial america (noninterventionalism) is apples and oranges. Not going to bother with sound money. And I don't see a loss of focus on entreprenuership or self responsibility. Be less vague. Make a point or don't.

Clearly you don't understand we could have built a fleet and been world police, but chose not to because we were non-interventionists.

Got it. So had Europe not gone into Africa, the continent would be a booming 1st world pioneer of technology and culture bursting at the seams with economic growth and prosperity.

Makes perfect sense.

I don't quite understand the pride behind having a "superior" race. Even if white people are smarter than blacks, how is that something to be proud of? It's hardly an achievement. It didn't require any work, skill, or character from yourself. As you said yourself, it's simply DNA. To me I don't see the difference between being proud of being white and being proud of being born athletic. If I were born with an athletic body, but failed to work hard or do anything then I have nothing to be proud of. If I work hard and earn achievements, then sure be proud. But, in the same way, being born white (and supposedly more intelligent than blacks) is nothing to be proud of.

If white cultures have made tons of achievements you can be proud of those, but not of your race itself; that's a cultural achievement. I can understand Germans being proud of their achievements. But simply being white isn't an identity anywhere else but in America. Being proud of white achievements is like a Chinese person being proud of asian achievements. There is no identity in race to be proud of; just culture. And if we want to get into a competition on the achievements of races, white people aren't a run away winner by any standards.

You do realize for example the difference between black and white people is more than just the shade of our skin right?

Lol. Your posts are consistently bad and tend to lack any reference to history, science, logic, really anything other than random emotional reactions.

I don't get the superiority thing either. But I think there is something to feeling pride in ones heritage and what they were and are able to accomplish. Why not carry the torch so to speak?

Pride is good, but over emphasis on one race leads to that whole supremacy thing. Outside of clan leadership there are plenty of examples of successful people from all races in all walks of life. Just because you were lucky geographically doesn't mean you're better.

As I pointed out, the problem really doesn't come from race, but the fact that people no longer want to be "americans". They want to be "african-americans" or "mexican-americans" or what have you. They want to cling to their "culture" and not intigrate into the culture that has formed in the US over the last 200 years.
