If you’re white and you’re ashamed of being white, don’t be.
Whites have lived on the same planet as the rest of humanity, yet whites have managed to create democratic societies that uphold universal human rights and personal liberties while also generating massive economic wealth and scientific advancement.
Yes, whites practiced slavery and wars of aggression. The evil of slavery and imperialism should not be minimized or overlooked.
That being said, point to a nation, race, or culture that has few to no skeletons in their closet and achieved half of what the western world achieved.
If you think, for some strange reason, that you should be ashamed of your history, you must not know a lot about Asian, African, or Middle Eastern history.
WATCH as I give you a brief history lesson.
If I had slavery in my family linage, I’d feel guilty too… Oh, wait: Literally everyone has slavery in their family linage, because slavery was part of the human condition back then? It was the British who effectively outlawed slavery, launching a global campaign of abolition.
You are an individual. You are not responsible for other people’s actions or hardships.
The only people who should be ashamed of their country, their race, their history are the people who negatively contribute to those things.
