... and was also responsible for the ending of the global slave trade.
He also ignores that, of all the European empires, the British one was actually the most benign, even benevolent. We tried to develop the colonies, to educate the people and "civilise" them - unlike the French, Belgians, Spanish or Dutch who were ratherr more savage in their treatment of the natives.

Disgusting. Being British means nothing? That means being Japanese, being German, being Xhosa, being Mandarin, being Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, or Jewish means nothing.

That is the opposite of a great society
If it wasn't so sad it would be hilarious, those who own media (J's) are putting it to good use again!
The British isles happens to be the homeland of a group of white people yet here you have panels of non white foreigners and second generation immigrants dictating to white natives what it means to be British!
These foreigners assert that we are to tolerate and love their culture (multiculturalism) yet with the same breath they announce the British do not have a culture or historic inheritance.
How strange is it that you have a bunch of people who's ancestors to not come from these lands talking about what it means to be British? What would happen if a bunch of white native British went on Indian national TV and started talking about what it means to be Indian?
Why do we tolerate this stupidity, we tolerate this because the same people who are promoting this rubbish through their ownership of the media have also opened the borders to a influx of foreigners from other lands. These foreigners are then strangely consulted on what it means to be British....what a joke.
I am guessing that those behind this are busy doing this in all western "targeted" country's, let foreigners dictate your law's, identity, customs. A form of warfare, a means of destroying a country from within and we continue to tolerate it.
plus Great Britain is a mistranslation of the French Grande Britannia as there was no English channel separating us and Europe in Ice Ages.

Now the only thing left to wonder is if the "white" technological advances is actually advancing, or just becoming less with more
Truth of the matter is, we have no idea what Africa or any indigenous peoples would be like today without Western interference. The West has intentionally fomented wars between tribes, made water and food scarce to tribes in areas that has minerals, gold, diamonds or whatever else we find valuable... then offered 'solutions' to their poverty via mining/factory jobs or arming them to fight other tribes.
Dont be ridiculous.
Africa had a long history of tribal warfare and poverty even before us evil whites turned up.
That why we got slaves from them in the first place, the savages were so busy at each other throats and selling each other into slavery already. Europeans just took advantages of that.
Instead of playing the blame game Africa should grow up take responsibility for there mess there in, then they may be able to get somewhere.
Using past European inference as a excuse to justify there current genocides, corruption and civil wars is just pathetic.edit on 9-4-2014 by crazyewok because: (no reason given)

You obviously weren't reading the discussion I jumped in? Anyway I said white because someone else did, I consider it all human, but our technological advances are disgusting. Why are their not drones flying shooting food at people?edit on th2014-04-09T13:32:53-05:0020143030-05:00Wed, 09 Apr 2014 13:32:53 -05002014p01 by ScottProphhit because: (no reason given)edit on th2014-04-09T13:33:12-05:0020143030-05:00Wed, 09 Apr 2014 13:33:12 -05002014p01 by ScottProphhit because: (no reason given)
i am an individual. I think for myself. Its people not thinking independatly which leads to all the worlds problems. Independent thinking people will never be conned into blindly following evil books or dictators. Think for yourself for once. Resist the evil dooers. Condemn the barbarism which you follow blindly. God is everything but people seperate themselves from the whole,by not being individually minded and joining a gang,a religion or secret society.

All people are the same while being different? How can you not understand the most simple human thing. The whole worlds state of affairs is because people think of themselves as individuals. You aren't an individual. Your mind is part of the conciousness of the whole race. This whole seperation is an illusion. The space between the molecules of your skin and the space between molecules of your clothes is the same space. The space between the atoms of you and the space between the atoms of me is also the same
