One of my favorites is how the UK pretends they're better than us


The British don't go around spouting off that " We are the greatest country in the world ", which appears to be an American trait.



I've lived in the UK. They're just as arrogant about their country as Americans are.

Bwahahahahahahahaah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

way to skirt the point. Nothing like transparency.


You don't like actual " facts " then ?

Ok.


Do you honestly take no issue with wearing the cloth of slave traders? People who would busted into tribes of Africans, bound their people, tied them to logs, and made them walk miles and miles to their final destination before being shipped off? You think wearing a cloth representing that is fine?


The Scots where slave traders also. How about Scottish=Americans who wear The Kilt as part of their heritage. Have you got an issue with that also ?



Pretty much everyone had slaves at some point.

I think everyone should just get over slavery. Except for the modern examples like the trafficking in persons supported by liberal border policies.

Stellar amount of projection.

B+ You lost points for awkward sentence structure.

They can't talk about that because it doesn't make white Southerners look racist.

I think the confederate deal is stupid...but you make a compelling point.

Lay some facts on me. Expose this for not being what it's appearing to be. Are those scarves displaying the colors of a tribe known for slave trading or not?


No different from a Scotsman wearing a Kilt,

Do you see controversy in every single thing ?

Is this the kilt made from the tartan that the occupying English banned?
Keep on digging because you couldn't make that one up.

There's even tv series depicting white slaves of the Vikings and the Danes.

They don't any more since the sun does set on the empire, how many people are risking their live from all world to sneak into the empire?

i suppose people wouldn't consider southern clothes from the civil war era to be a symbol of slavery or racism, honestly this hypocrisy argument has no end if people go down that route, these kind of arguments are more about feeling defensive when people feel like they are being attacked by everyone, for things they really have no clue about for the most part.

no one likes being the bad guy and feeling like they did something wrong when they're just trying to live their daily lives and never gave thought about race, being called racist because you see a flag and other things differently than people from other states, it feels like a personal attack by outsiders and triggers tribal behavior's like threats, violence, hateful words, irrational arguments, looking for flaws in reason, etc. even more reasonable, intelligent people feel it and get carried away by their emotions.

Shall we have some actual facts.

The English banned the wearing of The Kilt in 1746.

The Scots where in the business of buying and selling of slaves long before that date. When wearing The Kilt was legal.

If you're trying to be clever at least get your facts correct.

Portugal and Britain were the two most ‘successful’ slave-trading countries accounting
for about 70% of all Africans transported to the Americas. Britain was the most
dominant between 1640 and 1807 when the British slave trade was abolished. It is
estimated that Britain transported 3.1 million Africans (of whom 2.7 million arrived) to
the British colonies in the Caribbean, North and South America and to other countries.

facts. Yes, let us get them straight.

When will BLM and their supports get over it ?

Please point out where i have actually stated that Britain was not involved in The Slave Trade.

We all know we where,as where American Slave Traders after 1776.

No one comes out " whiter than white " who was involved in the evils of slave trading.

Here's another Inconvenient FACT.

I am sure 1619 idiots clearly ignore that the early days of America.

Whtes were interned here and used for slave labor of debt, and sexual preference.

At least that's how Black Sails ended.

That's why after all this time their tearing down statues, and whining about flags.

Gotta keep the hatred alive.

In another 200 years.

They'll still be whining about it.
