For the past two centuries, the "overthrowing of elites" has seen white colonial powers, one after another, thrown down. Liberty for the masses has been wrested from the hands of the British, the French, the Spanish, the Americans, the Portuguese, the Dutch, the Italians, and the Germans, all of whom refused it.
As if no whites ever supported the ending of Colonial powers. As if there have not been many battles fought within European states to establish and maintain liberty. As if labor unions haven't fought the powers that be on numerous occasions for worker's rights. As if white people in American didn't support the Civil Rights Movement, and oppose the Vietnam war. You will have to do better than this false claim.
Didn't say other cultures have not done the same things, only that whites have been more successful.
Do you think whites deserve any credit for anything?
There are many many things the many diverse cultures of Europe have in common that can be identified as white culture. You can change the name, but it doesn't change the fact. Just as there a great many different types of cats, they all have certain traits in common.
Once again, no where do I "tear down other cultures", assert "that non-whites have never done anything", and you are the one who comes off as the pupil of the elites. If you are going to make these claims about my opinion, then provides some quotes to back up your claims. You don't do this, because this argument you keep making has no basis in reality. It is pure projection on your part.
I learned about Jackson's role in ordering the Trail of Tears in grade school. Maybe I went to a better school than you did.
I don't know who John Brown is,
but we did cover Fredrick Douglas. Maybe it was what I paid attention to in class that is the difference, and not the school.
While the white working class isn't doing nearly as well as we were a little over a decade ago, we are still doing much better than the rest of the world, with a few exceptions when you compare all of the U.S. with much smaller sections of the world.
By the way, most working class whites don't want to go to the country club. They would rather go fishing. You sure make a whole lot of judgments against people of whom you know nothing.
Umm, if you paid any attention, you would know that I see Dick Cheney as the embodiment of evil, Darth Cheney would be a better name for him. The same type of elites convince the gullible that there are 72 virgins in heaven waiting for them if they blow themselves up in the name of god.
It is people like you spreading propaganda lies, even if you think you are right, who help encourage the lies that convince people it is ok to blow up women and children in the market.
It is not me who is trying to wrap chains around my neck, it is tools like you who spread propaganda and thereby serve the elites who is trying to bring the down fall of the working class, irregardless of color.
The Torch of Knowledge is there for you to grasp, but first you must put aside your prejudices.

The reason I've been given why there is no "white" culture (which is a blatant lie ofcourse) is because whites have never been oppressed enough by another race to actually create themselves some culture.

You were claiming that "fighting for liberty" is an exclusively white thing. This is obviously false. I countered by pointing out that for most of the last two centuries, the "fight for liberty" has primarily been nonwhites seeking liberty from the tyranny of European powers.

wow white people and their arrogance absolutely amuse me.
hey buddy it's not all about you guys. for most of history ya'll have been the ruling elite(minus egypt) so if the elite hates the whites then the elite hate themselves. blah
What we see now is the need to make white people poor, marginalised and ineffective and multiculturalised. The stability brought about by the 'rule of law', consumerism and capitalism created the elites - but now they want more than they deserve and don't want the same checks and balances that made their prosperity able to exist. I think that they are sure that nationalism, racism and blind competitive struggling will control the masses and further their power base. Thus they bite the hands that feed them.
I did quote you saying exactly that. Seriously, pay attention to what you write. Also you might want to look up such literary terms as "context" and "inferred meaning."
, and you can't provide a quote to back this claim, because it is nothing but a slanderous attack on your part, and a typical example of the nastiness in your posts.
"fighting for liberty" is an exclusively white thing
whites were the superior race
Europeans happened to hit the financial jackpot first. pretty much everything you see in Europe past 1500 is a result of that Jed Clampett-style lucky strike.

And it’s even sadder to have to point out the most obvious fatuity in those “anti-fascist groups” litany of evil—“the British Empire’s association with slavery.” The British Empire’s principal association with slavery is that it abolished it. Before William Wilberforce, the British Parliament, and the brave men of the Royal Navy took up the issue, slavery was an institution regarded by all cultures around the planet as as permanent a feature of life as the earth and sky. Britain expunged it from most of the globe.

No, thinking that the elites are better than the working class is embracing the slave mentality, making yourself a slave.
