Can be or are they oppressed?
triangle.128k says2015-09-03T01:09:34.3569463Z
Everyone on stormfront thinks whites are severely oppressed.
Haroush says2015-09-03T01:15:44.3360327Z
I mean exactly what I say..
Haroush says2015-09-03T01:20:22.1323555Z
Let me say this if you are going to be a complete PC idiot, please do us all a favor and just skip the poll. Thank you.
TBR says2015-09-03T01:35:56.0966849Z
He is not being PC, he is asking the right question. Can be and are being are different.
Haroush says2015-09-03T01:38:09.3683392Z
And it is completely obvious what I said dur dur..
TBR says2015-09-03T01:41:11.7867971Z
Right. Then it is a silly question. Anyone can be oppressed. White men in America, and most of the world are not oppressed in any way.
Haroush says2015-09-03T01:49:19.6266357Z
" Oh, let me not make a mistake on my answer despite I can easily explain this if the questioner mislead me." " I would be damned for hell if I dare even made a mistake agreeing white people are being oppressed right now."
TBR says2015-09-03T01:51:49.5279966Z
What are you on about now Haroush?
Haroush says2015-09-03T02:11:37.7252132Z
You must have stuffed socks in your ears or you gouged your eyeballs. Which ever one you did is tremendously prohibiting you from comprehending English.
TBR says2015-09-03T02:50:59.4489703Z
If you are attempting to pseudo quote me, I answered your poll, agreed with Atheist-Independent that the question can work two ways, and finally elaborated on my answer. So far, I can't see what you have added to the conversation you have attempted to start. What does this poll mean to you? What of the results?

CAN white men be oppressed? Yes, anyone can. ARE white men oppressed? Absolutely not. In the overwhelming majority of places in the world where white men are present, they hold the most power, privilege, and in most cases, wealth.
Renegader says2015-09-04T05:46:28.8120672Z
That's all true but mainly wealthy because they established countries which became developed nations.
briantheliberal says2015-09-04T21:17:04.9238461Z
Renegader, yes at the expense of other nations and people. "White" countries didn't become wealthier just by being established by white men. The white men who were in change of these places stole land, resources from other nations, and killed millions of people to have the wealth that they currently possess and passed down through generations. With very few exceptions of course being Scandinavian countries who managed to become developed without colonization and brute force.

@briantheliberal The Nordic countries took part in empire building. In fact they did it before most nation in Europe. The North Sea empire, Swedish empire, Norwegian empire, Danish empire, the reign of the Vikings, etc. All European nations took part in empire building. Its kind of what Europe does best.
briantheliberal says2015-09-04T21:38:31.2092825Z
58539672, Yes I know, I was speaking on a more modern perspective. Scandinavian countries rarely ever colonized other nations outside of Europe in recent history in comparison to the British, French, Germans, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Italians and Russians.
58539672 says2015-09-04T21:58:05.6331988Z
@briantheliberal Well, how modern we talking about here? I mean, Sweden let go of Norway in 1905 and Finland didn't become independent until 1917, which is close to the time that Germany lost its empire. And Denmark didn't give up Iceland until 1944, which is not that far off when the French, Italian and British started losing their empires. Sure their on a smaller scale, but time wise they're not that incredibly far off from the rest.
briantheliberal says2015-09-04T22:31:31.7802122Z
I said outside of Europe.
58539672 says2015-09-04T23:13:16.4868338Z
@briantheliberal Does Empire Building change when it leaves a geographical boundary? Does it become worse? Or is it somehow justifiable when it remains in a single continent?
briantheliberal says2015-09-04T23:33:33.7704454Z
No, it doesn't make it worse or better just not the same. Europeans divided the world into separated continents, races, and divisions, effectively excluding and separating themselves from the rest of the world in such a way that it justifies them controlling themselves and profiting off of the land and resources of other people but not themselves. That is why is Russia regaining control of Ukraine was considered an international travesty but nobody says anything about American and European corporations sucking resources and cheap labor out of underdeveloped Latin American, Caribbean, African, and Asian countries for their own benefit.
briantheliberal says2015-09-04T23:34:24.9397574Z
Controlling others*
spyder says2015-10-16T02:41:30.0419405Z
Anyone can be oppressed
Haroush says2015-10-16T10:56:21.3480115Z
Yeah, we have a clear example of white men being oppressed right above us.. Uh hummm.. Bri...An..
