" 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."
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, 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.
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.
@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.
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.
