As I read and
post articles from early to mid last century technology and science magazines, it
occurs to me how much Western civilization contributed to the world during that
period in spite of its acknowledged failings in some areas. Western civilization
fought major wars in the last century - sacrificing hundreds of thousands of our
countrymen's lives* - to keep people free from the iron-fisted rule of dictators.
Do some research into what kinds of atrocities other countries committed that drew
us into those wars. Keep that in mind, please, as you listen to the increasingly
frequent brazen, disparaging and racist commentary against White Europeans and their
descendants by elitists in the entertainment industry, in the press, and in government
offices. I, for one, am sick of the 'dead White men' and 'Whiteness' slanders, and
wonder why people in positions to challenge it are not doing so.
This might be the first occurrence in the history of mankind where a race of
people self-annihilates out of an insane, unjustifiable concept of needing to atone
for misdoings of prior generations. Which other race seeks to extinct itself because
of the way it treated other people groups in the world - both within and without
their particular race? I can answer that for you - none.
The next time you hear someone, regardless of race, angrily indict White people's
history, ask yourself, if you are White, whether you are willing to suffer the personal
assault against your motives or even your mere existence by ignoring the comment.
Challenge the assertion by educating yourself on your race's uncountable positive
contributions to the modern world and citing some of the atrocities committed by
other races. I do.
Defending your right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness is part of
your birthright - at least for now. Oh, and it's not racist, either.
