By the majority of whites? That seems like a gross generalization.I am rather surprised...I would think the racist nature of this ad is obvious; even white people should be able to see it. I do, and I am half white( & half Japanese).
Also, yes, non-white people & especially blacks have historically been ostracized and dehumanized by the majority of whites
Have you ever read about the north african and ottoman slave trade? Search that stuff up.
Thing is, people are being oppressed and made slaves mainly because they are vulnerable. There were apparantly irish slaves as well in America, although certain leftist newspapers are "de-bunking" it.
The trans Atlantic slave trade was massive and expansive, no doubt about it. However, the fact remains that other africans enslaved a vast portion of the slaves and the Europeans bought them.
One can see how people are capable of betraying their own in any war or conflict for riches and other comforts when the invaders have superior technology and firepower
And the vast majority of americans did not own slaves, the rich elite owned slaves, not the average Joe.
By all means, I am not trying to justify these actions, but can't we agree that humans in general have extraordinary potential to be cruel, no matter the race?
By using the term "white people" it seems to forget that within that term there are many social classes and peoples, to say that all whites have a certain outlook is quite problematic, don't you think?
