never-surrender-to-the-world said: The Chinese were oppressed by the Japanese. As were the Koreans. Norther Nigerians oppress southern Nigerians. Most middle eastern countries oppress women. The Inca oppressed fucking anyone they met. Indians oppressed African slaves and Pakistanis. Pakistanis oppress Indians. Need I go on? White people aren't oppressive fucks. People in power with no respect for rights are oppressive fucks.
White people oppressed the Chinese AND the Japanese AND Koreans AND Nigerians AND other Africans AND the Middle Easterners AND Indians AND Pakistanis. If white people didn’t oppress a certain group directly, they made damn sure to facilitate one ethnic group’s oppression of another so they could profit from it.
And the people within those ethnic groups you mentioned? The ones you aren’t a part of in any way shape or form? They have to deal with oppression from white people ON TOP of dealing with oppression from other people of color; the last thing any of them need is for some bumbling white idiot with not even a basic understanding of history and U.S./European foreign relations (YOU) speaking over them.
Don’t act like you give 2 fucks about those people. You don’t. Whatever little research you did to gather those scraps of information was solely for the purpose of attempting to shut up people who refuse to stay silent about white privilege and the racial oppression that resulted from white imperialism.
"People in power with no respect for rights are oppressive fucks."
This is the only sensible sentence you wrote. And that’s only because I took it out of context of the fuckery that was your ask. Open your eyes and LOOK at which racial group is in power. Think about WHY they’re in power. The racial group that colonized the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Australia and other Pacific Islands and made a point to rob, kidnap, and violate the people of those lands- THOSE are the ones in power. Until you quit denying that white people are the cause of the most widespread and long lasting form of racial oppression, you’re an oppressive fuck too.
