Can you explain why Europeans were much more technologically advanced than the indigenous populations of Africa? I mean, these cultures hadn't even invented sewage systems, which is something the Romans were able to design and implement in 800-735 BC (a long fucking time before "the white man" colonized it)... I mean fuck, without "the white man", they would probably still be in the fucking bronze age.
I don’t really know what kind of history books bigots like you read.
The Great Libraries of Timbuktu? The steel metallurgy of the Haya? Dentistry? Caesarean section? Premature neonatal care? Mathematics, architecture, engineering?
I know it’s hard for a racist like you who imagines “technological advancement” to be some kind of end-all-be-all, or proof of some “inherent intelligence”. I know, I know. It’s hard to imagine, but Europeans have been drawing knowledge from everyone around them since the dawn of time. What did you think ended the Dark Ages?
All houses in the major cities of Harappa and Mohenjo−daro had access to water and drainage facilities. Waste water was directed to covered drains which lined the major streets directed to covered drains, which also lined all major streets. Each home had its own private drinking well and its own private bathroom. The mains that carried wastewater to a cesspit were tall enough for people to walk through. Reservoirs, a central drainage system, fresh water pumped into the homes. Pools. Baths.
Referring to your post about the white privilege comic, what happened to your mother is of course very sad, how she couldn't understand the language, but this isn't something that white people always avoid. She came to an English speaking country, not knowing the language, of course that was bound to happen. If I moved to Japan, I wouldn't understand the language either, I'd struggle as well economically, being pale wouldn't change it. White privilege doesn't exist outside of white countries.

Being privileged doesn’t make you a bad person, denying your privilege does. Having privilege doesn’t mean that your life is sunshine and rainbows. It means that society favors people like you. Your personal experiences do not erase your privilege. Don’t be upset about being told you are privileged, be upset that the things systematically given to you are denied from others.
