White people have been shitty for a long time. Asian cultures had technology but they didn't feel the need to conquer the world and invade other countries, brutalize the people, and steal their resources like the White Europeans did
I have often noted that the Chinese invented gunpowder a very long time ago. They used it to make pretty fireworks.

As soon as the Europeans learned of its existence, instant guns and cannons, killing machines.

What does that tell us of culture and attitudes.

As we have often noted you're wrong. The Chinese invented guns with bamboo barrels right after they invented gunpowder and it was the first known use of gunpowder as a weapon.
Lloyd claiming that Asians didn't feel the need to conquer and that's wrong too. WWII started by the Japanese when we tried to curtail their take over of Asia and the current expansion of Chinas sphere of influence in SE Asia are evidence that he's wrong too.

Well, finally. Someone with a valid point. But let's be more specific. WHITE MEN have been shitty for a long time.
More specifically WHITE MALE PRIVILEGE built this country. Just ask them. They'll tell you--loud and proud.
They'll boast about how they grabbed and pillaged and raped and enslaved their way through the decades--how they just took what they wanted and they are still taking.
Who owns this country? WHO manages/governs this country? WHO makes the laws, carries them out? Who enforces the laws? Who judges the laws?
White men have never made up the majority of the US population, and yet from the country’s beginnings, they have made up most of its political decision-makers. The constitution itself is an outrageously undemocratic document. People today are bound by a set of procedural rules that were made without the input of women, African Americans or native people. It was WHITE MEN who finally relented and GRANTED those same people the right to vote--and not without protest.
A constitution written by slaveholders is being interpreted by a tiny room full of white elites who have been given no meaningful popular approval. When you step back and look at the situation objectively, it’s utterly farcical to call the US government democratic.
But change is in the wind and I hope I live long enough to see it thrive---our demographics. Some day SOON this nation will be governed by the very people who SHOULD have been governing all along--minorities and women.

Who was voted in by an electorate that was 75% white, twice.
You say that as if Obama got 75% of the white vote. He didn't. In 2012 Romney got 59% of white votes, and in 2008 McCain got 55%. Trump got 58% of the White vote in 2016. So that means the white people overwhelmingly supported a racist, ignorant, moronic piece of shit like Trump but disliked a decent fellow like Obama. Pretty much says all you need to know about Republican ethics/morality: it sucks.
