What in the flying fuck are you even talking about? You seem to think that I'm arguing something that I'm not arguing at all. I did not imply that America's current state exists in a vacuum. I'm not refusing to acknowledge the history that lead up to the current day. I'm not refusing to acknowledge that I benefit from shit people did in the past, just as every single human being has.
Literally the only thing that I am saying is that it is absolutely fucking god damned pointless to "feel bad" or "feel guilty/responsible" for bad shit people did in the past, whether it benefited you personally or not. I do not want or expect North Africans to feel bad/guilty about the Barbary Slave Trade. Everyone involved in the Barbary Slave Trade is long dead. We can trace the effects of the Barbary Slave Trade through history to see how it has impacted the present, but that is about it.
You are arguing against a strawman, not my post.
