I hope I live long enough to see the global downfall of white supremacy.
I think we share a goal, but I prefer to think of it in terms of the rising up and coming together of all people so we can care for eachother and our planet, rather than our own personal growth.
I said I hope I live long enough to see the global downfall of white supremacy. I did not stutter.

i am not going to waste my time with you, at all.
So sick of Europeans trying to act like almost every country on the continent didn’t collaborate with the Nazis. Unless you are talking about Denmark, every Nazi occupied country had a huge number of collaborators, and Ukraine was probably the worst. It’s not like Jews weren’t fleeing Ukraine for decades before Hitler came to power. It’s not like Ukrainian historians aren’t trying to whitewash the history of the Nazi Collaborators they want to lionize for fighting against the Soviet Union. Ukraine has a lot of Jewish blood on its hands. An awful lot. The Nazis just gave them an excuse and a permission slip to do worse.
My great aunt was turned into the Germans when they occupied Kiev by her Ukranian building maintenance person, because she stayed behind to be with her wounded husband who was brought back to Kiev from the front, instead of evacuating with her family.
The Ukranian police came to hospital where they shot her (non-Jewish) husband in the head in his bed, and she was taken to Babi Yar and killed there by the Germans.
Poland was overrun by the Nazis, but the Polish people for the most part were pretty happy to turn in their Jewish neighbors. Not every single last Pole, but a very great many. That Poland was a victim of Nazi aggression does not make them less complicit in their active partaking of the genocide of Jews in their midst.
This also happened in France, Hungary, and basically fucking everywhere.
We can even cast a stone at Switzerland, notorious for turning away refugees at the border (and as a matter of fact, even with this heinous behaviour, Switzerland took in more Jews than the USA. FACT.)
Europe, I am not impressed. Using the Nazis as a scapegoat for your own antisemitic crimes during WWII doesn’t fool the survivors of your genocide.
Are you serious? Ukraine, which is still openly antisemitic? Ukraine, probably one of the worst places to have been a Jew in the Soviet Union, WHICH IS REALLY SAYING SOMETHING. a place that has regularly committed pogroms against its Jewish population up until the Shoah, and killed ~100k Jews in the span of a few years in the 1600s, somehow wasn’t responsible for any Jewish deaths at a time that they could have gotten away with it? Babi Yar didn’t happen without collaboration—at the very least, the police department helped. 33k Jews died IN ONE DAY. The locals helped.
I am so sick of gentiles shirking responsibility. The whole damn continent was complicit. This is as ridiculous as claiming the average German citizen had nothing to do with it when they were busy filling our positions and looting our homes and businesses.
