‘Diversity’ of immigration is not the important factor, but rather quality of immigration.

Quality can come from anywhere, but it doesnt by definition have to.

The concept is readily twisted for obvious reasons. Quality is standard-based and therefore inherently exclusive, which makes sjw types uncomfortable. Unconditional diversity implies universal inclusivity, which makes the MillerTimes and Locos etc more comfortable discussing publicly, since theyre very rank-and-file conformists to popular dogma.
People think you’re racist but fail to understand the reality

Our society is based and predicated off western civilization. The more Europeans went to SA the more the land benefited from it

Exactly. There is no universal definition of ‘success.’ In western countries, we simply measure it by western standards. If a bunch of bumbling white people showed up in australia’s aborigibal outback and couldnt figure out how to identify edible plants, or consistently snare prey, or predict the weather, theyd be seen in that environment as lower in competence.

ON AVERAGE, people who will be most likely to succeed by western standards, will be western people. Thats like basic evolution. Not including immigrants obviously, as they often represent the overachievers from each culture. But in terms of group vs group averages.

Ofc there will be exceptional individuals from all backgrounds and that’s perfectly cool. It’s not about hating or holding anyone down. We just cant lie about shit with potentially serious social ramifications, because a bunch of wet panty dweebs are more concerned about feelings than whether we have a sustainable social model.

Ultimately, ‘equality’ is simply a fairy tale that guys like ItsMillerTime tells his kids at night.

Altho he actually believes it too which is weird

Northern Europe shits on Southern Europe from an economic perspective.

Since the industrial revolution, yeah. It just makes sense that industrial expertise will be emphasized more greatly in colder landscapes, while agricultural production is more emphasized in warmer climes. I doubt thered be much or any divergence in terms of genetic predisposition in just the last 300 years or so, but certainly in terms of cultural and economic priorities.

Lol nah homez. You can say anything and everything you want about what the US did in the past, I literally take zero offense to it. Couldnt possibly care any less. Im worried bout dat hurr and now. And youre not even an American.

But like... the way you were rambling in one long breath and saying things like “just for starters champ”

Always sounds like youre HELLA bitter about all things ‘Merica.

Doesnt bother me or nothin bro, I actually find it amusing. But I also feel kinda bad for you cuz obvs there’s some feelings goin on there. I can hear the emotions in your tone when you talk about America the Beautiful. Sounds like youre struggling finding closure on stuff.

This is a pretty accurate description of “the white mans world” and “white privilege”. I can also see why whites see it as belittling their personal accomplishments as well. It poses as a bit of a conundrum for many people as it’s a much deeper and complicated issue than most perceive.

TheMan does come off as a jilted ex lover when it comes to the topic of America. It’s so bad but yet for the life of him he cannot keep their name out of his mouth.

Truth to be told, I couldn't care less what you, Chris or any other goofball here thinks about me or my opinions but if you want to pull yourselves out of your "rah rah rah America da bess" ignorance and educate yourselves a bit, I suggest you at least watch Oliver Stone's The Untold History of the United States.
