My ancestors were settlers, not immigrants.

My ancestors were conquerors…and then settled.

My ancestors conquered England. There honestly wasn't much to conquer here that wasn't recently conquered by the injuns. We didn't exactly absorb their populations or tax structures.

My ancestors never settled... for tyrants :p

My ancestors jumped outta boats, pillaged, plundered and took over most of Northern Europe. Then we moved down to Hamburg Germany for 400 years. In 1847, we all hopped on a boat and came to Wisconsin, which was still mostly untamed wilderness. We didn't pay a cartel to rape our women and toss us in the back of a semi tractor trailer so that we could loot the American tax payer with our freebies and handouts. I'd say, we're different.

Burritos will be our currency at some point if this keeps up.

White people are paying for the destruction of the world as we know it.

Look at contributions from Indians and Chinese. Math, gunpowder, etc.

Math in is modern complexity came from the middle east.

Some did by the Babylonians. But geometry came from Greece and calculus came from England (Newton).

Calculus came from France slightly earlier.

1
FloridaMan1776 1 point ago +1 / -0

Some of the ground work for calculus came out of France and Germany and other places. But Sir Isaac Newton is generally attributed to have created the field of calculus as we know it now.

I believe the Chinese also invented fireworks, but I could be wrong.

Glass was perhaps a more worthwhile invention.

You also immigrate to nations with boundaries. You don't immigrate to an unsettled land.

Exactly. Walk into the desert with no resources doesn't make you an immigrant.

It makes you an idiot on a suicide mission.

If you wish to transform the desert, that makes you a pioneer and a settler, not an immigrant.

You're describing thousands of pioneers who tried bringing cast iron ovens with them across the plains.

"tried"

Did

I never confuse settlers and pioneers with immigrants.

Another answer - if we're all immigrants, why was colonialism, especially in Africa, wrong?

Since Africa is supposedly the motherland of all sapiens, no one's colonizing Africa.

We're merely returning back to our homeland, right?

Yes, let's do like the Native Americans did, peacefully welcome and integrate those immigrants to our land and then watch as they abuse our lands and ways of living, genocide us, and completely conquer our world.

They weren't "peaceful and welcoming" though.

I recently found out I had an ancestor on the mayflower! 😤🇺🇸

I traced a relative back to Plymouth Colony. I don't know if he actually came over on the Mayflower, but he did live in the original pilgrim colony. I found a photo of his old, crumbly grave on Find A Grave website.

My ancestors were conquerers. Not faggy settlers, or faggy immigrants.

If it's ok for south americans to migrate here and transform the society, then it's ok for white people to travel here and transform the place. OR it's wrong for both. Pick one.

6
stagolee 6 points ago +6 / -0

Realistically, migration is a fact of the planet. In the abstract, it's just something that happens. However, as a person living in a prosperous country I have a vested interest in the welfare of my society, so while migration may happen I just don't want it here in an uncontrollable and overwhelming form. I'm not "wrong" for that belief, and the migrants aren't wrong for wanting to be here. It's not about hatred or bigotry, it's about simple self interest and well as logical planning. If migration breaks our system, now we have failure in the north and south instead of just the south...It's not about colonialism, or hatred, or any other emotionally driven response. It's about basic survival.

Indians were immigrants too. Just a long time ago.

Not all natives were murderous and not all white settlers were benevolent travelers.

All Americans are immigrants but some immigrants build better than others.

You forgot to mention the part where they enslaved, murdered and raped the natives.

I see your dimwit ass ate the mainstream "fiery but peaceful" Indian narrative. Check and see if your brain is working, fag.

But enough about the Zulu. This is America's day.
