Sure. but other peoples have done the same acts. I believe it was the Mongols that spread the Black Plague to Europe by catapulting diseased animals and corpses into cities.

Also - Europe didn't invent slavery, slavery was created around the world on it's own. Like, Native Americans kept slaves before Europe reached North America.

The Aborigines in Australia caused many species to go extinct. The ancestors of the Native Americans wiped out many species.
So true but who gets more blamed? (I think you know)

Before you bash Christopher Columbus read REAL history which entitles you to read up and look at different countries interpretations. Go look at truths instead of lies. Columbus was not a general or a soldier, he was an explorer. A lot of misinformation, bad media, bad teachers with political agendas (on both sides), and a culture constantly looking to point fingers

Give me any culture and i can find bad. Give me any religion and i can find bad, its human nature.

TODAYS WORLD IS OBSESSED AT LOOKING FOR ALL THE NEGATIVES WHEN WE SHOULD BE LOOKING FOR THE GOOD PEOPLE AND RAISING THEM TO WHAT THE STANDARD SHOULD BE.
Well he killed off the natives and brought slaves to america so that makes me very ashamed

I know there's goods and bad in every culture and religion but europeans get the most blamed and hated. I'm sure you agree with me 100%

Right but thanks to the media, internet, and extremists, you won't see or hear and positively

And Britain was colonized by Rome, like much of Europe.

You realize European nations were colonized by non-Europeans, right? And that non-Europeans had there own colonial periods, right?

Exploiting other ethnic groups for space and resources isn't only a European sin.
I never knew the Romans colonized Britain. i thought it was southern europe, west asia, and north africa

The only European countries I know that were colonized by non Europeans was Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Malta, Albania, and I think Cyprus. But not to sound ignorant but they didn't commit as much killing, genocide, raping, and slavery like europeans. So......

France and italy are the food capitals of the world!
Youll find loads of people claim italian heritage, even if they have no right too. Juzt because its such a great place with amazing people. We get the same with people trying to claim irish or scottish heritage, though we have no flair like you lot 😝
