The guy is an idiot because he obviously is oblivious of the fact that Middle Easterners were the first to enslave blacks and colonized Africa before any country in post-Roman Europe.

Moreover, middle easterners are caucasian and consider themselves white (even if it has become chic/politically correct in the liberal Western democracies in recent years to characterize them as “people of color”)

Whoever posted this is similarly ignorant of the fact by far, the worst offender of all the European imperial powers so far as promoting white supremacy and enslaving blacks and killing Indians and colonizing were in fact Spain and Portugal. 95% of the blacks brought in chains to the New World were brought to serve white Spanish and Portuguese masters in Latin-America, and there is to this day enormous inequalities between white and non-white Latin-Americans.

Latin-Americans are not morally qualified to point fingers at anyone so far as racism or white supremacy goes. Latin-American countries with large majority non-white or mestizo populations continue to be ruled overwhelmingly by a white Spanish ruling class. The US by comparison has a black president despite its large white Anglo majority.

In short, your race card has been declined due to moral bankruptcy and historical illliteracy.
