What was worse: Europe's rape of the Americas? Or Europe's rape of Africa?
>>
>>575851
Europe's rate of the Americas, by a vast margin.

The colonization of Africa was not only pretty peaceful but also resulted in unprecedented improvements in every aspect of life all across Africa. Whereas the colonization of the Americas was very underhanded and brutal.

>Rape
If by rape you mean building cities, roads, hospitals, schools...

>>575865
What the fuck are you talking about. African colonization wasn't unprecedented improvements in every aspect of life. Do you know what happened in the Belgium Congo? German Sud west Africa? Italian Libya? Ethiopia?
>>
>>575851
Africa's rape of Europe.

Honestly it's mindblowingly unprecedented.

>delusional ignorance

The Kingdom of Benin was sacked and looted by imperialist powers for not acquiescing to exploitative trade agreements.

Except Belgium didn't colonize the Congo, the King of Belgium negotiated to have it more or less be his personal property as an office completely unrelated to his status as King of Belgium. And the international uproar over this was so great he handed it over to parliament. The Congo was literally better off being colonized by Belgium than it was being independent under Leopold.

Never mind the fact that had it not been for the colonization of Africa the entire continent had barely progressed past the stone-age. If you don't think the introduction of modern medicine, agriculture, advanced systems of law and technology that may as well have been from aliens for all the natives knew beforehand isn't good you are retarded.

And now Benin is part of one of the most powerful and prosperous countries in Africa, but boo hoo that they lost a war with Britain - within 9 days and with negligible casualties on their side.

>the entire continent
>what is northern africa
We all know sub-Saharan Africa is a continent.
>>
>>575908
North Africa was also a backwards shitcan.

But sorry I should have said "nearly the entire continent".

>whites ITT literally cannot concieve of civilization apart from industialization

Conceited ignorance. Learn how to think.

Putting bones through your nose, enslaving each other, and using the bones of people you've eaten as decorations is not civilization.
