Do you have any idea how Africans would be living if they never had any contact with whites?

Answers:

White colonialism is a "bad" thing because when any population (regardless of ethnicity) colonizes another population, they force the colonized population to assimilate to their own cultural values, beliefs, norms, and often religion. This is "bad" because it basically eradicates the culture of the those that are colonized. From an anthropological perspective, it is heartbreaking.

It may be bad thing to those that got colonialized but It was a different world back then. Everyone was trying to conquer everyone else. Our ancestors were just better at it than most.

The extermination of whole groups of people and their cultures is probably why people think white colonialism was a bad thing... The privileges of modern society does not make up for invading their lands, treating them like animals and exploiting them. What kind of self righteous person believe that they are superior to another race based on their societies advancement. Who are you to say that you are better than another group of people because your culture is different.

anybody can nitpick the consequential boons and merits of an event and make it sound as though it's a good thing in the long run.

Anti-white racism.

Of course not all, but many people are very racist against whites, and thus against anything that was/is predominantly caused or done by mostly whites.

For instance, slavery was common in Africa in the 1400s, and only brought to the Americas because slave owners in Africa were willing to sell their fellow black brothers to Europeans (who happened to be on their way to India to buy pepper). When blacks owned black slaves, that is to be ignored, but when whites owned them, that was an atrocity to be continually harped on and denounced to this day--according to the anti-white racists of today.

As Mohammed Ali said after his first trip to Africa, "Thank God my granddaddy got on that boat". He recognized that as bad as slavery was in antebellum America, it has been far outweighed by the good that Europeans have brought to Africa and the Africans such as improved farming techniques that have put food in the mouths of Africans who in the past would have simply starved to death. The continent of Africa is a land of vast natural resources that just sat in the ground for centuries, until Europeans came along and showed the Africans how to extract them, and use that wealth to turn their backwater mud hut villages into thriving modern metropolitan cities.

After WW2, devastated Japan and Germany were treated as colonies for a few years by a mostly white America. Now they are among the leading economic powers in the world. If any third world country leaders gave a hoot about their people, they would beg America to come in and colonize them, and even ask that they be added as a state.

I created the big bang. Nothing would be here if not for me.

Imagine being so insecure and unsuccessful
That the only thing you can be proud of
Is being born white :)

We brought the best living standards to the world. Sadly, now the world just takes from us, calls us bad names, whines and cries, then expects white people to take care of them.
