'Profoundly unjust.' FIFA boss launches explosive tirade against Western critics on eve of World Cup

Isn’t it hilarious how people are trying to rewrite history to make Europeans look like brutal colonizers trying to destroy peaceful nations across my world? My man, pretty much every nation has done horrendous shit in the last 3,000 years. Slavery want a white inventions. White people *were* slaves in ancient times. Arabs were literally keeping white people as slaves. Slavery in the Arab world has a millennia-old history.

But none of this matters, because you can’t blame modern people for the sins of their fathers. The big difference is that you are still using slaves and aren’t even trying to address your human rights issues. No one would care if you had used slaves 50 years ago. The problem is that you’re doing it NOW.
