    The thing is that no one was "posit[ing] that europeans are responsible for all the ills of this world." Throwing up a condescending straw man, responding to a real issue with some over-the-top crap...yep, well...

      It obviously is extremely controversial - each time I've seen it the number of recs and HRs is approximately equal. And in the lengthy thread following it there seems to be a conclusion that it references the history of white (Europeans) violently trampling on the lives of non-whites, at least in this country, and own the violence 100%. So someone was, by many interpretations, positing that europeans are responsible for all the ills of the US if not the world.
