Early 20th Century Urban USA

Many HBDers have a child-like belief that the USA (and other western countries) were places of prosperity, decent urban planning and social equity until “those non-whites” came along.

Have a look at their mythical utopia, from the “good old days”. Isn’t unregulated capitalism grand?

    Generally anytime a society within a modern civilization is fucked up, the common thread is matriarchy, not race (lots of single-mom homes and men who emulate the conflict resolution skills of women).

    But it is so much easier to create straw men, than acknowledge that.

    Those cities may not have been pristine, but they were still a lot more advanced and prosperous than their counterparts in Africa, South Asia, and Latin America.

    You can tell the difference? Oh, wait… but of course, the people living in those shitty slums were white and therefore the slums can’t be “that” shitty.

    What’s the difference between American and European travelers of the 18th century and those of the 19th century. Those of the 18th century acknowledged that the Asian and African cities that they visited were not that different from their cities except for architecture. For them the only thing was lacking with Easterners was Christianity.

    Those of the 19th century did not live in better conditions, but still they thought that their shit was better the shit of Asians and Africans. Something happened at the end of the 18th century that generated this whole white supremacist attitude.

        So what?! The industrial revolution reached the world in the 19th century. Asians and Africans acquired and learned the new technologies.

        I’m not sure why some Polish wants to take credit for what an Englishmen did in the 18th century just because they both live on the same continent?

    Italians, Eastern Europeans…third world immigrants…what’s the difference between the twain?

    19th century emmigration of the lesser-European races produced these slums.

    ^ How come they (ex. italians) no longer live in slums in America?

    they were integrated and deracinated a process that takes long for peoples of wholly non-European extraction.
