'White' Ignorance and Arrogance

I am commenting in relation to the type of arrogance and stubbornness displayed by a few persons who claim to be Europeans/Whites on this board who are bent on proselytizing Africans.
I was just listening to a report on BBC today about Russian Skinheads attacking Blacks in Russia. Most people are aware that racism exists in Russia but often when we hear about Russian racism it is normally about attacks on Jews. Rarely do they highlight the attacks on Blacks, some of whom are University students and ordinary workers. They usually publicize the attacks on Jews and they brand this as racism when we know that most Jews in Russia are European Whites. What is subtly being passed on is that White Jews are some separate race of people but that is certainly not the case. Some of the Blacks BBC interviewed cannot wait to finish their term and get out of Russia.
It is instructive that some who claim to be WHITE spend much time trying to save Africans but they do not want to take their 'onelove' campaign to the White communities in Europe where many don't even know that they are all African descendants. I would think that should be their priority as I am sure many Whites would not accept these truths from Africans. As a mater of fact Africans have been explaining this for generations and it is only recently certain Whites in the academic circles are repeating these facts.
While some ‘Whites’ here focus on trying to save Black people they neglect the majority of Whites in the US and Europe who are illiterate and ignorant. Take for example those nightly shows on the television where at times they go out and ask ordinary White Americans simple questions then they laugh at the ignorance of many of these people.
Yes, Africa has problems and Africans are not in denial of this but Europe and the US have many more problems that need addressing and many Whites can best serve our humanity by trying to teach ‘onelove’ within the highly ignorant European community.
They should take a backseat when dealing with Africans who have not been compensated for crimes against humanity. I know that is hard for some Whites to accept, but all the major ills in this world are the product of White ignorance and arrogance, and to a lesser extent the ignorance in other races. But you do not see people who are concerned about developing communities that were disrupted and corrupted by WHITE ARROGANCE, making time to disrupt White communities.
