White Privilege, what is it? It is something awful and terrible that the White Race achieved after their millennia conquests? It’s something racist, real, tangible, something about which any white should be ashamed of himself? If you really studied History then you as white have got nothing to be ashamed. If you are a white and you act as a white then you have to be proud of yourself.

The most common Marxist propaganda in this can be found in their abject historical discussions on Colonialism. On the “exploitation of resources” of the African continent, on how “Whites” reduced the Black African to being “poor”.

Above all else, the Africans today, to justify their invasion, reaffirm this not as an opinion but as a fact … Accusing us of being the barbarian invaders of their continent and of how we have been and are the cause of their “bad“conditions.

Given that this version for them is a fact and not an opinion we expect them to provide a concrete case of all these abominable torments inflicted by us whites to the blacks. There is no solid evidence that proves most of the history we are taught of the White Europeans is true. In fact, most of what we are taught is extremely hyperbolic or completely false.

There should be NO apologies for being White, for being superior, for having what the third world never had, it’s not a fault to be born white, it’s not a privilege, to rule is not a privilege it’s a burden and we ruled in History for being white, what we have today, what our ancestors built, is due to the fact that they were whites. Western Worlds are White and we can’t be ashamed of what we achieved and will achieve.

In this optic, We actually have “a fact” and not an opinion and we are sure that this “will alleviate the pain that is ruining through you since you were children, the vulgar sense of guilt …”

.. Carusi … the guilt …

Carusi is the Sicilian term for “boy” and derives from the Latin carus which means “dear”. In the mid-1800s and up until the early 1900s in Sicily, the term Carusi was used to refer to a worker in a sulfur or salt quarry, who worked alongside a Picuneri or a man-gatherer, carrying the ore from the depths of the mine up to the surface.

These Carusi generally worked in slavery, foundlings or often abandoned by their families because they could not feed them or even by their own families for a death benefit (ie a large outstanding debt), which actually made them property of the pickaxe or the same mine owners. Often “recruited” at the age of just 5-7 years of age, and once so burdened, many lived their entire lives as Carusi, not only working in the mines, but eating and sleeping in the same or in their vicinity. A parent or orphanage could redeem them by paying the death benefit, but in that poor Sicily of the time, this was a rare, very rare event.

The conditions of the Carusis have been described by two politicians from continental Italy, Leopoldo Franchetti and Sidney Sonnino who traveled to Sicily in 1876 to conduct an unofficial investigation into the state of Sicilian society.

“Children work underground 8 to 10 hours a day, they must perform a specific number of trips, in order to carry out a certain number of loads from the excavation, to the tunnel and up to the outdoor collection point. The load varies depending on the age and strength of the boy, but it is always much heavier than a creature of such a young age and can usually create serious damage to health up to the risk of mutilation. Unbelievable that younger children carry weights from 25 to 30 kilos on their shoulders, and those from sixteen to eighteen to seventy and eighty kilos. … ”

As a result, the minimum age was increased to 10 years by government decree in 1876. In 1905 the minimum age was raised to 14 and in 1934 to 16 (under the fascist pigs). The law was not rigidly applied, however.

“The horrible conditions in the Sicilian sulfur mines prompted Booker T. Washington – himself an African American born slave – to write in 1910:

I’m not ready just now to say to what extent I believe in a physical hell in the world to come, but a sulfur mine in Sicily is surely the closest thing to hell I expect to see in this life. ”

“From this slavery there is no hope of freedom, because neither parents nor son can ever have enough money to repay the original loan. […]
The cruelties to which the child slaves have been subjected, as reported by those who have studied them, are so bad a lot more than that which has always been referred to the cruelty of the slavery of the Negroes. These slaves-boys were often beaten and pinched, in order to tear from their overburdened bodies the last drop of strength they had in them. When the beatings were not enough, it was the custom to burn their calves of the legs with the lanterns in order to put them back on their feet. If they try to escape from this slavery, they are captured and beaten, sometimes even killed … ”

British physicist Sir Thomas Oliver visited the mines at Lercara Friddi in 1910 and described working conditions in the British Medical Journal:

“The mineral obtained by men is transported on the shoulders of the boys who, with bare feet, climb up steep stairs trying to gain the surface. The tunnels of the mines are not always illuminated so the journeys up and down are made in the dark. Many are the sad incidents that have taken place due to the slips in the ascents. The boys and their cargo fall down the stairs, entangling themselves in their mad fall with other carusi as a domino effect.

Adding to this is that the “habitat” inside the mines was something abysmally infernal: sulfurous fumes, hot temperatures, low oxygen.

Working conditions are very bad and cause physical and moral degradation. Illiterates without schooling, often abused and also with crooked hips and deformed knees due to the transport of heavy loads. Partial or complete loss of vision was not uncommon among miners as a result of eye injuries. Sir Oliver was “struck by the short stature and faulty development of the children” who carry the mineral on their shoulders. “Some of the men I measured, even though they were 30 years old or older, were only 1.20m tall, and in mental development they were nothing more than children,” he also remarked: “So short of stature it is these men, and so physically deformed, that the government can hardly get in these sulfur mines of conscripts to be drafted into the army. ”

The consequences of inhumane working conditions have continued for the rest of the lives of many Carusis, According to Oliver:

“In addition to children, the transport of the mineral is also done by men who started their lives in mines like Carusi, and as a result of having for years loaded the mineral on their shoulders, they have a large hump on their back, a curved spine, the deformed lower extremities, and a distorted rib cage … ”

The sulfur-mining town of Lercara Friddi, for example, has been dubbed the “city of humpback whales” (u paisi di jmmuruti) from the surrounding municipalities.
