Research your history, Kristina. White people have not always been the oppressors – for one thing, white ‘people’ are not a ‘people’ except in the U.S. any more than black ‘people’ are any where except the U.S. Even here I would say there are some serious divisions in culture that have nothing to do with color. The number of different peoples throughout human history that have oppressed other peoples is infinite – and usually, the peoples within a ‘color’ (as if such a categorical description can ever be accurate!) oppress each other before moving on to other peoples. If you study ancient history to modern history – even a very brief overview – you will discover that every people has been the oppressor at one time or another. And you know what? Who cares? You’re not the oppressor, presumably, and neither am I, so neither of us has anything to apologize for.
