When you say the "majority of people in this thread" you really mean the minority of people in this thread. By my count there are 6 people in support and 8 opposed and 1 person open to a minor change. I see that you edited your first version calling us a minority of white people from white dominated cultures to "whitesplainers". You love to make personal attacks as you have no real substance to your opinions...
Maybe I should lower myself to your level and accuse you of blacksplaining .
Wow, I rarely find someone this devout in his defense of a system that has kept many, many people of color in poverty, unless I'm dealing with a member of the KKK. And rarely do I see them so obviously racist, usually they've got the common sense to at least pretend that they're living in a free country, not a white country that barely tolerates anything different.
And for someone who's added nothing of substance to this thread, you sure are attacking a lot of others. But nobody's really surprised when people who ask you not to display racist symbols, and suddenly history is 'under attack,' because we all know not depicting slavery on a CC map is going to thrash history somehow magically.
Kotaro do try to debate honestly. Who is "defending a system."? Absolutely nobody! Loutil has been crystal-clear that slavery is despicable.

Slavery is evil, as are many other things humans have done to each other, but retroactively censoring history to pretend they didn't happen is idiotic.
