What are the thoughts of the marble from which a sculptor shapes a masterpiece? It thinks: I am being struck, ruined, insulted, and broken, I am lost. This marble is stupid. Life is shaping me. It is making a masterpiece. I must bear its blows without understanding them. I must stand firm. I must be still and accept the inevitable. I must help and bear my part, till the work is ended. 
—Orphée, Jean Cocteau

This blog is about the many innovations, inventions, creations and discoveries made by white people throughout history.

This isn't about hate, violence or racial supremacy. I love my people and I hope you love yours.

That said, if you say moronic things that can be proved wrong in 3 minutes on bing, don't expect to be handled with kid gloves.

NOTE: I'm not updating this blog very much at the moment. I have enough posts queued up to keep it running for the next couple of years, but I don't log in or check it regularly. Feel free to browse the archives though if you want answers to some questions.
