If the world was raped by the Europeans during the 500 years leading up to WW II, America is the dysfunctional spawn that most resembles daddy. Comparisons between the two are no more or less valuable than comparisons between any estranged but speaking father and son. White America never had the luxury of an option to cleanse its blood. Europe may have once had the opportunity to cleanse but I'll bet that ship sailed for Daddy after 1950. When momma's little bastards do reach the stars, I imagine most of them will be varying shades of brown.
