Video.. Rep. Steve King: What Other 'Subgroup' Gave More To Civilization Than White People…

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) on Monday challenged the other participants on an MSNBC panel to name a "subgroup" that contributed more to civilization than white people.

That smoking hot take came moments after Esquire writer Charles Pierce declared that the 2016 Republican National Convention would be the last time "old white people" would command the attention of the Republican Party.

"This whole business does get a little tired, Charlie," King said. "I would ask you to go back through history and figure out where are these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people that you are talking about, where did any other subgroup of people contribute more to civilization?"

"Than white people?" MSNBC host Chris Hayes interjected.

"Than—than western civilization itself that's rooted in western Europe, eastern Europe and the United States of America, and every place where christianity settled the world," King said. "That's all of western civilization."

"But what about Africa, what about Asia?" reporter April Ryan asked.

Everyone on the panel then began furiously speaking over each other.

"We are not going to argue the history of civilization," Hayes said, trying to get the segment back on track.

"Let's argue the history of this country, okay?" Ryan said.

    Who cares though? Squabbling over which race or nationality invented what is looking backwards.

    One thing white people have and will never deal with is people in power that absolutely hate them.

    Probably won't ever happen, but if Black and the ever growing Hispanic population worked together even more would get done.

    European Non-Hispanic Whites will eventually be the minority if not in our lifetime our kids lifetime.

    White people need to be taught history for real. That's part of the problem. For too long they've been allowed to pass on the false narrative that they did everything. I think white people would have more respect for other cultures if they understood that outside of Greece and Rome, Europe was irrelevant for most of human history.


    What they mean is that through imperalism and colonialism they conquered the globe....

    It is grounded in the philosophy of Lothrop Stoddard. ....

    Romans and Greeks mixed with other people before becoming an empire. Its ridiculous for them to grab everything.

    It's text book white supremacy

    Much like how detrimental it is on a sub-conscious level having the "son of God" have white skin,blue eyes etc.etc.

    History is very important to a cultures self esteem and the kinds of people it produces with be a direct reflection of that cultural pride in the achievement of the past,

    That doesn't change what I said. Europeans did a lot and @zzombie said, they made the modern world what it is, but what they did was built off foundations set by other groups and much of what they did would have failed if not for the voluntary and involuntary contributions of other groups.

    I never said they didn't. .....
