Right White Ninja, Black China, Latino Chino. Oriental Honorary Whites. Just like "White" males. Dont you have Ethnicities. The English-Jew, Rewriting the Bible..The New King James Version of The Bible. The US Consatitution is written on Korean Paper and Ink, the only Paper and Ink in History. And was written IN Korea.

    I'm a history buff and I'm a huge fan worrying about the wars and how they were fought in world history... napoleons Bonaparte to be countries that teamed up against him not just winning one time winning for times of the coalition.. you must be a truly badass military commander.... and thank you oversimplify for all the hard work you put on these videos and I do really appreciate it and it makes me want to learn about Napoleon Bonaparte and the history of france... I'm from America and I love this country very very much ever since I came when I was a baby from Portugal.. during America's Revolution, we ordering our own country it's not for Francis ASA sending more troops and supplies so thank you friends for that and also thank you Napoleon Bonaparte for the Louisiana Purchase.. America always had a plan to extend their country from the East to the West Coast and if we didn't buy Louisiana Purchase that I still think we'll still be a half of a country now so thank you friends and thank you for the Statue of Liberty... Vive La France!!!

    Funny & informative as usual 💖! Ironically, the expansion & collision of nations may have contributed to the sustainability of civilization. Resource depletion or disparity was “externalized” and infirm like me or outdated policies were selected in colonial development or war. However, it is risky, costly, even catastrophic now. I hope we can achieve environmental, economic, social (including human), & political sustainability with new techs & humane policies.
