What a racist chart/table.
What greed, eh?

Who found “Denser than Grain, Rok Hard Stupid”?
No Muslim countries? What are you talking about? Sweden is quite prominent.
It’s because white male chauvinists have a misguided worship of individual rights and ideas of property ownership. An inclusive culture worships mother gaia and so people of color have a more nuanced, holistic outlook that doesn’t discriminate between elements. /s
