That explains your attitude. You are over-integrating...
Been here since 2001. I'm not sure my wife would agree with you (I'm in a Verien now at least )

Plus, coming from the UK, I'm totally used to hearing about what the Brits did during the slave trade. If I had never left the UK and another English man tried to tell me that Golliwogs on my marmalade are totally fine and the slaves only had themselves to blame, I'd give a similar response to what I've given here.

I have the feeling that a lot of the groans I've received are because some here are not yet used to having their country associated with the slave trade. It does take some getting used to.
