You were inside.. you thought you were safe... you were wrong... this summer...
I'm curious: was it just the YouTuber who made this (ridiculously untrue) claim, or did ChatGPT recycle it as part of an answer?A youtuber said that white americans are the only people in the history of the planet the left their families behind to fight and die for the freedom of people of another race.
It was just the youtuber, although as i did my own research very little ending of slavery was the result of a war.I'm curious: was it just the YouTuber who made this (ridiculously untrue) claim, or did ChatGPT recycle it as part of an answer?
Huh? Australia was the most racist of all the countires I could find in terms of abolition, they definitely weren't dying to free their slavesPretty much all the countries of Western Europe for starters, in WW1 and again in WW2, with additional contributions from Canada, New Zealand, Australia and a variety of African countries.
Your original comment was that white americans are the only people in the history ... to fight and die for the freedom of people of another raceHow did Australians sacrifice their lives to free slaves of another race?
Wut???So, while other factors such as political corruption, economic crisis, and social inequalities also contributed to the French Revolution, the issue of slavery was certainly a significant aspect of the revolutionary movement.
The way you stated that makes it sounds like it was my words - to be clear for anyone just now tuning in - it's someone elses words about white americans and i am researching to find out if its true or not.Your original comment was that white americans are the only people in the history ... to fight and die for the freedom of people of another race
There's no reference to slavery in that, but there have been plenty of other Caucasians who have dedicated their lives to fighting the injustice done by their colonising cousins in non-Caucasian parts of the world. Given that "white Americans" is a relatively recent concept (all white Americans being descended from northern European migrants), it's quite the leap to award this "only people in history" honour en masse to the same families that were most involved in the exploitation of Africans, Asians and other Europeans only a couple of centuries beforehand - not to forget the wholesale eradication of native Americans. In WW2, the Australians fought for the freedom of various Africans, Asians, Arabs and (other) Europeans.
From the endless examples of AI chat I've seen these last few weeks (not just here - they're everywhere) it's coming across as a strange conflation of carefully curated "truth" and an impressive amount of banal padding - of the kind that's been stuffing up internet search results (and landing pages) for a good few years now. If this is the direction things are going, I don't think our creative writers have anything to fear.
No it wasn't. Slavery barely registered on the radar of the French people in the 1790s. A half-hearted proposal to abolish it in 1789 - the beginning of the French Revolution - was dropped, and in 1790 the concept of slavery as A Good Thing was formally approved by the government of the day.
Over in the West Indies, though, the French colonisers were caught in a difficult position, because both the British and the Spanish had decided to "abolish slavery" so they could undermine the economic viablility of the French plantations there. So the French "abolished slavery" to re-level the playing field. It had nothing whatsoever to do with ordinary French people living in France - many of whom were just as indentured to a wealthy landowner as their non-white equivalents on the other side of the world, but not freed by the 1794 law. Mr/Ms ChatBot needs to go back to school.
In that original statement there was an implication that 'fighting for the freedom' === 'fighting for them to not be slaves' as slavery is the opposite of freedom. That's definitely the context that the statement was made in.
You've posted a couple times now about how its wrong and you have yet to provide a specific example to contradict it?
What race from where? was fighting to free what other race? in what location?
And you even mentioned Australia as a counter example so I'd love to hear specifically how
Exactly.This is where I believe AI chat will stumble in its evolution, with an inherent bias creeping into its responses as it learns only from sources that have been approved by humans with their own inherent biases - a situation akin to the weaknesses and biases described in the use of facial recognition software, or the infamous social media echo-chambers that recycle fake news.
And there you have a great example of the weakness of machine learning: context is everything. You're referring to my comment; my comment referred to your reference to an unidentified YouTuber; the YouTuber made a claim implying that freedom was equivalent to not being a slave. That's layer upon layer of fog and confusion.
As above, my original challenge was to the unidentified YouTuber's implication that only white Americans ever died for someone else's freedom. In your post, there was no reference to slavery. There may have been an implication in the original video that freedom is equivalent to not being a bought-and-sold slave of African origin, but that's not apparent in your reference.
I understood the relevant phrase to mean freedom as in ... freedom, the state of being free, not under the control of someone else. There are many ways in which individuals or groups or whole countries or whole races (define race, while we're at it) are not free, and countless examples of how other individuals or groups or whole countries have gone to great effort to liberate them - or protect them before they lose their freedom.

A youtuber said that white americans are the only people in the history of the planet the left their families behind to fight and die for the freedom of people of another race. That no other country ended slavery the way that america did.
One of the earliest animal fossils that has been identified is Kimberella, a soft-bodied organism that lived around 555 million years ago. Kimberella had some characteristics that suggest it was an early animal, such as a probable method of movement and a ability to feed on other organisms.
No bacteria, animals, plants and fungai are all distinct groups.Yeah, now try and define what is alive? A virus does not eat, it doesn't breathe, it doesn't do anything but reproduce itself. Is it alive? By contrast, bacteria breathe and there are bacteria that eat other bacteria for sustenance. Are bacteria animals?
