Are you Tobias Hübinette, by any chance?

I am Welsh. We never invaded anyone's land or tried to  ...

Well technically yea you did as full active members of Britain.. its empire, its military, government, civil service, business leaders, parliament etc.... oh and of course exporting people to N. America, S. America, Australia and N. Zealand as colonists. Anyway the English are not a race, just the descendents of the people who met in the middle of Britain from the rest of Britain and Europe and had babies with each other.

... i guess the Welsh specifically didn't invade any other parts of the British isles. Though the Scots have invaded England a fair few times before joining them.

The Celts were there long before the Anglo-Saxons, so any actions by the Scots or Welsh were attempts to reclaim land taken by the Anglos. :-)

But, yes, I see your point. I know Welsh were involved in the Zulu wars as part of the Royal Army (the Royal Welsh Fusiliers were pivotal in that battle, not just in combat but in convincing the Zulus that the Welsh were worthy warriors and then the Zulus stopped their attack).

The point I was trying to make is that one cannot simply group all "whites" together. There are numerous different cultures and people groups. Also, you can't even group all people from one ethnicity together.
