Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You really like to move the goalposts. But no, "the millions whipped out by the famines due to the incompetence, racism, and indifference of the British" is neither a "mass extermination", nor does it contradict my claim that most of Africa was taken without large-scale butchering, nor is it unparalleled by earlier empires (for example the Mongols in East Europe again, Rome in newly conquered Dacia). As for completely dehumanising enemies, as a way to differentiate from earlier empires, come on! "Barbarian" wasn't a word invented in the last five centuries, nor "slave".
