Statistics is a dangerous tool.
In 1600 America North and South was mostly colonised by European Imperialism, Australasia did not exist as far as the then civilised world knew. Africa was being pillaged for profit both of material and human assets.
I am not defending colonialism in any shape or form - it still exists but in a different guise and continues to penalise the poor.
