Wow…thanks for the history lesson. That was interesting. I never knew all of that! I just never knew there was so much violence coming out of the Netherlands.

America is very focused on the British and their Empire as we are an extension of that.

But yes, I vaguely recall that the Dutch colonized South Africa — and therefore are responsible for Apartheid, which is the same as America’s racism. Which is quite brutal.

Riddle me this: why is it when you go out with someone “Dutch” it is slang that means, you pay your half, (if you’re the woman.)

I have no problem with going Dutch, I just wonder why we say that. Does it have anything to do with the way the Dutch date? Is that how they do it? Just curious.
