I have a problem.

As you can see from my location, I'm from Croatia. I have to admit that I'm somehow ashamed of my Slavic descent.

I have been spending some time reading posts on the forum called Skadi forum, about Germanic superiority over Slavs, even over ancient cultures like the Romans, Greeks, Egyptians etc. They were saying that the reason behind the Roman and Greek success is that the ruling class was comprised of people with blonde hair and blue eyes ruling over the tan skinned population.

People there have been writing that the early Slavs were nothing and would be nothing without the Germanic people ''showing them the way''
like centralizing the population by building cities, bringing in the law and order to already lawless people who can't stop killing each other over petty differences (in modern times Yugoslavia), that they brought us the written language and that we should be thanking them, hence the word Slav-slave comes from that (everyone could rule over us, everyone could suppress us, we would often fight as cannon fodder for other empires and all that).

The other thing they've said is that we are somehow mongrelized people with Asians, mainly Mongols and Huns because of their invasions from the East, so because of that we should not be considered European, even white, that we should be ''left out'' from the Indo-European branch. Then there was that we didn't invent anything, and something that we did invent was copy pasted from Germanic people. Because of that I started to feel very unworthy, more like worthless.
Then I started doing some research about the Slavs, and truly we were nothing special in the past, not even now. But I know that I can't escape my Slavic descent and jump overboard being Anglo-Saxon or Norse.

On Youtube I see countless comments about us, we are mainly the laughing stock of the world, and every time I get into a fight with someone from Western Europe, he simply wins an argument by saying his country's GDP and something glorious about his country's past,calling my country a shithole and that's the end.
Is it really true that we are so low and uncompromising as people? How do I escape my shame? Plus I'm always so afraid that the Germanic countries will ''turn'' somehow against us.
