None of that is opinion, or particularly unknown

It’s an extremely broad statement. Ergo, it’s unprovable without coming up with a rather long laundry list which then has to pass into the category of “there’s no reason to do this other than to keep non-white people down.”

Since keeping non-white countries is counterproductive economically, it stands to logic that no such list exists, and thus what you posted falls into the category of conspiracy theory. The fact that other people, perhaps those which you commonly correspond with, ALSO believe it is neither here or there; at any give time, I can find several thousand people who are sure that aliens built the pyramids.

Didn’t our president just give some banks a pass on fines incurred by fixing global interest rates?

No. He extended waivers to several banks that were previously given waivers by the Obama Administration.

In late 2016, the Obama administration extended temporary one-year waivers to five banks — Citigroup, JPMorgan, Barclays, UBS and Deutsche Bank. Late last month, the Trump administration issued new, longer waivers for those same banks, granting Citigroup, JPMorgan, and Barclays five-year exemptions. UBS and Deutsche Bank received three-year exemptions.

So, this is an example on how a policy can be misinterepreted to mean something other than it does.

It is a fact that the US can create as much money as it wants at a sustainable rate,

Well, that is NOT a fact, otherwise the US would solve its poverty, health care, and entitlement problems by printing up a million for every man, woman, and child. The rate at which debt expands does indeed have limits, and it certainly doesn’t extend to printing up that million for all six billion and change people on teh globe.

and it is also a fact that Nigeria may not, without having their currency devalued on a global market dominated by USD (or Zimbabwe, for historical context)

Yes. This is one of the benefits of having one of the world’s tradeable currencies (there are only FOREX marketmakers in about five or six, those being the Yen, Dollar, Pound Sterling, Swiss Franc, Euro and Remimbi), and especially having the world’s reserve currency. Each of those nations (sans Euro) print-it-up when they need to as well, and Japan has outdone even the US in that regard.

It is not related to skin color in the slightest.
