Of course, most public officials in postcolonial states eschew any public assertion that these violations resulted from colonialism to avoid responsibility for their states' human rights violations. While English colonialists settled in territories more than other colonial empires, English acquisition of colonial territory varied.
Such distinctions have effects, which will be examined below. Consequently, many British colonies have more effectively protected "the rights of Englishmen" and their subjects than have the colonies and post-colonies of France, Spain and Portugal.
By contrast, Haiti is the exemplar of the worst situation where all of the French colonial settlers left the country after the independence, leaving behind mostly the culture of slavery and the repressive institutions used to perpetuate it; even though the ideals of the French revolution had partly inspired the world's only successful slave revolution.

However, the hypothesis that the superior human rights records of English settler colonies is disconfirmed in Sudan, Pakistan, and Nigeria, among others. French settler colonies like Algeria have had even worse violations.
