“White guilt” is nothing more than a form of survivor guilt, a mental condition that occurs when a person believes they have done something wrong by surviving a traumatic or tragic event when others did not, often feeling self-guilt.
When the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders IV (DSM-IV) was published, survivor guilt was removed as a recognized specific diagnosis, and redefined as a significant symptom of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The bottom line is that when it comes to politics and the actions of government, how people “feel” DOES NOT MATTER.
All that matters is what’s REAL.
While I certainly sympathize with people growing up under any state of affairs — including the color of their skin — which may have adversely affected their ability to achieve their goals, I personally know a number of people who grew up under various states of affairs — including the color of their skin — which may have adversely affected their ability to achieve their goals but who have nevertheless gone on to significantly greater achievements than I ever did or even could.
White guilt constitutes absolutely ZERO basis for political decision-making, and reparations FIVE GENERATIONS REMOVED is an abominable and heinous insult to the integrity of humankind.
All those who continue to demand, support or grant reparations for something which occurred 155 years ago are committing a CRIME. It’s EXTORTION. They’re no better than STREET THUGS.
Extorting money from people of one color — or all colors — only to give it to only those of a particular color It’s RACISM.
We the People of ALL Colors DO NOT TOLERATE RACISM and WE WILL NOT TOLERATE EXTORTION.
