Guilt Free White Man
I feel no guilt over slavery, as it was not the white man who started it or even continue it yet today.
I feel no guilt over slavery, as the white man has worked hard to end it.
I feel no guilt over the short history of slavery in the USA, as there has not been any here for a very long time, and no one alive was either a slave or a slave owner.
I feel no guilt over prejudices, as all races of people accept and are influenced by prejudices. I control only that which is in my own conscience.
I feel no guilt when as a young man in college in a southern po-dunk town, the police would stop and watch me, but only when I was walking with my black friend. It was not me who was doing the profiling.
I feel no guilt over the portrayals of stereotypes of the various races of people that you see on TV, whether that portrayal is one of white people (as wealthy self-absorbed drama queens), black people (as angry, mouth wided-open animals), asian (as submissive yet intrinsically intelligent), latino (as lazy and uncivilized), or the indigenous indians (as TP dwellers, smoking pipes and recalling stories of the glory days). I feel no guilt over this, as I make the effort not to be influenced by what the media and modern music portrays people as.
I feel no guilt over being annoyed at those people who DO fall for hype, for I am not the white person who buys the media stereotype because they see *some* black people who also fall for the stereotypes and media hype, who walk around all angry and victimized, and then as a nonthinking white person, attribute that media nonsense to ALL black people.
I feel no guilt over my hires and the make up of the people around me at the workplace, for I’ve treated everyone equally. I can be just as annoyed with someone regardless of the color of their skin or their gender, just like I can appreciate work ethic that rises to my standard, again, regardless of who they are.
I feel no guilt over my religious beliefs.
I feel no guilt for believing that the liberal propaganda that only white people can be racist, is full tilt BS.
I feel no guilt for believing that the recent rash in various cities around the country of flash mob attacks on white people by mobs of black youths is cowardly, injustice, and bona-fide hate crimes.I further feel no guilt for believing that this is the result of the liberal agenda, coupled with irresponsible journalism and media programing, and that more than likely, the youths are getting their heads filled with messages of hate from music, media, and at home.
I feel no guilt over believing that anyone, regardless of skin color, who attack others violently over racial hatred, should be caught, charged with a hate crime, and “spanked” hard for their offense, regardless of their excuses, and regardless of whether they are white, black, brown, or purple.
Finally, I will feel no guilt for asking my black son to do chores around the house – they were good enough for me to be asked to do by my loving and caring parents, they will be good enough for him to do too. And I won’t feel the least bit of guilt for not taking any lip from him over having to do chores. The character of a man, regardless of his skin color, is molded by the expectations others put before him, and then chosen by him as being that which will *be* him.
I know the character of the man my parents raised, and I feel no guilt over my chosen self.
