WHITE GUILT IS DEAD Free at last, free at last!
By Tom Adkins
Look at my fellow conservatives! There they go, glumly shuffling along, depressed by the election aftermath. Not me. I'm virtually euphoric.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not thrilled with America's flirtation with neo-socialism. But there's a massive silver lining in those magical clouds that lofted Barack Obama to the Presidency. For today, without a shred of intellectually legitimate opposition, I can loudly proclaim to America: The Era of White Guilt is over.
This seemingly impossible event occurred because the vast majority of white Americans didn't give a fluff about skin color, and enthusiastically pulled the voting lever for a black man. Not just any black man. A very liberal black man who spent his early career race-hustling banks, praying in a racist church for 20 years, and actively worked with America-hating domestic terrorists. Wow! Some resume! Yet they made Barack Obama their leader. Therefore, as of November 4th, 2008, white guilt is dead.
For over a century, the millstone of white guilt hung around our necks, retribution for slave-owning predecessors. In the 60s, American liberals began yanking that millstone while sticking a fork in the eye of black Americans, exacerbating the racial divide to extort a socialist solution. But if a black man can become President, exactly what significant barrier is left? The election of Barack Obama absolutely destroys the entire validation of liberal white guilt. The dragon is hereby slain.
So today, I'm feeling a little "uppity," if you will. From this day forward, my tolerance level for having my skin color hustled is now exactly ZERO. And it's time to clean house. No more Reverend Wright's "God Damn America," Al Sharpton's Church of Perpetual Victimization, or Jesse Jackson's rainbow racism. Cornell West? You're a fraud. Go home. All those "black studies" programs that taught kids to hate whitey? You must now thank Whitey. And I want that on the final.
Congressional Black Caucus? Irrelevant. Maxine Waters? Shut up. ACORN? Outlawed. Black Panthers? Go home and pet your kitty. Black separatists? Find another nation that offers better dreams. Go ahead. I'm waiting.
Gangsta rappers? Start praising America. Begin with the Pledge of Allegiance. And please, no more ebonics. Speak English, and who knows where you might end up? Oh, yeah, pull up your pants. Your underwear is showing. You look stupid.
Black Fraternities? Seek diversity. Race Card? Its now the joker. Miss Black America? Get in line with all the other lovely ladies. Reparations? Paid.
To those Eurosnots who forged entire careers hating America? I'm still waiting for the first black French President.
And let me offer an equal opportunity whupping. I've always despised lazy white people. Now, I can talk smack about lazy black people. You're poor because you quit school, did drugs, had three kids with three different fathers, and refuse to work. So when you plop your Colt 45-swilling, Oprah watchin' butt on the couch and complain Da Man is keepin me down!!! allow me to inform you: Da Man is now black. You have no excuses.
No more quotas. No more handouts. No more stealing my money because someone's great-great-great-great grandparents suffered actual pain and misery at the hands of people I have no relation to, and personally revile.
It's time to toss that massive, obsolete race-hustle machine upon the heap of the other stupid 60s ideas. Drag it over there, by wife swapping, next to dope-smoking. Plenty of room right between free love and cop-killing. Careful, don't trip on streaking. There ya go, don't be gentle. Just dump it. Wash your hands. It's filthy.
In fact, Obama's ascension created a gargantuan irony. How can you sell class envy and American unfairness when you and your black wife went to Ivy League schools, got high-paying jobs, became millionaires, bought a mansion, and got elected President? How unfair is that??? Now, Like a delicious O'Henry tale, Obama's spread-the-wealth campaign rendered itself moot by it's own victory! America is officially a meritocracy. Obama's election has validated American conservatism!
So, listen carefully Wham!!!
That's the sound of my foot kicking the door shut on the era of white guilt. The rites have been muttered, the carcass lowered, dirt shoveled, and tombstone erected. White guilt is dead and buried.
However, despite my glee, there's apparently one small, rabid bastion of American racism remaining. Black Americans voted 96% for Barack Obama. Hmmm. In a color-blind world, shouldn't that be 50-50? Tonight, every black person should ask forgiveness for their apparent racism and prejudice towards white people. Maybe it's time to start spreading that guilt around.

I never had it.
This isn’t even funny.
“White guilt is dead and buried.”
Not until you’ve paid your reparations to jesse jacker and rev. sharpie. And it will never be enough.
It’ll only be dead when their hands are broken from signing all their reparation checks.
But white-guilt will live on among the progressive, elite sophisticates infesting the LeftMedia.
Can we hope that Black Racism will take a hit as well, when their Messiah fails to utterly trnsform their lives as they expect?
Do you know what is weird. If you go back and look at old Electoral College maps, the nation is back to divided along the same lines when it comes to elections. The partys flipped in the 60s. The Dems took the north and Republicans took the south.
And I agree with him.
Not that the race pimps will likely ever just STFU, but they'll sound even sillier now.
There are NO silver linings to a BO POTUS a##clown. How he can be “euphoric is beyond me, but I’ll have what he’s having.
Was this really in the Philadelphia Inquirer? If so, this fellow will need a bodyguard.
The comments were quite funny, you were lambasted by a good many kool-aid sippers. Still, besides the word “racism” never really being defined, if it were where is this massive amount of “racism” we are constantly being told of?
Interesting, there's evidence to suggest that some of them thought Sarah Palin was Obama's running mate. Wow...if you don't care enough to know who you're voting for, perhaps you shouldn't have the right to vote at all.
Well then he’s dreaming.
The white guilt business is about to go into overdrive like you’ve never seen.
So when you plop your butt on the couch and complain Da Man is keepin me down!!! allow me to inform you: Da Man is now black.
(slight change) Thanks. That made me laugh!
Dam. Talk about bringing the truth to the table. Your exactly right about conservatism bringing a black man to be president. If it wasn’t for Abe Lincoln Obama would be doing my laundry. The racism wont end, I think it will just get worse, and it has already. The proud and arrogant black community has the most dangerous weapon at the very top now, and will give them even more slack than they had under the “first black president”. I have black conservative friends that voted for Mccain, but now that Obama got elected they have totally forgot about their conservative views and have blindly fallen in love with the black man that will destroy us all.
Anyone that voted for The One needs to be made to feel Obama Guilt.
I have a friend who grew up outside of D.C.. He has a very “black” way of speaking due to his going to a 90% black school. I was driving back from visiting him when I saw a police officer pulling a motorist over.
I thought, in my friends voice “Its just ‘the Man’ keeping ‘the Brother’ down.” So I looked and it was a black police officer pulling over a white motorist.
When I told my friend the story his answer was priceless.
“Color don’t matter, either way it’s still ‘The Man’ keeping ‘the Brother’ down.”
Now “the Man” is a “brother”. ;)
Next up- white guilt for Hispanics 2016!
It ain’t dead. It’s just restin’ after a long squawk.
“This seemingly impossible event occurred because the vast majority of white Americans didn’t give a fluff about skin color, and enthusiastically pulled the voting lever for a black man.

I wish it were so. I fear this new administration will survive because of it. They got elected because of it.
In his victory speech Tuesday night, Obama said, “If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible ... tonight is your answer. It’s been a long time coming, but tonight ... change has come to America. This victory alone is not the change we seek. It is only the chance for us to make that change.”
Obama approached this campaign as if he had been steeped in the effluent of radical Socialism, racism and anti-American sentiments since birth. He did what modern liberals do best: foment discontent, anger, division, greed, victimization ... you know the routine.
The next commander in chief, he has no intention of honoring his presidential oath to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”
It is, however, not often mentioned that it was during three Republican administrations of Ronald Reagan, George H. Bush and George W. Bush that Colin Powell was appointed the first African American National Security Adviser, the first African American Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the first African American Secretary of State. He was succeeded at State by a fellow African American, Condoleezza Rice, also under a Republican administration. It is not always borne in mind that Abraham Lincoln, who fought a successful war over slavery abolition, was Republican, just like Fredrick Douglas, the first black to seek presidential nomination.
My prediction-—by the time all this is said and done, Obama will set race relations back 40 years.
Suitable for framing - thanks!
If Obama gets a pass on his Bill Ayers association because ‘he was only 8 years old’, why shouldn’t I get a pass for slavery because my *parents* weren’t even born yet...
White guilt isn’t dead.
It’s just beginning.
They’ll get no traction from this man.
If Obama gets a pass on his Bill Ayers association because he was only 8 years old, why shouldnt I get a pass for slavery because my *parents* werent even born yet...
“BINGO/YATZEE/JUMANGI/ all at the same time.
I disagree. He's definitely going to do a whole lot of things that I'm not going to like, but I keep reminding myself how absolutely, terminally, and unreservedly depressed I was over the apparently inescapable Hillary presidency.
This Presidency will suck at times, (Certainly Bush's did with Medicare drug benefits and McCain/Feingold's passage) but we'll live through it and grow stronger, just like we did Clinton. The "Oh woe upon us" moaning and hysterical doomsaying I read here is not a whit different than what I heard and read when Bill got elected.
Yet we lived through that just fine, thank you, and got a Conservative revolution out of the deal. We will this time too. Hillary is officially defanged and we get the added bonus of having a new stick to poke in the eye of the race hustlers and European America bashers.
All in all I'm pretty upbeat.
The Democrats better be careful sooner or later they are going to have two groups of social conservatives being big blocks in their party. Look at prop-8 in california.
African Americans and Hispanics tend to be socially center-right and eventually thats going to mean infighting..
It does give an opportunity for snappy comebacks.
"I just a White man in a Black man's world."
"I don't have the complexion to make the connection."
"I am tired of being hassled by the man."
"He was dead when I got there."........
“Obama will set race relations back 40 years.”
Make that 140 years. He has the potential for making race riots.
But first, reparations. Can’t retire guilt without the real payoff.
Wow, so blacks have achieved, at least in part, the color-blindness that Dr. King spoke of:
1. The Man is neither black nor white, or any other color - The Man has no color or creed (Dr. King is pleased).
2. Brothers are black people that aren’t The Man.
3. The Man is everyone that isn’t a Brother.
4. Brothers are men, not women. Black women are Sisters, unless they too become The Man, in which case they aren’t Sisters any more. (See rule 7)
5. Boys don’t exist among blacks - at all. Black boys are Brothers. Calling any black male a Boy is, well, taking your life in your own hands. Distinguishing between the Adult Brother and the Child Brother should be handled with discretion. ‘Son’ is an acceptable appellation for the child version of Brothers, now that we are ‘AB’ (After Barak). In ‘BB’, it was best to just not make a distinction.
6. Black conservatives are referred to as ‘Uncle Tom’, and are blood relatives of The Man. Black conservatives are stripped of all cultural priveleges of Brotherhood. (Michael Steele, Walter Williams, and Alan Keyes)
7. If The Man is black, and leaves elected office, then after a grace period of six months, and the endorsement of a prominent unelected black liberal democrat, then they can be reinstated as Brothers. (See Colin Powell)
8. Dissent will not be tolerated. Brothers caught in the act of the public criticism of Brotherhood are excommunicated (See Bill Cosby).
9. God is recognized by the Brotherhood, but only for the purposes of providing venues for political fundraising and promotion, and for providing an inspiration for a genre of American music. Brothers freed themselves from slavery, and Abe Lincoln is still The Man. God had nothing to do with it.
That’s a messy sort of Venn diagram to try and draw, but I think that sums it up nicely. If you follow these handy rules, then you’ll be able to navigate any number of spurious, but catastrophic racial discrimination litigation brought on by any of your African American employees in the age ‘AB’.
“The Era of White Guilt is over.”
Well darn, I must have missed it. Will it be out on DVD rentals soon?
Does anyone truely believe the race hustlers & poverty pimps are going to change their schtick?
That white guilt ridden liberals are going to stop being guilt ridden now?
Please......its only going to morph into something else. My bet is financial reperations for decendants of slaves and massive expansion of tribal status for every 3rd world immigrant groups and indigious groups. I bet the hawaiians grifter groups will demand sovereign status meaning all kinds of new handouts and landgrabs and Obama will push for it.
Very useful information! Thanks! ;)
The politically-correct, racist BLACKmail is over.
When I went to college in France, I would get all this "How badly you Americans treat the Indians, the blacks!" And I would respond thoughtfully with humility and admit America has had failings along the way, and I'd point out how the French treat the Arabs (at the time there was little terrorism and any Frenchman who had even been BORN in North Africa was pejoratively called a "Pieds Noir").
The French student would invariably wrinkle his or her nose and say "But that is different! They are ARABS." (Rest my case.)
“but we’ll live through it”
not all once terrorists get the nuclear bomb
Don't get me wrong. I'm not thrilled with America's flirtation with neo-socialism. But there's a massive silver lining in those magical clouds that lofted Barack Obama to the Presidency. For today, without a shred of intellectually legitimate opposition, I can loudly proclaim to America: The Era of White Guilt is over...
Wow...for no small reason are we called the Stupid Party.
Nothing is going to cater to you "meritorcrats", and the amount of subsuidies your kids will pay will be staggering
Problem is, you opened the door and now they are going to ram "privelige" down your throat until you choke.
not all once terrorists get the nuclear bomb
Oh, right, good point, because we've done such a phenomenal job of checking Iran's nuclear ambition up to now...
Me neither. I never owned anyone.
I agree with your post entirely, the only way “white guilt” will ever be dead, is if enough sorry whites stop accepting and even seeking the guilt. I don’t know if it will ever happen now, too many whites have been too thoroughly indoctrinated and intimidated by society and by this sorry-azz government into either just shutting up or trying to “finesse” the situation by always qualifying their lack of a total guilt complex. The only way we will ever stop it is when we demand that people meet on a truly level playing field of pure merit, and there’s plenty of reasons why that will never happen. There are still fields in life in which you can’t bluff it.
