“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.

Nicely done.

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.

It's not my sense that the author intended humor.

And I agree with him.

Not that the race pimps will likely ever just STFU, but they'll sound even sillier now.

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?

Black Americans voted 96% for Barack Obama.

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.

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.

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”. ;)

"White Guilt Is Dead"

No, it's not.

No one actually thinks that Jesse, Al, and the crowd are going to relinquish their hold on America's white balls because we have a black president, do they?

At the outset of this race, when obama won the primary, Jesse was railing about how he wasn't a "real black" because he didn't have any "slave blood" in him - whatever the hell that means.

Later, Jesse said something about releiving obama of one of his body parts .

The NAACP and the Black Caucus are not going to abandon their stations in life just to honor obama. The "race card" is their power, and it is alive and well, and will continue to be played so long is there is one white person at a station in life perceived to be above any single black person. Remember the rules folks, "blacks can't be racists, only whites".

I hope the guy who wrote this article doesn't think that 100 years of black rage against (extinct) slave owners is going to die out any time soon...re-directed maybe, but that rage isn't going away. Rage is power!

Just because the black king has been moved to the checkmate position doesn't mean the black knights, bishops, and pawns won't be vying for a better position on the board.

Forrest Gump said "Stupid is as stupid does"...and I think that applies to every white person harboring guilt over slavery who didn't own a slave.

White Guilt is over

That assumes there was something to be guilty of.

Just as there is no "blood libel", there is nothing a white man alive today has to be guilty of.

“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.”

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.

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 am tired of being hassled by the man."
"He was dead when I got there."........

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’.

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.

I'm still waiting for the first black French President.

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.)

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...

Wow...for no small reason are we called the Stupid Party.

You havent even begun to pay for the sins of the past. Your tax obligations are going to go up by 50 % and you'll be lucky to qualify for a government job , much less own a small businees without being strangled by regulation and tax

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.

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.

From his own mouth, there we are. The race card isn't even close to being discarded from the deck, too much "redistribution" still to be done, that card will still come in plenty handy in helping to effect it. What people can't earn, they must either take by force or by coercion, and false guilt is an effective form of coercion, when they "guiltee" is stupid enough to accept the guilt.
