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!
