The Myth of the White Man’s Guilt

By R. C. Seely

We have all been ingrained with the perspective that we should feel that we have wronged all the different ethnic groups. The evidence says something different from this though.

According to the Native Americans our ancestors forcibly drove them from their lands. The warriors of the tribes fought bravely to the end, but in the war parties, men, women and children of the white race were viciously murdered. Both sides had massive losses and killed innocent people. Should their modern descendents be held accountable for their actions?

The African Americans of this country were brought in as slaves by the Colonists. The slave trade was created by the other African tribes NOT by the white man. They would still be in Africa, engaged in civil war if not for the trade. Besides our founders were not comfortable with the practice and was looking to outlaw it from the get-go. Another point for consideration, what percentage of biological African heritage does someone need to have to claim racial sufferings. In other words at want point does your ancestry count you as ‘Black.’ There were a lot of rapes done by the slave masters, but escaped slaves attacked white women in retribution for their masters actions. So many whites could have some black blood. Do the escaped slaves descendents feel guilty for these acts of incivility?

The Mexican community claim entitlement of land because the ‘White Man,’ chased them off it. Actually it was the Spanish and Native Americans that did the worse atrocities to the tribes of Latin America, than the Europeans. Many of the Mexican people alive today are from the conquistadors, not the Mexicana tribe which has the biological line has gone extinct. This land was BOUGHT from Mexico, not taken from them. Don’t the Mexican people feel guilty for spreading this myth?

The Chinese were brought in for slave labor during the days of the railroads. They were the houseboys along side the black slaves. They have had to suffer stereotypes as well as the other races. China has become one the most powerful countries in the world. Why don’t they scream out for entitlements?

Many Pagans had been killed by the Christians during the Catholic Reformation. With the exception of a few most are willing to live with the Christians in peace. The atheists and Christians, both feel that those who disagree with them are simple and wrong. Where’s the Pagan’s attitude of piety?

Social Activists want everything paid for by taxes, not caring that by using tax money, citizens might be supporting something that they find objectionable. How do they justify their anger?

Jews are a demographic that has been demonized and mistreated far worse that any other and they don’t ask for any preferential treatment. Why don’t they feel more entitled for the acts of atrocities by the descendents of Germany?

The American patriot who has to listen to all the contention, accusations and claims of entitlements. The one who should be the most angry. Where’s his anger? He puts it aside because he loves his country and everyone else should follow his lead.
