There's been a lot of discussion about the existence or non existence of "white privilege". How about "white guilt"? Do you believe there really is such a thing?

Well you havent attached it yet but....isnt that an individual thing? Can people speak for others and how they feel?

I guess I'll wait for the poll and see how you phrase it, what you mean.

Edit: I voted Other...because while I dont feel any 'white guilt' other people might.

I'm not sure many people would actually cop to feeling what others might see as "white guilt". They might not see it as "guilt" at all, but rather being sensitive or something like that.

I'm not sure your poll is crafted to elicit the responses you want then.

In discussion on reparations, lots of people (altho not the majority) do support paying that, so that certainly indicates some feel obligation or sensitivity at least.

Knowing that, I'd have to speculate that yes, 'white guilt' does exist.

I'd think white guilt is nearly entirely in the eye of the beholder.

Just who in the hell belongs to this white race ? Does it include immigrants ? light skinned Latinos , Polish , Italian , French , Irish , ???? What do they all have to be guilty about ? Do YOU feels guilty ? And WHY ? :confused:
 
well i'm ashamed of being white so it must exist

of course people can exude shame or pride in anything, doesn't mean it's rational or justified
 
Only around 1.4% of whites in America owned slaves. I have no guilt.

I do fervently wish this country had never had slavery as any part of our history.

Yep. Absolutely. Almost exclusively in liberals. The more extreme the liberal, the deeper the guilt.

They tend to call it something else, though. The euphemisms will be varied; i.e. "tolerance", "compassion", "accommodation", and so on.

White privilege and white guilt are just liberal creations designed to justify their victimology schemes. I am white and have neither privilege nor guilt. The left wants me to feel guilty about lots of things, but it doesn't work.
 
It exists alright. I have met people who have it. Two who quickly come to mind are a couple of my brother's "trust baby" friends that he went to an elite university with. They have cases of it. As they haven't had to go out in the world and make their own way, living comfortably on what their parents provided for them, I think they have that spare time to sit around a feel guilty of all this idle time made so easily available to them.

Besides discuss how bad the white race has been, to practically everyone living and dead on the planet, they don't seem to do much about it. Neither, certainly, is going to go live in the inner city of Baltimore or of Green Bay, which is where they live respectively.

Myself, I think its silliness on stilts. I feel guilty only about what I have personally done wrong... and try my best to keep that at a minimum as I like to sleep well at night. And I do, especially with my new memory foam mattress...ahhhh, heaven...

I'm ashamed of my white legs. Does that count?

For some white liberals, yes. For many others no. Generally for other whites, no. For non-white "identity groups", typically the belief in "white guilt" correlates to their attachment to their non-white identity.

What on Earth are you ashamed of?

White guilt is simply a means by which wealth obsessed liberals grab for money that doesn't belong to them. It also gives them cover for their own personal failings Overall it is a symptom of that pernicious liberal disease of collectivism. They collectivize success with their 'you didnt built that' crap and collectivize failure by blaming society for the struggles of the incompetent. White privilege is the lie they tell to minorities they wish to ensnare in their collectivist web, and white guilt is a means by which they attempt to shame those who have succeeded into apologizing for it.
