Stepford SJW's but nothing to see here?

What is wrong with some of you that you think this is okay?

I like to think that I am a humble man and have apologized even when I wasn't sure I had done something wrong. Married for 34 years, I know damned well right I have apologized many times just to make peace.
That said I have nothing to apologize to the black community for . I never had slaves, my ancestors didn't have slaves, and as far as I know I have never screwed a black person over.

My friend that was over Sunday is only half black at most....probably closer to 1/4 black based upon pigmentation so I suppose they would owe a 3/4 apology?

What if the person next to them was 30% black and they were 28% black?

Would a 2% apology just be a nod in their direction?

Clearly we need some sort of apology chart starting out at the bottom with the nod...then maybe a nod with a some sort of nice compliment about the persons hat? Then graduating up to a handshake and maybe a cheese tray? Finally at the top would be self flaggelation, forfeiture of all assets and something involving massage oil?

Let me guess: she is getting sick and tired of her campaign going nowhere, so she wants to go with the bang. Even if directed at her own foot.

Blacks owe whites for dying for the cause to end slavery.. now the blacks want every single white person who has nothing to do with slavery to kiss the feet of every black person and feel extreme white guilt.. this is sick!!

This HUUUUGE injustice, crimes against humanity as it is known today, happened. But we should just look the other way as a nation with an Oh well, it is over now. Except it isn't. Without reconciliation there can be no meaningful forward motion.

White liberal guilt is a chronic - but usually not terminal - condition. If you find yourself suffering from white guilt, consult your local woman of color social justice arbitrator for appropriate course of treatment, including:

1) Apologizing to random people of color;
2) Tithing to people of color as a form of reparations;
3) Paying people of color for their "emotional work" involved with interacting with you as a white person;
4) Resigning your position at work to a person of color;
5) Attempting to educate non-liberal white people about their white privilege.

How many apologies are needed and by whom? How many times do we have to beat this dead horse? Everyone admits that it was wrong and everyone admits that the Jim Crowe laws were wrong. An apology that isn't heartfelt, made by people who have done nothing wrong is a worthless apology.

I think you fall right into their trap in thinking this way.
Williams doesnt speak for every white person anymore than Harris speaks for every black person.

Well, to be fair it wasn't a black person calling for this, it was a white lady. I'm not sure the average black person is looking for whites to kiss their feet or feel extreme guilt.

At least I don't think so anyway.
