As a black guy, fuck the idea of white guilt. Why should I be mad at you for something we both weren't alive for? I'm just not a fan of the ones who want to continue that bs today.

Thank you. I will say I do not like much of what has happened in the past, but there's nothing I can do to change that, and no amount of reparations will make the actual victims feel any better about what was done.

Also, a lot of good has come as a result of those horrible actions. For example, what was done to the Native Americans by my ancestors was pretty fucking horrible, but I seriously doubt any of those Native American tribes could have stopped the Germans or Japanese in WWII. Tit for tat.

Are you sure? The indigenous North Americans didn't let the Vikings keep their toehold in the New World.

When it comes to the US, white guilt is bullshit. Freed blacks in the south had a much higher rate of being slave owners, but no one holds freedmen accountable for that. I got my problems and you got ours.
