    Yeah, I would absolutely not consider a white person who opposes bad policing or racism in the CJ system to be acting out of "white guilt." But that aside, it would be interesting to look at.

    Not gonna change there. I'd do a lot more editing if I thought a lot of people were reading archives. I do add the "Ed:" tag when I think enough time has passed that people have probably read the original already.

    At its core, this may be a disagreement over whether or not black people in the USA are mistreated on average, relative to white people. I say no, and it seems you say yes.

    Too be fair the vast majority of those peeps arent really descended from european nations that were conquered but rather did the conquering. There is no islamic invasions , golden horde, tatars etc etc, ottomans etc etc. Hence why north western euros are a little bit starry eyed when it comes to certain regions and why people fand why people from the balkans arent bending over backwards for them.

    He apologized for all that stuff, OK?

    The point stands though; a Jewish screenwriter revealing their strategy, hiding out in the open: use "POC" against whites to keep them divided and distracted while the real wizard behind the curtains takes away your jobs, freedom of speech, and continues to concentrate money in the hands of a few.

    Why do you assume it's shame or guilt and not recognizing an injustice or ill-treament?

    Sincerely, if I see a handicap kid being bullied I don't have abled-guilt when I come to his/her side. I'm acting out of a general sense of civility.

    Um. What has one got to do with the other?
    many black people expect whites to do it but don't do so themselves

    Because I don't see the "injustice" or "ill-treatment" that you mention. I also don't think these guilt-feeling white people have observed "injustice" in their personal lives. I think they are being herded into feeling that way via propaganda and groupthink.

    Your point can't stand because it has no legs. You don't need a jewish boogeyman to note the schism between the white majority (whoever they are) and POC (whoever they are)...although I might not understand what your'e talking about.

    There will always be people in society that, while not evil or malicious, serve absolutely no positive impact on any meso or macro circle they have any proximity to. They epitomise weakness and feeble-mindedness. And while such traits are not evil in and of themselves, evil forces make very easy use of them.

    These social media white knights are a prime example.

    If people simply dismiss them as such, all the better.
