EnigmaticWorld Posted May 19, 2021 Share Posted May 19, 2021 3 hours ago, Firebird said: I think it has a lot to do with WWII and colonialism. People of today feeling ''guilty'' for stuff that happened in the past, associating their skin colour and their culture with bad pages in history. Ironically, it's part of the ''white saviour complex'' which they think they fight against but still hold closely in their hearts, it seems. I always find it fascinating how woke, white upper classes feel embarrassed by white working class people, but not by brown and black working class people. There's the assumption perhaps that white people shouldn't be 'worker class' but should have ascended or something. Similarly, bad pages in brown and black ethnicities are ignored or excused. See the returning theme here? White people are to be conscious of their ''past mistakes'' but other ethnicities aren't. This bias shows an expectation for white people that they are 'above it all', whereas brown and black people are more expected to not be as developed yet to the point they have to apologise for the past. There's subtle race stereotypes among white upper class people with progressive leanings. They call others racists for disagreeing with them but their own stereotypes and expectations of white and non-white populations are rather interesting.. I still don't understand why white people feel more guilt than others though. We sit there and watch our statues get taken down, meanwhile we still see Genghis Khan statues in other parts of the world. If the average white person understood how we became pawns for the global elites in 1066, or about the Barbary slave trade, the Holodomor, white girls being trafficked to brothels, and white people getting screwed in the world wars for somebody elses benefit and so on, then I'm sure we wouldn't commit cultural suicide. Unfortunately white people don't have much control over what gets taught to our children. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
