This probably should go in RSTDT.
And if you could prove that any of those things you say about MLK were true, how does that mean that equal rights for people of all races is a bad thing?

Way to attack the guy when he can't defend himself.
While I do agree that it's a tad silly to feel guilty over the actions of your ancestors (whom you had absolutely no control over), there's still no reason to hate another person because of something they can't control. I don't know about you, but I didn't get to pick my gender or race when I was conceived.

@#1116164, Doubting Thomas - If I'm not mistaken I submitted this one, while it's a bit RSTDT in places the guy is ranting about propaganda campaigns and how the FBI bumped MLK off etc. So I was always leaning towards CTSTDT.

As far as "white guilt" goes, anyone tries that shit on me and I inform them we didn't get here until 1914, so had absolutely nothing to do with it.
Hell even if my family was here, we would of been too poor to own a slave.
As for MLK, WTF?

Blacks today have less to receive from their ancestors because of what your ancestors did. You're not responsible for what they did, but you're responsible for correcting the situation, society as a whole is, if people weren't valued further than what they inherit it wouldn't be civilisation. Well-off blacks pay taxes too, it's not just you.

"Blacks today have less to receive from their ancestors because of what your ancestors did."
The bulk of Eurpoean (white) immigration to this country occurred in the late nineteenth/early twentieth century, long after slavery was abolished. Also, slaves were held only by the wealthy, or about 3,000 families, total, in the US, while the majority of us descend from much humbler, if not dirt poor, illiterate, immigrant ancestors, and have been given next to nothing in material inheritance, generation after generation. I've had to struggle (with 3 jobs) to be the first person in my family to get a college degree, and our ancestors came here 120 years ago, poor for generations. While we all, as a society, bear the responsibility to right injustice and end discrimination, to assume that any person with white skin bears greater responsibility for slavery or has accumualtied generations of wealth is injustice and racism in itself.

MLK did great things and was a black man.
Hitler did awful things and was a Christian.
Non sequiturs the both.
