If you look to the history of the US you find that the democrat party was deeply entrenched in the southern states. If you look to the proponents of racism i.e. the KKK, of segregation and of laws such as those designated as jim crow you find that their creators were entrenched in the democratic party.
So while you have a small portion of caucasion individuals who are responsible for said atrocities through their political positions, it did not represent the way the entire Country felt about race. It did represent however how the majority of the democratic party felt about race.
The healing and the headway that has occurred over the past decades with regards to race has been astounding, yet there are those who believe that in order for "parity" to occur there needs to be a collapse of society. This way of thinking flies in the face of the teachings of all of the great men who have fought for equality in the US.
There are those who make a living by thrusting racism into every act where people of diferent skin color are at odds. These same people ignore the atrocities commited against those they supposedly represent by those they choose to stand up for. Need I name names?
So how has the democratic party dealt with their stance on racism?
First lets look to a fundementle belief in each major party:
democrat- prior to abolition and ratifications of the Constitution- believed in segregation, and restraint, of minorities and government intervention wherever possible.
republican- individual responsibility and as little government intervention as possible.
So the democrats started a decades long campaign to convince the Country that minorities needed extra help in attaining equality. While this may have been the case when the ball first started rolling, this belief has morphed beyond what might have been the original intention, if indeed the intention was benevolent.
The republican belief in individual responsibility and as little government intervention as possible has not changed, though the democrat montra that this way of thinking is somehow racist has rung loud. Don't forget- EVERY MAN IS EQUAL IN THIER OPPORTUNITY (of course I use man as an inclusive for women as well) TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN ANY AVENUE THEY PERSUE UNDER THE CONSTITUTION. Providing its legal, of course.
And yet the democratic narrative doesn't reflect this fact. They have made the claim that racism and the roots of racism throughout the Country are all inclusive. That EVERY person that is not a minority is responsible for the events that transpired decades ago and that EVERY person needs to FEEL as though they still are and act accordingly.
The democrat has gone from being a party of separation and restraint of minorities to the party of government dependence by minorities. The democrats have created a government domesticated minority culture. Yes, the democrat is treating minorities like government pets with the only intention being that the minorities continue to vote them into power.
As more and more individuals realize that true equality is in the opportunity available to ALL, they drift from the democrat ideals and see the sanity in individual responsibility.
As this occurs the democratic narrative shifts gears and starts creating false chasms in an effort to suppress any efforts to advance our society.
There will always be hatred, in many forms, and the aim to eliminate it completely is noble yet unrealistic.
Events that transpire involving racism in this Country are dealt with swiftly in most instances, and uncovering deep rooted patterns of abuse still need to occur so the overall mindset of such behavior changes.
The constant cry of racism and the inuendo that there are only racist motivations behind actions that are ideologically based do no good for that cause, and are only being used in an effort to hide a lack of substance within the democrat ideology.
So those who should feel guilty are not white people for something that occured decades ago. The people that should feel guilty are those democrats that continue to use the false narratives to further repress any advance made in society dealing with those that still hold to hatred in their beliefs.
Democrat guilt. They should own it. But they won't, because they don't believe in individual responsibility.
