Okay I'll start of by saying that I'm a first generation guy of parents from Eastern Europe so why guilt doesn't apply to me.

White guilt still exist because whites of today feel guilty about the horrible things their ancestors did to blacks.

I mean 400 years of slavery, lynching, raping, killing, demoralizing, and robbing those blacks of their African mother languages and culture.

Also only recently have whites started to realize the horrors that minorities have had to go through, in the very recent past they either ignored minority problems, denied them, or they were just totally oblivious to them living in their little white wonderland.

Oh please. It was blacks in Africa who sold blacks to white slavers. And lets look at Africa today how many millions of blacks have been slaughtered by blacks? And how many more will be? None of my ancestors had anything to do with slave trade or owning slaves as well as many other whites, so we have nothing to feel guilty about!

Well the only reason Africans sold you to them is because of supply and demand, Western European whites mainly Spaniards, French, and British demanded cheap slave labor, and then the Africans who had defeated other Africans in battle would sell their prisoners of war(pow).
