Have you noticed how many white people have been apologizing lately? How many apologies do they have to give before realizing it’s useless?
You can’t turn on the TV or go on social media without seeing or hearing an apology for being white. Something that is completely out of one’s control. Whites are told they must feel guilty because “white privilege” comes with being white.
If you are a white male, you are double guilty and should apologize. White and gender two biological effects no one has control over. Yet the “Woke Supremacy” mob tells them they must apologize and feel guilty. If not be guilty.
The latest apology comes from Winston Marshall of the rock singing group Mumford & Sons. He is apologizing for reading and congratulating the book “UNMASKED” by the journalist, Andy Ngo on Twitter.
Ngo is known for his brave journalistic skills covering violent Antifa and BLM riots in Portland, Oregon. He has spoken out against both radical groups exposing them as being the hateful destructive agitators they are. In return, the radicals have viciously attacked him sending him to the hospital. The “Woke Supremacy” mob considers Ngo a right-wing enemy. He doesn’t bow to their hateful “woke” ways.
To say the least, as soon as the “woke” mob learned of Marshall’s congratulatory tweet to Ngo, they went on a social media attack. It got so bad that Marshall put out a follow-up tweet apologizing for not being sensitive and the need “to examine my blind spots.” He also decided to step down from his rock group. A cooling-off period from the uproar.
My questions: What blindspots? Who did he offend black people? How? Does the rocker think an apology will help or make black people (or people of color) feel better? Because it doesn’t. He merely liked a book.
Just two weeks ago Chris Harrison the host of the TV show the Bachelor/Bachelorette apologized for not recognizing his white privilege as a white man. Well, little did he know at the time the apology wasn’t taken seriously by the “woke” mob.
Let us not forget Beto O’Rourke, John Brennan, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, and Hannah Brown all apologized for their whiteness. There have been others and the list keeps growing.
When is this going to stop? White people can’t do a single thing about being born white, similarly, black people can’t do anything about being born black. Biological effects neither have control over.
What has happened to our society that we are now focusing on a person’s skin and not the content of character? Dr. King dreamed that we not be looked at based on skin.
This kind of stupidness and “racism” has to stop. We are better than that. Making others feel bad or tearing down one to build up another has no purpose in a civilized society. The country isn’t perfect but the division being created by making one feel guilty because of skin color is dangerously wrong.
