This is but the latest example of the White-trashing that has become endemic to our society and has infested every facet of our culture from Common Core in our schools to "civil rights" agitation in the halls of government. But I, for one, ain't buying it.
I am proud to be White. I am proud to be a member of the race that built Notre Dame and Westminster Abbey. It was a White man who invented the steam engine, and it was White men who used that steam engine to build machines that showered all of mankind with wealth and opportunity and freedom. And I am proud to be a member of the race that did that.
It was White men who sailed across a vast ocean to colonize this country, and it was White men who explored the rivers and forests of the interior of this country and built forts and farms and cities. It was White men who bound a continent together with steel rails and it was White men who invented and built the automobiles that endowed the world with unlimited personal mobility. It was White men who drilled wells at Spindletop Texas and gave the world a virtually unlimited supply of cheap, clean fuel.
There are many people today who are afflicted with cultural myopia. They look at 19th Century New England, with millions of housewives and workers and students basking in the flickering light of oil lamps – lamps fueled by the courage and strength of men who sailed far asea in tiny boats to supply that oil – and all they can see is a dead whale. They look at a nation on wheels, able to cheaply travel and to move goods from one coast of a continent to the other. And they see only gasoline smoke. They look at a bold and brawny nation comprising less that 5% of the world's population and creating over 25% of the world's wealth – and they can see only those who chose not to participate in that effort.
I am tired of these people telling me I am inferior. I am a member of the race that has done more to benefit mankind than all the rest put together. I will not be put down. I am not ashamed to be White and I adamantly refuse to allow White apologists to saddle me with artificial guilt.
I owe no one equality. I am a member of the race that created equality – out of nothing – and gave it freely to the rest of mankind. We White people do not have a responsibility to share our wealth. We are the race that creates wealth – out of nothing. And we are the race that created the opportunity for everyone to share in that wealth.
But it's up to you to avail yourself of the opportunity we have given you. We have done our job – and we have done it well.
