White guilt itself is pointless and foolish. Being guilty die to the actions of your ancestors, or worse other people's ancestors, is illogical and will only breed anger and resentment.

That said, it is still the responsibility of society as a whole to work to fix what was historically broken. Black people have been at a disadvantage since slavery. When they were freed, they were largely illiterate and had little to no assets. This wasn't through their own fault but due to what had been done to them. This has been perpetuated throughout history to greater and lesser degrees. Society should try to help both them and any other demographic that is consistently at a disadvantage, without punishing anyone else.

I would suggest doing this by investing in education as well as by investing in social programs in areas with high poverty and crime. These would let people help themselves and leave the next generation in a better position to continue the progress.

This isn't because white people are guilty, it is because we should seek to give people the same opportunity to succeed.

Are you going to support your argument here, or continue your religious fanaticism without evidence?

wights are the blackest spirits.
There are no white people, just stupid human victims of wights.
They trick humans claiming to be whites into getting killed by humans claiming to be blacks.
