Is 2017 the Year White Guilt Ends?


White Guilt, White Privilege, White.  Three terms thrown around in the past year or so. All with negative connotations.  With this year’s Presidential election decided pretty much by a handful of white voters, does any of this change?
White Guilt
White Guilt is the individual or collective guilt felt by some white people for harm resulting from racist treatment of ethnic minorities by other white people both historically and currently. (Shelby Steele. A World of Difference: White Guilt) White guilt has been described as one of the psychosocial costs of racism for white individuals along with empathy (sadness and anger) for victims of racism and fear of non-whites. (Lisa Spanierman. Psychosocial Costs of Racism to Whites Scale. Journal of Counseling Psychology. 51(2):249–262 Apr 2004.)

“We are in a retrograde moment,” Burns explained, “in which the dog whistles of race that have been with us — we can’t pretend now that a phenomenon of the kind of racial innuendo that’s happening right now is somehow new and we’re shocked, shocked that this is happening.” - KB

Student Elections Outcome Initally Cancelled Due To White Guilt!

A student government election at a San Francisco middle school had its results ignored after a principal decided the candidates elected were too white. Elections were held at Everett Middle School Oct. 10, but on Oct. 14 principal Lena Van Haren sent an email to parents saying the results were being ignored, without being made public, because those elected did not reflect how diverse the school is. While Everett is more than 80 percent non-white, Van Haren said the election results “weren’t representative” of that. “That is concerning to me because as principal I want to make sure the voices are all heard, from all backgrounds,” Van Haren told local KTVU News.
