White Liberal Guilt

On the topic of Compulsory Displays of Mass Public Grief for Events I did not Attend and Concerning People I have not Known...

I don't feel guilty about the Holocaust, and really, I'm not losing any sleep over Slavery either.

When I said so, someone got upset. Apparently I'm a bad guy, since his grandfather was at Auschwitz.

So I said, "No kidding?! Mine too! Mine was the chap in the Canadian uniform who volunteered to be there getting shot at".

I was kind of making it up. Anyway it could have been true. I think he got my point.

I think you could add another category in your labels: "Judging history by today's standards/attitudes/idiotic-no-longer-based-in-truth values." You get my point. LJ
