I've been clowning on this thread the entire time, but on a serious note.  Do black people actually want whites to feel guilty?

I can't speak for all Black people.  But I'd guess the answer from many of us would be, "No, but we do want you to acknowledge your privilege and realize that 40 years can't undo 400."

I see, but you would have to address that to particular people.  I live in the coal fields of Southern West Virginia, there's not much privilege here.  Looks more like a third world country in some parts.

Agreed.  But you're still White and you can still pass for one of those privileged Whites.  We don't have that luxury.

I know, but when black people rant about whites (privileged).  We (po' folk) sit there and scratch our heads wondering what we did.  To the ignorant poor whites that creates a bit of resentment, then that just makes things worse.

The tension between poor Whites and African-Americans is much deeper than that.  It's rooted in economic competition, which is the same thing that irks me about the way some African-Americans treat Chicanos nowadays.

Let the poor fight amongst themselves so the rich can keep on gettin' richer

Doubt it, unless you end up on a wait list.
