White Guilt
Posted by: MichaelW on Monday, October 27, 2008

For some people, the end will always justify the means.
White people shouldn't be allowed to vote

As a lifelong Caucasian, I am beginning to think the time has finally come to take the right to vote away from white people, at least until we come to our senses. Seriously, I just don't think we can be trusted to exercise it responsibly anymore.

I give you Exhibit A: The last eight years.

In 2000, Bush-Cheney stole the election, got us attacked, and then got us into two no-exit wars. Four years later, white people reelected them. Is not the repetition of the same behavior over and over again with the expectation of a different outcome the very definition of insanity? (It is, I looked it up.)

Exhibit B is any given Sarah Palin rally.

Exhibit C would be Ed Rendell and John Murtha, who in separate moments of on-the-record candor they would come to regret, pointing out that there are plenty of people in Pennsylvania who just cannot bring themselves to pull the lever for a black man - no matter what they tell pollsters.
White people are too prone to being racist to be trusted with the franchise according to Mr. Valania, echoing John Murtha's assessment of Western Pennsylvania voters. Is he simply joking? Well, the sarcasm is pretty thick, but the author does offer this explanation of his intent:
By this point, you either think I am joking or are calling me an elitist. I assure you I am neither. OK, maybe a little of both.
Joking or not, the basic gist of the article is deadly serious, and sounds a theme that we've seen touted before: i.e. the only reason Barack Obama would lose the election is because of racist white people.

And regardless of the humorous intent, it's clear that the author thinks that Obama should be elected primarily because he is black, which is why he states with tongue sort of hanging out in cheek:
These people are ruining things for the rest of us white people who are ready to move on.


Accordingly, per Mr. Valania, white people shouldn't be allowed to vote. How quaint.

Any guesses as to how this would go over if instead it were a humorous suggestion as to why black people should not be allowed to vote? Hispanics? Women? Yeah, you're right. Who I am kidding. That sort of editorial wouldn't ever see the light of day in a major newspaper. How silly of me.

Isn’t this the same newspaper that publsied an editorial preditcting that there will be race riots if Obama does not win?

Oh yes it is.

Jon Valania’s still running around loose? Jeez.

In the late 80s/early 90s, he used to sing in a third-rate garage-psych band called the Psychlone Rangers around the Allentown/Bethlehem area in Pennsylvania. They got signed during the label feeding frenzy when "grunge" was the next big money-maker. They went nowhere, loudly and boringly. I met Jon once, around 1991. He was a cocky cretin.

Valania’s been saying stupid glib stuff like this for years. He does it because when you’re not very smart, acting stupid is the only way to get people to pay attention. He’d bite the heads off chickens if he thought of it.

That Lehigh Valley retro-psych scene was pretty cool, by the way. The Rangers were about the worst band that came out of it. The Original Sins, man. Great stuff.

They don’t make medication strong enough for this level of crazy...

I mean, he’s nearly far enough gone to have come full circle back to sane.

I’m unfamiliar with the Philly Inquirer, is this par for the course for this rag or what?
Joking or not, the basic gist of the article is deadly serious, and sounds a theme that we’ve seen touted before: i.e. the only reason Barack Obama would lose the election is because of racist white people.
I’ve also heard the frequent theme that the only reason Obama would win is because of white guilt. Both ideas are equally absurd.
Let’s assume for the sake of argument that the election results are similar, as they frequently almost always are, to what the polls are telling us now. Wouldn’t it stand to reason that if white guilt were the reason Obama were to win, that the polls would show a consistent Obama lead throughout the election season? And wouldn’t it equally stand to reason that if racist white people were to be the reason that Obama were to lose, that the polls would show a consistent trailing from Obama?
To argue such a position would be to argue that the recent swing in the polls to Obama would have to be that voters are simply forgetful.

“Oh yeah, I forgot I was a guilty white person.” Or, “Oh yeah, I forgot I was a racist.”


The reasons that voters vote the way they do are vastly complex and/or superficially simple.

To explain away reasons voters vote as they do as “racist” or “guilty”, is to pigeonhole reasonable explanations any given partisan might find inexplicable.

Nowadays, yes. It used to be a good newspaper, or at least the best one in the Tri-State area (PA, DE, NJ). It always leaned liberal, but has become more so in the past 25 years, and does not seem to have any care about delivering news in any sort of objective format. Of course, I was just a high school kid when I was reading it on any sort of regular basis, so maybe it sucked back then too.

I have a fine idea:

Anyone who cannot pass a real citizenship test cannot vote. That includes everyone, Democrat and Republican, Independent and other.

And we have to have national ID standards to vote. If you cannot show a valid driver’s license, or some other picture ID, you CANNOT VOTE. Period.

But wait until the Dems go the other way and open the vote for illegal aliens, adding about 10 million voters to the rolls, all of whom will be happy to vote Democrat.

Pogue,

Its equally possible that due to white guilt some voters are torn between voting for McCain or Obama. Its a historic election and its psychically rewarding to vote for Obama in that way. So the voter wants to get the psychic reward of voting for Obama but when faced with his policies keeps bouncing back and forth.

There might also be racists who want to vote for a left-leaning candidate and have the same kind of effect - one day wanting to vote for Obama, then the next not.

(Myth of the Rational Voter talks a lot about voting behavior based on psychic rewards rather than any "rational" calculation, and I think definitely that’s true.)

pedro proposes the following color-blind true/false test:

1. the free market philosophy is always right.
2. government intervention is never called for.
3. big bidness can be trusted to do the right thing.
4. intelligence and competence in elected officials is a bad thing
5. dividing the country with inflamatory rhetoric is a valid campaign tactic.
6. putting a wall on zee border makes us safer.
7. most muslims hate amedica.
8. most democrats hate amedica.
9. george w. blows goats, but still better than a gore presidency.
10. voter registration fraud and voter fraud are the same thing.

pedro could go on. and on. but that’s asking mucho of methodists. you are after all only 1 step removed from baptist. if you answer true to even one of the above then pedro recommends you leave thees socialist country muy pronto. pedro recommends australia heartily!
