Reason for the continual "get over it" phrase and the "banging the drum" for 9-11? White guilt versus White skewed non guilt.
Slavery? direct White fault/guilt. 9-11? Muslim fault/guilt and skewed White fault/guilt.
White American people believe that American foreign policy politics HAD ABSOLUTY NOTHING to do with the 9-11 attack. Their belief? "they (the Muslim world) hate us because of our freedoms and the way we live".
The Bush/Chaney White House sold it, White America bought it hook, line & sinker.
So now, according to the White way of thinking, the entire Muslim world (including the Nation of Islam) is on the hook for 9-11 and now cultural blame has been shifted forever. Now Whites have someone else to hate, the Muslim world and Black America should hate them equally as well.
Finally, according to White America's way of thinking, we have something in common.
It seems that Whites need someone/something to hate. Sounds like a genetic flaw to me.
I had a conservation a while ago with a White women who told me that she hated the Muslims who owned and operated a convience store (she shops there regularly & at the time continued to do so) located close to her home.
She told me that if she had the opportunity that she would kill them because of what they did to us. I asked her "prior to 9-11, how did you feel about them?'. She said that they were OK. I then asked, "so what has changed about them after 9-11?".
Long pause. No answer, then she said "I just don't like them".
For White folks, they constantly have to find that place of "not my fault/responsibility" in their minds. They tell themselves "forget about slavery, WE got attacked on 9-11 and now WE live in absoulte and constant fear everyday from ALL Muslims. This is what's important now, not the past.
That "WE" according to White folk, includes Black America.
