I'm sick of all these topics about race popping up on Ats lately. Now here's another one. I'm going to just sit back and continue to read more negative comments about black people. Thanks a lot op. White people are soooo nice.

How does what he said hurt any of you in any way, unless you happen to be a white supremacist?
What is so horrible about saying you are sorry for what someone has had to go through? Why do you assume it means you are taking the blame for it?

That's NOT what he did. He claimed to speak for ALL white people and he did so while fully embracing the absurdity of 'white guilt'.
He did NOTHING to try to 'calm down a tense situation' but instead he's feeding it with his continued race baiting and dividing of the races.
And yes, it's offensive for anyone to claim to have the audacity and arrogance to speak for an entire group of people.

If you came to ats tomorrow saying your house got destroyed by a hurricane and it killed your wife and daughter, I would say "Gosh bro, I'm really about all of that, and I'm sure I speak for everyone here at ats." Now, does that mean I should expect a bill in the mail for the house and to be arrested for murder the next day? Does that mean I'm saying its everyone else's fault too? No, it just means "hey I feel for ya".
