Amnesty and Pardon for White Folks Redux

From Walter Williams, the economist at George Mason University, a gift to all the worried whiteys out there.

I post this Proclamation occasionally to remind you that all has long been forgiven. Go have a beer on Dr. Williams and ignore the President's attacks.

Remember cries of "raaacism" are so...so utterly 2007. Time to move on.

Walter Williams says so.


Proclamation of Amnesty and Pardon Granted to All Persons of European Descent


Whereas, Europeans kept my forebears in bondage some three centuries toiling without pay,

Whereas, Europeans ignored the human rights pledges of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution,


Whereas, the Emancipation Proclamation, the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Amendments meant little more than empty words,


Therefore, Americans of European ancestry are guilty of great crimes against my ancestors and their progeny.


But, in the recognition Europeans themselves have been victims of various and sundry human rights violations to wit: the Norman Conquest, the Irish Potato Famine, Decline of the Hapsburg Dynasty, Napoleonic and Czarist adventurism, and gratuitous insults and speculations about the intelligence of Europeans of Polish descent,


I, Walter E. Williams, do declare full and general amnesty and pardon to all persons of European ancestry, for both their own grievances, and those of their forebears, against my people.


Therefore, from this day forward Americans of European ancestry can stand straight and proud knowing they are without guilt and thus obliged not to act like damn fools in their relationships with Americans of African ancestry.


Walter E. Williams, Gracious and Generous Grantor
