In defense of white guys

DEAR EDITOR:

No one can deny that Barack Obama loves to divide people into groups. He has divided the nation in ways it hasn’t seen since the 1860s and seems to enjoy fueling rancorous fights between different groups, especially race groups.

In these days of “Obama-Division,” there is one group that has become the most maligned and discriminated against — us white guys.

Yes, it is true. If someone wants to beat up on a group of folks, they can beat up on us white guys all they want. White guys are “fair game” for insults anytime.

Say the most nasty and awful things about us, as a group, and you will be applauded; never condemned or castigated. We don’t have a “C-word” or an “N-word” or a “B-word” or an “anything word” applying to us such that the very utterance of that word will bring about universal condemnation rendering your character in ruins, as Paula Deen’s is after her taboo breach. You can call us whatever you want and it’s OK.

Even in radio and TV commercials, you will notice it is always the white guy that’s the dummy that can’t do anything. The white guy is always the fat, lazy jerk watching TV, the idiot that blows up the grill, the moron that can’t operate the oven, or the fool that the bear attacks because he booked the wrong hotel room.

But the truth is that us white guys aren’t all that bad and I am proud to be a white guy. Us white guys have done some pretty darn good things that have helped all groups indiscriminately.

For instance, look at the world’s 300 greatest inventions that clearly have helped everyone on this planet live a better life, and helped this planet too for that matter.

And consider this: more white guys than any other “group” by far have given their lives to free and to liberate all other groups across this world, like we did in Kuwait, Iraq, Bosnia, Grenada, Afghanistan and countless other oppressed countries.

More white guys than any others died saving Europe in World War I and again in World War II. More white guys than all other groups combined died freeing the black slaves in our own Civil War in the 1860s.

And don’t forget, it was a group of all white guys that wrote our Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. These documents laid the foundation for God’s Greatest Nation that is now the best place in the world to live no matter what group you want to put yourself in: old or young, atheist or other, homosexual, heterosexual, bisexual or transsexual, African-America, Asian-American, Hispanic-American, Muslim-American, any other “hyphenated-American”, or just a plain ol’ American like most of us white guys are.

I believe us white guys have a very positive “group attribute” that everyone in all those other groups should give a try. Us white guys don’t tend to ever join “white guy groups”.

We consider ourselves to be in just one group. We are in the “American Group” that disagrees with Obama’s mentality that everyone should divide into groups so each can be offended, grab as many government goodies as they can, and fight each other all the time.

Us white guys are in the group that disagrees with that divisive Obama policy that has divided the nation.

Perhaps all the other groups should consider joining ours.
