On his horrific radio show, Rush Limbaugh argued that white people should not have to feel guilty about slavery.
According to Rush, slavery was no where near the worst the world has ever seen; and that white people deserve credit for fighting a war to end it.
He went on to say that Native Americans started wars with each other for slaves, and that “Ancient Rome went to war to win more slaves.”
According to Media Matters, Limbaugh closed his argument by saying:
But despite it all, no other race has ever fought a war for the purpose of ending slavery, which we did. Nearly 600,000 people killed in the Civil War. It’s preposterous that Caucasians are blamed for slavery when they’ve done more to end it than any other race, and within the bounds of the Constitution to boot. And yet white guilt is still one of the dominating factors in American politics. It’s exploited, it’s played upon, it is promoted, used, and it’s unnecessary.
Thoughts on this ignorance?
Where do we even begin?
