    You can not be charged with a crime you parents committed. You can not be held responsible for debt that your father incurred.

    There is no such thing in our legal system as collective guilt.

    If you are German and your grandfather was a Nazi running a death camp you are not required to make payments to Israel.

    You are responsible for your actions, not those of your ancestors.

      Yes, you can. You can be dealt with in a way that reflects what your 13% has done, is doing now, and assumed to do in the future.

    No one should feel guilty about any history other than their own.

    Why would anybody feel guilty about history since history was not created by a single individual regardless of their race....Syntax doesn’t seem to be your strong suit does it?

    If you knew anything about the history of the US you would know that it was brutal and lawless. White men, women, and children were indentured servants who were expected to pay for their passage to the US by the capitalists who kept most of their pay and gave them an unheated shack to live in. They paid for years and not got ahead.

    Children were forced to work in coal mines because they were small and could fit in the smallest areas. Women and children were expected to work for the capitalists in sweatshops, for slave wages, where they had to sew for eighteen hours a day. The buildings were fire traps and hundreds of women were burned alive. This was in the early 1900s

    The rich abused and treated the Irish, Swedish and Germans immigrants like dirt. Much of it was so brutal that they had to remove it from the history books. Do you feel guilty because these groups were the whitest of the white?

    White people have don't horrible things. Caesar, Nero, Cortés, Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, etc etc weren't very nice people.

    If you feel guilty about something done 200 years before you were born you need counselling.

    That appears to be a primary problem in the Middle East where far too many seek revenge for harm done to their ancestors 800 or more years ago. Tath is just insane.
