“White Guys: We suck
And We’re Sorry.” That is the title of a new 2-minute video(click to view) written and
produced by Stephen Parkhurst, who gained some notoriety for a similarly themed
video he created last year entitled “Millennials: We Suck And We’re Sorry.”
According to the video’s YouTube description, it is time for “straight white
dudes” to apologize. “It’s not that we’re against inequality,” the description
claims. “We just can’t relate to it.”

While it may feel like you are watching a Saturday Night Live skit, alas, you
are not – this is real):
Glenn came across the video
last night, and he immediately got to writing a monologue in response. On radio
this morning, Glenn questioned what exactly he is supposed to apologize for. Is
being born a certain way now a crime? Are all white men really as evil as the
clip suggests? Finally, is apologizing for the actions of those who came before
us the new ‘status quo’ in the collectivist society progressives are fighting
so hard for?
don’t even know what I’m supposed to apologize for,” Glenn said. “Being born a
certain way? Are you going to apologize for being born black? Are you going to
apologize for being born Hispanic? I’m not going to apologize for being born
white, and I’m not going to apologize for being born a male.”
impression was that the entire movement was supposed about how you’re not
supposed to apologize for the way were you born,” Stu added. “And yet here we
are apologizing for the way we were born.”
Below is a rough transcript of the monologue:
know what we’re doing as a society. We’re tearing apart absolutely everything
and splitting us into little groups. Now white men suck, and we need to
apologize. This is something now that is sweeping our college campuses… You’ll
think it’s a joke. You’ll think it’s a Saturday Night Live kit, but it’s not,
they’re serious. ‘Hi, I’m white. I’m a male, and I suck. And I’ve oppressed
people for so long.’ Now, I haven’t oppressed anybody. I don’t apologize for my
whiteness or for being born a male. There are some things I can’t change. Oh,
no, I guess now I can change that. There are some things I don’t want to change
and being a white male, no matter where I live in the world, I’m not ashamed
of. I never will be. Yes, I am a white. A white man. Oh, no, but all white
males don’t suck. Some have sucked, sure. Some still suck. Uh-huh.
But isn’t it racist to condemn
an entire group based on color? And what’s even more amazing: This is coming
out of the university systems that are trying to teach us how to be tolerant.
What’s more amazing is this is more than just racism. It’s also sexism and
gender bashing. All three of those things were constantly being lectured to as
being bad. All three of those things I was taught was wrong growing up in a
household in the 1960s – run by a white male. Is it possible I learned that
those things were wrong? But could we look at the theory of all white men suck
for a minute?
Mugabe, white male. He sucked. Wait, no, he’s black. Well, a white male Che
[Guevara]. He sucked. He killed all kinds of people. Hated homosexuals. Hated
blacks. Oh, no, wait. He was Hispanic. Well, Mao. Mao, he really sucked. But
wait, he was Chinese. So maybe it isn’t race because some of the biggest
killers of the last 100 years were of different colors.
Okay, it’s got to be
something different because Robert Byrd sucked and he was a white male. He was
a Klan member. But he was a Democrat. Hitler sucked. He was white. But he was a
socialist. Stalin sucked, and he was a white male. But he was a communist. Yes,
they’re all men. Maybe that’s it. It’s just that they’re all men. No, Margaret
Sanger, she sucked. She’s responsible for the death of millions. And she was
white, but she was a woman and a progressive.
Grinch puzzled and puzzled until his puzzler was sore. To suck because you’re a
white male isn’t quite right. Maybe, just maybe, there’s a little bit more. Abe
Lincoln, he was a white male. He didn’t suck. Jack Kennedy, he was a white
male. He didn’t suck. The new pope, he’s a white male. A lot of people don’t
think he sucked. The first beloved black president, he’s a white male. Wait.
Tesla was a white male. He gave us the outlet and the power generation that we
now have in our damns. The reason why you can hear my voice today is because of
Tesla. He was a white male. Louis Pasteur is the reason why many of us are
alive today. He was a white male. He gave us antibiotics. Henry Ford was a white
guy. He gave us the assembly line which created a Detroit that was out in the
front lines in early 1900s as a city that was an absolute boon for blacks and
anyone who wanted and needed good jobs. Yes, Henry Ford was personally a racist
and horribly anti-Semitic. But I believe he was also a progressive Democrat.
His work is responsible for one of the largest cash cows for the progressive
movement, the Ford Foundation.
minute,’ said the Grinch. If the left hates the white man so much, one of the
worst white men who ever created a whole bunch of jobs and a whole bunch of
good things. But let’s not concentrate on that. Let’s just concentrate on his
racism, his blood money that he made. If they hate him so much, then they
should refrain from taking that blood money from the Ford Foundation. FDR, he
was a white male, beloved by the elite and left. And of course, we know he
didn’t suck. He only put the Japanese behind barbed wire. He was a progressive
Democrat, you know. Woodrow Wilson, there’s a white man for you. Oh, college
professors love him. Same college professors who now want me to call all white
men evil, continually put Woodrow Wilson as one of the greatest presidents to
ever live – in the same category as Abraham Lincoln and that other guy who built
the concentration camps for people of different color. What’s so odd about this
grouping is the fact that one of them freed the slaves as a white Republican
and the other two are progressive Democrats. And Wilson re-segregated the army
– a profound racist and a general in the war on women. Hmm.
noticing a pattern here. LBJ was a white male. He was also a progressive
democratic icon. Everybody loved him. He was a creator of the great society. He
was also the man who single-handedly shut down the civil rights legislation and
kept it down for a decade before it was finally reintroduced when he was
president. It was a decade of strife, of bloodshed, and assassinations of
Malcolm X and MLK. If LBJ had been on the right side, none of that stuff would
have had to happen. Side note: The legislation was proposed by a white male, a
president who is white. No, not John F. Kennedy, of course. You’d have to use
Common Core math to make that a decade. No, it was Dwight Eisenhower. A white
male. Yes, who was also one of those Republicans.
white heritage that we’re supposed to now hate is also the Judeo-Christian
heritage which first freed the slaves in Egypt and then led to the
enlightenment and the Second Great Awakening which freed the slaves in America.
It is the white heritage that gave us Benjamin Franklin, yes, that evil
founder, who was not only a strong abolitionist but also started the first
public hospital and gave the world his invention of the potbelly stove for
free. It’s that heritage or the so-called white heritage that is so evil that
gave the world the electric light, the movie camera, the television, the
Internet, the moon landing. Yes, blacks and people of all different colors and
races were involved in that heritage. But here’s the conundrum: You really
can’t condemn an entire culture and claim that this culture has made it
impossible for the man of color to participate in any meaningful way and then
try to claim that the black man or the yellow man or the red man or any man or
any woman was powerful enough to add any significant contribution to the
amazing accomplishments of this evil white culture. Because if you did, in
doing so, you would invalidate your entire argument.
man, my puzzler is sore again. Of course, if you didn’t do that, then you would
have to point out that what happened here in this white male-run evil culture
wasn’t all bad. In fact, some, if not much of it, was profoundly good for
humans. I mean it wasn’t the Asian culture that did these things. Or the actual
African culture that did this. Or the female Hispanic culture, which again
seems to undercut the argument that the white heritage isn’t all bad. A lot of
things do go into the damning of a man.
imagine what part a man’s race might play. I always was taught by my father and
my grandfather, both white males, that racism was when you judged a man based
solely on his race and lumped everyone together due to their skin or to their
heritage. They taught me that that’s what Hitler did – judged people by groups,
put people in groups of race, color, or ability. It’s what led to Hitler
killing the handicapped because they were no longer people. They were just a
an idea. Actually, with the way things are going today in America, it seems to
be less of an idea or at least less of a workable idea and more of, I don’t
know, a dream. Let’s leave it at that. I have a dream that one day black
children and white children will all play together and work together and love
each other and build a better future. I have a dream that a man will not be
judged on his sexuality or his gender or his race, but rather the content of
his individual character. I know, impossible, isn’t it? We all seem to be
moving in the opposite direction. But, hey, this is still America where a man
can still dream, right? End = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
James Version (KJV)
then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth
on the right hand of God.
2 Set your
affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 For ye
are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in
therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness,
inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
6 For which
things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
7 In the
which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.
8 But now
ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy
communication out of your mouth.
9 Lie not
one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
10 And have put
on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that
there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian,
Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
12 Put on
therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness,
humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any:
even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
14 And above
all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.
15 And let
the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one
body; and be ye thankful.
16 Let the
word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one
another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your
hearts to the Lord.
whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving
thanks to God and the Father by him.
6 (King James Version)
the whole armour of God
my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour
of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we
wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against
powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual
wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you
the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and
having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having
your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with
the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the
shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of
17 And take the helmet of
salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all
prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all
perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19 And for me, that
utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known
the mystery of the gospel,
For whoever will call on
the name of the Lord will be saved." - Romans 10:13
"There is a God in Heaven who loves you as you are and not as you should
Yes... you are right... there is a God. You know that must be true. The heart
the human being longs for God, and logic demands divine existence.
While everyone believes God is... most sense separation from God. We
know God must be holy and good. We see ourselves as unholy and not good.
We conclude that God is angry with us and we cannot know Him.
Good News! This Testament of God's love is His Word to tell us that He loves
us as we are. That love will save us from our sin and make us what we should
be as God's children.
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only
begotten Son, that
whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life."
We hear Jesus say, "God so loved the world."
God's love has no limitations.
He loves "so". More than we can
imagine. He loves everyone - not just
Romans 5:8 tells us that God loved us so that
"when we were in our sin
Christ Jesus came to die for us."
Romans 3:23 "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory
This verse tells us that all people have sinned. We have fallen short of
God's intended purpose for us. God made us to know Him.... to receive His
love and to love him in return.
For love to be love... for God to be God... and for humans to be humans....
God gave us a choice. We can choose to love ourselves and turn to our
selfish pursuits. That is sin. In our sin we cannot know God and His love.
The result of sin is that we are lost... separated from God.
Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift
of God is eternal life in
Christ Jesus our Lord."
Wages are just payment... due reward... what one has coming because of
labor. The just payment for our sin is death.
Death here means spiritual insensitivity. When we are still in our sin, we
have no life with God. We are alive physically but dead spiritually. If we
continue in that condition, we will be separated from God for all eternity.
The wages of sin is death. but God's free gift is eternal life. While wages
are earned, a gift is offered... no strings attached. God says He will give us
eternal life - life with Him - in the place of sin's payment of death.
How can God remain true to His holiness and forgive unholy sinners?
Because Jesus, His Son, has paid the price for sin by His death on the cross.
Second Corinthians 5:21 says, "He who knew no sin
became sin for us, that
we may be made the righteousness of God through Him."
Jesus arose from the grave to conquer sin and death for all who receive Him
as God's free gift.
How can you receive God's free gift of love and life?
Romans 10:9-10 "that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as
Lord, and believe in your heart
that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a
person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he
confesses, resulting in salvation."
A person receives God's free gift of love and life by placing faith in Jesus
Christ. To believe is simply to take God at His word. With our heart
(whole believing) we believe that Jesus is God's Son who died for our sin
on the cross and arose from the grave to live in us as Savior and Lord.
To believe in Jesus will result in confessing that faith with one's mouth.
Do you acknowledge that your are a sinner?
Do you believe by faith that Jesus, God's Son, died for your sin on the cross?
Will you now confess Him as your Savior and Lord?
Romans 10:13 "for Whoever will call on the name of the Lord
will be saved."
This verse says that any person who will call upon the name of Jesus,
the Lord, shall be saved.
To call means simply to ask in prayer. The verse does not require one to
know more... do better... clean up one's life... or in any way try to add to
what Jesus has done for us.
Will you now call upon Jesus to save you from your sin so that you
can know God's love and forgiveness?
Pray like this: "Dear God, I confess that I am a sinner, and I am
sorry. I need
a Savior. I know I cannot save myself. I believe by faith that Jesus, your
Son, died on the cross to be my Savior. I believe He arose from the grave
to live as my Lord. I turn from my sin. I ask You, Lord Jesus, to forgive my
sin and come into my heart. I trust you as my Savior and receive you as
my Lord. Thank you, Jesus, for saving me."
When anyone calls on the Lord in this manner, that one is saved according
to God's Word. If you pray a prayer of repentance and faith, you are
You have God's word on it.
If you have prayed this prayer to receive Christ as your Lord and Savoir, why
not record your decision to follow Jesus as follows. Often times, a good place
to write this would be inside the cover of your bible:
Believing by faith that God loves me and sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die
for my sin and arise from the grave to live in me, I, _______, do this day,
________, repent of my sin and accept Jesus Christ as my personal Lord
and Savior. According to the promise of God in Romans 10:13, I have
called upon His name and have His word for the assurance of my salvation.
