Ask the White Guy: Did White America Die With This Election

This Ask the White Guy column was based on “Buchanan: ‘White America’ Died Last Night,” a satire published by The Daily Current. At the time of publishing, DiversityInc mistakenly thought the article was factual, rather than satirical. However, this column and its opinions are still valid: Conservative commentator Pat Buchanan’s view that ‘white America is a dying tribe’ is supported by other articles linked here. Read the column then visit these links by Buchanan:


A.D. 2041 End of White America

Death Knell for the Silent Majority

Question: Pat Buchanan’s comments that “‘White America’ Died Last Night” make me angry. What do you think

Answer: Don’t get angry; take solace in what we are witnessing. Buchanan is a bigota racist, anti-Semitic creep. He’s chronologically old, but he’s one of those people who was born a bitter, ugly, little, shrunken, mean, horrid old man.

His white America may have died, but my white America didn’t die with this electionit was strengthened and improved. My white America is the one of Thomas Payne, Franklin, Lincoln, Susan B. Anthony, Franklin D. Roosevelt , Eleanor Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson. My white America may not understand Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as well as it should, but it knows what side of the trajectory of justice it wants to be on.

My white America is an ongoing experiment in human dignity, freedom of thought and free will. It is evolving. It is struggling to improve itself. My white America knows the wisdom of Frederick Douglass, who said, “No man can put a chain about the ankle of his fellow man, without at last finding the other end of it fastened about his own neck.”

My white America knows when it’s time to pick up a rifle and fight tyranny, even as it struggles with the desire to use the rifle in evil ways. My white America wants to see the time when we can put down the rifle for the last time.

My white America knows that its future is in becoming OUR AMERICA with no adjectives, embracing all, shouldered by those who are strong and caring for those who are weak.

Luke Visconti’s Ask the White Guy column is a top draw on DiversityInc.com. Visconti, the founder and CEO of DiversityInc, is a nationally recognized leader in diversity management. In his popular column, readers who ask Visconti tough questions about race/culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability and age can expect smart, direct and disarmingly frank answers.
