R.I.P. Walter E. Williams 1936-2020


Walter E. Williams 1936-2020

“But let me offer you my definition of social justice: I keep what I earn and you keep what you earn. Do you disagree? Well then tell me how much of what I earn belongs to you – and why?”
― Walter E. Williams, All It Takes Is Guts


Born in poverty, raised by a single mother in the projects of North Philadelphia, a college drop-out, he overcame all types of adversity to become a nationally renowned professor, economist and columnist. https://t.co/LKWo6ZMv4Z


With his characteristic generosity and benevolence Dr. Williams issued a full amnesty and pardon to all peoples of the Occident which in part reads:

Therefore from this day forward Americans of European ancestry can stand straight and proud knowing they are without guilt and thus obliged not to act like damn fools in their relationships with Americans of African ancestry.

The United States of America would be a much better place for our families and children and their children if more guilt-ridden White people would accept Dr. Williams’ offer of amnesty and pardon and got on with their lives.

If you feel any responsibility and guilt for slavery centuries ago and/or the current incarceration of criminals (those who commit crimes) assuage your precious feelings by downloading the Amnesty and Pardon Certificate and display it proudly.
