Turns out this has been a thing since 1978-ish. Though too keep things on the neutral path I am going to go with wiki again, so that it is just the info without leaning one way or the other (I hope), just the facts. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_guilt https://drum.lib.umd.edu/handle/1903/10333 https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/0146167202238377 And Urban dictionary doesn't paint it in a good light either, and it looks like it is more about rejecting ones culture for that of the implied culture they feel guilty about wronging. https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=white%20guilt So overall the concept is not all the good for either side of the aisle. And in a way it really isn't doing the original Civil Rights Movement any favors, but the exact opposite.
