by white guilt I mean the guilt that a people have from realizing their part in a system set up by the previous iteration of colonizers and oppressors. There's no non-white counterpart to that. Therefore - there's no non-white counterpart to flipping that concept into action instead of self indulgence.

Is that clearer?

I do say everyone plays a part in the responsibility - I think you may have missed that part - or are choosing not to see it. Re-read. I'm not saying non-white people shouldn't feel responsible for making the world better. I'm saying there's no non-white equivalent to white guilt or white responsibility. It's distinctive and yes, I'mma draw that line. Based on history, not skin color.
