Radio host Rush Limbaugh has made some controversial comments before, and this time he is taking on white guilt.

Think Progress details that Limbaugh was prompted to speak out on slavery and racism after the George Zimmerman not guilty verdict and the outrage it prompted.

He believes that Caucasians, especially in the States, feel guilt over slavery even though they shouldn't. He notes that Caucasians have had fewer slaves than other races.

He also argues that, although slavery was widespread in Asia and Europe, the US was the only country to declare a war against it.

"White guilt is doing nothing for anybody, and white guilt is not solving anything," Limbaugh adds.

His statement is written as a response to college professor Anthea Butler's blog post about a "white racist god" governing the Zimmerman trial proceedings.
