MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews decided to speak for “all White  people” and apologize for racism in the United States and was attacked by White people on Twitter for his efforts.

Matthews was speaking with guests Michael Steele, former Republican National Committee chairman and MSNBC political analyst, and Val Nicholas, vice president and creative director at NBC News.

After listening to the two men exchange war stories on being Black men in America, and drawing comparisons between their experiences and the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, a clearly upset Matthews offered a heartfelt apology:

“I’ll just tell you one thing,” the Hardball host told his two guests. “And I’m speaking now for all white people, but especially [the ones] who’ve tried to change the last 50 or 60 years. And a lot of them really tried to change, and I’m sorry for this stuff. That’s all I’m saying.”

After #WhiteTwitter became aware of his empathetic reaction, they closed ranks and slammed Matthews for his kindness.

The current bet on the table is whether or not Matthews walks back his statement. Until then, well done, sir.
