NusentinsainoRaces need some sense of humor, not pride. I hate seeing some Black is beautiful bumber stickers. We need something more of like I am the cream between two oreos.[/QUOTE] :lol: No shit. [quote=Aeroflot]To me, being proud of being white is like saying "thank god I am not black." Why would you be proud that you are white? A general is proud of a victory, not a defeat. So being proud of being white means that you are happier being that color than being black. Which in turn must mean that you think that blacks are inferior. I don't know, though. That idea just popped into my head a second ago. Please comment or correct me if I am wrong.
Having pride is okay, but I just don't understand where that pride is directed. When blacks say they're proud to be black, they're saying that they're proud of their roots, their culture (or Africa's culture, whatever), yet moreso I think they're proud of the progress that they have made; plus, they felt less-than-human for so long, and were treated like that, so really pride seems more useful than shame. Generally, I don't see the point in racial pride--my step-father was proud of being Polish, until he found out he was adopted, and it turned out he was, afterall, French. :D (Point is, he had no idea what 'race' he really was, and after a while, it just didn't matter.) I think pride should be about who you are, what you have done, not the color or hue with which you were born.
Where is the logic in being proud of an accident of nature? The color of a person's skin is an accident of nature, as is one's ethnicity, etc.
I don't know. And I'm feeling pride over myself because I'm multiethnical, or should I say Swede-Hungarian-Iraqi. Why I feel so I don't know. Maybe because I know I'm different. Maybe beacause with having parents of two different cultures living in a third culture lets me be part of things that other people can't (e.g. when Mikulás (Nikolai) comes and puts candy in the shoes during the winter :D). Because I stand out and ain't the same as others. I don't know, I just feel pride. Weird? I know. :uhm:
Jhawk906I hear "I am proud to be black" on TV all the time. Why can't someone be proud to be white?[/QUOTE]
because if you say "Im proud to be white", stupid political correct a-holes will say "you cant say that! it preaches racism and white superoirity!" :rolleyes:

Seriously. I get called a cracker from some of my black friends, and I take it as it is, a name in good fun. Its not mean spirited. Its a racial thing sure, but I dont give a crap. People need to lighten up nowadays and just chill. Everybody is so politicially correct that it makes the world completly boring.
I havemore nationalism towards my country than my race actually. It just so happens that almost 100% of the people at my home country are white. We got a few asians though, VERY few black people and very few muslums.

That's because you live in an area filled with Polish immigrants and their families. There's not much room for anyone else. ;)
NiteStrykerOk but thats black friends. Have you gone to a pure black community? (Ex: South Central LA?)
I live in one.
ZabI live in one.
Wich one of those colorfull types are you?
I'm no racist. I pity those who are because they are the ones who have developed all this hate over something that shouldn't be there. Someones skin color doesn't change what you are, nor does your religion, or language, etc. On the inside, we are identical, so whats the matter with what someone looks like? I'm not some hippie freak either, just a regular guy. So why be racist and be mad at something completely pointless? Just forget about what someone looks like and realize who they are as a person. god, that was a lil too deep, but w/e, its true.
My parents are huge racists. The only people they can stand to be around besides white people are asians and mexicans, mexicans because they can relate to them. Asians because...I don't know they just don't have problems with asians. They also hate people of other religions, including other sects of christianity. Anyone non roman catholic can burn in their book. They hate 'fags' as they call them. They hate morbidly obese people. And they hate retarded people. I used to hate all those people too, and I still dislike obese people and gay people in some ways, but I try to stay away from that kind of ignorance. When my parents talk about 'n!ggers' and 'towel-heads' I just shut my mouth. No use trying to get into an argument with them. And my parents are very white nationalist. If I marry anyone other than a white girl I will get disowned from the family. If they find out I am agnostic they will disown me from the family. If I so happened to be gay (which I'm not but this is just for reference), they would disown me from the family. Yeah it sucks growing up around this kind of ignorance, but my parents are really nice and good people until you break down their belief system.
