How come being proud of your race is okay, unless your white? Whites who are proud get branded as racist?

Isn't this prevelant attitude itself extremely racist and discriminatory toward whites, how are race relations ever expected to honestly make any kind of headway fight racism with racism?!? or reverse discrimination? I think being an educated poor white male that current attitudes and "politcal correctness" on racism only breed more hate and discontent, you don't treat a minor cut with an amputation! I understand americans of african descent have a higher standard of living in america then thier racial counterparts anywhere else in the world! One could look at this and say slavery was the best way for africans to achieve thier highest standard of living? The pendulum always goes way to far the other way!

You can thank MLK, the NAACP, the ACLU, Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, and all the politicians that set up the laws so minorities can freeload. All the above are ripping off their own race, making "mountians out of Mouse Turds", and in general keeping things racially stirred up... More

I am not proud of being white, it's just the color of your skin.. I am proud of being an American and I am proud of my Country

Well I donno. I guess it is because we were the oppressors of yesteryear. I am not sure why anyone would be proud of the color of their skin. I am white and that fact is just another minor detail of who and what I am.

No one should be proud to be one race or the other. It indicates that they believe their race is superior, regardless of what anyone says. Personally , I am repelled by anyone who says 'I'm _____ and I'm proud... More

Because there is indeed a double standard....but I feel that the color of your skin shouldn't define who you are.

I don't understand the concentration on race at all. So what, we're different, thank god. How boring would this world be if we we're all the same.

Whites of every type get branded as racists just for being white, not for being loud and proud. I've been nicely trying to explain to people on here that racism will never be gone as long as it's okay to discriminate against whites, but I'm usually ignored completely or given many thumbs down. Apparently it's not PC to... More

Yes, it's a racist attitude. Folks who have never lived in the hard days of slavery, deem to judge folks who are white, because of the history of their ancestor's. They have not suffered, as their forefathers have, nor have we committed astrocities towards them, or their kinfolk... More

You already know the answer. There is a double standard against whites in this country that's sickening. Anything any other race does, if whites do it they're suddenly racist. And it's not reverse-discrimination, it's simply discrimination. Blacks have many things especially for their race and no other... More

I am sick of this crap as well!!! I think white people need to stop appologizing for stuff they didnt do. For instance, I was not alive during the days of slavery, so therefore I am not responsible for it! I was not alive during the days the nazis ruled Germany, so therefore I am not responsible for the holocaust. I... More
