I'm A Proud White Person by Foedus-Stamps I'm A Proud White Person by Foedus-Stamps
Why the hell is it racist to be proud that you're white, when it's not racist to snarl that you're proud to be black, etc.

Seriously. I'm not racist, at all. I wear Thor's hammer out of RELIGIOUS purposes, and I have no problem with people who hold themselves in a respectable manner.

But apparently it's racist of me to be proud of my heritage, and dislike those who make asinine fools of themselves. I don't get it. At all.

What, so I'm supposed to like a greasy thug, showing off his underwear and killing children in drive by shooting? The guys who murder innocent people for cash? If I have to love the whole package, then call me what you will, because I will never, ever respect those kinds of people.

To be perfectly honest, it really seems like a lot of blacks, Mexicans, etc play the whole "race card" WAY too much. It's like if someone sneezes they're called a racist.

Really, there's like a mentality shift where the blacks, Mexicans, etc are becoming racist themselves. :-/ I'm black and I don't like the direction we're headed. But none will listen to common sense and the truth.

Hatred is ironic because it doesn't discriminate on who it effects.

It's because of privilege. Whites are considered privileged in America, because we're the majority. Our history is the oppressor, not the oppressed. You can be proud of your individual heritages, (i.e. Polish, Russian, Greek) , I suppose, but "white" is something that wouldn't be too fair to celebrate.

It's racist to be 'proud' of being white as white identity was built upon racism/oppression. "asian" or "black" identity qas not built upon oppressing others.

That's a joke if I ever heard one. What about african americans selling their own people as slaves to gain a profit? What about North Korea that prize the incredibly wealthy and let the remainder of it's people starve? What about Boko Harem killing and kidnapping those who do not agree with their beliefs and being a different class of their race, and bringing true oppression to the innocent? What about the genocide in Uganda and the infamous Rwandan mass slaughter, all because they were not the same race? You are ignorant and blind to the facts around you. ALL races were built on oppression. It's just fact. To blame white people for all of the world's problems just makes you look pathetic and uneducated. 

Besides, you do realize that probably everyone you're talking to had absolutely nothing to do with the shit that happened over 100 years ago right (AND the shit of today's problems too!)? It's like saying all black's are drug-dealing thugs because most street gangs are black, and all germans are nazi's because the nazi's were german. I mean, it's so ridiculous; get over yourself.

Again, they did not sell their people or terrorize shit in the name of 'the black race' and DPRK was racist in the 'koreans are the most prefect people'. Boko Haram is religious terrorists, not race-based. Uganda and Rwanda were ethnically based genocides, not racial.

The development of 'white' as an identity was based off of genocide and slavery in the 'New World'. Face it, given Europeans identified as something else before being 'white' in the new world (i.e. 'french' or 'alsatian' or whatever) its hard to deny.

It doesnt matter if modern whites doesnt do that, their identity still was forged using slavery and genocide.

Every race of people has flaws and struggles. And no one race is completely innocent of shitty things. Yes, the African Americans were enslaved. But that ended in time. Besides, the Americans are not the only ones who have fucked up in the past. And I think mainly I can say I'm proud to be everything I am such as Irish, Scottish, French, and English, I don't know why it's wrong to be so proud of that, of my heritage, even if I am white, which I am.

Yes, every 'race' has flaws and struggles and is complicit in shit. But again, your racial (not ethnic) identity was built upon shitting upon people. There's a reason people don't go bugshit insane as saying "European" identity for example even if European identity is sometimes code-word for white nationalism/white power. Scottish/Irish/French/English identity was not built upon 'shitting on other people'. It was not a social construction to keep people in power at the expense of others.

black identity was built upon being enslaved and colonized by whites. pan-asianism was a similar reaction to european colonialism. Hence Mao Zedong isnt dissed in mainland china as he unified the chinese civilization and expelled European colonialists.

Also there were whites who went deep into Africa to capture slaves themselves as opposed to buying slaves.

African black people sold their own people to slavery and African kingdoms grew in power because of that. European slave traders bought them from native slave owners. Slavery was also common in Islamic world, and muslims captured and sold both Africans and Europeans to slavery. The word 'slave' comes from slav, because for centuries, the Slavic people of Eastern Europe were the primary source of slaves for Europe and the Near East. More than 1 million Europeans were captured by Barbary pirates and sold as slaves in North Africa and the Ottoman Empire between the 16th and 19th centuries.

Slavery began with civilization. Slavery has existed throughout history and practically every country on every continent experienced some kind of slavery. Hell, it still exists in some places around the world, like by Arab slave-traders in the interior of Africa.

People acting like American slavery is the only slavery that ever happened.

African Kingdoms did not grow in power to slavery. They grew before te growth of European feeder raids and divide-and-conquer. Also, African "Slavery" was different than European slavery. Also, Europeans did go capture slaves themselves, it was not all intermediary-based. And Arabs are still white, as well as many Turks, so white people enslaving each other and black people is not exactly distracting from my claims.

Slav does not originate from "Slave". That is a common misconception which many legit Slavs apparently find annoying. I didn't say anything about "American slavery being the only slavery that ever happened" however it was the main thing which prompted the formaion of 'white' identity. Hell, White nationalists write such in their book (I think "Towards the White Republic" mentions such)

Mao Zedong isn't dissed in China because he established the so-called "People's Republic".

Welcome to many forms of nationalism, as a lot of nationalism is based in opposition to 'others' - often with a tinge of victimhood.

Also, the Portugese were the first to get slaves more directly. The Belgians did not practice slavery in the American context, just forced labor and chopping off hands :/

People that call you racist for being proud of your origin obviously don't know what racism is. Racism is when you're offending one or more races for being the race they are.

Being proud of one's origin is pure patriotism, and there's nothing wrong with that! :)

It's not racist to be proud to be white, but of course people are going to call you racist - this is worded with an obvious subtext. You say that you're proud to be white, where as black people aparently SNARL that they're proud to be black. You make them sound like wolves or something. You're proud to be white because it means you're not "a greasy thug, showing off his underwear and killing children in drive by shooting" - I guess I'm to assume you mean "a black person" by this sentence, then? It's common sense where this stops being white pride and starts being racism.
I agree with the guy above who said being accused of racism has become like being called a witch - it is a term thrown around too liberally and people get hysterical over it.
But overall, I personally am not convinced that being part of any race is something to be proud of. As someone said above, it's sheer chance under what circumstances you are born. You could have just as easily been born a starving Ethiopian. Why be proud of something that has nothing to do with you? It's the same as being proud of under which star sign you're born, or which year of the Chinese zodiac, or how many moles you have on your left arm. You should be proud of the things you've achieved, or the moral choices you've made, not any of this BS.

It's because of white privilege. White people have had power and special treatment in this world for hundreds and almost thousands of years. When anyone in history has touted white pride, minorities and races that don't have it as easy get the very short end of the stick. The only way to fix it, to not be part of the problem, is to accept you have this privilege. Accept it and use it to change the world around you. Don't make it about being proud of your race, but make it a matter of being proud of being human.
