It's ok to have Black History Month, MLK day, B.E.T. channel, Blacks Only dating sites and the list goes on, but let a white man be proud of what the race has accomplished and stand back, because heads are gonna explode.
I am, none the less born of persons whose ancestors were abroad in the British Isles, in the mists of time and by all accounts, it is likely that a significant part of what went into my construction, came from pre-roman Britain.
Of that, I am intensely proud. However, I am proud of that because I find things about the ancient Britons interesting, laudable, noble and elemental. I find much of what has happened since the Romans inserted their supremacist nonsense into our national construction utterly deplorable, and the effects are still being felt now.

I don't care, really. If someone wants to be proud, then be proud. If someone wants to think a certain way, they should be free to think a certain way.
If you're white and want to celebrate it, then you should be free to do so. If you're any color and you want to celebrate it, then you should be free to do so.
The project is "not a celebratory endeavor" but an "effort to change our campus climate," the school said on its website.
"Whiteness refers to the construction of the white race, white culture, and the system of privileges and advantages afforded to white people," a definition on the school's event page reads.
