I said something as an answer in another post. I have been thinking about my answer, and the more I think about it, the more angry I become. Here is what I said...

"Why is it that when a Caucasian person speaks out against ideology they disagree with. Take action against behaviors they see as detrimental and destructive, generally they are labeled racist. If a non Caucasian person uses their same constitutionally protected rights in the exact same manner, they are referred to as an activist".

The the rights in the constitution are color blind. What happened to respecting someone else and their opinion even though you may not agree with it? Is this really what out society has been reduced to? Is the best way to change a perceived double standard to create another one and justify it based on racial bias?

Tell me what you think, I am very interested in hearing other points of view.

Do not get me started,


This covers most of it in my eyes...

I get fed up to the back teeth hearing why I should be ashamed of this and that etc etc, It is now socially acceptable to bash the white man. I live in a very multi cultural area and the racism I come up against is unbelieveable.

Because it is easier to call someone racist then address the problem as a whole. It cant be my races fault. If a race even accepts part of the blame it hurts their cause. That is why seeing one race (human) would solve half the problem. We would all realize we are in it together. Well most of us anyways.

Sorry to be blunt.
But phooey.

BLM and the Black Panthers, the two biggest "activist groups" in black culture are labelled racists every hour of the day.


& I've only ever been called racist by Zionists.
Never by anyone else.

& I stick up for white people.


Division, man.
You're lapping it up.

Can you please tell us what king of ideology you were disagreeing with?

I was thinking the same time the other day . We are all ONE race of HUMANS
Watch a room full of kids that are from all kinds of race and you will see that they will all play together because they see each other the same. ..hey we are all just kids and want to play.
If more people would realize that we are all just HUMANS then I agree that things would be better off.

This mindset only exists in America and can be blamed on the history that Africans were sold and used as slave labour by predominantly wealthy (white) people.

The founding fathers (white) were slave (African) owners.

Fast forward to today, and we see the role of the white fella as the racist in all facets of racial discussions - everyone else are victims and are allowed to be racist towards white folk.

In every other country they (any one of any skin color) are racist if they are derogatory to another race.

I do the things you say all the time and I am not called racist. You should be more specific.

You actually sound like a racist irritated that they get called out on being racist. Pardon me if I am incorrect.

The new think is no longer about laws and regulations but about what is politically correct. Being PC negates laws and regulations because that state of mind relates to the many causes of laws and regulations and why they are needed and why people sometimes disobey them. In other words, it gives them a break by saying, "I understand why you burnt down my pizza shop, you were angry and I needed to make it up to you so you burnt down my pizza shop. (Sorry, I can't recall the name of Spike Lee's movie, but that is what I got out of it.)

I love being an equal opportunity hater! It makes it fool proof to not believe a damn thing I hear about "equality" anymore! Don't get me wrong! There will be those who want to choke me for saying what I just said, but let me clarify a bit. I judge others by their behaviors and how they treat myself and others, not by the words that come out of their mouths telling me who and what they are and believe in. Actions, will call a damn liar out every time! No need for a lie detector!


The sad thing? All this nonsense has done is take away from those who actually are victims! No category needed.....

I have often expressed the same anger about this and it's hard to get people to see past their reverse racism/white guilt/whatever you call it, to see the point of the statement. If I state I'm proud of my heritage, I'm immediately labeled a supremacist and rqcist. If any other race states the same sentence, they're simply "in touch with their roots". I refuse to feel guilty for someone else's sins. It doesn't matter if my ancestors were slaves or slave owners, I wasn't there to influence the situation so my conscious is clear. I won't feel guilty for the sheer randomness of my consciousness being brought to life in this Caucasian body. I'm proud of many of the accomplishments of all races but I do like who I am as this Caucasian male. That doesn't make me a bigot or racist, an oppressor or an enabler. It makes me guilty of pride. I can sleep at night with THAT on my heart.

I agree with everything you said.

The only thing I've found that helps when it starts getting to me is thinking of this.

The black man bred us white folk until we developed a melanin deficiency. Now we are their slaves, leading a pale existence and an excuse for everything wrong in the world.

7 Little Known Benefits of Having Melanin Rich Skin


Dr. Frank Barr, pioneering discoverer of melanin’s organizing ability and other properties, theorizes in his technical work, Melanin: The Organizing Molecule:

As this melanin rich website points out,


“The hypothesis is advanced that (neuro)melanin (in conjunction with other pigment molecules such as the isopentenoids) functions as the major organizational molecule in living systems. Melanin is depicted as an organizational “trigger” capable of using established properties such as photon- (electron)- photon conversions, free radical-redox mechanism, ion exchange mechanisms, ion exchange mechanisms, and semiconductive switching capabilities to direct energy to strategic molecular systems and sensitive hierarchies of protein enzyme cascades. Melanin is held capable of regulating a wide range of molecular interactions and metabolic processes…”

At least we still have this guy!! This is OUR pond!!! LOL



Don't be a seal.


Don't call me white either. This video explains it well...


I wasn't brought here, I was born
Circumsized, categorized, allegiance sworn,
Does this mean I have to take such #
For being fairskinned? No!
I ain't a part of no conspiracy,
I'm just you're average Joe.

People continue to blame everyone else for their problems. Simple as that.

You appear to not have 'white guilt'. Yet, it seems you go about trying to make others get rid of theirs. How do you know they have it? How long have you been doing this for?

The problem is, that if you say "I have white pride" that is associated with racist groups, there is no getting around that. If you say "I like being white", why not? I like being white. I would be pretty freaked out if I woke up tomorrow and was a different color, I am sure those that are a different color from me would feel the same way.

Frankly. Be proud whatever you are. I'm proud of my European heritage and am vocal of it. That doesn't mean I go around screaming it, but I am not ashamed. For what reason?
