Your first paragraph sounds like it was written by David Duke. I don't think that line of thinking belongs in the ever evolving global world we are living in today. You have the right to your opinion but people will all end up inbred if they seriously try to segregate and keep themselves "pure" genetic diversity is necessary otherwise you will all end up sickly, diseased and deformed a la the hapsburgs.

Well there is a couple of problems with being proud of your "race". First its not a thing in Homo sapiens. When people talk race, they are generally talking ethnicity, and thus culture.
Second, lets pick on the idea of "a white race" or "white cultural pride". Which culture? Even in the United states there area bout 11 different cultures that could be said to be "white". Similarly there are different "black" cultures.
So pride in ones culture, really breaks down to what people think that culture is, as opposed to the actuality of it all.
SO yeah, there is a lot inherently wrong with the pride ins something that is not there. Similarly fearing other cultures because you don't want to be "influenced" is something from isolationism, to xenophobia.
