Well, I don't know much about Australian history, but here in the U.S., we do that because our ancestors owned theirs for hundreds of years. Oh, and stole their land and raped their wives.

So, I get where you're coming from, but I think our countries share different heritages when it comes to our minorities.

But, like I said, I'm ignorant about Australian history. Feel free to enlighten me.

The first slaves in Australia were white people...

The first slaves in America were white people...

Yea I would like to see a "WET" or white entertainment TV, but that would certainly never happen. If you tried to start something like that people would come un-glued.

And before this thread gets completely out of hand...

Refer back to the original topic of this post...

It is not about slavery or this race is better than that race etc...

We are supposed to all be "equal" yet everything shows the contrary...

Every other minority is to receive special treatment of some kind...how is this equal in any way ?

So what is your point? That because many of the first settlers of the American continent were indentured 'white' people is excuses the much longer lived and heinous treatment others received, namely Africans?

I am not sure you realize this but your posts are showing a consistent bias.

also honestly i think why other races have pride marches or parades is cause to show that they have overcome from sh*t thye have dealt with in their lives


Indians, mexicans, Jews, blacks, gay have all been # on so much

oh i also guarantee that there are gay skinheads, seriously

and people who are even mixed but pick the part of them that is white and goes with the flow

i look very white but Im italian, basque, german (which means Im very good looking, lol) kidding, but my last names origin is scots, go figure

I claim nothing

pride always comes before a fall

Oh, I agree totally. BUT, they were white people owned by white people. I suppose one could seek restitution from his ancestors' owners even if he was white. Maybe I should look into that...


And, please don't think I'm totally disagreeing with your original statements. I'm just merely adding my mortal opinions...

Yes !! thats about right......there should be no segregation...we all blled the same colour ...and we all go to the toilet ..very silly to me!!...just one section imposing their own values...

But you can't go to a sports centre and say we want a whites, hindu, budhist swimming ...in the UK its the voice that shouts louder that gets the rights!!

We all bleed red. What of a human heritage. You can be proud of all good things done by all good people. Color coded pride divides i think. I understand your point Soldier.

Edit: Shuck you beat me to the thread with the same thoughts by a minute!

I really do not understand why you need to make a thread about this topic. I have never seen you being called a racist at ATS and if you are proud of your white heritage then why the need to tell us?

I'm not being rude, but most people at ATS probably do not care.

Right...ok i get it...

So in 20 years from now after the white man is done being blamed for EVERYONE else's misery, we will then have a right to stand up for ourselves again and take to the streets to show that we have "overcome" our struggle with what we as a white race have inflicted upon the world...

yeah that pretty much sums it up, kidding

i just dont get the point of sqwaling about it

do you honestly feel the need to shout out how proud you are to be a scot?

really?

why not just be proud and go on living?
do you have alot of time on your hands?

i for one have never understood pride

sure ive been proud of things ive accomplished but i dont go around screaming it in a sense

this is such a touchy subject

you should start screaming scots pride as white is too diverse

i can almost guarantee that all your relatives are NOT of one race at all

sad thing is no way to prove it

The point is ..some sections are segregating themselves from society ...by cliaming themselves to be victims...in the UK we rarely hear of the chinese, africans, indians, poles pushing their agenda...its always the muslims!!

And they are adept in using our systems!! thats the truth from what I see !

Right, sorry, my bad..

I am white, so i am not allowed to talk about this subject...

I am not someone who goes around promoting white pride, I am not someone who goes around saying we are a better race etc..

But recently alot of things have come to my attention which is why I started asking myself...is this really happening...and why ??


This thread is about WHY ???

Well now that would depend on which white family you were proud of sharing a heritage with now wouldn't it?

What is the point of being proud of your heritage anyway? customs and traditions.. NOT the color of your skin.. So as a focal point you are, as I would say, .. only looking 'skin deep' .. and it seems to serve your purpose of defending yourself against being a racist, where you don't feel you are racist where you are presupposing you are.. .. ?

I think as a human race we all have way too much time on our hands philosophizing and not enough time DOING beneficial things.

You probably wont like this, but most white people who are proud
to be white are most likely racist types that
feel threatened by non whites. I never see this complaint
coming from educated and wealthy whites.

What is white? You mean european? A lot of Iranians have white skin.
Are they white? Would they be allowed to join your white pride parade?

You are allowed to have a specific nationality parade,
such as German, Irish, Greek.
Greeks are white, they have parades and festivals, its all based on
being Greek though, nothing about skin color.

Also, What people mean by black pride is really African pride.
And they lump all African nations into the term black because
most blacks have no clue which country their ancestors are from.
Thats the only time I ever hear someone using color to refer to a group
of people, other than whites. I never hear someone saying
brown power, yellow power. Mexicans refer to their nationality, so
do Chinese, Puerto Ricans, and so on.
