Yes...but my point was that this is how ALL other races would see it, because they are racist towards whites in general...



What? I'm sorry but that statement is a harsh, rascist generalization. Whether you like it or not, the way you're posting shows a lot about your antiquated views on equality.


Then go start a white pride march . . . we will see how antiquated his thinking his, and how naive your view is.

I never knew it was a competition.

Gays and Blacks were based around rights, which is different. And "gay" is not a heritage either. Plus, I can understand why you've shocked a few on ATS when you said different races were not equal, not a common phase in this part of town.

Your posts are strange too, you back away very quickly and keep telling us you are not a white supremists.

Why the fear?

Sadly,
Last time I checked; Parliament and Government still had a white-British majority and minority celebrations were not national holidays in the UK.

That is why the BNP are becoming an anti-immigration party because the racial tatic does not work anymore.

I understand what your saying dude, but unfortunately thats not how the world works...

These groups exist, and will continue to exist...

So I am only wondering why everyone is allowed to do how they please basically except whites...

Black, hispanic, asian comedians can all make fun of other races, including whites...but oh my god, beware to the white comedian who dares make fun of blacks and other races...

I have come across white comedians who have done this...but only to hear later that they were "reprimanded" in some way for the content of their show... ??

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'll try to explain it my friend,
It is the way that we evolve as a society, it takes time and it has growing pains. Right now this is how it works. As soon as Blacks and other minorities get on equal footing than their actions will be viewed as racist and it will fade out. BUT just like we have neo nazi's and KKK we will have minority groups like that too.
For example with the change. You pointed out that comedians can rip on their own race and whitey too. Well, haven't you noticed that Black comedians are getting hammered for you the N###er word?
Some crazy white folk think that the pedulum will swing so far that we become a minority....is that how it has worked in history? no.
As we progress it won't be cool for any race to be all prideful. We may enjoy our geographical heritage but not based on race. That is going to die out like it should but not over night and you and I and others are just going to have to see the big picture and not be so short sighted, ignorant, and myopic about feeling like we are going to become a minority.
I doubt I did a decent job at explaining this.
1) racial pride is devisive. it will run its course but we have to expect that those that have suffered for so many generations are going to, and should be allowed some leway as they adjust to being treated equal.
Don't get sucked into feeling like a victim. But above else, don't get sucked into being one of those people that will be left behind the natural advancement of our species, it will just make you one of those bitter dudes that think the invention of the car was evil and blacky should go back to the fields. Because they are the ones why this process has taken so damn long!

Most of these groups of people (gay is not a heritage, by the way), overcame great odds to be successful members of society in a world that was run by predominately white (discriminatory) males. That is what most of their "pride" is about.

The Asian and Hispanic cultures that wish to celebrate their respective heritages are usually doing so because they are far from home and want to bring some of their traditions and cultures into the community where they currently reside.

I would guess you're not big on the whole "melting pot" idea...

When I first read your post, I could understand you...but now I'm just confused. The more information you reveal, the more I think you're trying to convince yourself that you're not a racist.

Just the perspective from the outside looking in....

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.


Well that's ok then isn't it.


In that case, why can't we have white pride, which is really European pride? Where we lump all the European nations together because we have no idea where our ancestors are from.

If whites were to march down the street screaming "white power" as the blacks do currently, or screaming "white pride" it would turn into a national controversy and everyone would be labeled racist...or neo nazi etc..

Am I as a white man now supposed to be "ashamed" of my heritage ?

Am I not allowed to be proud of who I am ethnically ? But every other race is ... ?


So there are blacks currently marching down the streets screaming, "black power"? I must have missed them, but I will tell you that there are multitudes of whites who do exactly what you've just castigated blacks for doing - which they don't even do anymore in the first place. If this were the 70's then you'd have a valid point. You could make an argument for organizations like the NAACP, but then again their mission is to achieve equality and correct social injustices (or so they claim); they aren't running around claiming white people are inferior or things of that nature. There's a difference between celebrating your heritage and culture, and just running around carrying bullhorns and calling people Niggers and Spics. Factions whose sole purpose is to preach white "Supremacy" are justifiably vilified in my opinion. You can be proud of being white without using it as a tool to lash out and belittle other races. Surely you have a very warped sense of reality.

Have pride in your "heritage". Who is telling you not to? As long as it isn't used to suppress or oppress others, then you should not have to endure any criticism or made to feel like you've done something wrong. Don't just turn your sentiments of "pride" into feelings of negativity towards other races. I'll pose this question to you: Exactly how would you want to exhibit your 'white pride' if you do so at all?

I have many inner demons trying to come out fighting and screaming my friend, it is hard keeping them contained, I have much hatred inside me, yet I also have alot of love...

I contradict myself constantly with my own values and morals, one day I am happy, the next I feel like becoming hitler...

I think I might be possessed

No,

I am just pointing out (which other members have noticed too), your posts are getting more and more confusing. It is obvious you are hiding something from us because your agruments are very flawed.

Just looked around on ATS and I cannot see a thread where someone has directly called you a racist for being proud of your heritage.

And, you said your white proud rally would look like, and I quote from this thread;



Exactly...it would look like a typical KKK rally...but if that is what the other races think or assume, then they are in fact being racist towards whites...

I thought you were concerned about white pride? Now it's about white people not being allowed to make jokes about minorities (which they do anyway)? You sound silly.

I remember Kramer getting reprimanded for calling an audience member of his a Nigger, if that's what you're refering to?
