See this is the problem. Blacks had a future! It wasnt until The whole world thought they could capitlize off of land that was said to be owned by the gods not man.
So what you are saying is if a person is proud of being white they are a racist, and any other race, creed or color it is all good and wholesome?
Every white person did not descend from slave owners, just as every white person doesnt descend from 'the' wicked europeans that thought it was okay to pollute the world.
So how can you be offended? If that is or was my history, your completely right, that is not something to be proud of. But with that being said(typed), you have the undertones of someone who subscribes to this idea of supremacy because you automatically associate yourself with the people that corrupted our(americas)doctrines.
You can be white, and have pride, lets not be juvenile, I did not say "you cant be proud of being white". But you, being a white male, can be proud of so many other things, why would you associate your lineage with wickedness.
Every white person is not the same, why would you make it seem like your related to them.
There were free whites just as it was free people of color that did not subscribe to the idea of slavery and the descendants of these people helped the descendants of the slaves march for freedom.
I totally disagree. First and foremost believing and subscribing to the idea or concept/theory of race is what makes someone a 'racist'. That is the start. From there people begin to propagate false knowledges and sciences stating superiority within a single race. --peace-love--for everyone!
Why? I mean, we are the same species, but we are not all the same "breed" (like dogs or any other animal species). I mean we can classify racial categories by visible traits like skin color, hair, facial features and cranial proportions. Thats biology 101, its not being racist
always looks at me like I owe them something for those 500 years of slavery or something. It wasnt me... get over it.
still, I love to see how a black can have a "black pride day" and discos "just for blacks" and "black power" and "black music" and its all fine, and if I even dare to suggest a "white pride day" they call me a freakin racist.
If I open a disco just for "whites" they'll call me a racist and start blabbing crap about apartheid and racial segregation. And everyone knows that "white power" and "white music" is neo-nazi crap right?
Like I said, get over the abuse and the slavery and all that because they're not the slaves and it wasnt me to enslave them. I'm sick of apologizing, I'm proud of my race... erm, "clinal gradation". Proud of the greatest empires the world has seen, proud of all the cultural and scientific breakthroughs we did, proud that the greatest minds the world has ever seen were white, hell I can be proud that the first man in space and walking on the moon were white. I'm proud of it, just like they're proud of their race for whatever reasons. Like the chinese HAVE to be proud of their fantastic heritage. Like the arabs have to also. And yes... even the germans .
Ok.....so that is why so many have no future today? throughout history the strong over came the weak. "Today" life as a black person can be good or bad...its up to them.
An who would care if they did...
Many slaves were sold to Dutch traders by Africans who had them as slaves already from wars, so who is the bad guy here and whose heritage had so much wickedness in it? I don’t know nor do I care.

I reckon it's because white man made the gun, got immense power and wealth through it and had to morally justify it. Fortunately the bible was at hand and Kane of the Abel fame was a baddie and was made black for it (I'm sure this was really biblical politics for some war or other) and White man said, yup that will do and set out to associate black with anything convenient. Dunno, was White Man racist before the gun??

If I'm Paisley and I don't have any white friends, who cares? I probably just have more in common with my "own people." But if I'm white and don't have any Paisley friends, I'm a racist.
Suppose I'm a business owner, and I have 2 job applicants. One is a black kid, a gang member with a criminal record and a rude attitude who comes to the interview dressed in gang colors, and the other is a clean-cut white kid who was in the honor society and student government. Which one am I going to pick? I don't know - it'll be a very tough decision and I may have to choose neither and look for someone else because I'm afraid of being hit with bad publicity or even a lawsuit if I pick the white kid.
(like my high school classmate, a black boy I deeply respected and admired in spite of our personal rivalry because he beat me to be class valedictorian by a fraction of a GPA point)

It's because all whites are highly educated, very wealthy, live in gated communities, are adverse to substance abuse, and all whites feel that the world owes them every advantage because the past indicates so.
