The original and only Black Panthers are good. The ones with the title are not Black Panthers. The Ku Klux Klan is evil though.

I've been thinking about this alot lately. Why can every other culture celebrate their culture in the US. but if whites want to celebrate their culture or if they are proud of their heritage, they are automatically a racist?

you sound so racist it isnt even funny. That why is there a "black history month" mentality is so over-used. The reason it exist because the contrary is amplified. Every month in school is white history month. Its apparent you are educated in this foolery because you said it yourself the biggest discoveries come from N.A. and Europeans, which is so untrue. You have much to learn about the REST of your human family.
Too many proud lions can spoil the pride.

This is a rather typical confused argument ...
I am white and I do celebrate my Greek heritage and culture like many folks honor theirs, and there's obviously nothing really wrong with that other than the fact that hopefully one day we can all get past arbitrary lines on maps. Same goes for faiths as most flocks celebrate their religion on a regular basis.
The only reason, if any, to celebrate one's heritage relative to skin tone is if said skin tone has been historically used as a vehicle of oppression such as in the case of African Americans or Native Americans. As in recent history it has been folks of pink skin that have been doing most of the oppression there's no reason to 'celebrate' being white for being white, unless of course one wishes to celebrate oppression. Pride is relevant only as a remedy for having said pride being taken away as a means to subjugate. Not some perceived wrong that lot of 'white pride' folks declare, blaming others for their own condition, but actual subjugation.
Like I said, hopefully one day none of these egoic abstractions will be necessary.
