What exactly have whites had to fight for or struggle for?? Umm..nothing!! They moved from place to place slaughtering natives and taking over. Is that what you wanna celebrate?? If theres something specific for whites to celebrate then please enlighten me...
And i agree that whites dont really have a "culture" thats just my opinion.
So the Roman Empire, Ancient Greece, Marco Polo, Copernicus, Galileo, Tesla, Edison, The Wright Brothers Airplane, Henry Ford, Oppenheimer, Einstein, Von Braun...... None of these people and things they did are great accomplishments of white people?
But being black in america makes you "African"?
Did you know our Tax dollars now fund an "Ebonics" language program in the FBI
years and years ago before facebook sold out I was banned for having a white pride group. Notice how they arent there anymore and if they are they are watered down spayed and neutered by drunken wanabe frats. But somehow "Black Power" and "Brown Pride" get to stay?

And what does this have to do with loving your own race?
How many here in this thread have said anything about "lets kill us some blackies" or anything similiar?
How many of us have said "they were wrong for giving equal rights to others"?
Equal rights are EQUAL across the board. No "special rights" , "protected classes" or "hate crime situations".
THIS is the kind of crap the thread was written for.
I suppose the white / European bloodlines are the only ones that have EVER done anything wrong.
Contrary to some of the idiots here, I'm NOT a racist. If I had to risk my life to help a friend of a different race, the color of his skin wouldnt enter into it.
The qualifying factor would have been met. He / she was my friend and had earned the right.
The only thing in my mind would be "OH shiznit! My bud's in trouble!".edit on 3/12/10 by felonius because: add
Hispanic is NOT a race.
Hispanic (Spanish: hispano, hispánico) is a term that originally denoted a relationship to the ancient Hispania, a country that geographically coincided with the Iberian Peninsula. During the Modern Era, Hispanic sometimes takes on a more limited meaning, relating to the contemporary nation of Spain, one of the successor states of Hispania. The term is thus applied to Spanish-speaking countries, and to people in the United States who are of Spanish or Hispanic American origin. Cultural elements (Spanish names, the Spanish language, Spanish customs, etc) and people known as Hispanic can also be found in other areas that were formerly part of the Spanish Empire, such as in Equatorial Guinea in Africa, and the Philippines, Guam, and other areas of the former Spanish East Indies in the Pacific Ocean.

According to science, Hispanic is an ethnic group, not a race. Those within the Hispanic ethnic group are part of several different races, depending on the country their ancestors originated from.

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?
I realize that whites haven't had the best track record but neither have all these other cultures.
Whites are meant to bear the guilt of Slavery when it is a documented fact that Jews were at the Heart of the slave trade. (although you wont see this in a Speilberg movie). Newport, Rhode island was the center of the Slave trade, highest jewish population in America and the oldest synagogue in the US. (Brazil and the Carribean slave trade were also dominated by jews)
They have no problem celebrating their jewish heritage.
Hispanics can celebrate their culture freely and happily, even though their history is just a dark as whitey's with all their killing of natives in south and central america.
I'm just wondering if this guilt injected into the white race over and over again has a deeper agenda. Kinda like the catholic church instills guilt and fear to take away your power.
I think every culture should be able to celebrate their heritage freely. Just wondering why whites are not allowed by the powers that be.

There is nothing wrong with white pride.
They will tell you that it`s wrong to have white pride because our people have done horrific things in the past. All races have. All races continue to do horrific things, not just the white people, all people of all skin colours. I personally have never wronged anyone ever in my life because of skin colour. I either like you because you are a good person or dislike you because you`re not. Race is never a factor.
I don`t see any other race of people who make such an effort to help other races as the white people do. I sometimes think that the other races dislike white people because they are jealous of everything the white race has accomplished.
White people live in a world of double standards. You can have an all black television network but an all white television network would never fly. You can have a United Negro College Fund but a United Caucasian College fund would have people outraged. The real problem, is race based privileges. There will never be any true equallity as long as we continue to give advantages to one group of people and exclude another. If anything, it only encourages racism because the one group will resent the other because of the unfair advantage.edit on 3-12-2010 by Darkmask because: (no reason given)
