Racial pride is thinly veiled racism as far as I´m concerned and is guaranteed to keep us going nowhere


Cool I agree with you, I think racism itself is part of the divide and conquer strategy. I changed the color of my font cause I just realized you could. No better thread to do it in

So you're saying there is no European Culture? Whites have had no hardships? hmm interesting ok.


How difficult is it to understand 'WHITE IS NOT A CULTURE'?
But since you want to talk Europe, Europe is comprised of different nations with their own cultures. Plus you can be European and have different skin hues. In Britain alone there are people of different colour born and bred British with regional accents who consider themselves British.
And who is saying that being white makes one immune to hardship?
Sounds like you missed your time ie the Hitler Youth...

Saying race doesn't play a factor in anything and we are all equal is very unrealistic. Skin color itself isn't the key factor, but genetics do make different races stand out from others in certain areas. It is safe to say if you pick a group of blacks at random from the population and put them up against a randomly selected group of whites in a series of basketball games, the blacks will win most of them. They will also usually beat whites and other peoples in most sports involving running. Whites are usually stronger on average then other people, this is shown throw dominance in strength based sports, powerlifting, wrestling, strongest man competitions, but if you talk about other areas whites stand out in like when it comes to intelligence, then suddenly thats off limits and you're racist. Test scores show that only some Asian groups like Japanese, Chinese, Koreans, are comparable to whites. The combination of strength and intelligence best explain why European Nations have always been dominant, ever since ancient times we have always been able to field the best armies. Jewish people are also smart but tend to specialize in dominating finance and media, not racist, but statistics and statements from Jews coroborate this. That doesn't mean we should have discrminiation laws or anything, just don't let political correctness get in the way of being realistic.

This thread is really intriguing to me.

I am an early 20's, white, American male.... are you people saying I am completely devoid of culture, and can not celebrate anything?

White doesn't count.

American doesn't count.

I can not stuff myself into one of the many cultures of Europe, because I simply would not fit in.

Are white Americans truly culture-less?

If one is going to be proud of their skin color, ..... that shows me they probably haven't accomplished alot in life, ..... and just need a reason to have pride.


That is right...you can have a black community center...you can have a muslim community center...latino...jew...but not white
every culture can exclude white people but white people cannot

its call reverse racisime

I prefer my white men when it comes to romance.
No one in the world can say that is racist or exhibiting white pride.
It's just personal preference.
It's about the only freedom we have left in this crazy world.
Who we go to bed with/have relationships with or marry.

There is no such thing as "reverse racism". If a white is racist towards a black it is racism, if a black is racist against a white, it is still racism.

I'm of the same age group and I am faced with the same dilemma. Constantly being told I don't have a culture because I'm a White American. Which is all fine and good, I don't need that sort of culture. I like to think of culture as being a well rounded, knowledgable individual.. More in the sense of being "cultured'. I think everyone has a family-type culture which is different from family to family but it is different for everyone. I don't need to lump myself into the same group as a millions of other people who share my skin color or place of origin. I'm an individual, there may be people out there who believe the same things I do, but that doesn't mean we are all the same, or that we all practice the same traditions/past times. It is fine to be proud of heritage in culture, but in many ways it is disrupting too. I'm not upset about not having a said "culture".

And to all of those people saying "White" can't be a culture because it is merely a skin color.. Then how do you define "Black Culture"? Why can the color black have a culture but the color white cannot? Just a side thought. It's the same thing.

Or in a more generalized question. What will you debate when you realize it is us vs them? When humans are humans, and it is the Earth against the universe?

...I think every culture should be able to celebrate their heritage freely. Just wondering why whites are not allowed by the powers that be....


The answer is very simple.

TPTB needs to keep the "Unwashed Masses" fighting amongst themselves. One way is to stir up racism. Have you notice how much more you are hearing about racism now??? Could it be because TPTB wanted to pass "Obamacare", "Food Safety", "Cap & Trade" and Bank bailouts WITHOUT the "Great Unwashed" banding together to stop the march toward a ONE WORLD COMPANY LIMITED?

This thread made me take a deep look at my family so to speak.So let's start with my parents both white. Now my stepfather is a black englishman. I love to hear him talk. My step mother is jewish chinese. Yes she was adopted. My husband is half Yakama(by the way that is tribe here in good ol Nortwest) and half white. Thats just the start. My older sister has 2 biracial children. One black and one Indian as in Asia. My other sister is married to a mexican( they met in Mexico while she was doing humanitarian deeds) and both her children are also biracial.That's just the start.One cousin is half japenese and my other cousins are part Iranian. As you can imagine my family reunions are quite interesting. One things for damn sure we don't care about each others race or religon or whatever. Although we do get into some great debates. Our culture is our family. The great melting pot that is America. I take pride in my family not my race. And if you want add fuel to this my uncle is a pretty famous drag queen in seattle and his boyfriend is black.

Great question from both of you. Whenever these conversations happen it's good to know there are people out there who are loopy enough to take another view. Please show me ANY proof of aliens, ANY.
Thanks,

race and culture are both politico/social concepts, that people constantly use as the term suits them.

Many in Africa distinguish between various "races" that white americans cannot detect. Likewise the difference between serb, croat, and bosnian (all white look-alikes, ftmp).

People in the US usually mean "Scotch/Irish-German" culture when they say white. Almost all Americans and Canadians know this, and are being disingenuous if they say they don't.

White (USA) culture includes elements of other cultures. BBQ, gulash, cornbread, etc. But black culture is the same, even in Africa: Swahili contains lots of Arabic vocabulary.

* * * *

Incidentally, if you ever look at personal ads, whites are finding code phrases to let each other know they are white. Look for "interested in Keltic music" and "Renaissance Festival" as clue-ins. "Protestant" is another.

A star for you, very well said. I just find it funny that our particular demographic isn't allowed a culture ha.

I am not upset about it though, I know who I am, and I celebrate that daily.

We all have skeletons in our ancestral history, no one is innocent, not whites, blacks, asians, native Americans, nor are Christians, Jews, Muslims, Pagans, no one. The key is to discover your cultural heritage and to celebrate it accordingly, leaving the past where it belongs. With that, I bid you "Slán go fóill"


You can say that again.

What everyone seems to forget is we are the children of the SURVIVORS. That means our ancestors were the meanest, nastiest, most cunning SOBs around. And THEY are the ones who mated with the women to produce children.

Ever hear of Genghis Khan?



Some 800 years ago, a fearsome, charismatic warrior named Temujin united the nomadic tribes of Mongolia. In 1206, he assumed the title Genghis Khan, often translated as emperor of emperors, and started invading surrounding territories. Massacring many of the people that he conquered, so as to leave no enemies and to strike fear in would-be foes, Genghis Khan ultimately controlled a massive empire ranging from today's Afghanistan across China. His male descendants continued the dynasty for many generations.

It appears that Genghis Khan left a mark on more than history: His influence may persist in the DNA of men today. According to an international team of geneticists, about 1 in 12 men in Asia--and therefore 1 in 200 men worldwide--carry a form of the Y chromosome that originated in Mongolia nearly 1,000 years ago. Today's unusual prevalence of this chromosomal variant is most likely the result of Genghis Khan's military success, the investigators say. Even more provocatively, the researchers suggest that Genghis Khan himself had this particular version of the Y.

findarticles.com...

So much for "White Supremacy" good old PROLIFIC Temujin has you beat in the only game that counts - the proliferation of your genetic material!


Oh, And do not tell the liberals that, It kinda takes the wind out of their racism whine. Must not hurt their feelings.
