It`s only okay to say you`re proud to be black, because the mixing of various African tribes during slavery makes it more difficult for the descendants today to trace their ancestry. So Asians can`t really say they`re proud to be Asian, because they know where their ancestors come from, as European-Americans know where theirs come from. I`m proud to be German-Italian.

@botfly We`re glad you`re not a Brit too. Personally, I think it`s a little stupid to be proud of something you have no control over. I have a blue birthmark on my wrist, I am gluten intolerant and I am well endowed. These are NOT things to be proud of. Be proud of something you or someone else has gone out of their way to make come about.

But chordates and echinoids are (probably) related. You are just racist against arthropods.

Well - being white is awesome, because things are easier for us - but I didn`t really have much to do with that. I guess I am glad that my ancestors married and procreated within their racial demographic? Good on for them.

No - what I am most proud of is my attached earlobes. So many idiots in the world have earlobes that hang down like lazy pieces fleshy fruit. Disgusting, really.

Also, I can curl my tongue. Those who can`t are just freaks of nature and should be cleansed out of the gene pool.

@collegebound: Yes, BUT people used to be all concerned about "different races" meaning Italian, French, Ukranian, German & etc... See? They used to be "mixed marriages if a Russian married a Norwegian! NOW they`re all "white" but not long ago things were different.

Things are getting better, overall.

CrakrJak: "I`m proud to be a `mutt`, part Welsh, Native American, German and Dutch. America is a melting pot. Nothing wrong with being proud, just don`t be a dick about it."

Ok, who are you, and what have you done with the real CrakrJak?

I`ve never understood why anyone would be proud of their race. It`s not like an accomplishment, or something that you have any control over whatsoever.

That`s strange, because every St. Patrick`s Day, hundreds of thousands of white people say "I`m proud to be Irish" and when Italy won the 2006 World Cup, hundreds of thousands of white people said "I`m proud to be Italian" and when Spain won the 2010 World Cup hundreds of thousands of white people said "I`m proud to be Spanish" and when Andy Murray just won the U.S. Open, hundreds of thousands of white people said "I`m proud to be Scottish"

"Therefore, I`m proud to be a member of the Caucasian race."

That doesn`t really make sense. There are already people who live in the Caucasus, basically Georgian. What I meant to say is that people pride themselves in their culture, as opposed to something generic like skin color.

Also, people who call themselves black tend to mean African-American, since slavery took away all knowledge of where they come from. African immigrants would most likely say that they are African. Hell, even white Africans would most likely refer to themselves as African as opposed to "white"

"White" isn`t really a race. You could be proud to be ethnically Jewish, Irish, Italian, Sweedish, etc and you`re still a white person. I would also like to argue that being a black African and a black African-American are basically two different races, but that might make me racist some reason.

@skytz1337

what makes you assume that any of us "whites" think of this as an issue or a "problem"? Pointing out a fact isn`t necessarily "complaining" about it, but more like holding up a mirror. if you want to call some people racist because you`ve been discriminated against, fine. do white people have better opportunities because of their race? in some ways, yes. but let`s face facts this is nowhere close to the world of slavery or segregation and it certainly doesn`t mean that white people don`t experience racism. point is, i think the `race card` bs needs to stop and maybe it`s time some of us look in the f*cking mirror.

"Therefore, I`m proud to be a member of the Caucasian race."

Why? What a completely arbitrary and pointless thing to be "proud" about. Anyone who is "proud" of the color of their skin, or the country their great great great great grandparents were born in are f.ucking morons who have no actual legitimate achievements to be proud of. Be proud of who you are and what you`ve done. Being proud to be black or irish or whatever is for simpletons.

"not all black people were descendants of slaves, moron"

No s.hit. However some research puts the number as high as 90%. It is considerably higher in the south where you are from. So almost every single black person you know or come into contact with is a descendent of a slave.

I don`t know what to say because even though my skin is as white as a ghost..My ancestors are a mix of European,Native American and African..I do not judge people based on race because you never know what someone`s heritage consists of by judging a book by a cover..(I`m just a mutt I guess)

Here are some more fun facts:

That main killer of Native Americans, diseases aside, was other Native Americans. Most of the killing was done by tribes that didn`t like each other very much. That`s how the Spanish conquered Mexico with 100 people.

Native Americans owned black slaves.

First slave owner in America was black.

In 1804, all of the white people in Haiti were killed, about 15% of the population.

In the Yucatan peninsula, from 1850-1900, there were constant pogroms against the local white population. This race war, caused by Mayan nationalism, killed up to 200,000.

The Chinese ethnically cleansed the greater part of Western China.

Turkish genocide of Armenians and Assyrians, both Christian groups.

Turkish genocide of Greeks.

Turkish genocide of Kurds.

Dominican nationalist genocide of 30,000 Haitians.

Knowing the above, and using HolyGod`s logic, wouldn`t it be reallyyyyy

I can list more - the point being that history is nothing but racial clashes in general, not white people oppressing everybody else. Read some history, it`s interesting.

And my ancestry is such a hodge-podge of origins, that I have no one country to be proud of. Therefore, I`m proud to be a member of the Caucasian race.

This is what everyone should do: stop applying different conditions to different races. That`s it. Why? Because that`s racist. It`s really that simple. Either you`re allowed to be proud, or not. But never let some be allowed and not others. That`s weird.

And if you try to bring up a dialogue about race, class, oppression, and genocide - then somebody knows history can counter that easily.

- There are more poor white people in total than black people, in America.
- Black Africans eliminated an entire racial group in Southern Africa, known as the Khoi-san, before arriving there at about the same time as Europeans.
- Major Asian genocide of Europeans for hundreds of years (e.g. half of Russia dead).
- Muslim rule of a giant portion of Europe for hundreds of years, as well as permanent occupation of culturally European territories.

" I don`t hear black people saying they`re proud to be Kenyan, or Nigerian, or some other African country. They say black."

That`s PROBABLY because they don`t know what country their ancestors came from as their ancestors were dragged here against their will in slave ships and stripped of their identity. Our ancestors came here willingly and then (generally) moved into areas of similar heritages and thrived in a culture that encouraged and rewarded ancestral pride.

"SOOO TRUE!!!
Black Pride= OK
Mexican Pride= OK
Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, Puerto Rican WHATEVER=OK
But White Pride= RACIST!!!!
What sense does that make?!?!?!?!"

Probably has something to do with what "White Pride" has been associated with in the last 100 years. There haven`t been holocausts, lynchings, and church burnings in the name of "Mexican Pride".

Klaxor... I don`t hear black people saying they`re proud to be Kenyan, or Nigerian, or some other African country. They say black.

Again, your point proves that reverse-racism exists. A white person can`t be proud to be generically white, but a black person can be proud to be generically black.

Who`s proud of being generically white? White people tend to be proud of being German, or Irish, or whatever

I don`t even think Asian people are proud of being "Asian," but specifically Chinese or Japanese etc.
