i'm not proud of being white... i'm proud of my ethnicity, however... i think if someone says,"oh, i'm proud to be a white person." people automatically assume that you're a white supremacist and then hate you. because of all of the stuff white people have done back in history, there's really not much to be proud of....

Racial pride is stupid. I understand that people must accept themselves and love who they are....but racial pride just annoys me.

When people scream "ASIAN PRIDE" I just want to strangle them. My view is that when you have too much pride in your own ethnicity, you are distancing yourself from everyone else. To other people you appear to be putting yourself on a pedestal.

People should not be proud of their ethnicity in the first place. Why be proud of something you have no control over? So you are Asian. You are Mexican. You are white. So what? You didn't do anything to warrant the result. You just so happened to be born into this world by a woman of that ethnic group.

Racial pride angers me. I mean, I am Asian....but I don't flaunt it, you know? Why should I have to?

I'm very proud to be white, but just because i'm proud doesn't mean i have to go out and publish it to the public, i'd rather keep my pride to myself.

I mean, if you were to shout white pride numerous times out in the public, then yes you may be called a racist, because saying that in a multiracial community wont be appropriate.

But in all honesty, if anyone was to have a problem with me being proud of what i am, they can get the fuck out my sight.

There's no reason to be proud. I mean, you didn't decide your race..it's pretty much an accident what color you are.

it's always okay if you have a little pride, just not too much or you'll be considered a racist... so just keep it to yourself or you'll be labeled as one.

I think most people are proud of their culture, country, etc. I don't see people being proud of being Hispanic; rather, they are proud to be: Cuban, Venezuelan, Mexican, Peruvian, etc. Anyway, I don't see anything wrong with being proud of being a white American. I just think history has made the phrase "white pride" into something taboo. Just the way we made the word "retard" into a negative word.

noo. i'm sure if if a white dude or gal were to wave their hands and shout out their pride like many of the young asian folks do they'd be called racists. hell, even I know that without being white and doing it myself. I feel for you guys and it's lame. But I think people who shout out pride are lame too. I wonder what they hold pride for. Being born a certain ethnicity? How arrogant of them

How about everyone should be proud of THEMSELVES? Does that sound less arrogant?
