It depends. As long as everyone is allowed to wear similar shirts, regardless of backround, and there isn't any volatile racial tensions.... I don't see a problem. I don't approve of special treatment, though. If pro-white/whatever type isn't allowed, neither should a shirt that promotes any other notable heritage. I don't sympathize with victim complexes.

It already has connotations with some very shady stuff so I'd say no.

White pride or even referring to yourself as white isn't common in Ireland though. You're just Irish and being white is just something that goes along with that.

Why would you have pride over the color of your skin in the first place?

Appropriate as in, socially acceptable and not a faux pas? Fuck no, or at least not at a school in any neighbourhood I want to go near.

Appropriate as in, should be permitted and not banned? Yes, and my answer is automatically "yes" no matter what political or other such message the shirt has, because I'm very much pro-free-speech and schools are basically kid-prisons in enough other respects that we may as well afford them this freedom.

Jews generally have the same skin colour as white people, and you don't see many of them in groups that talk about "white pride", so it's pretty obviously not about skin colour. There's a big social aspect to race - saying "race is a social construct" will get these people really mad, but if you instead said "race is about tradition" they'd probably basically agree, it's largely a matter of which buzzwords you use.

Which is why I feel you should ignore the regressives in society. I, and my company, place little to no importance to race outside of off-color jokes.

Around or above 60%. Well counting Asians into the white category too.

We're all apart of our own countries, so is it racist to wear shirts that say we support our country in another country?

Maybe 50%, if that, for my workplace.

My daughter's school is ~22% white, 32% black, 34% Hispanic, 7% Asian, with the rest mixed.

It's been a long time since I lived anywhere whites were the majority.

here is my question. why would you be proud of your race? it is something that you were born with that has nothing to do with the actions and choices you made so why would you be proud of it? maybe people who are proud of their own race really have never achieved anything in life so they fall back on that.

Hell yeah if you live in America that counts as freedom of speech/freedom of expression if black people wear black pride shirts than so can hispanics and Asians and whites we all have that ability nobody is unequal (at least that's what they want us to believe)

If a black kid is wearing a black power shirt does anyone care? No. If a white kid wears a shirt that says white power. Yes. Why? Because, there's a double standard being applied. All people are racist on one level or another. Or more likely just weary of each other. Anyone you come across you try to find a common denominator. You see it in schools and prisons all the time. People go where they can find their people. This works in the means of interest, color, religion, morals, or damned near anything that draws an individual to a group. Factionalism is a prominent feature of human society.

All human being on this planet are the same species. Like a house cat in North America is the same as a cat in Asia. Genetically we are all made the same. We all come from a human female. That is the same regardless of region. Our characteristics developed from the regions in which our ancestors came. Now, that I have covered the science of how all human being as the same I will move on.

Ideology is where all human beings disagree. All claiming to be the ONE TRUE PATH. All religions die, and all rulers fall. People can come together for a multitude of reasons. Inspiration from a great leader and speaker. To gather in praise of a higher power, or simply to come together and discuss and debate. It is human choice. We are beings who are just slightly raised beyond our instinctual processes. An individual with harmful intent is always there.
