Open a history book there are many examples of white pride.

However, US history just shows white history and does not take into account the history of the native people nor the contribution of all others.

We need to honor contibutions of all people...not just white or black.

Up here in the ne portion of the state we have white pride events. They are called the Italian fest, the greek fest, german festivals, etc. It's great to be proud of your heritage. As for the Confederate Flag i see it around here sometimes and it's mostly on the back of some pick up truck with a white guy driving. Usually i take it to mean they are redneck and proud, nothing more. I saw a flag on a barn, but the guy who lives there owns a couple of General Lee's (from the Dukes of Hazzard) and i'm sure it has more to do with his hobby than it does him being a racist or anything.

How did this turn into a discussion about white/black pride? I thought the Confederate flag signified SOUTHERN pride and rebellion. I mean that's what southerners keep saying. I think they would know better than northerners.

Considering that the south's plantation economy was entirely dependent upon slavery in order to remain a viable entity, I harbor significant doubts that there was much in the way of concern on the part of southern whites regarding the actions of an oppressive government that forced its will on an unwilling African-American populace. In fact, I seem to recall that they were willing to fight a four year war that cost hundreds of thousands of lives in order to continue just such a practice.
You are aware that North didn't emancipate its slaves West Virginia, Kentucky, and Louisiana until AFTER the war right - Just as Jefferson Davis had promised he would do after the Yankees stopped murdering his citizens.

What ever pain the South suffrered pales in comparison from the suffering of Africans suffered to support the South's agrarian economy. So shed no tears for the south.

This thread has gone on long enough. If you want to discuss this further, we have a Politics forum for all your political rants. Here, I think the op got as good an answer as he could have.
Closed.
