I'm white and I'm also proud to be white. If I was black I would also be proud. There is nothing wrong with pride, what is wrong is when pride of yourself becomes hatred for other people who are different. When that happens we get a bunch of this going on.

People often busy themselves with things they have no control over, and then get frustrated when they can't make changes they deem necessary.---Race is not up to any one of us. All that is in Gods hands. He deals the cards, we just play the hand best we can. don't blame me if you get one eyed jacks. I'm not dealin.

To be honest I associate anyone who is proud of being born a certain thing as a moron. You didn't accomplish anything special to be born black or white, rich or poor...its just the way it turned out. You didn't invent a light bulb by being Irish. Being proud about nonaccomplishments creates an environment of prejudice and racism. Pride is considered a sin for a reason and being proud of yourself for not doing anything would be deemed "sick pride".

This is actually quite true. You should be proud of yourself, good post.

Sorry about the error. I'm sure I'm the only one here that made a mistake in their (not there) post. I'm sure if I went back and looked at all your (not you're) post they would be perfectly spelled and correct in every manner.
Thanks for the english lesson.

Or maybe better yet Ocean, you could start a thread on the proper use of the english language. Your reply would be more excepted there. I did not start this thread so someone could give me an english lesson.

We really need to put all of the "ethnic" pride stuff away. You can't control it anyway, so what is the point.

We should be proud of others things, such as accomplishments, or things of that nature.

Its okay to have pride in who you are but I do have a problem when white people use racist remarks and stereotype while they only say good things about their race
Just respect the other cultures/ethnicities as well
