I mean they kinda already do, if the "white flight" phenomenon is anything to go by...

Wow, that's delusional.

Is it "wrong"? What do you mean by that? Like is god going to smite you? I have no idea.

From a context perspective, the ONLY context I see for white pride is among those who think white people are inherently superior, even superior under God. But historically, being black tended to f with your world. Being Jewish tended to get you killed... I can definitely understand the historical and contextual difference.

What I do know is that I have seen it over and over again, young white liberals railing against white people. I stand by the post I quoted and do believe it is a correct assessment.
This is an old conservative trope, much like what I heard back when protesting the Vietnam war - "America: love it or leave it". In other words conservatives are tribal in nature - you have to fully adopt the ways of the tribe and improvements to the tribe through self-critique is not tolerated. Just shut up and be a good tribal guy. This is the same attitude of people who say that whites are self-loathing because they are willing to own up to crimes of the past like slavery.

People like to pick on somebody who don't fight back. Overwhelming majority of the SJW types are cowards.
I repped you. Because I misread you! Minus one rep for you for completely factless assertion.

I still do wonder when being a warrior for justice became a Bad Thing.

Well said. I have been called a self loathing person before. It kind of amazes me. I like myself. *I* never did any of those things. And I like to try to LEARN from the mistakes of history. It baffles.

Yes, certain Islamic states do kill homosexuals, but most of them don't. I did a survey for school and found that most Muslims (in my local mosque) discourage homosexuality but they are accepted as normal people and that they have nothing against them as it is their own personal decision.

When the notion of "justice" was reduced to:

"white man bad"

"America bad"

"Orange man bad"

"Christians bad"
