Proud To Be White.

I am BLACK AND but saw this mail and decidedc to share it. U will see why i laughed after i said 'I am black and Proud'. Read on...

Someone finally said it.
How many are actually paying attention to this?

*There are African Americans, Mexican Americans,Asian Americans, Arab Americans, Native Americans, etc. And then there are just Americans.
You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction. You Call me "White boy," "Cracker," " Honkey," "Whitey," "Caveman" .. And that's OK.
But when I call you, Nigger, Kike, Towel head, Sand-nigger, Camel Jockey,Beaner, Gook, or Chink ... You call me a racist.
*You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you, So why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?
*You have the United Negro College Fund.
*You have Martin Luther King Day.
*You have Black History Month.
*You have Cesar Chavez Day.
*You Have Yom Hashoah
*You have Ma'uled Al- Nabi
*You have the NAACP
*You have BET.
*If we had WET (White Entertainment Television) ...We'd be racists.
*If we had a White Pride Day ...You would call us racists.-
*If we had White History Month...We'd be racists.
*If we had any organization for only whites to "advance" OUR lives...We'd be racists.

*We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce,a Black Chamber of Commerce..
And then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce. Wonder who pays for that?
*If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships... You know we'd be racists.

*There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US , Yet if there were "White colleges" ...THAT would be a racist college.

*In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights.
*If we marched for our race and rights...You would call us racists.
*You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're Not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride ...You call us racists.
*You rob us, car jack us, and shoot at us.But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug-dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society ...You call him a racist.

I am proud...But, you call me a racist....Why is it that only whites can be racists?

That is the end of the moaning. Lol.

Please can anyone answer this question?

the writer of that article forgot that America was initially the land of native americans not white Americans.
secondly,the article sounds really dumb, cause what makes America is the Diversity of the people not one set of people
Thirdly regarding his comments about drug dealers is he saying only other races apart from white rob and have gangs.
The writer needs to get his facts straight and write an intelligent article based on facts not on his biased personal opinion

And my question is why should you benefit from what your great grandfather stole? Whether it be free land from Indians or free labor from slaves, it's still stolen gains and profits. And if your family hadn't immigrated to the US then we're not talking to you. But since you are here the sins of the father whether biological or adopted are still the sins of the son.
Whenever I see a column criticizing social traditions and public policies that ignore children born to parents of modest means - without stock market portfolios or networks of well-connected friends that whites are priviledged to have from STOLEN wealth or FREE labor from slaves. You might as well ask: Why didn't those children do a better of job of choosing their parents?
Since children obviously cannot choose their families, it's impractical, at best, to neglect those born outside the magic circle of white middle-class attainment, social mobility has been limited by a range of trends, including the demise of manufacturing jobs and the making of laws constructed by mostly whites, that benefits only their own. In turn these circumstances makes the routes to a better life blocked, and their circumstances more limited than many of us can imagine.

This is a very interesting question Vera and one that I've answered to white people to their face and my answer has been met with many different reactions. Though most of them didn't like my answer.
First, did you know that "Say It Loud, I'm Black and I'm Proud" was a tune done by James Brown back in the sixties?
But to answer your question. It's all about perception. This country (the United States)was founded by, had it's constitution written by and is basically run by white people. Most of it's politicians, corporate leaders high ranking business executives are white. Almost all the most popular television shows are of or having to do with white people and their 'lives'. So, everything in this country is "perceived" to be of and for whites. THE PHANTOM

the guy is basically bitching that for certain things if a black person does it it's okay and if a white person does it, it's racism. Yes there is a double standard, but i think that it is both intended (stuff like the black chamber of commerce to help blacks start businesses) and unintended (like black comedians being given a license to be racist) effects of trying to level the playing fields

It's the same thing with Christianity in America, most devout Christians complain about the double standard wrt to other religions.

The issue now becomes how can you tell when the playing field has been levelled enough to label such activities racist?

I suppose that someone will also say that if you think the playing field is currently leveled you're a racist. Anyway nice thought provking post. Laters.

My 2 cents said...

Is it me or does this individual actually make a valid argument. This is food for thought.
