Proud to be White!

Hating people because of their colour is wrong.
And it doesn't matter which colour does the hating.
It's just plain wrong! (Muhammad Ali)

H.G. Wells stated, “Our true nationality is mankind.”

I'm proud to be a Canadian.
I'm proud to be a Christian.
I'm proud of my Culture and Heritage.
I'm proud of my Courage to combat Life's inflictions.
I'm proud of the Circumstances whereby I made wise decisions.
I'm proud of the Wonders in this world.
And I'm proud to be White.

Usually I steer away from controversial topics. In the following sent to me by Carolyn, I share Michael Richards comments...to which you can agree, stalemate them or totally ignore his words.

Better known as Kramer from TV's Seinfeld, Michael Richards does make a good point. This was his defence speech in court after making racial comments in his comedy act. I do agree that he raises a few interesting points.
There are African Americans,
Mexican Americans,
Asian Americans,
Arab 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 racist.

You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you...so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live in?
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 NAACP.
You have BET.

Imagine if we had WET (White Entertainment Television)...we'd be racists.
If we had White Pride Day, you would call us racists.
If we had White History Month, we'd be racists.
If we had any organization for whites only to 'advance' OUR lives, we'd be racists.

We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce...and then we have the plain Chamber of Commerce. Wonder who pays for that?

A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but any colour can be in the Miss America pageant held yearly.

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 United States...yet, if there were 'White Colleges', that would be a racist college.

In the Million Men 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, carjack 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 racist.

I am proud... but you call me racist.
Why is it that only whites can be racists?
That's why we have LOST most of our RIGHTS in this country:
We won't stand up for ourselves.
BE PROUD TO BE WHITE!
It's not a crime YET...but getting very close!

Words of Wisdom
Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud,
adopts as a last resource...pride in the nation to which he belongs;
he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies, tooth and nail,
thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.
(Arthur Schopenhauer, Essays & Aphorisms)

Be not like...the pot that calls the kettle black!

  1. MY SON POINTEDLY STATES: "If you toot white pride, you are a hate group. You can toot almost anything else...even hating others in the process...and that's OK: free speech/expression and all.
    If a privately owned Mom and Pop Bakery refuses to decorate a wedding cake for a couple queers, they are sued out of house and home...and forced to pay $135,000 of their personal savings in compensation for emotional damage!
    But a jihad shouting-Muslin shoots over a hundred patrons at a (gay) nightclub, killing almost 50..and that's OK.
    Nixon's men are caught bugging the Democrat hq...and it's a media circus. Yet, that act is insignificant compared to the vile corruption of the present administration.
    In '74, 18 minutes of tape was erased and it's an outrage of government corruption. Hillary destroys hard drives and over 20,000 illegal emails...and that's OK.

    Your comments are DEAD ON! It's 'dirty politics' which has always been...always will be! Even our Ontario Premier has exercised 'cover-ups'...it's a common trait (often unknown to us) with politicians who trust their words & actions are not revealed to the public.
