Was wondering why being proud of being white is considered racist while black n brown pride seems to be acceptable. I Was watching the ufc Saturday and couldn't help but notice the brown pride tattoo on velasquez and then recalled that a white fighter melvin costa was barred from most all promotions due to white pride tattoos. Just seems like you can't be proud of your heritage unless your black or brown.

That's true. Talk about being racists. They tend to forget that Caucasian is a race too. They also tend to forget that Caucasians help them to get their "rights" and their "freebies" (aka majority, working middle class taxpayers). This kind of thinking will only bite them back though; people get sick and tired of this kind of prejudice and will start fighting for their 'rights'; perpetuating this ridiculous cycle. Why can't we just live and let live?

You do realize that many blacks were captured by other blacks to be giving into slavery... You do realize that many other races did as much if not worse than causcasions...

The thing here is if you had a white pride type parade (like the cinco de mayo celebrations, bud milikin parades, gay pride parade) people would be up in arms... the question is why is one "group" allowed while another group is not

Black is beautiful, tan is grand
But white is still the color of the big boss man

Deal with it.

Because "white pride" has been associated with Nazism and racism by terrible people. You want to make something positive and not racist out of it? Work to reclaim it instead of saying "wah wah i should be able to do all the things black people can while still getting off in life better than them!"

So much for judging each person by the content of their heart.

There is nothing wrong with being proud of your race. We all have a background that our proud ancestors brought to this country.
The issue is you are proud to be "white."

Here is an example...
I look white as can be, but that is not how I would describe myself. I am Irish, Dutch, English, Scottish, Roma, Italian, Native American, German and most importantly, American.

None of us are purebred in this day and age.

Yes, be proud of your history. Keep the stories alive for future generations and celebrate your heritage.

Just celebrating your "white skin" does not honor your family lineage.

God bless.
