I'm surprised he hasn't taken the bait already
Yep, you know
Sorry for all my white privilege:
Why is it OK to be proud of being black or some permutation of gay/lesbo/tranny or just a degenerate freak but it's not OK to be proud of being white?
I think it's stupid to be proud of your race,.. it makes sense to be proud of your family,.. but it's ridiculous to be proud of what billions of people group you're associated with,.. a person is an individual, not a group
I'm neither proud nor ashamed of being white. It is the way I was born and it was not in my control to make a choice. If I was black, Hispanic or Asian I hope I would feel the same way.
I am proud to be an American. Again, that wasn't my choice but the result of millions of combinations of dna among the thousands of my ancestors. If somebody hadn't moved to America I would be English or French. Or maybe Scottish, Irish, Welsh or even German or Belgian. I don't know what all happened among people in the past I know nothing about.
I'm am proud of my Cajun heritage and culture. Not because I was born into that set of circumstances but because of my experiences growing up. Lots of people are proud of being Irish, Italian, German or Greek and celebrate it. St. Paddy's Day, Italian festivals, even an Octoberfest in the town of New Brunsfels, Texas.
Every ethnic group has their own unique customs, music and food. There is nothing wrong with that. Black culture has a lot to offer. The food, culture, music, art and traditions of the different peoples of African nations and especially the Caribbean.
Be proud of who and what you are, not because of the color of your skin but because you are what you are.
No face book for me, but my pops created an account last year with the primary purpose of sharing views and opinions about modern politics. He as been in face book jail twice I believe.
Good assessment. I am proud of my cajun heritage because I've found them to be some of the most generous and self supportive people ive come across. And happy which is missing in most people today. I took a lot of that for granted over the years. Now its appreciated.
I don't use Facebook.
