An experiment:

How many of you would be offended if I said "white pride" or wrote "white pride" in my profile/signature/etc. ? Is a white person publicly stating that they are proud to be white acceptable in today's society?

Thoughts?

I don't know.

I mean we have the MOBO awards, but if you had a MOWO award ceremony I reckon people would go absolutely ****ing mad.

TBH I think having pride in ur ethinicity is stupid anyways - it's not like ur ethinicity is something you acheived, it's just something ur born with.

There are more worthwhile and poiniant things to be proud of imo.

It's stupid to say as is "Black Pride". That and most people who say it end up being neo-nazis (from my experience).

The only reason we have these "pride" organizations is because of racism and discrimination against their group, whether the discrimination is based on ethnicity, sexual preference, whatever. Do you face discrimination based on being white?

this. There's nothing inherently wrong with being proud of who you are. I'm proud to be Scottish and I'm proud to be gay, however, so many people in the past have used being proud of their race as an excuse to hate other people because of their race, which is wrong. White pride makes people think of White Supremacy, which, while being two different things, are often used interchangeably.

So, you're saying it is not acceptable, socially, for a white person to state this? Do you see a problem here?

It's different from black pride and gay pride in the following way, those two movements (and others like them) are not really about being proud, they are about not being ashamed. They are mainly about trying to overcome and put systems in place to ensure that people can overcome, the inherent and inborn disadvantages that come from being black or gay in society.
There is no such reason to have a white pride movement. The only reasons are retarded ones put forward by neo-nazi's and whiny teens with no social awareness who believe that affirmative action and black history month are attempts to oppress them.

I don't think anybody has gotten excited yet.
The issue I have with people that proclaim their whiteness isn't the fact that they are proud of being white it's the fact that most of them use it as a way to proclaim their superiority. It's like people that start comments with "I'm not racist but". Racists that pretend to not be racists are worse than anybody wearing a bed sheet.
White people are not in a socially inferior position in western societies. Why do you need to proclaim your pride?

Because you said this comment based on no facts or evidence to support your point. And it is loaded, and provocative, which is not what I want to happen in the thread.

Technically I see the problem, but the reason most people view it as "unacceptable" is because they'll assume you're in the KKK if you say something like that.

I'm not for it.
Not because I see being proud of your race as a bad thing, but the words "White Pride" are usually associated holier than thou rednecks who look down on every race.

Not saying that's all supporters of it.
