"I'm proud to be white. I bet no one passes this on because they are scared to be called a racist."

Have had two friends post this on fb. Unfollowed them both.
Nice people who would give you the shirt off their back.
But I don't look at them the same way anymore... I say hi and do the small talk thing, but it's like I know they have a dark side. A side I don't want any part of and despite their outside appearance of hospitality and generosity I don't want to be around them.
And I am troubled by this... Do I shun them? Who am I to shun others?
I know the answer lies in me and not them. But what is my answer?

3. Why are you proud of an accomplishment

that you did nothing to accomplish? Accidents of birth are nothing to brag about.

7. One could say the same about Black pride, Gay pride or Latino pride for that matter.

Ethnicity or sexual orientation is neither a fault nor an accomplishment

13. Disagree

"Proud to be white" isn't the same as having "black pride"--or "white pride" for that matter. "whatever ethnic" pride is about accomplishments of the people in that group; "proud to be" is about one's own situation, without regard to what has actually been accomplished. You could, I think, actually make a case (as racists do) for "white pride"--except that most everything we credit to white people could never have happened without the actual work of black, brown and yellow people. White people tend to take credit for everything, so "white pride" is meaningless.

What a pack of clowns.

4. once "see no color" was the aim, now ..??

scrolling through I see effieblack is playing an incredible game of twister.

Admonishing whites to accept all everything inherent in the past of the race, and to not cherry pick. All while demanding she be afforded utmost respect as a strong black woman.

Kinda funny how that works
