Time after time, I've heard people say... "I'm proud to be white".. "I'm proud to be black".. "I'm proud to be so and so" Can someone please explain to me what this means exactly, and why anyone would be proud to be a color? You're taking pride in something you had nothing to do with. It's no different than going around with a sign that says you're proud to have fingers, or you're proud to have ears. You're poking your chest out, proud just to be you without doing anything constructive. It's a white supremacists philosophy, and no one should adopt it.
