Is it wrong for me to be proud of being White?
I am finding myself confused and just torn in general over the whole race issue in America, I do not support racism in any way…But I also am not ashamed of the fact that if MY ancestors hadn’t made it possible for me to be here I wouldn’t be. How can you not be proud of who you are? Because the actions of a few, A whole race is supposed to feel guilt and remorse? My family as far as I have been able to find has NEVER owned any slaves…SO any punishment against ME for RACISM would be wrongfully placed on me simply because the color of my skin..Isn’t that the kind of mistakes in thinking that brought us to this point in History? I want to be a proud WHITE man just as much as others want to be a proud BROWN man or a proud BLACK man…Or woman. Do I tell my kids not to be proud of who they are? Because a few people did some horrible things and now all white people are evil racist that hate other races? Is it wrong for me to want my kids to be proud of who they are? Where they come from and where we’ve made it? This is America right? We have the rights to these freedoms correct? I can’t help but wonder if I am forever expected to feel ashamed of the color of my skin for the actions of people whom I do not know, have never known and would never even consider. It’s shocking that I have to write a question on a website to ask If I am wrong for being proud of being white? I guess that is why I am here tho so..In your own opinion, Black, White Or Brown…Am I wrong for being proud of being white?
