Skin pride is extremely stupid, but so is lgbt pride
@mastershane50 LGBT pride is completely different and has a completely different cause to it. So there isn't a comparison between the two
My first memory of self pride was peeing while standing. I earned that.
@allenfit_ well if they argue that you are born gay then they aren't really different, as it's taking pride in something out of your control, but yes there is a different cause
Wow ironic, sounds very familiar xD
@maxscruby0110 you're right about that. But the only reason they take pride in it is cause they're told that who they are, isn't okay and that they should be. Same reason why black people are proud to be black.
@mastershane50 I think LGBT "pride" has more to do with refusing to live in the shadows as they were forced to do for centuries.
@allenfit_ that's interesting, about they're told who they are isn't ok. Not that I condone the white pride in the way it's being carried out there, but that movement has been reinvigorated in recent times as a result of the so called regressive left constantly shaming white people for being white, claiming that all white people are racist and all the other anti white rhetoric. The movements have some unfortunate parallels
@maxscruby0110 I think that group is finally receiving the criticism they've never received and they're finally being generalized much like they do to other groups ("most Mexicans are rapists, Blacks commit all theft", etc)
@maxscruby0110 I see I see. Well I think the whole issue with the white people are racist it kinda speaks for its self. We state that the same reason we state lall cops are bad". Let me explain. When one cop has done something bad or racist to an innocent civilian. None of the other cops stand up and say he was wrong for doing such. Same goes for white people. They would rather get mad at being called racist and protest that rather than protest the issues at hand for example the injustice of black people marches. Or so much as speak up. A facebook post. Anything that would support that what is happening to black people is wrong. I feel like if you get mad at being called racist and argue it instead of getting mad at what's happening to the black people or other races. Then you are racist. That's like someone calling me a thug because all blacks are thugs and me arguing and getting mad about it. But if it really doesn't pertain to me because I know I'm not a thug why would I get mad ? You understand what I mean ?
@lizard_lizv would you consider that a good thing?
@allenfit_ I see your point but I'm very against generalizing any group, and this is yet another set of generalisation. Not only is it unhelpful to any argument and progress- for example calling black people thugs doesn't help prevent the disproportionate crime rates committed by black people- it leads to problematic groups such as this white supremacist group gaining even a small amount of legitimacy as they can show evidence of being targeted
@maxscruby0110 you're absolutely right. It's almost as if we don't know how to unite lol everyone wants to be against each other so bad and that's shitty that's why we're in such a bad place. Well actually we've always been in a bad place. Different races never worked together even in history. It's just shitty we can't live on earth as one race
@allenfit_ also generalizing like that prevents finding solutions because it doesn't look for a cause for a problem. For example "all Muslims are terrorist" isn't true and doesn't examine the scriptures which breed radicalism. "All black people are thugs" doesn't look at the economic difficulties faced by that community and seek to resolve them. "All white people are racist" doesn't attempt to find the source of the racism that does exist and just decides to blanket an entire group (of which many aren't actually racist) and claim they're innately bad
A fact
@allenfit_ that's very true, it is bizarre how there always seem to be features such as gender, race, religion and sexuality used to divide people. You'd think after thousands of years we'd have figured out how to get along, especially now we understand how similar on the inside everyone actually is
@maxscruby0110 very true. There are some brave and active white people who do fight for black people and stand for everything we do. I just hate the ones that are quiet. Like I have white friends who aren't racist but when it comes to something happening in the news to black people they'd rather not speak on it ? it makes no sense to me
@maxscruby0110 or they justify it by saying dumb ass remarks like "they shouldn't have resisted" type shit. They don't see it for the reality of the situation. But I understand what you mean. Clearly we're a dumb ass species if we haven't figured out fighting against each other gets us no where
@allenfit_ I see what you mean about the silence, but there have been occasions where I'm told my opinion doesn't matter because I am not of the group that is experiencing a problem, so that may make some people prefer to stay silent to avoid criticism
Still, you shouldn't have pride for something that you were born with like race or sexuality. Pride should only come from your accomplishments
@maxscruby0110 now see that, I don't like ! I hate when black people do that. They try soooo hard to separate the blacks from the whites. Like that won't do anything we need unity from all races not just our own people. It's idiotic to think that way. That's no different than how the white supremacists think in my opinion. Don't ever be afraid to speak up because of criticism. People who say stuff like that are ignorant don't even feed into that man
That skinny kid in the photo - if he was pointing a gun at me, I'd still walk up to him and slap him senseless. I don't understand these weak, fearful, little cuckold bitch-boys.
I guess that means there are a lot of pathetic white and black and brown people out there.
@mastershane50 agreed 100%
Why do racists and white supremacist always align themselves with the Republican Party? 🤡🐸
True, but this includes ALL races. #melanin
@pethsergerson Black and brown people taking pride in their color of their skin is not the same thing as white people taking pride in their skin color. Black and brown people have been shamed for the color of their skin for many many many years and you have the audacity to sit here and talk about how white pride is the same thing as black and brown pride. No. We don't think we are superior just because the color of our skin is brown or black. You think your superior because your skin is white.. White pride is literally thinking you're superior
@pethsergerson go join this bastard. You're part of the problem #scum you just outed your racist ass self
@pethsergerson don't ever hashtag melanin again. Disrespectful cuck
@geemofficial_ I'm brown. I've always thought all racial pride was stupid
It's Eminem on crack
White ignorance and Meth = racist retard
@mattgrinsfelder Since I'm not black I don't feel as if I owe you an explanation.
@mattgrinsfelder You're not really making it clear what you want me to explain. Are there words in this post you don't understand?
@vixxx10 the Republican Party is far whiter than the Dems
@itsjoshharlow again, white pride means they think they are superior. Anybody else that's taking pride in themselves is showing love to themselves and their culture and their people. Brown and black people don't think they are superior than anybody else. You don't get it. Go side with the white people. You're a fucking fucktard. You may as well join the guy in the picture.
@itsjoshharlow if you were really a brown person, you wouldn't say that. If you were brown, you would tell me where you came from, not just say that you were brown. Stop pretending to be a person of color please. And even if you really are, by blood, you're canceled
Im sure you support black lives matter though. Weird
@dayne4084 I find it weirder that you can't see the difference between people claiming racial supremacy and people saying their lives have value.
@bfd502412 blm is one of the most racist groups out there.
@dayne4084 Thanks for your sharing your opinion with us
Including people who take pride in any other race then white, not just white people
@mattgrinsfelder hi hello, I'm a black person. Black pride to me is important because a lot of us grow up to hate the color of our skin. The difference between white pride and black pride is that white people are already considered "beautiful" this is the country they colonized and this is the country that my people were forcibly brought to. I'm not saying this because I want sympathy, I'm not even complaining. It's just what happened and it's ok to talk about it. For hundreds of years we were determined who got harder jobs or easier ones depending on whose skin was lighter. Even when slavery ended the pressure to look more white was forced onto us even harder even today jobs and schools attack our hairstyles and claim them to be unkempt or dirty when that's simply not the truth it takes a lot of work to keep up black hair. Black pride is something we invented as a community to let (mostly the children who are more affected by it) everyone know that despite everything that happened we're still here and even when we were told not to be proud of our blackness we still are. White pride is made out of hatred and bigotry. No one complains about German Pride or Irish Pride. But to claim White Pride your claiming genocide, slavery, treason and disguising it as heritage. You can be proud to be European I think Europeans are all beautiful with very interesting cultures but to sit here and be proud of oppressing all people non white is not Okay it's very toxic ideology. Next time you have a question about something black please don't harass a non black admin on an account just ask a black person because only we can truly tell you because it is our lives.
Everyone is equally pieces of garbage
"Cut here" 🗡️
@westernvanguard I think this is something that probably applies to you.
Wtf
I dont even take pride in my skin color
Do i think whites are superior to non whites? In some aspects yes but in general no. I just want america, europe, and australia/new zealand to remain white
@westernvanguard Why do you want them to remain white?
@bfd502412 because I want diversity, not multiculturalism
@bfd502412 I want to preserve our sacred history and heritage
@westernvanguard Why would your heritage disappear if your ethnicity was a minority?
Repost from @nytimes ✨✨💙 Thousands of people gathered on the @uva campus in #Charlottesville last night in the glow of candlelight, striking a peaceful contrast to the torches wielded by white supremacists on Friday. The vigil was largely organized by word of mouth, and its leaders strove to keep the plans off social media. The result: a warm gathering that provided some small measure of relief to a college town left in turmoil by the weekend’s events. The marchers — many of them college students — retraced the steps of Friday’s march. But instead of torches and racist chants, they carried candles and sang songs of peace. A student read Maya Angelou’s “Still I Rise,” and the group concluded by singing “Amazing Grace” and the “The Good Old Song,” the university’s traditional alma mater. The vigil capped off a quiet day of community grieving in Charlottesville, coming hours after a memorial for #HeatherHeyer, the woman who was killed on Saturday.

22-year-old college student Takiyah Thompson explains why she pulled down a Confederate statue in Durham, NC. She was arrested on two charges of felony inciting a riot—and three misdemeanor charges for bringing down the statue. Thompson is out on bail and spoke to Democracy Now! this morning.

This morning I woke up to find a message from my friend Rob Kearney. I have never met Rob in person but look forward to doing so. Rob is a member of the @gesundheitinstitute, made famous by the Robin Williams movie, Patch Adams. Rob travels to third world countries, dressed as a clown, to bring smiles to the sick. . This morning Rob told me he bought THIRTY TWO of the LOVE shirts to be raffled off in memory of Heather Heyer, the 32 yr old killed in Charlottesville!!! I am just truly blown away by this beautiful gesture. The only way to defeat hate is with love. #charlottesville #heatherheyer #love #lovewins #letloverule #gesundheitinstitute #patchadams #beautifulhumans

Deandre Harris, 20, said he traveled to Emancipation Park to protest a white nationalist rally when a fight broke out. He said he was chased by a group of white men and beaten with metal poles as he lay helpless on the ground. _____________________________________ The person of interest also goes by the name #DanBorden. The beating was overshadowed by the horrific murder of counter protester Heather Heyer, but it’s getting more deserved attention now because of a viral video of the attack, a concerted effort to identify the five men allegedly involved by journalist and social justice advocate Shaun King, and police confirming that Borden is in fact a person of interest. _________________________________ #deandreharris#marcusmartin#heatherheyer#universityofvirginia#racism#donaldtrump#terrorattack#barackobama#colinkaepernick#marshawnlynch#blacklivesmatter#444#cnn#cbs#worldnews#bbc#nfl#worldstar#loveandhiphophollywood#foxnews#hollywoodunlocked#presidenttrump#cthagod#blm#terrorism#charlottesville#racism#danielborden#amerikkka#jamesalexfieldsjr
