How do I view my race? I consider myself a part of the human race and in doing so, I view it as a pretty intolerable group of beings that need to get a grip on the fact that we're all in this together and without one another, we're all going to fail.

Great post mate. Imo some people in power dont want us to stand together, they want to try drive us more apart so we will keep fighting between ourselfs.

Or at least thats how it looks to me anyways.

When they look in the mirror and recognize their race, what are the correct and acceptable feelings white people should feel towards their own race?

Your Human not a race, get over yourself 

We are all Brothers and Sisters

This is a adept and philosophical question.

No problem if this isn't your thing - but if it isn't, then you could have just ignored it altogether.

.....or

Why not contribute a reasonable reply and keep the discussion interesting? In fact - this goes for everyone who has taken the liberty to have a go at the OP. If you can't reply without making things hostile/unreasonable, then don't post!

Is pride in your own race only ok when that pride comes from being a minority and being an oppressed race?

This stems not from pride of their race itself but in accomplishments achieved despite a system designed to hinder it.    When you are part of a race, gender, culture, ethnic group. etc...that is disadvantaged, their is a sense of collective pride when a member achieves a status that is predominantly held by the predominant group.

White power, on the other hand, is not about a sense of pride for the general accomplishments for white people (that pride is built into society already) but rather a pride that stems from their ability and success as oppressors.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

Race is largely meaningless. You should feel neither proud nor ashamed of your race.

Culture on the other hand is far from meaningless. I'm proud of the positive contributions western european culture (and its offshoots) have made to the world.

Most notably being the source of about 90% of the scientific and technological advancements of the last 500 years and the source of most of the rights revolutions like anti-racism, anti-sexism, anti-homophobia, anti-animal cruelty etc.

Oppression has been almost constant throughout human history and has been practiced by every single group. The fact that white people are generally better off today has very little to do with oppression, and a whole lot to do with the Industrial revolution.

Which is why the non-white people who were oppressors throughout the same periods (e.g The Ottomans), are NOT rich today despite their oppression. But societies who had very little oppression but DID industrialise (like Japan), are rich.



However they want to feel about it.
