Why should they feel anything? Why not just get on with your life instead of worrying about silly things like 'race'?

The race I think about it all the time is my PC

that's the funniest PC Master race mention I have come across for a long time :D

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.

Undeserved collective pride. The hell did a black guy in New York do to contribute towards Lebron James's success?

I don't think that example makes sense when the NBA is dominated by black players and has been for a long time.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Do you want to try again or are you going to keep with that airball?



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

Proud (Just dont say it out loud). Despite all the messed up shit (and there's lots of it) there's also a ton of good, a ton of hardworking people who have contributed so much to humanity. Again, just don't say it out loud XD.



I predict that the Wii U will sell a total of 18 million units in its lifetime. 

The NX will be a 900p machine

Did I just stumble into stormfront today? Guess my mind is just wandering a bit. In all seriousness, I've honestly never cared. Unlike in the US, most people could care less about your race. I never once had anyone tell me I'm white or brown or something else. Yes, I have a "foreign" name, but I never ran into problems because of it. Also just in case you're wondering; white isn't a race. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caucasian_race



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).



I take no pride in being born, nor do I take pride in what I was born with. I realize that some are dealt better or worse cards in the game of life, but its not something you earned or worked towards.
I dislike the LGBTQ+ pride parades for the same reason.



Well, get on with the time, we all should feel ashamed.

I'm kind of neutral when it comes to race. I'm proud of my national ancestry because vikings are cool and their mythology was beautiful. But I don't feel any connection to the ancestry of other white europeans. Other than happiness that we gave the christians a bloody nose before they erased much of our culture.

Being ahamed of your race because of past crimes is stupid. Every human being in the past were assholes when they got power. The mongols slaughtered people. The arabs did sex slavery on a huge scale (allthough that's kind of hot when I think about it). The aztecs did horrific ritual sacrifices, etc etc. Everyone was an asshole in the past. There's no point in feeling shame for things you did not commit.

But sometimes past oppression can echo well into today. Like in America. Because of slavery most african americans started out in poverty. And because of low social mobility it still affects people today. And there are still assholes on some news channels (*cough* fox *cough*) who tries to blame them for it.
