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?

Do you believe white people cannot feel pride about their own race without that pride implying racism?

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

How do you think white people should feel about their own race?

I dunno, what are brown, yellow or black people supposed to feel about their race? What makes whites so special they alone deserve a mention by you?

Great to see that the mindset of many people is similar to a five year old's.

It is unfortunately. The human race is still incredibly petty and stupid, but we are at least getting better. We've made good progress in the last 60-70 years or so. In 2-3 generations I think we'll actually be at a nice place in regards to this issue which is great for our grandkids/great grandkids, lol.

Well, let's just hope we can survive within 2-3 generations.

12/22/2016- Made a bet with Ganoncrotch that the first 6 months of 2017 will be worse than 2016. A poll will be made to determine the winner. Loser has to take a picture of them imitating their profile picture.

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

White people are a race the same way black people are a race.

 

They're not really races just classifications. I think it just makes it simpler for people. It's better classification for people in a biological sense aswell, Slavics, Whites and Arabs are all 'Caucasian Race' but that doesn't really help when outlining the differences for classification purposes.

Yeah I was going to add the "if we don't blow ourselves up with nuclear weapons or cause some kind of environmental calamaty first". 

I think (hope) in 2-3 generations the first humans will leave Earth to begin colonizing other planets, and I think being removed from the Earth and being isolated in outer space will force our species to finally kick the racism habit for good. It just will be too stupid by that point to continue to cling to differences as miniscule as skin pigment variance when you are a million miles away from Earth.

Except blacks are a race, because they have differences between the rest.  You can't put people of the middle east and north africa into a different race than europeans, because they're genetically very similar. Their facial features and skull shapes are more comparitive too Europeans than they're too Asians or Blacks. Skin colour also is an issue, because many Europeans have different skin colours. Some can be as light as paper, while some can be quite dark. Similar thing with the middle east, only a bit darker on average.  But this is becoming an argument on biology, so I can assume we're OT now. 



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).

Don't feel as a race but as an individual, I don't see why you should feel bad for the mistake of others. gg



Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.

Technically if you're a human being your genetic origin traces back to Africa, that's where all our bloodlines trace back to, the DNA doesn't lie.

There isn't even a great deal of genetic variance between us, other species like birds and even dogs have far more variance. We're far more alike than many species. We have basically three primary different shades of skin pigment, two different hair types, and some variance in features like the eyes/nose primarily, and that's about it.  

Even subgroups of species like say pigeons have more variance physically than we do.

Guess you have to go back to biology class...

Just on the genetic origin, Europeans have a lot of inherintance from the Neanderthal.

I see no reason why I should be ashamed to be white. The negative things that white people have done in the past have been done by other races also, and seems to me that white people were more successful than others so have to take all the blame.


Frankly, I believe a lot of the negative feelings non-whites have for white people in modern times comes from a position of jealousy and bitterness at how incredibly successful white nations have been in the last 1000 years or so compared to everywhere else. White nations treat non-whites better than any non-white country treats whites and still get labelled most racist. It is ridiculous, quite frankly

Is this really a thread... Come on. You have way too much time on your hands.

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!

Thank you.

The idea that white people should feel the same for their own race as any other race, it being pride or indifference, is something I can get behind.

I singled out white people here because I haven't seen a discussion about how white people should feel about themselves in society, against other races who openly express pride and union for their own.

I singled white people out to see you guys' opinions on white people and how they should see their own race.

You would think that such a unifying view of our species' origin would pose no controversy but then people:
