White = Racist



I have often wondered about why Whites are racists, and no other race is......
Someone finally said it. How many are actually paying attention to this?
There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, etc.
And then there are just Americans.. You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction.
You call me 'White boy,' 'Cracker,' 'Honkey,' 'Whitey,' 'Caveman'... And that's OK..
You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day.
You have Black History Month.
You have Cesar Chavez Day.
You have Yom Hashoah.
You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi.
You have the NAACP.
You have BET....
If we had WET (White Entertainment Television), we'd be racists.
If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists.
If we had White History Month, we'd be racists.
If we had any organization for only whites to 'advance' OUR lives, we'd be racists.
We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce.
A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but any color can be in the Miss America pageant.
If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships... You know we'd be racists.
There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US .
Yet if there were 'White colleges', that would be a racist college.
In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights.
If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists.
You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're not afraid to announce it.
But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.
I am proud...... But you call me a racist.
Why is it that only whites can be racists??
There is nothing improper about this.
Let's see which of you are proud enough to send it on.
I sadly don't think many will.
That's why we have LOST most of OUR RIGHTS in this country.
We won't stand up for ourselves!
BE PROUD TO BE WHITE! And No, I am Not Racist!
It's not a crime YET.... But getting very close!

I make no bones about it...yet. I am white, proud of that fact and I don't care if you call me a racist, racist doesn't mean squat, a made up word that is far too often bantered around like it had some magical voodoo attached to it. It is parlayed from miscreants that have no intelligence and no imagination or even a thesaurus handy. I simply ignore them and own the fact I am been called a racist. You made me one.

I look at it a bit differently, C. I consider myself prejudiced to the extreme, mostly because of personal experience. That simply means that I form an opinion on someone based on race or religion, though I'm not so inflexible as to deny the individual the chance to prove me wrong. However, I'm not racist, which means that I think I'm special because I'm white. Nor am I bigoted, which means that I mistreat someone because of my prejudice. I'm as polite to those I'm suspicious of as I am to anyone else.
