And going further east do Poles, Finns, Lithuanians and even Russians have it?


How would non whites have it? :eh: Slavs are less white than Indians, at least Indians developed civilisation independently of western Europe, slavs can hardly make that claim. They only discovered civilisation when Marxism (a western ideology) came along and gave it to them.

Oh, I see you just put in your time and pretend. That seems like what I would expect from you.

Personally, I find the arguments "It's okay to be white" and "It's not okay to be white" to be invalid. Since you are born with your skin colour and are not able to change it (unless you're rich, I guess), there is no way it can be 'okay' or 'not okay'. 4 Chan wanted to expose the media hypocrisy, and I guess they succeeded in somewhat way, but this was just another boost to the Alt-Right-SJWs who believe they are currently witnessing white genocide.

Extreme conservatives are shown to be more fearful and self-victimised than centrists or leftists, so I assume we will see a lot more of this in the future. (McClosky, 1958; Block and Block, 2005; Dodd, 2012).

Too much moral panic and populism going around from both sides these days.

Right. Well said, @iambjorn.

You are proud of achievements you make, not that you were born with more or less melanin in your skin.

I am proud of my achievements too, but I am also proud to be white instead of black. Praise the Lord.

@Hindsite Are you also proud of being a racist? Is that something your mother aunt taught you?

No, I am not a racist, I just like my race better, just like many black people like their race better. That is just having pride in your race.

@maz Liking what colour you are, is different from being proud of what colour you are. I see you missed the joke in that "cartoon", didn't you?

You might as well like what you are, but being proud? :roll: Your skin colour isn't an achievement. It's simply what you were born with.

I'm happy I am human, and it's very convenient that I was born white. It's not like I had a choice in the matter, right?

If you want to pretend to be naive then I guess I will play along with you.

It is ok that you are not proud of your race, and that you are fine just being human.

Some people are proud of their race, and there should be nothing wrong with that. Although I have gotten lots of attention and preferential treatment for most of my life, I for one am sort of ashamed of my mixed ethnicity.

I would prefer to be one race and not mixed. I wouldn't even care what race, as long as it was pure.

So I sort of admire people who are proud of their ethnicity.

So do also look down on other people who are not white, but proud of their ethnicity?

Then is black pride equally dumb?

Obviously people advocating for pride, are not advocating pride in there mere skin tone, but for pride in their people who share that trait as a whole. Those who are proud to be white are not ashamed of who they are or their people. Lets start being honest please.

ALSO

No controversy here:

Lucian Wintrich, a credentialed White House correspondent for Gateway Pundit, a right-wing website, was arrested Tuesday night after a scuffle broke out as he was trying to deliver a speech titled “It’s OK to be White” at the University of Connecticut in Storrs.

The speech, sponsored by the campus College Republicans and attended by about 350 people, had been largely drowned out by protesters shouting “Go home Nazis,” “Black Lives matter” and “F–k you,” according to the Daily Campus, the student newspaper.

Video of the incident showed several young people approaching the podium where Wintrich was standing. According to the Hartford Courant, which covered the event, they began “yelling at Wintrich.” A woman then took from the lectern a sheaf of papers, apparently the text of Wintrich’s speech, and walked away with them. Wintrich pursued her and grabbed her in an apparent effort to retrieve the papers.

At that point, others intervened and appeared to be trying to pull him off the woman, the video showed, and a brief melee broke out. Police took Wintrich out of the room, the Courant reported.

Once again, people can see who the real snowflakes are, the left has earned that label and trying to pin it on the Right does not nullify the fact that it is college leftists that try to shut down speech that hurts their feelings. It is NOT the Right that is doing that, it is the left.

Well, black people are proud of overcoming racist adversity because they were racialised and forced into the group we now call black, and then they fought very hard against that racist adversity.

White people were never racialised and never had to fight against racial adversity.

The difference in history is obvious.

Looks like this Wintrich guy is better at getting a reaction than the guy behind the posters, even if it is the usual reaction to hate speech on campuses.

Also, if he goes around hitting women because they took his papers after he deliberately provoked them by lying, then he is a snowflake.

How does it follow that white people cannot be proud of their collective history and accomplishments?

How is an "Its Okay To Be White" speech, hate speech on campus?

I'm pretty sure he spoke "words" (i know, scary) and was attacked by a leftist who stole his property.....are you saying that this is permissible and not snowflakey, but then if the speaker goes to retrieve his stolen property and defends himself, that makes him the snowflake?

Do you know how deluded that sounds? Basically: if a white person ever bitches about anything = snowflake.

Anyone else bitches about anything = perfectly justified.

Yeah, that sounds right. :roll:

You are apparently ignorant of this historical truth:
There has been many times in history that white people had to overcome religious and racial adversity too. These are the white Jews and Christians under Rome and Muslim Arab rule. Then there are the white Europeans that came to America with practically nothing. And even today, some of us, who just happen to have white skin have to overcome the stereotype of automatically being a racist. White people have been slaves too.

White slavery, white slave trade, and white slave traffic historically refer to the enslavement of Europeans by non-Europeans, as part of the Arab, Barbary and Ottoman slave trades, as well as by Europeans, such as the Viking's slaves or European Galley slaves. From Antiquity, European slaves were common during the reign of Ancient Rome. The most modern use of the term can also mean sexual slavery, including forced prostitution and human trafficking.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

They have no collective history and accomplishments. This is hecause they were never racialised and never had to fight as a racialised group for anything.

If that was all that ye said, then it would not have been a problem. Of course, everyone knows that the “it’s okay to be white” thing is a teojan horse for racism.

Lol. You should look up how the word came about.

If you want to whine about how taking your papers, while you are lying to people, is a horrible attack that deserves violence, then yes, you are a snowflake.
