White Pride? Wait, Isn’t That Against the Law?
I came across a website recently that sells T-shirts that say, “White Pride – Save Our Culture.” It was immediately off putting and I felt guilty. Why? Because political correctness has done its work and for no other reason.
It’s fine to speak of “Brown Pride” or “Black Pride.” Ultimate Fighting Champion (UFC), Cain Velasquez has “Brown Pride” tattooed across his chest. Dana White, the head of UFC and white, says, only a “redneck, hillbilly, country-bumpkin out in the middle of somewhere would consider ‘White Pride’ to be appropriate.”
Essentially then, if I am proud of being white, I am a racist. Why? Because that’s what political correctness teaches. It’s okay if I wear a T-shirt that says I’m Proud to Be Italian, or French, or some other nationality, but I dare not wear a T-shirt that announces how proud I am of being white. There’s an unwritten law that says if I do, I am immediately understood to be racist.
Yet, everyone else can talk about their particular culture and the color of their skin. White people? We have to tone it down. We cannot discuss it because that offends people of color.
I’ve been studying and writing about political correctness for some time now and I’m appalled at how it has made discourse between the races that much more difficult and how people of color are allowed to speak their minds without penalty. In fact, on a near-daily basis, we hear the racist rantings of Al Sharpton and others like him and his rants are accepted as legitimate. He is allowed to express himself in ways that do nothing to engender a spirit of grace between the races.
White people? The only white people who are really allowed to speak their minds are those who agree with the likes of the Al Sharptons of the world. The rest of us are supposed to shut up. We are supposed to feel terrible about the fact that we are white. We are supposed to come to a point where we should seriously consider apologizing to as many black people as possible. Sorry to disappoint, but I’m not going to feel bad about being white, nor do I plan on apologizing to people of color. Besides, Chris Matthews did that for whites, but apparently it didn’t take. Oh well. He tried.
If a black man named Derrick Bell (who conceived of the racist ‘Critical Race Theory’), says that he lives to harass white people, he’s allowed because of the issue of slavery. If black people begin to believe (based on Critical Race Theory) that it is impossible for blacks to be racist and their anger is simply a reaction to their ancestors having been enslaved and the many perceived racial inequities that exist today, that is perfectly acceptable and understood as a reality for blacks.
This same Derrick Bell who admitted that he lives to harass white people visited the Obama White House on two separate occasions in 2010. What do you think, that he was mentoring Obama on how to also live to harass white people?
I think most would agree that if a white person claimed they lived to harass black people, there would be severe problems. Of course, the late Derrick Bell was a professor at Harvard. He was black. Ostensibly, he had experienced a good deal of animosity and racism, I’m assuming. Who knows how much of it was created by his own poor attitude towards white people.
Because of political correctness (aka Cultural Marxism), if a black man stands on the dais at the Olympics and gives the salute for “black power,” that is fine. No one should complain and those who do are probably racists anyway.
I realized when I first noticed the website selling “white pride” T-shirts, that I immediately felt guilty for even wanting to purchase a shirt. Then I realized that political correctness had done its work. No one would bat an eye if we saw a black man wearing a “black pride” T-shirt. No one would be upset to see a young Hispanic woman wearing a “brown pride” T-shirt. To see a white person wearing a “white pride” T-shirt? Racist!
Tell me, as you read through this article, was something picking away at you to find a way to call me “racist”? That might happen even if you’re a white person.
If you are a white person, do you feel the need to make it known that you do not in any way, shape, or form agree with my concerns and you want to be sure that people of color to know you don’t agree because you don’t want them to think you’re a “racist.”
Political correctness has changed things. It allows people of color to be racist, while telling them they are not racist and for the most part, have no capacity to be such. This explains why black on white crime is rarely considered to be a hate crime and rarely reported on the national news. It’s essentially a non-event. But, when the reverse is true, political correctness dictates that it must be a race-crime and reported in-depth.
Would I wear a T-shirt that says I’m proud of being white? I would like to because I like who I am and that includes my race. But it would create too many problems. There are more important things in life than having to face the wrath of racists who would stupidly believe that by wearing such a shirt, I am actually announcing that I’m a racist. Why give the buggers that chance?
Political correctness is destroying society. It’s been happening for a while and it appears to be picking up speed.
Hey, maybe I can buy a T-shirt and just wear it around the home?by
