In American society African Americans can say openly that they have "black pride". If a white person did this (said that they had "white pride") they would be called a racist. Is this hypocritical?

Why does the NAACP exist? To make money off of promoting hate. When Obama was elected in 08 he received 96% of the black vote and (I think) just under 50% of the white vote. Do you see the possibility of a problem there

A race filter would be interesting here.

Well I don't really think it makes sense for anyone to show either pride or shame in genetic traits over which they had no control. Pride in a distinct culture you've contributed to, sure. Physical traits you earned (muscles, weight loss), sure.

But yes, for those among us who think pride is an accurate representation of their feelings towards their ethnicity (rather than contentment, etc.), it is hypocritical. Can't fight a dying fire with a flame-thrower.

I should be able to have pride for my race. I should not be called a racist just because I am proud of myself.

Where are the ppl that voted no? You really need to defend your position and explain your vote for those unenlightened ppl like myself.
