Is it ok to be proud of being white? Why or why not?

White people have been behind countless things that are considered some of the greatest achievements of mankind. They have also committed some of the worst atrocities in human history. However, every race has resorted to slavery on a massive scale, carried out genocides, brutal warfare, and participated in things like racism and xenophobia. Whether anyone likes it or not, I am proud to be white. I think it is a terrible thing that some children hate the fact that they are white, which is a real thing because I’ve seen it numerous times personally. I believe it is wrong for anyone to be ashamed of things they can’t change like their skin color, even if they are Caucasian with white skin and blue eyes.

I don’t think there is an issue being proud of your race, I think what the issue is, is being proud of bad things that your race may have done. I can’t speak for you obviously, I don’t know why you’re proud of your race. None the less, I don’t think it’s all that important to feel the need yourself to stereotypes. I think what’s most important is that you’re able to be proud of your own accomplishments. Your race shouldn’t reflect you, and unfortunately I have seen a lot of stereotypes being thrown around lately, not just about white people but countless other races as well. Anyways, in the end I think it’s more important to look at yourself as an individual person, but I don’t see an issue with being proud of your race so long as you aren’t harming anyone.
