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.

You need to be proud of your genetics unless your gonna sit in pity for the rest of your life, wondering why you were born opposite to what u prefer. People need to take in the positive facts, rather than dwell on the negativity.

I wouldn’t say that because it sounds super conservative but you do NOT have to be ashamed of your race

You shouldn’t be ashamed of you race no matter what however white ppl should be ashamed of what they have and their ancestors have done in terms of slavery genocide and other atrocities. The fact that we are discussing if white ppl should be proud to be white or not shows how far we still have got to go in terms or acceptance and equality for POC. We are unable to admit what we have done wrong and instead or trying to make the world a better place we are here debating whether you can be proud to be white. We are turning ourselves into the victims when we are taking part in systemic racism every day. Well that is my opinion anyway I am happy to be further educated by anyone who’s knows more than me
