Many of the great things that white people have done have been accomplished using the labor, resources, or land of other nations of people. We also define our race in terms of other races. White people are the "normal" race and everyone else is different. I believe that is bigoted.
The answer is that white pride is perceived as racist because most of the people who promote it are white separatists or supremacists using the term to reference white power and dominion, whereas most people of color promoting pride in their respective heritages are using the term more appropriately as an invocation of cultural solidarity.
White pride, even in the countries I'm going to mention, is not racist. It's just in some countries the meaning has been ruined. In the case of Denmark and Britain, it's hard to be proud of whiteness without being seen as a racist Klan member or imperialist. But in the case of Germany, Italy and Spain, they don't have that history.
Yes, White Pride, like all racist supremacy, is inherently racist. It is wrong to think that a person is better than another simply because of the color of their skin. There are no inherent preferences in one race over another. We are all human. Anyone who thinks otherwise is inherently racist and wrong.
If the world was shrunk to 100 people, 57 would be Asian, 70 would be non-white with only 30 white. Whites are not a majority by single race or by population. If other minorities can have pride organizations then why can't whites? If whites don't teach hate or superiority they should have as much pride in their color and European ancestry as any other group. Not allowing it is oppression, oppression is racism and bigotry.

Just because someone's proud of an intrinsic characteristic of their body doesn't mean they dislike everything that is not it. I'm proud of being a woman. Lots of women are. But that doesn't mean we want men eradicated, that we hate them. White people, their history, their cultures have just as a much of a right to be valued, respected, and stood for as any other. White people have done bad things, yes, but pretty much every group in history has as well. The collective does not define the individual, and being proud to be white doesn't make you somehow vehemently opposed to every other race. It just makes you someone who's proud of their ethnicity.
Google definition of racist-a person who believes that a particular race is superior to another.
Google definition of pride-a feeling or deep pleasure or satisfaction derived from one's own achievements, the achievements of those with whom one is closely associated, or from qualities or possessions that are widely admired.
By the definitions, White pride is no more racist than Asian pride, Black ( or African American) pride, Latino pride, or any other race based pride. Thinking one's race has done good doesn't inherently mean that it's better. CAN white pride be racist? Absolutely! Just like ALL THE OTHERS!
The question doesn't ask if white "supremacy" is racist. The word here is "pride". Pride is not synonymous with supremacy, that's why they are two different words. It's also why gay pride is not called gay supremacy. Yes. I am proud to be white. No, that pride does not make me racist.
What with black pride, gay pride, brown pride what could be wrong with white pride. Why is it that only white pride considered racist? Right now there is a big push to "check your privilege" which is designed to make white people ashamed of being white. When ever somebody tells me to check your privilege my reply is Check your brain.
Omg it’s like when will this stuff go away.. Best attempt at this from a 23 yr old white man living in texas’ perspective. #1. Every race should be able to have pride in their race. PERIOD.#2 people where I’m from contrary to popular belief want all this stuff gone. Let’s be one human race, fine by me, or let’s all be able to express and rejoice in our heritage equally without fear of repercussions... HOWEVER, what is completely not right and very racist at a very basic level of for certain races get praised for ethnic pride, and another have to constantly walk on eggshells...And the reason being? Because my great great great great grandpa may or may not owned slaves? Now I don’t have a masters degree in history or anything.. But I know for a fact that all races were enslaved at one point in time (whites by other whites, and even Caribbean/Muslim had a huge white Christian slave trade) if people would just start acting like the preach we should instead of just preaching about it maybe something could be accomplished, but I don’t see that happening. I have black friends ,and, I know, how cliche of me right, but it’s just the god awful truth.. I don’t see color. I see ignorance, of which every race has a plenty. Growing up I stayed over at clack friends houses, them at mine. Brothers, just as much as any of my whites friends.. So to sum it up, if a 23 yr old republican white man living in TEXAS has this thing figured out, can’t you all see this is just a distraction from the main problem. I hope someone reads this and finds comfort knowing there are good people out there and don’t buy into the hype
To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer’s head. There’s also Rick’s nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they’re not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick’s existential catchphrase “Wubba Lubba Dub Dub,” which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev’s Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon’s genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. How I pity them. 😂
And yes, by the way, i DO have a Rick & Morty tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the ladies’ eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 😎
I'm White, and I can't say that I'm proud to be White. WHY? Because I did not accomplish my Whiteness, I had nothing to do with it. ALL racial pride is for weak, insecure people, with no accomplishments to feel proud of, so they cling on to the only thing they have, their race. The only reason to celebrate White pride, is because it annoys the racists who hate White people, like ANTIFA and the SPLC. And yes, White people need to stand up to people and organizations who hate White people.
I don't really find a reason for it to be racist. There's nothing wrong with being comfortable with who you are. However the white supremacist cucks and neo-Nazi nut jobs have twisted it's meaning. However if you prefer to use a term that would cause less controversy, you could always use either European pride, or pride specific to the type of European you are. I for example use Scottish, Irish, English, Welsh etc etc in place of white.
Japanese people revere their culture and celebrate it. They work to conserve their culture and traditions, but at the same time they don't have a problem with mixing with other populations as long as they are willing to integrate themselves into the culture.
I feel that white nationalists will be more successful in preserving European culture if they take the same approach to nationalism as the Japanese.
