Quote:To answer your question, Black Pride as a culture began as a direct response to predominant white supremacy, to sentiments of black inferiority, and to separate but equal doctrine. In short, we did not segregate ourselves.
Quote:There's your answer right there. People are promoting their culture precisely because their culture has been held back; it has nothing to do with thinking our way is better or right. Some of us realize this. I'm straight as straight can get, but I applaud Gay Pride in part because of all the contempt it's forced to endure.
Quote:I second both of these statements, emphatically.
That may be what the terms mean. But just the words taken exactly as they are meant.
The difference is ONLY White and Black. If it has become something else in daily use then ok. But just taken as they are...should be seen as essentially the same thing. Pride for White or Black.
I find it somewhat telling that there seems to be an issue when someone asks me what I am and I say an American/US Citizen. But others are Fill in the blank-American.
WTHeck is wrong with just being an American? That people put "Fill-in-the-blank"-American is segregationist.
Be it a color or a state or a religion...I don't think it should matter if we want to be a unified country accepting of the differences is others.
