View Full Version : Proud to be...

I go to a very liberal college (SUNY New Paltz). As such, there are all sorts of minority groups out there on campus, putting up posters saying "Black pride" or "Latino pride" or "Proud to be a woman" or whatever. You get the idea.

Sometimes I get the feeling that I am not supposed to be proud of myself. I'm a white male, middle class, college student. I have no black pride, I have no womanly pride. And if I go out and say "I'm proud to be white" I will be labeled a racist on the spot.

So I'm gonna do it anyway.

I'm proud to be caucasian. I'm proud to have roots in Europe (Ireland and Italy). I'm proud to come from a line of people who developed such innovative technologies, philosophies, governments, and so on.

I'm proud to be a man. I'm proud to have been bestowed within my body the physical means to protect those I love. I'm proud that my muscle and bone structure are more refined, stronger, faster. I'm proud that I have within me the natural instinct to protect my mate from any harm that may come to her.

I'm proud to be a computer nerd. Yes, I said it, nerd. I spend more time on the computer in a day than a lot of people spend on it in a week. I can build them, refine them, tune them, fix them. I can make a computer that will emit more light than your average city block. People might look at me funny when I say these things, but these same people will be saying "Could you have a look at my computer?" the next time it breaks down on them.

(disclaimer for the overly sensitive: None of this is meant to imply that I, or any of the things I mentioned above, are superior in any way to any other group.)

Use this thread to let out the pride that others might tear you down for. DO NOT use this thread to rip on people for being proud of things you don't agree with. If it goes that way, I will ask a mod to close it, or I will delete it myself. This is not a debate thread.

I'm proud to be a cultural mutt. I'm proud to have such a mixed ethnic background.
I'm proud to be a computer nerd and a talented artist. I'm proud of my willingness to make people feel good and that I can make people laugh.
Most of all I'm proud of my faults because they are what make me human, and what make me who I am.
I'm proud of my ability to over come all obstacles, both mental and physical.
I'm proud of my fighting abilities, mathematical abilities, and my imagination.
I am proud that I tie myself to no religion or single belief, I am proud to be myself and I am proud of MY beliefs.

Most of all I'm proud to call a lot of you people here my friends. :)

......unfortunately, my ancestors were either drunken Irish whores, or .....'men' that slept with anyone that moved.



As a result....I am like 16 different races...lol....so sad...I have nothing to be proud of...^^

I have no religion, I used to be a Christian but abandoned that...I was never proud to be one, it simply lost me a few good friends.


I have no pride.
I have hung out with people who are all into Asian pride....for years.
and I’m not even Asian...but still I manage to accidently find the ones who are all into asian pride....;)


I have gotten in many a fight with people who are into 'white power' cause they dissed my friend cythia..or this other girl......who is asian....and they were dissed for the simple fact that they were asian.

how about, no.



that’s how much pride I have.

I'm proud of not labeling or stereotyping people. Except idiots. They deserve to be labeled. Pretty sure a lot of people agree with me on that...

And overall, proud of being whoever I choose to be.

I'm a computer genius nerd. :D
I'm a Christian.
I'm NOT proud that a lot of Americans say "I'm proud to be American". I hate those types of people. They should be a little humbler. Easy for them to say that, when they're rich and well-fed. Instead, I'll say, I'm GLAD to be an American.

I'm not rich or above anyone else. And I am proud to be an American. Of course, if I was born in Canada, I would now be saying "I am proud to be Canadian," or born in Austria, "I am proud to be Austrian," etc.

You hate those types of people? For feeling proud to be a certain nationality?

Shame.

Why are you asking me that? You should have your own feelings. If you meant that my feelings are regarded toward my av and sig, no. Im just proud to be white. Is that bad to say or something? If it is, then, well, I dont care, Ill still continue to be proud.

so you are wishing you were as much of a hypocrite as he was?

i'm proud to be caucasian myself but i don't really put any stock into supporting one of the biggest fools in history.

hell even if you don't see it that way you could always just cut to the chase and start using kkk members as your avatar.
