I think it is a fair statement to say we are all entitled to love and appreciate our own ethnicity (not race) no matter what it is. But what I see is a lot of white people (American,Canadian, British, Irish, Scottish, German, French, ect) being called racists for doing this. I do not understand this. When it comes to churches, groups, and other segregated areas it seems the only ones who are viewed as being racism (for the most part) are white ones. It is perfectly fine for black people to have their black panther group even though they talk about killing whites. To get pissed when whites did the same thing (KKK) is messed up. What I see is a lot of crap happening all over the world where the poorer cultures are being entitled to hand outs and benefits from the white groups. They take these hand outs and this help then spit in the faces of the people who helped them. I am not one of those white people who go around screaming that whites are the "superior race". I don't think one "race" is greater or less than one to the next... But apparently, everyone else does and if I did think this, I would be a racist because I am white. "The world population can be divided into 4 major races, namely white/Caucasian, Mongoloid/Asian, Negroid/Black, and Australoid. This is based on a racial classification made by Carleton S. Coon in 1962. There is no universally accepted classification for “race”, however, and its use has been under fire over the last few decades. The United Nations, in a 1950 statement, opted to “drop the term ‘race’ altogether and speak of “ethnic groups”. In this case, there are more than 5,000 ethnic groups in the world, according to a 1998 study published in the Scientific " Racism back in the day was all about cultural differences but today it is mainly about stereotypes and appearance. Technically speaking, true racism doesn't exist because as far as the term "race" goes, Science don't believe in it. There is only one race and that is the human race. What it going on is Ethnicism. Where people are judging each other based on their ethnicity. Actually, me using terms like white and black is actually contributing to the term "racism" still being used. We should be calling each other what we are based on ethnic descent. Since I am mixed and you clearly can't tell what ethnic groups I come from, I would just be claimed to the land and be an American. Since "black people" can be clearly identified as being descents from Africa, They would be African-American. I think you get where I am going with this. These terms are used but not enough. People need to stop identifying as white, black, ect and be what they actually are. You are either a mixed product of the country you were born in (I am American) or you are a decent from another country which would make you "blank"-American. This is the same for every other country... or at least it should be. People who continue to use artificial words to describe a "set race" of people is not only backwards logic, but completely contradictory. Racism itself is a walking contradiction. As mentioned, Ethnicsm is what is happening here. We all essentially came from the same place which makes us ONE RACE so to say someone is a racist is ti imply they hate all humans. If you want to end "racism" stop using the word and start seeing everyone as equal instead of as stereotypes. Not all white people like mayonnaise or drink tea, not all black people are thugs and criminals, not all hispanics are drug pushers... With that all being said I see no reason why it is a bad thing to love your ethnicity and be proud of your heritage so long as it is not steamed from "racism" or as I call it, "ethnicism". At the end of the day, we all bleed the same color. Be proud of who you are be it American, African, British, Canadian, ect or a mix of two. And don't let anyone say you are racist for doing it. And by all means, if the law permits it, celebrate your ethnic holidays and ethnicity but don't get pissed when other people in the country you are in choose to do so as well. Take it as a compliment because they are praising your heritage, not mocking it. You want to make America great again? Allow us all to love and teach our heritage (of course in a logical and law abiding manner). There is only one race and that is the human race. For the love of God (or whatever you believe in), learn to love yourselves so you can better love and respect each other.
