As a whitey (blonde hair, blue eyes even) I have ZERO problem with other races having tats like "brown pride" or even the slightly-racist "affirmative action" movement - which was used poorly as an example by xxpillowxxjp.


But if I ever saw someone with a white pride tattoo, I would instantly think he was a trashy racist POS and would consider hate-criming his face off. Anyone who defends it as being in-equal is racist, incredibly naive or just arguing for the sake of arguing.

I would somewhat agree with this statement. Although both Brown and White Pride tattoos could at least be theoretically considered to have the same basis the fact that White Pride tattos carry such a strong stigma attached to them that you basically your accepting that upon yourself. If you know and everyone does that society is going to view you as a racist than choosing to accept that stigma means you have to agree with the beliefs your being labeled with.

Affirmative action is a counter-racism legislation. It's not racist inherently. Sometimes it sucks for whites, and honestly I think the methodology is excruciatingly flawed, but in and of itself, it's not racist.

I honestly don't like affirmative action, I think there's much more positive things that can be done to try to reverse the negative effects of slavery and pre-civil rights than just giving blacks jobs and education spots on a first-come first-serve basis.

<<proud to be white...which would be weird by itself>>

<<Cain's tattoo simply means that he is proud of his heritage>>.

The Nazi stuff is offensive for sure, but it's "weird" to be proud of White heritage, but OK to be proud of Hispanic heritage??

You're not proud of your heritage, but have ZERO problem with other races being proud of theirs? Weak. Everyone is entitled to be proud of their heritage as long as they don't hate people of other heritages.

My heritage isnt innocent enough to be proud of and I acknowledge that. And "white pride" does imply a lot of hate mongering.

I think he was more pointing out that the association is what matters. Hitler didnt invent the swastika, he just adopted it as a symbol. It is just associated as a symbol of hate due to the historical context in which it became the most infamous. Saying something like white pride is not neccesarily a racist comment, but that is how it is almost always going to be taken.

Oh, and probably because BET was founded in 1980, which was like...maybe 10 years after blacks had gained civil rights, and they felt they needed a network that would prominently display them on television....seeing as, according to your fancy little graph there, they are a mere 15 percent of the population on average.

Also, I attempted to humor you despite your absolute complete lack of intellect and research this so called shut down of White Entertainment Television...guess, what...it's F***ING FICTIONAL. If you had any smidgen of intellectual ******* curiosity, you'd realize that when you read news on "The Spoof" it's probably not ******* real. No REAL company would make a White Entertainment Television....it's entirely redundant, would only appeal to overt racists, and the Country Music Channel already exists.

After that, I could explain why affirmative action exists, (the idea is very simple, actually, albeit controversial) but that would simply be a waste of time considering anyone with any desire not be an ignorant bumpkin can simply do the research himself. Which....albeit may be a little MORE difficult when you have a closed-mind as a result of living in such a historically WARM, OPEN MINDED, and PROGRESSIVE city such as Memphis, Tennessee....not sarcasm...obviously.

Again, more paranoid delusions. Please do me a favour and report to your boss that a black man called you cracker....if he says "It's okay Jim! That's not racist, it's okay!" I'll personally organize a "Free the white man" campaign across America for the injustices committed against them.

Here in civilization, that black man would be fired. Shocking!

Here in the real world, a professional black man hasn't called a white man cracker and escaped with his head in.....ever. But wait, a comedian said it! That must mean that it's universally okay for blacks to say cracker! A white comedian might say that n-word....but then some black people might be offended by it so he'll shy away. Why might he be offended by it?!!? You ask?!?! Maybe because when he was 7 years old he was marching down the streets with his family and white people were shouting at him while throwing rocks, bricks and spitting at him...then they got sprayed by fire hoses! Maybe it strikes a little more to home with him then a "slur" used against whites to indicate that their ancestors were dominant over them?
Nah! Seems far-fetched.

But wait! I do remember a white comedian using the word!

Oh wait! That's not a joke! That's a racial tirade and he even threw in a lynching reference to boot! Poor white man....no one understands his sense of humor.

And look at the racist black people getting away with calling him a cracker. They didn't even report that in the story! It's biased I tell you!

But um...nice irrelevant rant there. Now we can actually go back to the issue at hand instead of you closeted racists grasping at straws.
People are still bothering with this goof? Was my warning about his complete and utter inability to accept or even entertain the opinions of others not clear? Is it not obvious that he cannot help but act a smarmy, condescending turd whenever someone doesn't subscribe to his take on the world? Run... run quickly, before the blob of douchiness envelops us all!

Unless you'd much rather stick around and be dubbed a racist purely because you disagree. Because, you know, that's how things work in this guy's world.
