Pride

Why is it if I say I'm a proud white Male I am label a racist and if a person of color says that they are praised.

The pendulum for acceptability has swung the wrong way.

I suppose I'm "proud" emotionally of all sorts of things, but PRIDE is considered one of seven deadly sins for a reason, and it gets in the way of other good things. The term has been adulterated to fit a narrative for all kinds of groups. Better just to be happy.

I'm a proud Ford and Mustang owner. I'm sure a Chebby and Camaro owner would call me names. And I could care less.


In before the lock.

I'm proud to live in the greatest country the world has going currently, warts and all! And I'm not much of a flag waver.

^^^^^^ That'll get him posting!

@mrbreez, do you want us to be proud for you too? What is your point? I'd be happy to point out to you why this is, uh, odd to post on a Mustang forum, but I've learned that the audience here really isn't keen to having such discussions. So... I won't bother. This thread is not about my point of view, so I will not state it. Note, I am also a middle-aged, middle income white male. I really am the stereotype for someone that would own a classic Mustang. So out of morbid curiosity, I am interested to hear your motive for starting this thread. I promise in advance that I will not rebut any argument you make. I may argue any facts you state with facts of my own, but I will hold no judgement as to why you feel the way you do. Your feelings are just a valid as mine, and this is your thread.

Im white and a proud American, in todays liberal world, Im a white nationalist.

Im also very pro military.

My Grand dad was drafted in WWI, my two uncles served in WWII, my dad served during Vietnam, was in a combat zone, but didnt see combat.

Im proud of all who serve and served, regardless of race, gender or citizenship.

History is one of my hobbies, I learn something new everyday.

I heavily agree... There is serious Reverse discrimination against the White Male today.....and even Males in general if you really look at it.

Society is currently screwed up...But don't worry, These things have a way of straightening themselves out...

...and that's all I'm going to say about that..

I agree. Given the way relationships and child bearing with the current generation have far less racial boundaries, eventually people in the future for the most part will have similar color and features. Fear not, we will find other reasons to hate and try to kill each other.

Why the hell is this on a mustang site? This is mustangs. No politics or ect. If you don't know the answer look somewhere else for them. But first thing is, you need to look up the definition of White Nationalist. And if you are proud to be a white nationalist, that is your choice. We don't need this separation of the members here because of this crap. This should be closed

The color of a person's skin is the last thing I care about. Bragging about, or criticizing someone for a feature they were born with is as pointless as discussing bellybuttons. Like Abraham Lincoln said, "Whatever you are, be the best one you can be." I think that applies to a lot more things than just race.



Back to the car stuff with me.
