Whoa, whoa, WHOA. The post I am about to quote is eighteen different kinds of wrong. Allow me!
I am sorry, but you ARE NOT a minority. Therefore you have not seen and experienced the racism that we have.
I have to be in a minority group to experience racism the same way a person in a "real" minority group does? No, I'm sorry. I have been treated negatively because I am white more times than I can count. As I said before, I get called "white boy" all the time at work, I have had black people not include me in basketball games because I was white. I could go on and on and on, but my point here is that you can be of ANY race and experience racism the same way that anyone else from any other race does.
Much of the immigration crap IS racist.
I understand that this issue hits very close to home for you, but this is a knee jerk reaction. I said in my above post that the fact that Americans seem to notice the immigration of Mexicans more than any one other group of people may be racist IN AND OF ITSELF, but not wanting someone to come to your country illegally is not a racist issue. Again, I don't care if you come here legally. That one of the principals this country is founded upon. I only have a problem if you come here ILLEGALLY, whether you're brown, white, black, purple or green.
but you have never been treated like we have.
Again, this is a knee jerk reaction. How do you know I have never been treated in ways that Mexican/Black/anyone else people have? You don't know that, you're making a generalization here, painting in broad strokes, I might add.
And there is a HUGE difference from us saying "brown pride" etc. to you saying "white pride."
No, in my mind, there is not. "White Power" is, of course, associated with the Aryan Brotherhood and Hitler. These are bogeymen, the same bogeymen that any group of "pride" people can have. Fanatics exist in all shapes, sizes, and colors, my friend. If one group of people can celebrate their heritage and be proud of it, while it is all socially acceptable, why can another not?
Mexican pride, Irish pride, Navajo pride, etc. makes much more sense to me. It has nothing to do with race, but heritage, patriotism, culture etc.
So white folks can't be patriotic without it being racist simultaneously?
they will NEVER truly understand what we minorities feel and experience in terms of racism.
Knee jerk reaction. You may find this hard to swallow, but I have had more than my fair share of hateful treatment because of my race. It is irrelevant how much racist treatment someone receives. It is not a contest. Racism is racism, and just because it's your opinion that your group has received more bad treatment than another (note that I did not say minority group) does not make it any different.
