    This should start a good controversial debate

    PROUD TO BE WHITE

    This is great.
    I have been wondering about why Whites are racists, and no other race is.
    Proud to be White
    Michael Richards makes his point...

    Michael Richards better known as Kramer from TVs Seinfeld does make a good
    point.

    This was his defense speech in court after making racial comments in his
    comedy act.
    He makes some very interesting points...

    Someone finally said it... How many are actually paying attention to this?
    There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, etc. And then there are just Americans. You pass me on the
    street and sneer in my direction.
    You call me 'White boy,' 'Cracker,' 'Honkey,' 'Whitey,' 'Caveman' ... and
    that's OK.

    But when I call you, Nigger, Kike, Towel head, Sand-nigger, Camel Jockey,
    Beaner,
    Gook, or Chink ... You call me a racist. You say that whites commit a lot of
    violence against you... so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to
    live?

    You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day.
    You have Black History Month. You have Cesar Chavez Day. You have Yom
    Hashoah.
    You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi. You have the NAACP. You have BET...
    If we had WET (White Entertainment Television) we'd be racists.
    If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists.
    If we had White History Month, we'd be racists.

    If we had any organization for only whites to 'advance' OUR lives we'd be
    racists.

    We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and
    then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce.

    Wonder who pays for that??
    A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but any color
    can be in the Miss America pageant.

    If we had a co llege fund that only gave white students scholarships...You
    know we'd be racists.

    There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US .

    Yet if there were 'White colleges' That would be a racist college.

    In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race
    and rights.

    If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists.

    You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're not afraid
    to announce it.

    But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.

    You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer
    shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug-dealer running from the
    law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.

    I am proud...But you call me a racist.

    Why is it that only whites can be racists??

    There is nothing improper about this e-mail...
    Let's see which of you are proud enough to send it on.
    I sadly don't think many will. That's why we have lost most of OUR RIGHTS
    in this country. We won't stand up for ourselves !
    BE PROUD TO BE WHITE !
    It's not a crime yet, but getting real close!


    LET THE DEBATE BEGIN!

    They will forget what you said,
    they will forget what you did,
    but they will never forget the way you made them feel.

    Personally I think what he said was horrid, uncalled for and has made me lose all respect for him.

    Somebody forwarded me this article and I thought I would throw it out here to get some other peoples opinions.

    It's fake, Richards never gave this "defense speech" : http://urbanlegends.about.com/od/dub...elrichards.htm

    dear naughty lady, i think his stand up act that night would have also made you loose all respect for him...as a comedian that is
    guess who doesnt need driver side air bag?

    People will always want to belong

    And in order to belong to something, there have to be those who don't. The easiest way to seperate people is by race....and sadly, as a society as a whole, we will probably continue to do so for a very long time.

    What I have never understood is the whole 'ethnic pride' thing. Pride a word which should be reserved for something you work extraordinarrly hard for, give you all to, and then achieve. It's not meant for something which just is.

    Don't get me wrong - I'm happy to be Canadian...but I'm not proud to be Canadian. I feel very fortunate and blessed to have been born in this corner of the world - but I didn't do anything to get here....nor have I done anything to make this country a wonderful place to live. Pride is such an overused word - and becuase of it - hate is far too prevelant.

    Vancouver Angel, have you ever DEMANDED that the majority of people should do without traditional holiday symbols just because YOU, the minority (in number), find them offensive? Have you ever been to court DEMANDING that a child should be allowed to attend school armed with a (supposedly only) symbolic knife? Have you ever DEMANDED that you should recieve special treatment by airport security because of your religious beliefs? No? Then you HAVE done something to make this country a wonderful place to live...You have conformed to the laws and accepted norms of the MAJORITY of Canadians.

    As I have previously stated elsewhere in another thread...I have no issues with a melting pot society, until it starts to infringe on MY rights. Perhaps, if more people felt fortunate to be in Canada, instead of demanding to treated as if they were still in their country of birth or ancestry, there would be less mistrust and outright hatred. Respect and acceptance are two way streets.

    I thought Richards apologized and is back to feeling guilty for being white?

    I too, am proud to be WHITE!.......... Oh Snap, sorry, I am not white. Still I love White TV, movies, music, food(Poutine at 3AM in the winter...YUM!), women, neihborhoods, and so much more. The white people I surround myself with, do not see me as the cool Asian guy, just the cool guy....... and I don't see my friends as my white friends........ just my friends with hot sisters! HA! Just kidding about that last one....... but c'mon, you should see my friend's sisters!

    Racism can be a real problem, but most of the people screaming racism are the biggest racists that I know of. It is sad that most people have a huge blindspot when viewing themselves, and what they say. It is even sadder that the real racists, know fully well that their words are full of hate and racism, and say them anyway, because they know that they can get away with it.

    White congressman shut out of Black Caucus
    U.S. Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif., and his request to be allowed to join the caucas, despite his race.

    As an aside, this hobby has given me the opportunity to experience being with women of other races that I, almost certainly, would not have otherwise had.

    There are some significant physical and cultural differences and I love it.

    The "Reasonable Accomadation" comission exposed what I thought was an ugly side of rural Quebec. The other side of that is that there are a few Muslim organizations that seem to think that the various provincial Human Rights Commissions are their own personnal servants.

    I rarely see that happen. And who said it was OK?

    But when I call you, Nigger, Kike, Towel head, Sand-nigger, Camel Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink ... You call me a racist.
    Yes, it is.

    You say that whites commit a lot of
    violence against you... so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to
    live?
    Poverty and population density.

    You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day. You have Black History Month. You have Cesar Chavez Day. You have Yom Hashoah. You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi. You have the NAACP. You have BET...
    If we had WET (White Entertainment Television) we'd be racists.
    If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists.
    If we had White History Month, we'd be racists.
    You are free to have those things. Provided you receive no government funding for it. And anyone can be called a racist. Freedom of speech.

    If we had any organization for only whites to 'advance' OUR lives we'd be racists.
    You can have such an organization, and you can be called anything. Best Buy can sell stereos, and I can voice my opinion that their products suck.

    We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce.

    Wonder who pays for that??
    Politicians are voted for by the demographics that they represent.

    A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but any color can be in the Miss America pageant.
    Talk to Donald Trump. Seems he is interested in mass appeal.

    If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships...You know we'd be racists.
    You can. Again, if you have no problem with the negative PR.

    There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US .

    Yet if there were 'White colleges' That would be a racist college.

    In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race
    and rights.

    If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists.

    You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you're not afraid
    to announce it.

    But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.
    Again, feel free to do your own stuff. And the remainder of society is perfectly free to opine on your efforts.

    You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug-dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.
    Actually, intra-racial crimes are more frequent. And police officers are sworn to uphold the law, not break it to try to enforce it.

    I am proud...But you call me a racist.

    Why is it that only whites can be racists??
    Why do you feel that the remainder of society must fully agree with your pride and beliefs?
