Can I get a White Power? Red State published this headline, “The Stigma Around Being White Has to Stop“, on Wednesday, October 26th.
It’s okay to be white.
It’s very weird that this phrase is associated with white supremacy when there’s not really anything supremacist in the statement. The phrase doesn’t mean something along the lines of “whites first” or even “white pride.” It’s just a statement indicating that having white skin isn’t a bad thing.
Yet, mainstream society seems to have adopted that idea. Being born white has somehow become the same as the church’s idea of original sin. It comes with guilt that you never agreed to take on, and for some reason, responsibilities that you shouldn’t be burdened with.
No other race has this issue in America. Being prideful in one’s skin color is even encouraged if you’re ethnicity is anything but caucasian. No one looks at this as a sign of racism or racial supremacy.
Thomas Robb, the National Director of the Knights Party of the Ku Klux Klan, centrally based in Harrison, Arkansas said, “It’s true, in America you have black pride, brown pride, yellow pride, and even the satanic rainbow pride, but if you’re White and you show an ounce of pride, you’re labeled racist. Isn’t that unbelievable? You’re racist for being White in a White, Christian country! Imagine what would happen if say, Africa had a minute 13% White population, and the Whites called the native blacks racist. I don’t think that would go over well. Not in Africa, or any other non-white country. So why do we allow here in our White, Christian country? If more White people don’t start taking a stand, and showing their White pride, in the very near future America won’t be a White, Christian country.”
