Proud To Be White

Someone finally said it.

How many are actually paying attention to this?


There are African Americans,

Mexican Americans,

Asian Americans,

Arab Americans,

Native Americans, etc.

.....And then there are just -



You pass me on the street

And sneer in my direction.

You Call me 'White boy,'

'Cracker,' 'Honkey,'

'Whitey,' 'Caveman,'

.....And that's OK.


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 Hispanic History Month.

You have Martin Luther King Day.

You have Asian History Month.

You have Black History Month.

You have Cesar Chavez Day.

You have Ma'uled Al-Nabi.

You have Yom Hashoah.

You have Kawanza.

You have the NAACP.

And 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'OURlives,

.....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?


If we had a college fund that only gave

White students scholarships

......You know we'd be racists.


There are over 60 openly-proclaimed

Black-only Colleges in theUS,

Yet if there were 'White-only 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 red,

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

Who is running from the LAW and

Posing a threat to ALL of society

.....You call him a racist.


I am proud.

.....But, you call me a racist.


Why is it that only


Can be racists?

There is nothing improper about this message.

Let's see which of you

Are proud enough to send it on...
