Same with the diversity in culture.


Now our North American culture is something I would enjoy celebrating once a year in some way, or even more than once a year, if we target specific components. For example, here in the USA, "First Amendment Day" could quickly become a favorite of mine, if dedicated to celebrating free speech, free press, free assembly, and religious freedom. Hell, the more I think about First Amendment Day, the more I like it!

Somehow, this part made me smile and made me think "Oh really?" with a little cynical voice.

Free speech..., you can say whatever you want but don't try to insult: Them Mexicans, the Jews, the black (altough we prefer Afro-Americans, you might get in trouble using the word "black"),..
Also, all religions are tolerated but Christianity is still the best if you have another one you might be frowned upon...
Free press: everything may be written in the media. We shall cover/hide those little details that might upset normal people. It's something for the economical elites...

Sentences like "fighting for freedom", "free speech", "religious tolerance",... all might sound nice, in reality things still stay fucked-up even tough they dedicate a whole day on it.

I'm all for diversity. I think it would be boring if we lived in a strictly "white world" or strictly "black world" or whatever. In no way am I victimizing white people. We live in a diverse world however, I don't think we live in a completely tolerant world as well (that's kinda obvious)...but why can't we all just get along haha.

It crossed my mind that they're might be a porn channel called WET, I would watch that for sure. As far as there being a White Entertainment Network; I might watch it if there was anything interesting on.

Straight pride parades, not exactly my thing either. Ultimately I was just arguing for the sake of arguing. I don't care if there is never a WET(unless it is a porn channel), nor do I care if I ever get the chance to march in a parade that celebrates my love of cunnilingus.

Just think about it for a second though, if there was no black history month, but there was a white one; there would be a bunch of pissed of people cyring "racism". Equality is a two way street, at least, that is the idea.

wait a minute this country was already built upon, maybe you should re-read history and visualize how the europeans came and brought disease turmoil and despair to the native american indians that for thousands of years had freely roamed these very lands and known of something great and looked upon the sun and the moon to guide them in many types of rituals and concerns and healings, but were forced to swallow a europen and spanish notion called Christianity or else die! now this steel and concrete infested place we call U.S. of A. has always been here and will always remain reguardless of its downfall or excel, it will continue and Rascism is a curse for people to see in black in white rather than an oppurtunity to discren what is really reality and how to move forward and succeed in life.
many many years ago the white man enslaved the negro and later on after lincoln freed them the mexicans came voluntarily to work for the white man because the european had knowledge of handling things( brains if you will) and the mexicans had the heart of gold to work in the sun for simple food and lodge- for many years this was received o.k. on both sides till one day a hippie cried out and put thoughts in peoples heads, it was the curse of rascims- now the world is inflicted by it and we must again put ourselves in a position where we live our life and include the right man or woman for the job as needed!
rascism was never meant to be about color or creeds, it was about a true bloodline, jews and nazis were the same color, yet hitler himself tainted with jewish blood percieved to draw the line between jew and nazi blood- and man in its stupidity followed along and somehow added skin color to it aswell- fucking amazing what humans can do to just about anything to screw it up royally.
let us move forward and i commend you of the white race for sticking up for you white pride its good and me as a mexican agree that its sad when you cant be proud and show it to the world without being called a rascist! its the rascist card callers that are truely not rascist but ignorant!

Racial double standards, quite an issue here in the UK as well. There seems to be this ludicrous belief particularly amongst the new left that only white people can be racist, which obviously is the biggest load of bullshit ever no more. However more recently double standards can be identified within the religious area. Islam seems to be currently enjoying a near untouchable status in the respect that you run the risk of being tagged as a racist or charged for inciting religious and racial hatred (although there is no current law to my knowledge that outlaws criticism of Islam).

A recent matter than serves as a good example would be over the "Controversial" short film called "Fitna", you may have heard of it, it was produced by a Dutch MP called Geert Wilders. He was due to hold talks on it in the house of lords, however when he landed in the UK he was immediately sent back to the Netherlands. The government's reason for doing so was due to the risk of causing offence to the Muslims living in Britain.

You also may have noticed that earlier in my post I refered to Islam and double standards with the subject of racial hatred, it seems that Islam can also be classed as a race when it wants to be as well.

Needless to say if you was to point out these double standards as many have in the past, you are condemned as a Racist or an inciter of hatred. In my opinion the worlds emphasis on equality and diversity is working against itself.

"Fitna" was indeed a well-made short film, and I've watched the interviews Wilders had given when it was released.

To those of us here the States, "racial hatred" encompasses ethnicity and religious hatred as well.

Wilders is a bit of a goofball with the worst haircut I've seen since Beethoven but he does show a fundamental weakness we incorporated into our civilization; postmodern relativism so out of control it becomes dogma. While in the past we adored the freedom of speech, criticism and satire, we now are forced to adore the sensitivity of others. And this is abused by those sensitives to control and manipulate us. It all started with the holocaust becoming dogma but during the last decades the Leftists gained more and more ground and slowly postmodern relativism is becoming the norm, not only as a social moral direction but also as a legal one. In the past one could be looked down upon for venting certain opinions, today one can be penalized. It's a prime symptom of a cancer destroying our civilization from the inside out.

Oh yes, I'd gotten that "he's a nutter" impression from articles describing the reactions from both the average Dutch citizens and other political figures. His hair is the Netherlands version of Donald Trump's poufador.

However, he is one of the few leaders willing to stand up for, as you mentioned, the über-political correctness concerning Islam that pervades Europe these days. Luckily that attitude has not wormed its way into the hearts and minds of us here in the US, except for when it comes to black people. But that's "white guilt", and a different beast altogether. The majority here still adamantly believe that immigrants should incorporate into OUR culture, not the other way around. I think another mitigating factor is that the US just doesn't have the flood of immigrants like Europe has seen in the last 10 years. The illegal immigrants here primarily come from Mexico, and quite a number of those are here for a semi-permanent stay. With our economy is such bad shape, it's getting harder for them to find "under the table" jobs, which is the only job most of them can acquire, and what are they doing? Heading back home!

Problem solved.

We call our 'white guilt' colonial guilt. All that is rotten in previous ones is our fault. Woe is us. Except in the USA of course, there it is their fault.

Does it strike anyone else here how very Judeo-Christian the notion of "inherited guilt" is?

Not only did that beautiful mythos give us 'original sin', it also sanctifies Yahweh's penchant for punishing the children of offenders down to the Nth generation for the sins of their fathers.

It thus comes as no surprise to me how a predominantly Christian or post-Christian white populace would succumb to pangs of guilt about what their racist ancestors have done.

Yes, do not forget the past lest it be repeated - but at the same time, those who committed such cruelty were responsible for their own actions - not their descendants.
Just as a serial killer's great great granddaughter need rationally bear no guilt or responsibility for his original actions.

I, for one, am glad for the ability to see how I am in no way personally responsible for the suffering and death other whites have afflicted upon people of other colors. Thus, I have no need to feel guilt by association.

Nicely put... I don't think I could have said it any better myself. I felt guilty once, but she woke up.....

There is a stand-up comedian, Bill Burr, he does a hilarious bit on white guilt. Particularly how it is ridiculous and he even says he is "running out of white guilt". Maybe I will see if I can find it and post it in the video section.

Yes it is weird, especially when you see a civilization that is growing more and more a-religious, at the same time is incorporating some of its fundamental principles. We seem to embrace an original sin to such a degree it stagnates us and if we don't watch it, make us vulnerable enough to be obliterated. If not only culturally.

Yes the whities have done some bad bad things but hell, if it wasn't for the whities, half of the world out there would still throw rocks at animals and die at forty. I also feel not responsible for anything not caused by me. I didn't ship the Jews to their Endlösung and neither did I whip the blacks in Africa but in some strange way, they still seem to force me into a collective feeling of guilt about those acts and try to make me repent.
It is getting ridiculous to such a level that the conquered almost have a hold upon the conquerers and demand tribute from them. That's surrealism at its best.

Surrealism - or Foxwood Casino on injun land in Connecticut. \:\)

I paid tribute back in January. Bachelor party. I discovered Pai Gao Poker! \:\)

Thus the injuns and the coolies both got a piece of me. \:\)

How was Foxwoods? I've always wanted to try them and Mohegan Sun, but haven't talked to anyone about how the casinos are. I mostly play Blackjack or Stud.
