In My In Box

Proud to be white

Someone else besides me 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," "Honky," "Whitey," "Caveman" and that's OK.
But when I call you, Nigger, Towel-head, Sand-nigger, camel Jockey or
Beaner, 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 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?

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 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

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?
