FIRST: Go read the disclaimer at the head of this blog. You know, the one nobody ever reads. The one that contains "I do not advocate or condone violence except for lawful protection of life, liberty and, in very limited cases, property."

SECOND: Reader comments are not allowed on this post. Email me and if your comments are sufficiently polite, I will consider posting it as an update.

THIRD: I do not consider myself a racist. I do not condone the use of some of the words found below. Let's enjoy a discussion of the issues, not an argument.

FOURTH: The word "You" does not refer to any specific race, creed or anything else. It is used to refer to some one other than me. It may not fit YOU.

FIFTH: Yes, I am a member of the Caucasion race (AKA: "white"), of Anglo-Saxon ethnicity, a Protestant and Southern, both by the Grace of God! :>) If that makes me a "WASP," so be it. I'm still not a racist!

Various ancestors of mine fought in the 1776 War of Rebellion (against Great Britain - which they won) and the War of Northern Aggression (guess which side my ancestores were on! :>) ) and the 1836 War of Rebellion (Texas against Mexico). So, YES, I am proud of my heritage (most of it, anyway). By God's Grace I have warriors in my blood. Our last military ancestor mustered out in 1865. Why we don't have any since then various from ancestor to ancestor. It gets kinda boring - but none of them escaped to Canada or anywhere else!

SIXTH: I could have sent this out to my email list, all two of them. It wouldn't get the publicity I think it deserves. I'd rather share it with you.

SEVENTH: H/T to BL who forwarded this to me. He's a good friend and mentor.

(I'll bet this doesn't go very far on the email circuit)
Unfortunately, it is so very true.........
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
-
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 NegroCollege 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' 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-only Colleges in the US ,
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
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...

Have I stirred you up? I hope so. Now, re-evaluate your attitudes, just as I was forced to re-evaluate mine by this li'l message. Let's acknowledge that both sides of the issue have things we need to change. Now let's get to changing ourselves. We're the only ones who can change. I can't make you change. You can't make me change.

God Bless Ya'll !
