White Pride Is Inherently Racist

Causes of Modern-Day Racism in America

White pride is not genuine because whiteness is not a cultural identity. It simply does not make sense to be proud of the lightness of one’s skin. However, it is honourable to be proud of one’s heritage: Irish, Slavic, Hispanic, Chinese etc because these are cultural identities.

The obvious exception, of course, is black pride. Black people suffered segregation as a direct result of their skin colour and thus developed a shared identity of blackness. What’s more, many black Americans lack cultural identities as many were lost as a result of the slave trade.
