PROUD TO BE WHITE, by Michael Richards...a.k.a. "Kramer"

Admittedly, this may be considered to be a bit "crude" to some, but it also makes a very good point.

(I did not write this, in case anybody was wondering...Kramer did!)

I have been wondering about why Whites are racists, and no other race is.

Michael Richards makes his point...

PROUD TO BE WHITE

Michael Richards better known as Kramer from TVs Seinfeld does make a good point. This was his defense speech in court after making racial comments in his comedy act. He makes some very interesting points...

Someone finally said it... How many are actually paying attention
to this?


There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab 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 Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day. You have Black History Month. You have Cesar Chavez Day. You have Yom Hashoah. 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??


A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but a woman of any color can be in the Miss America pageant.

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 racists!

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?

There is nothing improper about this.
Let's see which of you are proud enough to agree to this.
I sadly don't think many will. That's why we have lost most of OUR
RIGHTS!

In this country. We won't stand up for ourselves!
BE PROUD TO BE WHITE !
It's not a crime yet, but getting real close!
You!

    I can't believe people actually raved this.

    Minorities that have been degraded declare "Gay pride" and "Black pride" and whatnot because they're trying to reclaim their self-esteem in their identity.

    Last I looked, white people haven't lost any dignity or self-esteem on the basis of being white.

    So it is any wonder that when someone screams "White pride" it comes off as superior?

    Black pride is about feeling good about being black and appreciating your heritage, and not feeling like you're someone less because your skin is dark. About reclaiming your feelings about what's good about being yourself.

    White pride is about superiority. It has nothing to do with reclaiming anything.

    Gay pride is about refusing to be pushed back in the closet, refusing to be tabooed, refusing to be lied and degraded and demonized any longer, and about reclaiming self-esteem and pride in who you are. It's about accepting yourself for who you are, because there are a lot of people who refuse to do that.

    Straight pride is about declaring yourself the best, and the only "right" orientation to be. There's nothing to reclaim about being straight: you're the norm, you're accepted, even encouraged, you're everywhere, and life is good if you're straight because you don't have to worry about being ...

    If white people and straight people were suddenly victimized on a large scale for those labels, then sure, they would have something to reclaim, and white pride and straight pride would be understandable, even encouraged. But there's the rub-- if you've got nothing to reclaim, if you're not just trying to put yourself on equal ground, you're trying to get something more.

    We call that "superiority".

    It doesn't matter who wrote it. I agree with it. I've said some of these very things.
    Racism would be almost obsolete if not for the TV & other media constantly promoting it.

    When are you right wing stooges going to stop posting hoaxes as fact. This was debunked by Snopes, and by Truth or Fiction here:

    Summary of the eRumor:
    This is supposedly a racist presentation that actor Michael Richards made while in court defending himself for the racial statements that he made during a comedy routine in California.

    The Truth:
    This eRumor is a hoax.
    Michael Richards is an Emmy award winning comedian and actor who is best known for his popular role as Cosmo Kramer in the Seinfeld TV series.

    In November of 2006 he made headlines because of racial epithets he made during a comedy appearance at the Laugh Factory, a club in West Hollywood, California. He reacted to an African-American heckler in the audience with an outburst of targeted racial comments that were recorded by someone who caught the episode on a cell-phone video recording.

    Richards made a follow-up appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman in which he made a public apology and said that he went into a rage in response to the heckling and his attempt to be outrageous backfired.

    He NEVER had to go to court over the incident and NEVER made the statements that are attributed to him in the eRumor.

    The text of this eRumor has been circulating on the Internet for quite a while. We ...

    NO DOUBT A WHINING RACIST.

    I don't get this color pride thing either. As an American mutt (too many differing nationalities to claim just one), I find that the only things I can be proud of are my own accomplishments, my choices and my actions.
    So sorry I can't attribute any of this to the many hyphenated American divisionists, who are showing pride over something that beyond their control.
    If I could choose, I'd be a short brunette of italian heritage like those I grew up with because I stood out like a sore thumb/

    How is it crude? The hypocrisy of some people amazes me. I am proud to be white. That doesn't mean I hate Asians, blacks, or Indians. Do proud women automatically hate men?

    People who hate whites live in and benefit from the country that white people built up into prosperity.

    My grandson is half Polish with some German and American Indian blood, and has the darker complexion and a German last name. Can't get much more American than that and I love him, not just the Polish half. I am proud of him. He is five years old but talks like he was at least eight or nine.

    I totally agree with this post. Kramer is right.
    It is time for white people to reassert themselves. Let us have exclusively white colleges, white history month, white congressional caucus and white all the institutions the other hyphenated racist groups have. We are going to be called racist no matter what so why not at least give them as much reason to call us that as they gave us to call them racist. White people should realize that all these groups out there exist solely to support their race only, like La Raza and they are being open about it. Then comes the Nation of Islam with its own government. The name itself is treasonous and it declares its sovereignty above the rest of Americans.

    His assessment is correct, but so what. We are all aware of the double standards. Again so what. As far as I am concerned a crime is a crime and it should not have an association with a group. If you take someone and drag them with your truck to me it is a hate crime and does not make a difference in who you are dragging. I hate labels like this.
