FW: Proud To Be White

So I stewed on posting this for a while. This was sent in by a fellow right-wing email victim, it is heavy on the racial slurs to make a point about white "inequality," a mainstay theme to the right-wing forward canon of "what's wrong with this world" emails. Which cuts to the purpose of this blog.
The goal of MRWD is to shine daylight on such forwards, allowing viewers a chance to examine the forwarded email community; promoting awareness and giving readers free expression to comment on the forwards, calling attention to the accuracy, motivation or other point worth mentioning to each forward entry. MRWD is not, by any means, promoting the sentiments expressed in these forwards, but aims to allow readers (many of whom are fellow victims of right-wing forwards) to connect and lambaste the unchecked right-wing forwards in the spirit of open expression in the name of our hard fought freedom of critical speech.

That said, here it is, yet another quiet, right-wing forward brought into the public eye:

-------------- begin forward --------------
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 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?
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 e-mail.
Let's see which of you are proud enough to send it on.

My god. Thats like 1 degree less than the rhetoric at a Klan meeting. It's more than a little uncomfortable.

Yes, because if there is one thing whites lack, it's sufficient representation for their interests in government and leading non-government organizations. Just like we need a whole white tv network to address the shameful shortage of whites in highly visible television roles, and whites-only colleges to address the fact that white students were historically shut out of the educational process.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but at the time the historically black colleges were created, all the other universities were white-guy-only colleges. That's why the historically black colleges were created in the first place.

Shorter: "It's hard to be a white man these days, because I say and do racist things, and the minorities oppress me by responding to it."

If a "friend" or family member sent this to me, I don't even know how I'd react. It's sickening.

P.S. I am glad you decided to post it here, though. These things don't go away by ignoring them.

And I agree, I don't think this is ANY degrees removed from a Klan rally. I'm particularly disturbed by the "you carjack us..." finale, in which the author bemoans that cops can't use excessive force on black men without repercussions.

You Have Yom Hashoah
Tell you what, email author/forwarder: If you have a Holocaust any time soon, you can have your very own Holocaust Remembrance Day. I'm sure it's fun times and totally exists to make you feel jealous.

It really is sickening because pretty much every point made is true.
Being white is the worst thing you can be now days in this US "melting pot".

Anonymous: You are a victim. A victim of bad information. Also, the corporate power structure has so rigged "the game" that anyone, of any race or color, who can't figure out how to use the "free market" to scam their way to economic refuge can be buried by the "system."

WOW. this is just....I'm speechless...if anyone sent me this I'd block them from sending me any more emails...

I wouldn't be surprised if this was taken from a KKK web site, or speech...
