no one is saying you shouldn't be proud of being white, just use the right terms and there shouldn't be an issue
You said context is the key. Context is a conditional term. It has everything to do with perception and biases corrupt those perceptions. White Pride is a racial epitaph for some people but not for all. We don't all use the term in the same context, so for someone like Dana (the ultimate hypocrite) to play moral authority here is assanine at best.
I should have NateR change my name to White Pride just to piss you off RNC
