People who hate me because I am white, I in turn do not like. Race isn't about biology, it's about social grouping. Hell, he makes a good point in his defense of himself. But when I call you, Nigger, Kike, Towel head, Sand-nigger, Camel Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink. What is it going to take to make black people forgive white peoples ancestors for making their ancestors slaves. It drives me mad when the word is misused so freely.
Well, to a degree I learnt to be proud of my skin colour. If you are part of the social group that already has power, then this type of personal affirmation is redundant, and only serves to broaden the gap in the perceived worth of your group and the group with lower social status. We don't need a White History month, as we have history which is effectively white history as it's massively Eurocentric. Watch an act by Dave Chapell or Carlos Mencia. Everything he has done since then has been a sad attempt to reclaim some thin shred of his thoroughly tanked post-Seinfeld career.
I would argue that the occasional racist slur muttered under the breath is considered to be racist behaviour from the point of view of the person who is being muttered at. I'm not anti Christian, just historically accurate. Besides, Europeans had dark skin until about 6,000 years ago, if I remember correctly. Aryan Fest 1989 was fast approaching and would be one of the great U. Two months later, that benchmark was officially passed. The Hammerskin brotherhood is way of achieving goals which we have all set for ourselves. And need I remind you that the Irish had it nearly as bad when they were imported over.
I am absolutely furious how so many people just think that freedom is finite and that there is only so much to go around, and for others to get more, they need to take it from those who had it. From what I gather, Richards wasn't trying to make a point, clever, relevant or otherwise; he was trying to insult two members of his audience based entirely on the colour of their skin. I remember once finding some kind of collective curse upon so-called white pride or, to call it more accurately, white supremacy , and I've always wanted to find it again just to link it to whoever tries spouting that venom to me. As an example, usually I see this stuff when it's shared on Facebook. Most I've met distinguish themselves by nationality - Colombians are not Mexican, Cubanos are not Puerto Ricans just like white people - a Dane is not a Slav and a German is not a Greek. Because the oppression of others in our history, we still have more and better opportunities in education, employment, status, wealth, etc.
About 45 miles from my hometown, there is a small town called Tellico. Personally, I mostly agree with it. The very fact that he immediately tried to justify what he'd said is a pretty fair sign that he was being deliberately racist and knew it wouldn't go down well; somewhat along the lines of a person who starts a conversation with the words I'm not a racist but. Concerning growth at the time it was thanks to strong leadership of a few individuals that momentum in the south had picked up and skinheads from all over Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia were coming into the brotherhood. When I was a child, and still actually, people called me names and laughed at me because of my skin colour and that made me feel ashamed of how I looked.
As for race not being real, try telling that to a black kid growing up in an inner city. Created by former Alabama Klan boss and long-time white supremacist Don Black in 1995, Stormfront was the first major hate site on the Internet.

You are the beneficiary of hundreds of years of your ancestors' voyaging around the world to where the brown people live and taking their stuff and, in the case of Africa, spending four centuries shipping tens of millions of them half way round the world for the express purpose of working them and their children to death what about those of us that never did that? Because again, how can to be ashamed of something you have no control over? Jon Stewart is white in many people's opinion. As 1987 drew to a close a few skinheads got together and decided to try to make the dream a reality, they had the group but needed a name.
