Another "double standard" countless whites whimper to is how it's regarded as acceptable for African Americans to show pride in their race while it's not for whites to show pride in theirs: not only is it unacceptable, but it's also pointless for whites to show pride in their race because the white race wasn't put down as racially inferior for eons in American society; on the other hand, African Americans were treated like dirt on basis of their race for 5 centuries up until 35 years ago. (Mind you, this was not only in the USA, but all across South, Central, and North America). In fact, whites spent the socially acceptable anti-black mistreatment era seriously questioning whether or not blacks were even human, doing experiments and tests on them; that's why they made up so many monkey stereotypes, slurs, and jokes about the black race -- In every aspect of life for 5 hellacious centuries, blacks were spit upon as the most inferior race. The darker a black person was, the worse they were tormented -- While this all went on, whites also showed the most snotty white pride through racial arrogance and white supremacy: commonly heard remarks were "white is right", "white power", "whites only", "only serve whites here", etc.; there were many white-only hate groups that terrorized other races; in the English language and American culture in general, "black" came to connote evil. Most English words with the term "black" in it have a negative connotation (black magic, blackmail, black heart, etc.). That's not just a funny coincidence and it's also no coincidence that the term "white" came to be associated with all things good, holy, godly, etc.
Most whites act as if all the above has no bearing on today's American society, ignorantly under the impression that it all took place hundreds of years ago. News flash: much of today's African American population over the age of forty experienced being racially mistreated by whites. Much of today's younger black generation has to deal with poverty as a result. As for the blacks who have scratched and clawed their ways out of the poverty-stricken result of legalized racial discrimination, there are still plenty of black disadvantages they must put up with in our society: higher likelihood of being the odd men out appearance-wise if they are to lead middle-class lives; being held to a higher standard in terms of behavior because of countless black stereotypes; higher likelihood of having ghetto/impoverished family members; strong likelihood of having to date interracially because so many in the African American community struggle in poverty and are behind bars in many cases, unjustifiably so; countless whites infesting the Internet with anti-black material and not just any anti-black material but stereotypes and slurs that were developed during the socially acceptable anti-black mistreatment era and used towards their grandparents (age-old monkey slurs are often tossed around on Websites, simply as a result of a black person becoming the focus); etc. It's also important to note that blacks have far and away the most racial slurs and stereotypes; most of which were made up by white Americans (as shown here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ethnic_slurs ). Being 35 years removed from the socially acceptable anti-black mistreatment era hasn't changed these realities. 35 years later as far as the English language goes, the term "black" is still associated with evil, while the term "white" is associated with all things good; 35 years later, the white run media promotes white women as the ideal women while putting down black women as the most unattractive, loud, and obnoxious; 35 years later, the effects of legalized racial discrimination still lingers heavily on much of the black community as a whopping 24.7% is impoverished, while the majority of blacks are merely working class; meanwhile, only 8.6% of the white race is impoverished, while the majority are middle-class, living in suburbs (as is stated here http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:sEnJtgO7GDQJ:www.npc.umich.edu/poverty/+24.7+percent+of+blacks+compared+to+8.6+percent+of+whites&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us ).
Even today, countless whites are still proving that they can't show white pride without putting other races down. Just visit any website that has to do with white pride, like the most visited one: Stormfront. They combine white pride with with racial bigotry and degradation of everyone who isn't white, mainly blacks. Notice how when blacks show racial pride, they generally go about it without putting down other racial groups: comments like "we are strong black women" are not usually in combination with "not weak, fugly white women."
