Being proud of your race is lame because you had no choice of which race you are.

People should be proud of their individual accomplishments instead of whatever they got at birth. My first assumption when someone is proud of their race is that they haven’t done anything with their life so they have to latch onto the success of other people who look like them.

Edit: A couple of comments have suggested that this means you also shouldn’t be proud of your family. That doesn’t apply because you had a direct impact on your family as they did with you. This extends to your community. What I am speaking of is hundreds of generations before you.

Another point I’d like to make is if you agree that people shouldn’t be ashamed of what their ancestors did then by symmetry they shouldn’t be proud either. Current Mongols don’t need to feel ashamed of Ghengis Khan. I don’t think modern Germans should be held responsible for Hitler. That also means they shouldn’t get credit for the great things their ancestors have done either.

Edit2: Because there is some confusion, I’m not white. I actually made this post with white nationalism and Stefan Molyneux in mind. This logic should still apply to any race, gene, or whatever pre birth lottery you won/lost
