Proud To Be White

Michael Richards better known as Kramer from TV’s Seinfeld.

This was his defence speech in court after making racial comments in his comedy act. He makes some very interesting points.

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, 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 A l-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?

A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but any color can be in the Miss America pageant.

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?

 

Bravo Kramer!!!!!

  1. A caste system has been prevalent in India for several hundred years that determined, or limited, the choices available to people born in certain castes considered as ‘low’. Over time, differences in haves and have nots became wider. At the time of independence from the British, the new Constitution provided for a generation, about 30 years, of benefits to people from these castes to enable them to overcome deprivation of centuries. It was expected that these benefits will enable them to catch-up. 72 years after independence, these benefits have continued to grow, not reduce. Opponents of the system argue that benefits should be based only on economic situation, and not accident of birth any longer. I suppose these are complex questions. In my personal opinion, nobody should need to justify or be apologetic about being who they happen to be.

    • How right you are. I never realized that the caste system was so formalized pigeon holing different groups into a limited life. Thanks for this important piece of history. Like in America, it will take many generations under new rules to purge the stigma of the system.
