The typical case of 'black pride' or 'brown pride' implies a sense of uniqueness as well as self-empowerment in the face of hardship and prejudicial societal norms.

This reality of perception might be unfair to the handful of people trying to celebrate their heritage by wearing kilts and viking helmets, but for the staggering mass percentage of cases you see, anyone 'proud to be white' falls into the former category listed at the beginning of my post. It's a common sense thing, and something we see white people tactfully do to circumvent this reality of perception is to embrace their specific cultural heritage with Irish Pride or Scottish Pride or whatever rather than the 'white pride' that has been done to death for decades by redneck white supremacists.
well society need to work on erasing that perception, because that some high level racist shit in there.

every race did terrible thing in the past, its not an excuse to bring some race down because on what they did in the past

White dudes from the US are the demographic most likely to dislike his statement, imo.

I've personally got no problem with an immigrant's son showing love to the old country. Of course, his tattoo shows pride to his race rather than to a country, and racial pride gets ugly fast.

Actually, I find Bas a little annoying. He seems cool but isn't nearly as funny as people seem to think he is.
