Because Eric doesn't want to derail his own thread. Branched from this thread.
I can't. Because I am white, and one can not change their own ethnicity.
If it can not be changed, nor choose, for what purpose or reason does one have to feel a sense of Hubris?
Because it divides and separates us. It's basically "I'm glad I'm X ethnicity".. which is another way of saying "I'm glad I'm -not- anything but the ethnicity that I am"; which is a reflection on all other ethnicitys.As for gender, I can see how being "proud" is a bit odd, but I don't know. Cultural pride isn't necessarily a bad thing as long as it doesn't harm anyone else.
Persons should be neutral to what they are, otherwise, "pride" can easily become hate and prejudice, which it often does.
