I'm Proud to be White!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Ok so there was a bday party at my house yesterday for me & a friend.

Well her husband who is bit of an ass (yes she knows this & they've separated twice) was there & he isn't from the states & has dark olive skin.

Anyway, I'm rather white & got sunburn over the week & my arms are peeling. I HATE it & if it wasn't so warm I'd wear long sleeves. I feel like a snake shedding skin, lol.

Well he came over & says "I see your white is coming out" and poked at my skin. I just said "yup tends to happen when you get sunburn."  To which he said "so glad I'm not white & have ugly sensitive skin like that." (mind you his wife is whiter than I am) I just looked at him & said "I'm proud of being white, my skin color is a part of me & I embrace it flakiness & all."  He asked "do you have a flag saying that too?"  I told him "yup it is called my Polish flag." He said "same thing" and walked off.

WTH, be pissy but if your proud of your dark olive skin I'm going to be proud of my white freckled sunburned skin as well!

My dd is very fair skin like I am. But my son will tan like so easy like his bio father. He doesn't even need sunblock cause he will still tan. My dd I have to reply over and over sunblock so she doesn't burn

 This man is ALWAYS talking about how beutiful his DD's skin is compared to my DD's & how beautiful olive skin is & says he wishes his wife had that skin (well then you should've married someone w/olive skin bc we can't change it).


I don't let my DD go over there anymore bc he's made comments about her skin being ugly & she has come home crying.


If I'm racist for what I said or for standing up for my DD before so be it, but what does that make him?  I wish she would just finally leave him, he's already cheated on her twice that she knows of.

I don't understand "pride" in skin color.

You didn't do anything to receive the color of your skin. What's there to be proud of?

He sounds like a real idiot. I wouldn't let my kids go back over either.

 Well my skin color is a part of who I am & embrace everything about me & I am proud of who I am. That would include my skin color.

I didn't do anything to get my dark brown eyes either, but I love my eyes :)

You can love/like it, sure. But "pride" is akin to a feeling of accomplishment.

I am Hispanic and list Caucasian as my race. I burn and flake before I get a nice tan. My dad was Puerto Rican with light brown/dark blonde hair and blue eyes and he would turn redder than a tomato before peeling and tanning.

 I have found that sunscreens that are all natural work better for me, the ones w/the chemicals don't help me & completely dry my skin. 

However, walgreens has been out so I didn't have any to apply.  I used a friends sunscreen & now my skin is dry & burned :(
