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!

 Telling myself what? That even happy people need to vent at times? I will :)


Quoting ms-superwoman:

Keep telling yourself that.

Quoting Anonymous:

 Yes I vented about a man who is disrespectful on a consistent basis.  That doesn't make me unhappy :)

Yup I stood up for myself in my home, that doesn't make me unhappy :)

You said "be happy w/you" I pointed out I already am happy w/who I am, bitchiness and all :)

FYI happy people need to vent at times too.

Thank you, your replies have made me chuckle.


Quoting ms-superwoman:

So, you are online bitching about a man you barely know because he's an ass and doesn't like you. Then getting defensive and being bitchy when I say just be happy. Uh huh, you sound really happy.

Quoting Anonymous:

 Um I think I pointed out rather clearly I am happy w/me, so you have no point.

As for not liking me, he barely knows me so whatever.


Quoting ms-superwoman:

Maybe he just doesn't like you? Maybe he's a total ass? Who cares... Just be happy with you.

Yup every now and then even happy people let a man who is consistently an asshole get under her skin:)

Love how on CM a vent means a person is miserable and unhappy. Some things never change:)

Everyone should be proud of who they are, because you can't change it!

How about instead of everyone waving their flags around and screaming how proud they are to be a certian race, why dont we be proud to part of the human race....race doesnt exist genetically. its just different shades ya'll, we all bleed red.

I don't see someone posting and venting about a racist dick as being the unhappy one. More like exasperated at such a dickhead and his comments.

Others idiocy can be quite annoying. Doesn't mean a chronic state of unhappiness.

It too a long time for me to embrace my pastyness. I am extremely pale with dark hair. I was called Casper a lot growing up and told I look like the undead. I was born on Friday the 13th too. The worst is when people would tell me I looked sick and unhealthy because I am so pale.

I have learned to embrace my coloring and to love being unique.

When the OP is saying she is proud to be white, she isn't really referring to a race but a personal trait. It ise similar to my DD saying she is proud to wear glassed when she has been made fun of.
