Pride: a sense of one’s worth. To me, it’s pointless to be proud of being part of an ethnic group. Being proud of something should be reserved for an important or difficult act in which you, yourself have accomplished. Pride is often used as an unfounded term many people give to themselves to achieve a false sense of superiority, dignity, or importance. Racial pride actually aids racism. It’s one thing to be proud of individuals for what they have accomplished, but being proud of an entire ethnic group based on the acts of a set of individuals from that ethnic group is akin to stereotyping.
That’s my thought for today.
