White America

I am proud to be a white American, because I  cannot be a racist.  It is always justified by the actions of the few while I ignore my own “race’s” crimes against me.

I am proud to be a white American, because it is never my fault.  It is not because I did not work to educate myself, it is because an illegal immigrant took my job.

I am proud to be a white American, because my bravery tells me I need a wall to protect my family, not the courage to make friends with my neighbors.

I am proud to be a white American, because this is the home of the free, unless your sexual preference, religion, or thoughts are different than mine.  Then you are blinded by your “rose colored glasses”.

I am proud to be a white American, because my hands are free of the blood I point out is in your history.  My people never forced others into slavery, committed genocide, hung up children because of the color of their skin, or perpetrated hate crimes.
What I really am, is proud to be a citizen of the planet Earth, because I will stand against those who would commit those crimes, no matter what color their skin is; and our time to stand up may be coming soon if those in power continue to refuse to have the courage to listen.
