@Playboyize
No really, let's try and analyze this without trying to justify our own biased ideological position.

Is not pride, ultimately, a sense of satisfaction with some aspect? This aspect is always external, for pride requires an identity, a self to experience this pride. A personal sense of pride is usually the result of some successful work, achieved by the person. So pride requires an invested interest in the thing which produces the emotion. Think of a father being proud of his son. The son is the object, and the father is the subject, thus the subjects interest being manifested in the object, creates pride in the subject. This is then *vicarious experience*. Now, let us take this to another level of abstraction: A football fan has an invested emotional interest in his team winning. The emotional satisfaction is key to understanding pride. Now, which aspect of the football team's acts create pride in the fan? Is it not success? Why is the fan even funneling his interest into the success of this team? This is very much simple, but it is emotional satisfaction, i.e. pride. But if his team is to lose, does he stop being a fan? Usually no. What happens is that he attempts to justify the failure of the team, as to maintain the sense of pride; through the exposure of injustice. ''The ref was unfair'', and so on. It can not be the members of the team which cause this sense of pride, for they are replaced, or switch to another team. What does occur is that the fan may have a personal favorite player, this is hero worship. But, fundamentally, his sense of pride (satisfaction) is derived from the 'ethos' of the team. So, in actuality, what occurs here is a process of identification. But when one identifies with something, he must be ready to defend it, to take up responsibility for it, for it is him, binding his ego to the ethos. In this way, pride (derived from externals) can be detrimental to the individual.

to fuel your own status
And how is this done? Furthermore, why? What does this actually even accomplish? If you are interested in your 'own status', then you'd be wise to work to your own success. How do the accomplishments of members of your ethnicity/race/group 'fuel', your own status? If a bum is proud of the accomplishment of some notable historical figure of his own ethnicity, what good does that do him? What will increase his status is his own work. Now I agree in this, that the aesthetic fantasy, produced by his pride in his group, may boost his moral or give him a sense of purpose. But it is quite arbitrary .He could join some religion or political movement and attempt to get the same 'fuel' from that. But does he fuel himself or does he become fuel for whatever group he holds pride in? Take some prideful soldier in WW1 for that example.

Basically white people look better and have more status in this world.

If you're tall white and handsome you are pretty much unmoggable and the world is your oyster. This is due to history. People are drawn to strength and pride and what better than an unremorseful love of ones own people and wanting to forcefully segregate and hate the lesser inferior races that could impurify your beloved race

Psychologically people also get off on being seen as superior to the next person, for example in a room or party full of short or ugly people, a tall and handsome person will stand out as the genetically superior and this will affect his mindset and ego

The same applies to race either consciously or subconsciously for every person.

Sure there are outliers and preferences to some extent but people in general agree that white people are the overall more attractive and high status race out of them all. This fact is based on history and arguably objective beauty standards.

hence any white person can use this to their egos and psychological advantage

Going by what you described, (which I do agree with empirically) not *any* white person could do this. What if he is ugly & short, or whatever. What good will taking pride in the fact that people of his race are more attractive on average and taller on average? It will simply make him look even more pathetic. If we are to take your logic to its apex, it would simple be a matter of might makes right, in the sense of aesthetics as well as capacity i.e. power. So why is the pride in ones own people even necessary at that point? Consider the American blacks with their ''we wuz kangz'' type of rhetoric. It is the same thing, the same ego boosting apparatus which you describe. Though it may be based on fiction, it *still* has the same effects on their psyche, (25th dynasty were blacks though). Why go through all this when you can truly make yourself the center of it all? Are *you* not the source of these value assertions in the first place, and how they reflect back on you? Again, by your own logic, it is no longer a dichotomy of race, but of Beauty-ugliness, power-weakness... etc.

Flameblow
Flameblow

This is a linguistic trick that hides what really happens when someone takes pride in other people. Taking pride in being related to people is a form of honoring them and for the great figures (Caesar, Napoleon, etc) is one of the reasons they probably did it (for the glory that outlasts their own person).

If I say I'm proud of my grandfather for having suffered greatly and made a success out of himself, I'm saying that I'm honored to be related to him and I appreciate him.

If I say I'm proud to be English, I'm saying I'm honored to be a part the nation that produced such great people and such a great culture, etc.

Taking pride is heaping praise and appreciation onto others, not taking credit for it.

So yes, if someone says they're proud to be White, that's a show of appreciation, not a claim of accomplishment and never was a claim of accomplishment.

@whereismyname
A high status race is just one more quality that will get you ahead in today's cut throat society.

For example an ugly and short white man can still be physically strong, can still be unmoggable in terms of race, a very handy quality. They could even get plastic surgery. Their opportunities, social circle, dating options and the way society perceives them is still to their advantage based on their high status race.

The way the world works and sees lower status races is incomparable to a white person. Racist words such as honkey or cracker do not offend the white man, for there is no weight behind them. However a race that is by definition ugly, will have great qualms with being pointed out as generically inferior.

That's not to say if you're not born white you can't be far more successful than 99% of white people. It's just that you will have to work much harder for that success, and still have society taking away from it purely based on your race

Well, this all is really relative to your location in the world. I mean, I do agree with you about the actuality of these things. But again, I don't see a point in deriving pride from this. It seems like a crutch, more than fuel. And the only people that *really* focus on it end up deluded or are themselves meek and ugly and seek to bind their ego to this ideal. As I mentioned before, they think they are bettering themselves, but they end up being an apparatus of the thing itself, i.e. a slave.

This actually helps me illustrate my point. Pride is not even necessary here. It will always be your own aesthetic preference and interest which causes you to feel pride in whatever. The people that end up doing these things, or any thing that is to their detriment, usually think that their interest is right or just, or whatever, but as you can see, it is not even their own, they think it is, but they have been fooled.

The point is that 'you' are no more responsible for your own actions as you are for your favourite football team winning or your country's achievements. So being proud of yourself is as silly as being proud of anything that is not yourself since both are equally in your control, which is to say, not at all. This is relevant because it revokes the artificial divide between 'that bird responded to stimuli' and 'my toe responded to stimuli'.

You are not explaining WHY it is good. You are simply stating that it is. Now, I can guess that you will say shit like ''social order, a healthy society...'' and so on. But then I ask you, what ideas, what culture, and what identity? You could be a Muslim and have all of these, that you perceive as benefits. Then you might say that their religion is false, and that they are savage sand-niggers or whatever, but I ask you, do they not have ''a shared sense of culture, identity and ideas''? I could use any other binding ideology or culture as an example. Your *choice* here, is quite arbitrary, and usually retaliated to whatever you are, what you think is true. Saying:
because community is a good thing and building a community with a shared sense of culture, identity and ideas is a good thing.

I fully agree with this mindset. People today shouldn't take pride nor take the blame for the actions of their ancestors. Being proud or ashamed of your nationality/ethnicity/race/skin colour is stupid because it's something you did not earn or achieve. Napoleon Bonaparte isn't highly regarded for being French, but for being a brilliant tactician and managing to defeat large powers. Similarly, Hitler is not hated for being Austrian, but because he committed the worst atrocities of the 20th century. In the end, it's the individual that matters.

This is self deceptive, and a delusional aesthetic crutch, with an tendency for cherry picking from history. Sure you can base all of your work on it, as to 'justify your legacy'. This is how ''We wuz...'' people operate. I wont even say that it is bad, but it seems pointless to justify your own work with this, and use your own work to justify it in return, it becomes a phantastical prison. At least be honest about the actual reasons you hold pride, or *want* to hold pride in your ancestors.

Also of course it has something to do with you, you weren't born as some mythical island cut off from the past: man is a social creature who can easily go mad alone and isn't as a framed being, ever going to be a process that can be isolated and atomized so easily. Your achievements and choices will help your children just as the previous generations did for you, and are due in part to those around and before you: by being an active participant in the development of history, in whatever way you are, you're not just building something alone, you're doing it with others. You can take pride in what you've contributed, and can feel pride for the success of others just as you can feel happiness for a fellow whose live has altered for the better, no doubt. If you ask "why feel happiness for him, I didn't do anything for it" at least you're view is consistent.

Why do people grow neckbeards? No one can seriously think that they actually look good, right?

@BlogWobbles
Is any of this a necessity to live a good life? Evidently, no. And of course, you have left out the filthy complexities of life and the struggle that comes with them. As if you are selling a religion on someones doorstep. But you say ''What's wrong with that?'', and ''man is a social creature who can easily go mad alone''.... Are you trying to convince that user, or yourself?

my neck beard looks good, it is curly and thick and it makes me look like i have a gigantic jaw and big old chin like jay leno. it depends on the neck beard. that guy in OPs pic looks like an abominable snowman or something. it works for him i guess. he probably gets the ladies around Christmas.

Most of the ancestors people worship doesn't share values and institutions, sure i can look up to my grandfather as a hard working learned man but that doesn't make me think:
We wuz vikings
My ancestors were roman centurions!
Fredrick the great won a battle? That make ME a great warrior!
I'm literally Shaka Zulu
Rembrandt runs in my veins
I have the spirit of the samurai
I can find social interactions with my family, Friends and coworkers, not long dead people. You're just making excuses because you think like a brainlet.

I don't know who all of those 'Anglos' are, but of the ones I recognise I count a Jew, two Irishmen, a guy who's 1/4 Portuguese and another who's 1/2 Italian
I also recognise another who's so irrelevant (posted only because his image has probably appeared on here before) that his ancestry is impossible to find - but I doubt it's entirely English

Pride is useful for maintaining collective unity and morale. I.e. the football team example that another user mentioned, or a nation when at war with another nation. Also, nothing "wrong" with inheriting the hard work of your parents/ancesters and improving upon it.

Basing your own value on the successes and achievements of your ancestors is a reasonable way to understand the limits of your own potential, and to gauge what is the least that you can do. To deny that you are even in the slightest, the creation of your mom and dad combined, and their parents, and their's, etc. Is really an idiotic conclusion to come to regarding the values associated with heredity.

What a pathetic strawman. People can be influenced by others who are foreign to them and speak a different language. Why do you think the greeks are regarded as the founders of western civilization if not because many different other people's were influenced by ideas and accomplishments? If comparing yourself favourably to ancestors was the ONLY motivation for why people did great thongs, then humanity would have NEVER accomplished great things.

@Lord_Tryzalot
See above. You're a dillentante and a pseud at EVERYTHING you will try to do if you ONLY do it because of your biologocial ancestors, and not because also you regard the things as worth doing in themselves, among other non-race based motivations.
