I don’t need to feel proud

White Dude,
White Area, USA.

Well, to be honest, I’m not “proud” of being white. I’m not ashamed, I’m not proud. I don’t hang my head or puff out my chest. It’s not a huge part of me, to be honest. It doesn’t make me. So, I understand when people are proud of their race or heritage. But my family immigrated so long ago to America that by now I’m mostly just an American white straight male with nothing to be proud of other than my humor and my knowledge.
