"Nonsense. Our cultures are a product of us - of our blood and tribes !
Beyond that, much of this thread has devolved into the typical moaning and groaning about white supremacy and what not. ANUS is not a supremacist movement white or otherwise - it is an elitist movement though. And mushy ideas about equality and uber-egalitarianism don't wash with most of us - it is as simple as that. That some of us are racially aware, or proud of what our people have accomplished in many respects should be no indictment of anyone else's people, nor does it imply we fancy ourselves a perfect race, or incapable or grand acts of stupidity and folly - if that last part isn't clear to you by now, you aren't reading this site very closely."
First, whoever said that I was for equality and as you said "uber-egalitarianism"? Life OUGHT to be difficult to separate the weak and the chaff from the strong and the grain (or gold it that's what you like) but I do think that in a supposedly "free society" everyone is entitled to his opinion. Just as some white men is entitled to his beliefs of supremacy, every non-European worth his salt is entitled to his determination and perseverance to succeed in life. Just as you have the right to slander and mock institutions which give other people the right to chart their own destinies regardless of their filial or blood origins, the deserving non-European has every right to achieve his dreams, even if those dreams happen to be traditionally thought of to be as aspirations restricted only to the white man. Note that I've written "the deserving non-European" because that is where our philosophies differ where you envision a "racial nepotism" regardless of merit or achievements whatsoever, I assure this collectivist theory does not work. If it truly works, how come the agrarian collectives set up by Stalin ended up as virtual failures.

"CS Lewis wrote "we have created men without chests...we have castrated the foals and bid the geldings be fruitful". We strip away the very core of male pride: duty. Duty to their house, their bloodline, their people. Instead we say hey sure, be a mutt, it doesn't matter what you are but WHO you are inside. This is true, every man should be judged by his character, but shouldn't people be wary of what they don't know firsthand? I find identity in the history of my people, my family...and I don't plan to do otherwise."
First, man may have a duty to his family and his people but fundamentally, his duty should be to himself. Because if a man is a wastrel and has no responsibilty to himself, he could be a danger to his family and yeah, even to his people. Now what is this finding identity with the history of your people truly amount to? Does knowing that your ancestor was a rapist or a petty thief help you with your identity. It's typical isn't it, shove the negative traits of your ancestors under the rug while amplify that which is positive (even if the degree of blood relations is actually far, like saying Bill Clinton and Mother Theresa are actually related, huh).
