Word For It. . .

‘White Pride’ Denied

Posted by wordforit on March 19, 2008

Elizabeth Wright – 8/11/2007

Did you know that the terms “Black Power,” “Black Supremacy,” and “La Raza” (The Race) are all trademarks that have long been approved by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office? Even the Black Panther Party’s slogan “Burn, Baby, Burn” (which still evokes the threat of rioting and mayhem), had no problem winning official trademark recognition. And then there’s “African Pride,” “Black Pride,” “Chippewa Pride,” “Cuban Pride,” “Indian Pride,” “Jewish Pride,” “Red Pride,” and lots more — all aimed at acknowledging a race or ethnicity. And all terms approved by the U.S. government.

As Reported by American Renaissance and Free Republic, when Justin Moritz, a former law enforcement officer, applied to trademark the phrase “White Pride Country Wide,” he was rejected in no uncertain terms. Registration of the words was not only denied, but the phrase was ruled “offensive” and “immoral.” More succinctly, the trademark office claimed, “… the proposed mark consists of or comprises immoral or scandalous matter.”

Incredulous, Moritz’s next step was to appeal the decision and give trademark officials a chance to reconsider his request. He first did some homework and accumulated a list of all the trademarks given to terms that acknowledge pride of race or national origin. He came up with over three dozen relevant terms or slogans, many referencing people of color, which objectively could be deemed close relatives to “White Pride Country Wide.” All to no avail. Rejection of his registration was upheld, and to add to his vexation, his $1,300 trademark application fee was deemed non-refundable.

Moritz next turned to the ACLU, which, unsurprisingly, refused to petition the trademark office in his behalf. He then contacted the Center for Individual Rights, a public interest law firm. CIR did not take the case, but did place it on the website of the Federalist Society, where lawyers sometimes choose cases to handle pro bono. As of August, Moritz had not been contacted by a willing attorney.

Let’s face it, it would be surprising if Moritz found support, especially among whites. After decades of inundation about the evils of “white racism” coming from all directions, and most especially from the media and education establishments, the average white is programmed to avoid anything that smacks of conscious endorsement of his own race. In the current social climate, to display favorable regard towards that which is white, not only is forbidden, but is viewed as an automatic disparagement of non-whites.

A “White Pride” T-shirt is deemed a threatening symbol, whereas a “Black Supremacy” slogan on a button or garment is viewed as an understandable, albeit angry response to undeserved past abuses. Any public effort to promote a white theme is doomed to failure, even if the proper bows to racial diversity are adhered to. Whites learn early to censor themselves, in order to comply with the rules of the race game.

The white who does not learn how to keep his head beneath the radar could wind up smeared with the “racist” label — a potentially ruinous accusation. He who slips and fails to follow the politically correct race protocol could find himself in a turbulent situation. Given the existence of “hate crime” laws — ambiguous statutes conceived primarily to entrap whites — it is best to keep any socially unorthodox thoughts to oneself. As several cases demonstrate, punishment for Thought Crime has arrived in America.

Knowing that whites are on the defensive in this peculiar, one-sided shadow play, self-appointed “watchdog” groups, i.e., the professional “anti-racists,” are quick to target a slogan like “White Pride Country Wide” as an arrogant manifestation of white supremacy. Honest intentions do not matter, since this is a “Gotcha!” game. Once the taboo “supremacist” has been applied, other whites will run for cover, eager to dissociate themselves from anyone who might bring on “race” troubles.

In a society now immersed in identity politics, where the education system and a reinforcing media work overtime in pummeling young minds with racially correct propaganda, there is little prospect that fairness will prevail in the near future.

Justin Moritz:

“I found that that the following “pride” terms have all been registered as trademarks by the U.S Government:

“African Pride,” “African Man Pride,” “Asian Pride,” “Bahama Pride,” “Black Pride,” “Brazilian Pride,” “China-Pride,” “Chippewa Pride,” “Choctaw Pride,” “Colombian Pride,” “Cuban Pride,” “Dakota Pride,” “Dominican Pride,” “El Salvador Pride,” “Ecuador Pride,” “Gay Pride Apparel,” “Guyanese Pride,” “Havana Pride,” “Honduran Pride,” “Indian Pride,” “Jamaica’s Pride,” “Jewish Pride,” “Kwanzaa Pride,” “Long Beach Lesbian and Gay Pride,” “Mayan Pride,” “Mexican Pride,” “Native Pride!,” “Nicaraguan Pride,” “Orgullo Hispano” (Hispanic Pride), “Orgoglio” (Hispanic-‘Great Pride’ (supremacy?)), “Qisqueya Pride” (Dominican Republic Pride), “Rainbow Pride Coach,” “Red Pride,” “San Diego Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride,” “Spanish Pride,” and “West Indian Pride.”

[Mr. Moritz continues]  The factual evidence for my appeal was overwhelming, or at least I thought so. It seemed as though the federal government wanted everybody to have pride, except white people. It seemed to be a clear case of discrimination.

Another “jewel” from HarvardMagazine:

Race Traitor- Abolish the White Race excerpt:

“Every group within white America has at one time or another advanced its particular and narrowly defined interests at the expense of black people as a race. That applies to labor unionists, ethnic groups, college students, schoolteachers, taxpayers, and white women. Race Traitor will not abandon its focus on whiteness, no matter how vehement the pleas and how virtuously oppressed those doing the pleading. The editors meant it when they replied to a reader, “Make no mistake about it: we intend to keep bashing the dead white males, and the live ones, and the females too, until the social construct known as ‘the white race’ is destroyed-not ‘deconstructed’ but destroyed.”

    It’s obvious the racial healing envisions will be like the racial reconciliation he’s achieved with his own identity: a thorough suppression of the white portion in order to favor the black. It’s pathetic.

    Welcome, Mr. R and thanks for commenting!

    The global politician site has an article that addresses exactly what you have said in a societal context!

    I hope and pray that people are smarter and have realized some tough lessons.

    I was a teacher in the public school system for several years (teachers are giving up their careers in record numbers) —now, every time a new baby comes in to the family, my first question is about whether they will have to suffer the public school system.

    When did people start handing thier kids over and expect ‘miracles’ from gov’t entities?!? Teachers are even tasked with trying to train students how to behave at the lunch table. . .

    Pathetic is correct. Not pitiful, but pathetic.

    Incredulous!Freaking good post! LOL! I have thought this for quite some time. However, I certainly did not know that it went this far!

    So Harvard magazine (I knew most of the profs did) has put in print their desire and intention to destroy the white race. How politically correct!

    I would like to know how most of our great (in the beginning)Christian Universities have become so saturated with Atheist God haters and those determined to destroy our freedoms!

    You have so many good informative posts. I may have to hattip you on this one..

    love and hugs

    Is that simply unbelievable?!? The ‘adversity’ link offers the response Justin got from the USPTO and there are a couple of other places that tells how the woman (whose salary we pay, btw) acted/reacted. Just search his name and watch the links— People are PO’d!

    American Renaissance posts articles every day—good watchdog site and pretty amazing what goes on in the name of “diversity/justice/pluralism/multiculturalism/racism/disparities/justice/injustice. . . ”

    Good on you, Angie!! Yep, that’s Obama’s Harvard and there’s some frightening opinions/studies/idiocy in there.

    I don’t know if you’ve ever read my “Biblically Homosexual?” post, but Gil Rugh covers some of the Christain U disruptions and reforms. Judging by some of the comments it gets, I don’t know if anyone except me and a couple others have read the entire essay! LOL It’s very well written and scripturally documented. Not even any “hate speech”, man!!

    Thanks for always encouraging, Sis.

    Love & Hugs!

    Write in 100 words why you are proud to be a White American.

    Keeping silent is a crime.

    Of course to participate means you are a Racist. If you were ANYTHING and I Mean ANYHTING other than White We’d all be getting pats on the back right now.
    Do not concern yourself with what ignorant people have to say about you. If it gets to the point where they just don’t understand what it is you are doing. Calmly and politely as possible explain all you have to explain to them is you do not need to explain yourself to anyone for showing Pride In Your Tribe. By the way it is Your Tribe don’t allow anyone to take that from you.

    You may submit more than one entry if you wish.

    The intent here is to bring Proud White Americans Together in a forum. If every other race on the planet gets a forum to gather amongst themselves, so do We. Can these Racist(non-whites) really believe we will live under their oppression just because the federal and local governments are enforcing laws to subjugate Whites?
    We will not fear any tyranny. Stand up and be counted! This is your chance to be heard.
    Whatever happens will depend on us and our own level of involvement.
    Tell everyone you believe will participate about this. Your children and your children’s children will be forever great full. Make it personal. Make It positive .
    We as Whites need to get organized. This also includes squaring off with the Government. I wish it could be different, but we won’t be the ones taking the fight to them. They will bring it to Us. I Pray to be proven in time to be wrong about this. We will prevail if it be God’s Will.
    The United States today is 85% Christian. That’s a decline from what the history of this country reflects. The United States has had a major war every generation including this one. Just because you are a Christian does not mean you let people dictate to you how to live your life. It does not mean you can not live as you please, and if you please to write and submit an essay do so. If you do not that’s fine, but don’t let people tell you not to because they believe you shouldn’t.
    To say you are proud to be just an American not White American usually means you are a White American.
    Why are you Proud to be a White American?
