"We openly acknowledge the fact that we're all white men," Gorvett said. "It's certainly not something we're proud of."

Female firefighters blazed a trail that few followed, By Dahleen Glanton, Chicago Tribune, June 25, 2011

I`m aware that being proud of being white is something that`s specifically forbidden, and if accused of being white and male myself, all I can say is I was born that way.

It may be that pride of race is irrational because, like being proud of being born wealthy or being born an Earl, it speaks only a extreme skill in choosing your own parents.

However if, under modern-day conditions, a fire company or a SEAL Team is composed only of white males, they probably should take pride in it because they have achieved a victory over affirmative action by hiring only those people who passed the test.
