"White Pride" Denied Trademark (via ELLIOT LAKE News & Views)


Double standards!

"White Pride" Denied Trademark Elizabeth Wright 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 … Read More

    You use others material to make your points, If you have traveled much outside of California you would see an unequal majority.

    The reason I say this is because I have traveled quite a bit and in the rural parts of the US which are for the most part all white Americans with the exception of some minorities in the communities, in most places blacks are still called names Jews are still stereotyped and American Indians are still considered enemies.

    For those who are Hispanic they are considered Mexican even if they’re not from Mexico and they were born in the United States.

    The term White Pride is used everywhere in the U.S. and mostly worn as tattoo’s, the jails are full of guys who think the system is against them even though for the majority of White Americans the system works in favor of whites I use the term white because that is what you used. The word American covers all races in the US. It’s too bad a police officer is not race neutral but would prefer to to make a trademark about white pride nation wide instead of calling for all races and ethnic groups to be as one unified as being all Americans.

      You are missing my point. People are allowed to use Black Power, Brown Power as they like. So what is the difference if White Power is used by some? It does not matter if you agree with the folk’s points of views. The bottom line, is they all should have the right to use, and copyright the slogans. You are not trying to suggest that Brown Pride and Black Pride do not promote racist views in some are you?

    Jheaton, I got the point you were trying to make.

    Freedom of expression.

    According to the article, Whites are being persecuted for being white.

    Blanket statements are made about all other races non-white are doing the persecuting I disagree with that notion.

    The majority of non-white races are not involved in persecuting whites.

    There are fringe elements in all races and ethnic groups who are extreme for whatever their reasons.

    68% if not more of the US Population are white. In California you have larger number of the minority population I believe it to be 46% leaving 54% of the population being white. I think the notion that America is being over run with minorities is paranoia.

    The Liberal government entities who decide these things are to blame not all the minorities.

    I am a protester against what I believe to be mismanagement or corruption in our governments. I am an advocate for the ethical treatment of the mentally ill, and against racism,discrimination in all forms.

    Jheaton, I went to the original site of what Justin J. Moritz writes concerning this case of White Pride Country Wide being rejected as a trademark due racial and religious reasons. According to the link Mr. Moritz had posted, the link say’s that he abandoned the Trademark. Unless I am misunderstanding what the word abandoned means did he abandone the word or did the USPTO abandon the trademark?

    As far as I go I do not support any type of racism from any race or ethnic group nor do I care if my neighbor is white,black or brown. If any of these trademarks were created purposely to promote racism I am against it.

      This is one of the points being made. The process was intentionally slowed so the end result would be Moritz would have to re-apply.
