Response to rug (Original post)

Tue Nov 4, 2014, 07:37 PM

27. I suspect the definitions of "proud" are at fault-

Boghossian is surely obtuse here.
One definition describes pride as being a result of one's accomplishments.
In only this sense, it may not make sense to be "proud" of anything one does not choose or do.
We use "pride", though, to be the same as not being forced into being ashamed of one's self for something we do not control. In this sense-pride is surely reasonable.

Earlier in life, I felt pride referred to one's own accomplishments. I never understood white or black pride--it is only because I was using the term in a different sense. I get it now--it has changed.

This author should know that the term has evolved and not sound like such a d-bag.
