Team Quest’s Michelle Ould Calls ‘Brown Pride’ Tattoo Into Question, Wants ‘White Pride’ Bra Allowed In Cage

The UFC heavyweight champion’s chest has long been adorned with a tattoo expressing his pride for his Mexican heritage.

While many people may look in awe of the ‘Brown Pride’ lettering he has chosen to use as a symbol of his cultural upbringing, others, often closed-minded individuals seem to think it’s part of a racist and/or racially charged movement in America.

This is obviously not the case.

Team Quest female fighter, Michelle Ould has decided, for whatever reason, that right now is the time to express her desire to liken the pride of the UFC champion, but for her own race.

Check it out:

Unfortunately for Ould, terms such as ‘white pride’ and ‘white power’ have long been associated with racism and bigotry.

The simple facts are that in America, there is a long history of ignorance regarding ethnicity and color that stretches back just a mere 50 years. The ‘civil rights movement’ was one of the most needed acts in our countries short history and questioning the use of such terms brings back thoughts of what was once a socially unequal society we have been fortunate enough to surpass in modern times.

The term ‘brown pride’ is a tough pill for some to swallow, but it doesn’t have the same negative history attached to it as the term Ould is suggesting.

    We would evolve if people stopped being proud of being part of a genetic fucking accident.

    This article is f@cking stupid. Brown Pride was made because of RACE and a COPY OF WHITE PRIDE. If you are too blind to see it then you are the ignorant person. That is the point she is trying to make. Cain may not be a racist BUT his tattoo is taking words that WERE DESIGNED TO BE RACIST. White power is TOTALLY different than white pride and the author clearly shows how ignorant he is by comparing the two. It was actually started with BLACK PRIDE not WHITE PRIDE. The racial association is with WHITE POWER, but if you go into any prison system all the pride tattoos are associated with race and racial issues. I personally don’t give a crap, as long as you only have one tattoo like that. If you have a black power tattoo who gives a crap, but if you also have a black power or black panther tattoo, then no not in the ring, the same with white pride, ok who gives a crap, just don’t add the lightning bolts or the swastika and I am cool with it.

    • -.- says:

      think your referring to the Nazi version of swastika… Kinda similar to the Indian one(ie from India)… just turn it 45 degrees you would get the one from India which they use for hindu religion… Kinda pisses me off that symbol was used to represent Nazi!!

  3. Apereira says:

    I herd that the truth is brown pride is the nome of a mexican gang in LÁ área

  4. Big Daddy says:

    Who wrote this crap man?? Why should this woman NOT be allowed to wear a bra or a tatt which says “White Pride”?? Bc its mot politically correct?

    Well guess what. FUCK YOU PC!! Why are white ppl not allowed to celebrate our colour? What is the difference between “Brown Power” and “White Power”. Is it bc white ppl are not in a minority? So fucking what?? She should be allowed to wear whatever the hell she wants, as long as it not racist, sexist etc.

    And if anyone has a problem with the term White Power, when it refers to celebrating the fact that white ppl are proud of their colour, then they can go get fucked!!

  5. Big daddy says:

    She should wear whatever she wants but everyone is gonna think she’s an ignorant racist bitch. Brown pride has nothing to do with racism it’s being proud of your culture. White pride or white power is associated with racism and that’s how everyone will label you. Which it doesn’t matter now cause the cat is out of the bag.

  6. GRT 3000 says:

    …so let the bitch where a ‘white pride’ bra and wave whatever sorry ass flag she wants. tell her to do it!! see where that gets her.

  7. 757 says:

    It’s all dumb who cares.

  8. Dddddddddd says:

    What about being proud to be an American. I know I’m proud of all you colorful freaks.

  9. The Way Of The Dutchman says:

    It’s a dumb tattoo to say the least.
    .
    Just think about it…. he’s proud of his ancestral Spanish conquistadores who came to Mexico and massacred the native Aztecs and Inca’s for their land and gold.

    • BT says:

      Yes, the natives would have never done anything like genocide, mass sexual slavery, or hunger control. no, no, no…. it was the evil Spanish hurting the “innocent” and “peaceful” natives.

      Develop critical thinking skills.

      At the very least watch Apocalypto if you can’t manage the first two.

      • The Way Of The Dutchman says:

        I suggest you should learn how to read comprehensively before you get on your high horse. Because I never said the Aztecs and Inca’s were peaceful and innocent.
        .
        I said they were natives who were massacred for the land and gold by the Spanish. You are acting like the Spanish were peacebringers which they weren’t. So now move on and educate yourself.

  10. KIDD433 says:

    I can see how people might not understand the Brown Pride tattoo. But if you’ve spent some time in California, or anywhere on the West coast , where there are a lot of Mexicans wouldn’t think that. It’s not a racial gesture, in the least. It’s a very common tattoo among Chicanos which is basicly another way of saying Mexican Pride. And a very common tattoo on the West Coast worn by Chicanos

  11. Sasquatch says:

    We all bleed red so none of this BS matters.

  12. Nate "THE ROID CHEAT" Marquardt says:

    I have always thought Cain was far far too white to have a brown pride tattoo. He’s as white as any white people i know

  13. Chuy De La France says:

    I personally would not have a problem with anyone that wants to sport out “white pride.” The reason why people feel all “Ouch my butt hurts” is because of the connotation it has. If you want to push the envelope than go right ahead and sport it out. I personally think you should name it differently, but still have the “positive” emotion, just so you wont have to take poop from people. Caucasian Nation or American Pride honestly sound pretty bada**, if I were white I’d rock that beezy out. Other suggestions include but not limited to: Milky Fresh, Frosty Dynasty, White Honor, White Delight, American Glory .etc

    Reference/acknowledgment/PROPOSAL:
    I am a first generation Mexican, I have experienced a few racial encounters during my childhood. That being said I do not hold a grudge against that particular race. Since it was a “persons” opinion and not a universal opinion that a whole race upholds as truth. Also it was a different time period and we should let go of the past generation’s mentality. White folks cannot go back and change their ancestors actions or mentality. Most races want equality, but in reality most of them want to be more superior than the rest. The white man was once the pinnacle, but now he is the minority. To conclude everyone stop being butt-hurt about the past. We should learn from the past not get stuck in it.
