I think it is proud for those who do it, and it's done with good intent, but equally it offends others and opens us up to racism. |
Personally, I'd prefer us to stop. It served a purpose in a different time when we were regularly subject to racist abuse and nobody cared, but that time is over. I think we should move on. I also think the same thing about the 'n word' in rap music fwiw. At some point you're perpetuating the use of a word that should be allowed to die of death, and at that point you're being counter-productive as to why you needed to subvert the word in the first place.
But equally it's not something I'm particularly militant about. When I see groups of fans of all races singing 'Yid Army' passionately at games, as a Jew I feel quite proud. It's a rare thing to see anyone being proud of being Jewish, let alone non-Jews
