Why in your opinion is it ok for latinos to say 'brown pride' or blacks to say 'black power' but racist for whites to say 'white power'?

Update:

I saw on the news that Donald Trump tweeted a video where a Trump supporter shouts out 'white power' so thats why i ask.

    White Power has a history surrounding the belief of white supremacy, anti-semitism and neo-nazism.  Black Power has a history surrounding emphasis on racial pride, economic empowerment, and the creation of political and cultural institutions.  Brown Power has a history surrounding advocating rights for Mexican-Americans, stemming from the Civil Rights Movement seeking equality of all minorities.

    Because Latinos and African-Americans have traditionally been viewed as disadvantaged/oppressed groups, and wanting "power" simply means wanting equality.  Whites are a privileged group so wanting "power" means keeping others oppressed.

    Because the liberal white people say so. No other reason at all.

    All three are racists statements.  Yes, non-white people can be racist, and often are.

    Nobody but us thinks it's OK to say black power but we don't care about that, it's our turn to take the wheel now

    Blacks saying "Black Power" means they are equal to whites.

    Whites saying "White Power" means they are superior to blacks.

    I think "black power" and "white power" are both wrong. "Brown pride" is fine though.
