If I talk about a group of white people, is it correct to refer to them as "the whites" or "the blacks" (if talking about black people)?
But let's say that someone is very famous in the whole world, because he/she fought for the human rights, fought against poverty etc. Could we say then that he/she is "the pride of the whites/the blacks"? Like for example, U2 is the pride of Ireland, Mr. X is the pride of the whites, Mrs. Y is the pride of the blacks.
Be very careful with such terms.
