Why am I not allowed to be proud to be white?

I am from Italy originally, I just moved with my family here to America.I noticed that black Americans have a lot of pride in being black, I thought that was good for them because Africa is a great place.I then told someone that I am proud to be white, when they told me about their pride.He got angry started to yell at me and talk about how I shouldn't be proud because my ancestors were slave owners of his people, the thing is that my ancestors never left Italy.They never owned black slaves, and I have nothing to do with slavery.Why can't I be like him and be proud of my race?

Why am I not allowed to be proud to be white? I am not even racist.
