Dumb Pride

Always amused by people who take pride in something they had no hand in:

Culture – accident of birth
“Race” – accident of birth
Country – accident of birth
Heritage – accident of birth
Tribe – accident of birth
Sports team – ok, you picked it but never played yourself
etc

These two combined covers it adequately:
