    Whites are the predominant race. Not the predominant culture.

    I'm not trying to define it on my own. The OP title has a question mark. I am not a race scholar. I saw you and some others claiming there is no such thing. I think there is, even if I can't define it well. Your definition of black culture wasn't very good either, btw.

    Because most "proud" white Americans will talk endlessly about their O-so interesting gene pool and about ancestors they've never met from storied lane in "the old country."

    Most African Americans, on the other hand, can tell you vaguely which part of the American south their Anglo-Germanic surname came from.

    Get it?
    Sounds here like you're making it a racist thing? Like if Italians, for instance, talk about their Italian heritage they are necessarily racist?

    I can't help but think of 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' how everything good was supposedly started with the greeks. I've noticed that many groups claim sayings. 'There is a Greek Saying'. 'There is an Italian saying' There is a Chinese proverb' and they all are the same!

    Well I assume the OP is referring to America but it may mean things it different parts of the world although not too different.

    Americanization was founded and built by whites basically, they set the rules of what our nation would follow. Although that's a generalization its essentially true.

    Its this culture that whites developed which leads to many people fearing it might go away.

    They don't realize that culture is not a permanent thing, its ever evolving.

    In another 10 or 15 generations we will have people missing the mixed culture we have today because it will be something different.

    Yes, I mean America. It was said that blacks do have a culture because they all supposedly come from the same part of Africa (not actually true) and a couple other things that didn't make much sense. Food, the food was created from poverty, not African traditions. And white Southerners also have the same foods as part of our culture. That is something we (Southerners) all share, white or black.

    See, this would be part of Southern CULTURE. Perhaps the word is being misunderstood.

    But blacks have had to follow the same rules. As have Hispanics and Chinese and French people and Russians, etc. How do the rules and laws that we all have to follow make a white culture?

    Just because cultures evolve that doesn't prove that there is a white culture.

    Whites are fearful of losing their dominance over the American culture.

    "White Culture" can be broken down into a microscopic minority who concern themselves with it, a massive majority who don't even think about it, and lily white leftists -- who disingenuously and cynically signal their non-existent virtue by pointing their fingers or apologizing for it for political reasons.

    They're the problem. They're always going to be the instigator for any hatred, divisiveness and violence. always.

    You see, leftism dies on the vine if the majority of people are relatively happy, content, and prosperous in their own lives, so for it to flourish, everyone must be told how victimized, cheated and miserable they are...

    or made to feel guilty and ashamed.... of something...usually of 'oppression'.

    Thankfully, sane America is finally waking up to their bread and butter, Identity/Victim-Oppressor politics, and are rejecting it.
