    Sure, but when people seek to make fun of blacks and do so with food items they are always Southern food - I never have understood that.

You bring one of those people here to Zanesville and I have no doubt everyone would stop and stare and disapprove.

    Whites aren't defending their culture from other cultures, they just want everyone who openly displays any (perceived) rejection of they consider normal to instead conform to their expectations. 'Be one of us" as the freaks said.
    Actually in the case of having a Catholic President a lot of Americans have protestant ancestors who fled Catholic rule and were afraid of it here.

    There is no "Hispanic" Culture. There are Mexican, Honduran, Nicaraguan, etc. cultures. They may be related. They may be similar. But, each is different and it's own culture

    RACE is NOT Culture. Although, each RACE has several cultures largely founded and created by said race......
    I agree with you, but some posters have said otherwise.

    Be that as it may, the halacha is that if not born to a Jewish mother, one is not born Jewish. Judaism is not a religion that one joins merely by proclamation of faith, as with Xianity and Islam.

    Of course, one can always demonstrate one's commitment by converting, but that could potentially enter a whole other controversy: Who is a Jew?

    I know a few women who married Jewish doctors who converted religions and refer to themselves as Jewish. Are they not considered Jewish?

    What is the American culture that white are separate from? What are the foods, history, dialect of Americans?

    I made this thread because it was said in another that black culture, in part, is purposefully counter-culture. Counter to what? Babba says (in this thread) American. I don't think blacks who choose counter-culture are anti-American, I think they want to reject WHITE Culture. And there is a lot of evidence for this.

    Now, of course a myraid of things have been said in various directions, which is fine, since my question was open-ended. I am not picking on you, Babba. I reference your comments because you are one of the few who is actually trying to define anything. And I find your comments interesting.

    My dispute with that though is that if there is no white culture, there is nothing for blacks to rebel against. I do not agree that it's 'Anti-American'.

    Also, American Culture was and is shaped by the dominant culture, which is made up of white people. A constant source of complaint by many and yet now, all of a sudden, it doesn't exist. Which leads to how SOME extremists ARE anti-American. Like Farrakan.

    Perhaps but calling it just a white persons problem is probably not going far enough. I suggest everyone on this thread read a book called "White Trash", it will open your eyes to our real history and also to who really ran our nation from day one. Hint; it sure wasn't the recent immigrant. The dominant theme of our original founding culture was class based, we could not escape England no matter how hard they tried. All subsequent cultural adaptations rest upon this one basic foundation, class based upon land, wealth, education, speech and status. The little sub-cultures that sprung up everywhere were from outcasts or from the local ruling class. 230 years later, the results are that white people now lay claim to that same desire to be dominant over everyone else, they gave up on class based mores and just accepted that being white was good enough.
