    Well, you said that there is such a thing as black culture in America but not white culture.

    Because of slavery and the following segregation they were forced to bond together and develop their own.....hmmm.....way of thinking I guess. Crude term I know but the inability of them to assimilate into white culture forced them to develop their own.

    You can tell this from their slang, attitudes, rap music, all sorts of things.

    The North may have freed them but they didn't allow them to assimilate. In fact as late as the 1970's we still had the federal policy of red lining, drawing a map around certain spots on a map and not providing housing loans to blacks.

    It was what created the inner city problems basically. Good teachers avoided those areas, jobs left those areas and it forced many to resort to crime and violence.

    Many people don't know this but after the civil war the North was done, they freed them but they didn't want them coming North which led to the problems of reconstruction, then the Black laws, then Jim Crowe.....then civil rights.....all of that created a completely different culture.

    However, that culture is quickly fading

    Blacks are becoming more Americanized with every generation and whites are losing their white culture.

    In a few more generations this probably won't even be an issue anymore.
    Many blacks here in the USA didn't come from slave history. Much of our population is from immigration.

    Blacks share a history, food, and dare I say language or dialect experience that is apart from the American culture. But whites don't. They've always been the dominant race and are bothered now that they're losing that dominance. But I still don't know what white culture is. Our laws are based on British law. The predominant language comes from the UK. But our food is as diverse as the planet. Our entertainment is just as diverse. Give me a solid definition of white culture that doesn't include all the other races that live here.

    What it means to everyone who isn't fearful of talking about race. They dress the same as the predominant culture does, listen to the same music, speak the same, do the same activities, etc. Usually they have been raised in predominantly white neighborhoods and gone to predominantly white schools and still have predominantly white co-workers and social circles.

    I personally disagree with those "other threads". At any rate, it sounds like a silly argument to me. It's not as if a "culture" is something that you can hold in your hand and quantify. It's merely a collection of common behaviors that can be observed within a community. What difference does it make to you whether "white culture" does, or does not exist?

    I dunno Babba.
    I think there's a culture barrier (and language barrier) between this white person:



    And this one:
