How hard could that be to understand?
    What's my "query"?

    should we expect similar threads asking about other cultures other than "black" and "white"?

    Whatever anyone wants to say. We throw around the terms, but what do they mean to us? You ask what is racist mean over and over and that inevitable leads to talking about prejudice as a lower form of racism or sometimes not racist at all which inevitably leads to discussion on differences in culture, since, in fact, there is no such thing as biological race. It's a social construct, and as such is ever-changing.

    Sure, if you want. Lots of fascinating cultures. It's like to know more about Slavic people. If in fact there is a distinct culture for them. I have a newish neighbor from Yougoslavia and I can't (yet) make sense of what exactly Slavic is. From a glance on wiki, there seem to be several peoples called Slavic.
    Thanks from the watchman

    just don't see the point of doing that. I was just reading through the other thread and there were various cultures being discussed already. But hey, if you want to it's fine. I'd hate to subject you to the same bs accusations that some folks around here engage in. Showing up on threads just to bitch and moan over "too many threads on race". That sucks and I apologize if that's how I came off.

    That's ok. Most threads on race are divisive I think is why they get that reaction. I honestly believe 100% that the government and the media (as its propaganda wing) want us divided and I can't make a dent in that but I can push back. The government wants us fighting each other for the ever shrinking portion of the pie that they permit us.

    And I personally feel that Hurricane Harvey showed how everyday people truly act towards one another in the true American way having nothing to do with race or anything else. But the anomalies is what has so many people transfixed and giving a different impression.

    I consider them white since most of them consider themselves white, so yet another white culture gets added to the mix that is multicultural white culture, yet white culture borrows and absorbs from other cultures as easily from Slavs as it does from blacks. White culture, like the color white, truly knows no color, being an amalgam of all colors, and so simply is culture, and anyone is welcome.

    I hope that helps.

    Yes Slavics are white but many have darker skin and hair. I would think my neighbor's brother is Arab if I didn't know differently. They are both strikingly handsome

    In terms of Culture, they seem to identify with 'Eastern Europeans'. His wife is from Estonia. That woman might actually have a harder time getting a tan than I, which is saying something.
