    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    I'm pretty sure if you think hard you can come up with a few.

    Apple Pie, hot dogs, and hamburgers
    Baseball and Football
    Cowboys, Injuns, and the idea of the Wild West
    Blond hair, blue eyes as the representation of the "typical" American
    Prom Queens
    Jocks
    Nerds
    The Bible Belt and The Midwest as representations of Americana (think Normal Rockwell)
    Coke vs. Pepsi
    Pure white Womanhood (southern belles, California girls, East Coast boarding school types, etc.)
    Superhero white men who always save the universe from certain doom (although Will Smith has made quite the dent in this)

    ...and the list goes on.

    okay, sure, but what about those Easterners?

    I've seen brown hair, blue eyes as more common

    Nerds

    The Bible Belt and The Midwest as representations of Americana (think Normal Rockwell)
    okay, but The Bible Belt and The Midwest have an awful lot of Blacks, too.

    Coke vs. Pepsi
    *doesn't quite get this one*

    Pure white Womanhood (southern belles, California girls, East Coast boarding school types, etc.)

    Well then what you think matters to you.

    It isn't relevant to what protean thinks.

    How are we going to make a white cultural group if we don't agree on what white culture is?
