    There's no over arching culture for any race. Maybe some nationalities.

    So tell me, what culture is it that immigrants have to assimilate into? If there's no white American culture then what is the origin of the phrases "Americanized" or "Westernized" and what the hell are radical Muslims waging Jihad against? Why is America's number one export it's culture (hence the Coke and Pepsi reference), but evidently there is no culture to export?

    I'm not saying that non-whites haven't contributed to American culture, but referring the origins of many aspects of American culture. Thankfully they're being diluted which is why salsa is outselling ketchup and Chinese carryouts are in even the most lilly white areas.
    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.

    It's the stuff we don't export that is the "whitest". Like Nascar and country music.

    Why does it necessarily have to be redneck?

    I know I'm from Jacksonville.

    I've grown up in the depths of southern aristocracy such as it still exists. You think I don't know what a redneck is?

    Being a redneck has nothing to do with being white and everything to do with being rural.
