    The concept of "white" only exists as a default - to be "white" means to be not of any defined ethnicity (which is why the definition of who is white in American society has expanded and contracted so much). Thus by its very nature, the concept of "white pride" is disparaging of other ethnicities in a given society, since it is essentially taking pride in not being one of "them".

    No, it does not. I've been to Renaissance fairs and eaten tasty sauerkraut and bratwurst. I never said I didn't participate in (white) American culture.
    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.

    Yes, and I participate in the black culture everytime I dine at KFC or ride the New York metro.

    But that citation posits that blacks, Latinos, and Asians contribute to what American culture IS. Not that they participate. They help to CREATE it. That does undermine your point.
