    I'd take issue with the "by its very nature" part of the statement (because that doesn't leave any space for specific circumstances in reality), but I would generally agree. I would also add that our concept of "black" only exists because of the sad history of African slavery in North America. "Black" culture in the United States would be WAY different if Africans immigrated to North America voluntarily in the late-19th and early-20th Centuries, as did so many Europeans.

    The possibility that someone could start a white group that allowed minorities entry and wasn't based on an exclusionary concept of whiteness. That IS possible. You could have a Caucasian-American/European-American/whatever student group that was not racist. It's not automatic.

    Then what would make that a "white" group, then?

    It was started by white students to discuss whatever issues they decided affected them.

    What issues affect white people as a distinct group that no other group experiences?
    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.
