    Actually the whole "OMG WHY DON'T WE HAVE WHITE HISTORY MONTH????" argument is one that I sadly used to support.

    It's usually based on the Thinking function's inability to pay attention to context.

    I used to be like you--then I grew a brain, a dick, and a heart!
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    The brain part is arguable, based on your posts.

    I sunburn pretty easily.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I was going to suggest "not having an overarching white culture."

    How that? White culture is everywhere, celebrated daily. It's like one nonstop party.
    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'd still like some proper examples of what white culture is.

    Yes because we are a majority, but that doesnt explain why its still racist if we SAY we want to celebrate white culture. Or try to celebrate white cultural things officially. Celebrating culture is either all good or all bad. The in between thing is asinine.

    EHHHHHH! WRONG! Nazis celebrated "Aryan culture." Soviets celebrated "proletarian culture." That doesn't mean that a St. Patrick's Day parade is bad.
