    And it isn't about whining, I don't give a shit about white clubs etc, what annoys me is the double standard, either we are all Americans like we are supposed to be and have the same rights or we aren't. Are you telling me non-whites are second class citizens? I know they have been treated as such in history in this nation, but we don't solve a wrong by committing another wrong. Either its all ok, or its all not ok. Otherwise its hypocritical.
    Did I mention you're waaaaaaay INTJ? All of your positions on justice are fairness are hella Te+Fi.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    White culture is a mix of various European cultural norms and traditions, like black culture is a mix of West and South African cultures, like Asian culture is a mix of Asian cultures.

    These become more broad based categories in a country like the US because as we go along we don't remain homogeneous. For example, I am Irish, Italian, German, Polish, French and Native American. The largest blood quantum I have at best is 1/4 Irish. i am quite basically white because I dont belong to any 1 ethnicity so I go with the broad based term white, just like blacks do because they cant pinpoint their ancestors properly since most Black Americans came to the US via slaves.

    What makes it distinct from general American culture (which incorporates many aspects of those minority cultures)?

    Except I am not INTJ, I am just against hypocrisy. Believe it or not most INFJs are. Especially the ones who didn't grow up in the subs with all the happy white kids, but instead grew up in black neighborhoods and were told they were the "man" all their life even though when you look out your bedroom window you dont see white faces on the street. So lets shit can the discussion about my type and just focus on the topic at hand. Because I really dont have the desire to be told what I am by another person who doesn't know me or anything about me based on a very narrow view of my mind.

    And I STILL contend that Irish shouldn't be considered whites, damned green blooded bastards!

    I dunno, go hang out in a Puerto Rican or a black neighborhood and see if its quite as pervasive.

    Except you are totally INTJ. Your posts are utterly devoid of Fe and filled to the brim with Te and Fi...you just think your Fi is actually Fe.

    Anyway I'm dropping the issue at hand because I already know all the argument lines you're going to take and they all suck. Cheers.

    I love arguing with ENTPs, their lack of insight into much of anything leaves my brain dry and chaffed from them hammering their square peg into my uhhhh triangular hole ahem. But you are totally wrong, but please don't stop talking over me and telling me what I think, I wouldn't want you to feel like you didn't matter.
