    Nobody here is a good old-fashioned WASP?

    Define WASP.



    The only reason these sorts of organizations make sense is because of the "you will receive X kind of discrimination because you look Y way" crap. If you're white, there's probably some sort of discrimination you will receive somewhere, but it's not going to be too bad on a college campus (usually). By this logic there shouldn't be any subtleties in student unions, and there should be a "funny Foreign accent" student union, too, because God knows that even if you're white, if you have a thick foreign accent, you're also fucked. Also, we need a student union for fat kids.

    You mean, they would even dare to discriminate me?

    Is there such a thing as "French pride" within the US?

    No, I'm not. It's another word that like Caucsasian has turned into a code word for white despite what it originally meant.

    Okay, I'm white. I'm as white as white can be. In fact, I'm too white, my skin is transparent on some parts of my body.

    Anglo-saxon? Does that mean that I speak English like an Englishman or American? Check. Descended from English/French/Germans? Not so much. Anglo-saxon as a redundant term for having glaringly white skin? yep.

    Now, the P is even trickier. Sometimes it stands for Protestant (which I'm definitely not), sometimes for Person (which, well, I'd like to consider I am).

    I have every reason to be confused.

    Yes, they would discriminate against you, no, there is no French pride because you're too white.

    Here y'go, read the wiki

    White Anglo-Saxon Protestant - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    IMO, that's quintessential white culture. It surely exists.

    Okay, cool, then I'm not a WASP, just a member of the Jewish conspiracy.

    My family was actually too working class to be considered WASP, so despite being a white anglo-saxon protestant with ancestors here since the 1700's, I'm probably not a WASP either.

    hmm.

    Well, not it makes sense why we don't have any white student unions. As the article says, "WASPs themselves opened the doors to competition."

    Yes, especially with Cajun culture in Louisana.

    Here's an example of their traditional folk music:
