i think that they should think they are important because they are going to be the minority very soon.

Yep, and all the while loudly proclaiming their patriotism/love of the USA. They never seem to see the contradiction.

I'll chime in...I'm white. Probably about as white as you can get (literally).

[What am I doing on this forum? I came on here to ask about visiting a powwow as an educational opportunity for my young children].

This is a really interesting discussion to me, because I live in one of the most multi-cultural cities in North America (Toronto). But I'm originally from small town America.
I think that, at least in places where there is more cultural diversity, race (as a distinctive at least) is becoming less and less important to people; not just to whites, but to everyone. Especially when it comes to marriages/family. In Toronto, it seems like I know just as many mixed raced families as I do one-raced families. This goes not just for white people, but for everyone. Because Toronto is 50-60% recent immigrants, I'm personally comfortable and happy being around people of any race; our church alone has people from over 20 different countries. So I guess what I am trying to say is that when I meet someone, I don't really think much about whether or not they will like me because I am white, and I don't think much about whether or not I will like someone based on whatever their race is. Hanging out with people of other races is pretty normal to me.

However, where I grew up, I found that people were very racist....I remember even my own mother one time using the n-word when a black lady cut her off on the freeway, and i found it to be quite shocking. I was never comfortable with it.

I don't know anyone who is overly proud (or at least makes it known) that they are overly proud for being white. I know, I'm not. I more or less see myself and my skin color as something I was born with and can't really help. I know a bit about my ancestry...some were Irish who immigrated in the 1800's when the potato famine hit Ireland, then others were Quakers who came over because they were being persecuted by the Church of England for their beliefs. But I guess I don't really do anything to "celebrate" that heritage or anything (I'm not a Quaker myself or anything).

not sure if that answers anyone's questions or not, but that's my experience.

So, you see, people DO Judge you by your appearance, NOT Your EXPERIENCE.

Everybody in Canada is Laid-Back, Eh?

But, those "immigrants", just like you, have left behind homelands....and PROTOCOLS they were raised in

EXPECTATIONS by their peers, family, clan, or tribe...to walk the walk...not just talk the talk

Now up in Canada, they don't have the Home Culture to keep them in line, they can mix & match, and nobody will bother them. Just like young kids at a playground, before they learn how to hate each other over race, culture, religion, etc.

Without context, I don’t even know what the question means. If someone came up to me and flat-out asked “Is being White important to you?” I wouldn’t know what to say. If the person asking were also White, I would suspect that they were a neo-Nazi/KKK type. If they were a person of color, well, I’d just be majorly confused.

Out of curiosity, I did just that, and asked a few friends that question. The initial responses were all about the same: WTF are you talking about? I would like to know the actual questions used in the survey. Interesting results, but I’m not sure I agree with the researchers’ conclusions.

Definitions can certainly vary, but the “privilege” part of “White privilege” is the privilege of not having to wonder if our race/skin color is going to be a factor in dealing with other people, and especially in dealing with people in authority.
So I guess the answer is both yes and no. It depends on the context of the question.

It was more like people identified with their nationality and not with their color but since most europeans used to be white, maybe still are, it was like this a kid sees a black person first time..., oh he looks interesting, different... The bottom line is identifying with ones culture and history, people from other countries come and well, represent a different culture. I have never met another white person who was proud to be white, as it was never important to talk about living amongst whites being white or pink The only time I ever heard of whites vs. other colors came from those who are not white and from radical nationalists. And these days the white people are in the minority on this planet anyway, concerning color.
