White is a State of Mind.
…and Anglo-Saxon-Greek-Roman influences.
Hey, don’t forget us Celt/Magyar/Slavic/Huns!
And don’t forget us Normans/Norsemen, either!
Covers all the bases. And the debases.
Depends upon what time of year has the most sunshine whether I’m white or not.
White is a culture. One whose precepts of right/wrong, fairness, and reward for enterprise is one parasites need to exterminate in order to survive.
I LIKE TO CALL IT “CIVILIZATION”
As Stella points out, anyone who immigrated to the United States and “assimilated to America’s language, culture, and traditions” is considered white.
Which means that as colorful and diverse as the cast of characters in Day by Day are, and the even more colorful and diverse cast of characters who read it, support it, and comment on it are, we are all so white a person could go snowblind from just glancing at a single strip.
Of course this kind of stupidity comes from the same brain dead, mouth breathers who endlessly hype Climate Change, Socialism, Equity, and genetic experiments masquerading as mRNA “vaccines.”
On a more positive note, Santa probably isn’t the only one who is making a list and checking it twice. Due diligence is apparently also a trait of “whiteness” which means there is no shortage of Tango Lists and Bingo Cards being updated and maintained.
Hear hear! And don’t forget the Smithsonian’s gaffe of a year or two back which they quickly pulled…A graphic displayed in the guidelines, entitled “Aspects and Assumptions of Whiteness in the United States,” declares that rational thinking and hard work, among others, are white values.

This whole One Drop Doctrine is getting weird. The sheer number of categories I qualify for is daunting.
I could basically throw a dart at a map of Europe and hit “Home”. Thank you Roman slavers.
Mongrels of the world, UNITE!
Dang, and I was just enjoying being a Deplorable…
You can all also enjoy being a deplorable mongrel now.
We are all one race. The human race.
We can all breed with other human groups, or not, however people look with favor on one another.
Think of the science fiction that dealt with entire worlds being wiped out because the machine devised to kill all non pure bred aliens could find no such pure bred beings. Mongrels all is the rule. There are differences. Viva la …..
Remember. Neanderthal DNA still exists in many of today’s human beings.
As a descendant (and member) of a tribe that in the historically recorded past bought land in Europe and only in the last century was deemed of white status because racists wanted more people to hate, delete, and replace, I resemble that remark. The tribe amused itself for about 70 plus years keeping to old historical habits and plundered across the width and breadth of Europe until some nations got wise and 5 nation’ s armies pinned their plundering raid between Switzerland and the Mediterranean. They stopped their European shopping trips and somewhere along the line converted to Christianity. Being a loving and friendly people they helped other groups that were defeated or damaged by other groups. Many groups had some members join the tribe. The Saxons were invited in and had several areas that they self governed for hundreds of years. The Ashkenazim, Peshneg, and other tribes driven out of their lands were given refuge for a time, and most of them passed on to other areas of their own accord, though some stayed and can still be found there today. Ottoman and Muslim invaders have attacked the area for over 1300 years and taken many slaves and much plunder even after the tribe purchased the area over 1000 years ago. The Ottomans had to be removed by force after the Turks imposed Sharia or forced tribute over a large part of the area.
I have an alternate theory of such of this history, but I have said much of it previously.
Anyone who states that all cultures have equal validity and all aspects must be respected as no culture is better than any other is wrong.
I also oppose the whirled peas take on culture. Then there is only one culture and I say that it is no culture except “Might makes Right,” no matter how many fantasies and delusions they use to promote it or say that it is great and must be imposed.
Welcome to the party, Pals.
(An aside. During US military actions in Haiti, the people considered “Black” in the United States of America were called “Blancs” in Haiti. To the Haitians, these Black soldiers were all white. They joined the party also.)
“White” is a concept based on mental capability and not on skin color. To the “Left”, anyone who is logical and precise about job, Ideology, or religion is “White”. Anyone who makes it to work on time, who maintains a grade in a drain, can figure conduit fill, uses and understands “big words” and “complex sentences” is “White”. Those are likely in STEM courses or planning next season’s harvest, then in “studies”:courses that are based on well illustrated “social” blather.
The old phrase has been altered. “I think, therefore I am White”. On the DD, certainly.

Hence the term, “That’s mighty white of ya!” irrespective of outward color.
Now often used derisively, it was/is based on true attitudes and behaviors.
Let’s hear it for the good old American Mutt! 😉
How about a “message received” or some such. My Senator sends a “Confirmed” when the message gets through.I frequently get a “duplicate message”:pop up with no indication of what I am supposed to do. M aybe something as simple as having the message box go blank.
The Left: Civilization is racist! We must destroy it.
I’m sure they’d love it when civilization falls…and the warlords take power, killing everyone who stands in their way, particularly the Left.
I can’t picture the warlords putting up with the whole racist/sexist/woke BS. It’s likely to get them put up against a wall and their remains dumped in a mass grave.
That’s because they all believe, in their inner fantasy, that *they* will be the Lords, ruling over their demesnes of compliant, disposable Serfs and simply doing away with anyone who opposes them.
The idea that they, too, will be reduced to the level of “disposable Serf” in their Brave New World Order never even occurs to them — and they will be taken *completely* by surprise when, after they’ve achieved their Glorious People’s Revolution of the People, the ones they helped put into power turn out to have no further use for them and move to have them eliminated.
It’s almost as if Leftists are incapable of learning from history, or something…
It took me a while to realize this, but when lefties talk about “white supremacy,” they’re not talking about Nazis and the Klan and such. They are talking about cultural values — individuality, rule of law, capitalism, meritocracy, etc. — which A) were developed to their current state by Europeans, or Americans of European descent, and thus are “white;” and B) are the cultural mores of our country, which everyone is expected to follow, and thus “supreme.”
Other countries have their own cultural norms, but you never hear talk of “Japanese supremacy” or “Nigerian supremacy.” The Newspeakers have taken an utterly banal concept — that cultures have norms — and attached to it, in this one case, the most vile epithet available.
The fatal flaw, as Chris and many of the commenters have pointed out, is that these American cultural norms — the most powerful and successful set of values ever, when allowed to function and flourish properly — are available to *anyone*, regardless of such irrelevant markers as color, creed, sex, etc.
Thus, “white supremacy” — i.e. Euro-American cultural norms — is America’s greatest gift to mankind.
The exact opposite of everything you describe in your first paragraph is in the phrase “diversity is our strength,” which is another example of lefties inverting reality and, like Slim Pickens riding The Bomb down to the target taking a false premise down to it’s inevitable failure. While the United States benefitted from millions of legal immigrants that came to the US to succeed, they did so because they gave up their cultural foibles when they hit the coast. There was no Greek time where you showed up to work a half hour late. There was no “manana” mentality if you came from Mexico. There was no class arrogance if you came from the UK or internecine strife if you came from a troubled area like the Balkans. You came here, you were expected to act like an Anglo Saxon with a Calvinist work ethic or you’d starve. And once you started working, all those ideas brought in from other countries could finally find purchase in an American economy that wasn’t preoccupied with a moribund class system where you were destined to stay in the same class you were born in.
In short, what you described in your first paragraph is a unique American culture as distinct as any other culture in human history. The America hating left HAS to destroy it to succeed, so they do what they do with every issue they want to control and charge racism to slander those who would defend it.
Hard times forge strong men, strong men create good times, good times foster weak men, weak men enable hard times. Here we are at the end.
And of course the hard times will last at least a generation, or at least until enough people wake up to the consequences of willful idiocy.
Another angle on the state of things mentioned above can be distilled into a conflict between the two branches of the European Enlightenment.
One, spearheaded by Jean Jacques Rousseau, denied the existence of Human Nature and declared we could create Heaven on Earth at gunpoint.
The other, labeled the Scottish Enlightenment, embraced Reason in every sense and gave rise to a movement to create a rational means to take human nature into account, especially in Government. The result, among other things, was the U.S. Constitution.
Rousseau’s movement has resulted in unending wars and even in peace has actually murdered well over 100 million (and counting) people in pursuit of that “Heaven on Earth”. Thus proving for all time there is no “Noble Savage” to empower.
But Rousseau’s vision is an addictive drug, a disease, promising prosperity and happiness without effort to generation after generation and it has now infected our society.
If we survive this test we absolutely must take measures to see to it that this will not happen again.
I can say that the Left does not read or adhere to the Terms of the Contract.
Terms as in DON’T BE A DICK and KEEP YOUR HANDS, YOUR IDIOT OPINIONS AND OTHER BODY PARTS TO YOURSELF.
“Welcome to the resistance.”
Dark comedy (as it were), hard truth, and dire warning all in one right there.
“So… we’re just a coupla white people?”
For some people that realization is just so disappointing…
I ain’t no body’s Smurf….
