In my opinion one must be of Western European/Scandinavian decent to be considered white.

I wouldn't say being on a certain continent makes you a certain race. Look at North America. Canada and USA are majority white, but then Mexico obviously isn't. Do you consider Mexicans white?

Or even look at Asia. Russia is part of Asia, and they are white. I consider Hispanic as it's own race.

Hispanics are people of Spanish ancestry. Maybe a long time ago they were considered white, but I would say Hispanics are their own race.

If youuuuuuuu've ever had to say, "some of my good friends are black", to defend yourself from being called racist........ you might be white.

If yoooouuuuuuuuuu've ever had your arse beat for saying the word n****r even though you were just singing along to to the song like everyone else......you might be white.

If yoooooouuuuuuuuuuuuuuu know all the words to Elton John's songs............you might be white.

Physical characteristics. If they are strong enough for someone to question your ethnicity, then you aren't white enough to be white

I'm white because I'm of European descent. I am also not ghetto.

Any serious takers out there to my question. I would love some perspective.




If you are rich, powerful, racist, controversial, angry, mean, trashy, educated, successful, or any type of management. You are white. Even if you are 100% african, people will consider you white. If the media looks at you and it would be beneficial for them to make you white, you are white.

You are confused, and you would benefit from studying some more history. The Anglos and the Saxons were germanic tribes that conquered the british isles. Angles - Angleland - England - get it? All of Europe is not considered Anglo-Saxons. Just some of the people in the British Isles, specifically England.

What are known as Hispanics or Latinos in the Americas are of a completely mixed ancestry. The Native Americans in the Islands of the carribean/Mexico/Central America/South America interbred with the European conquerors (Spanish mainly and some Portuguese) and the African slaves that the Europeans brought with them. The level of miscegenation depends on the area.

Now on the the original question. What makes a white person? All of these divisions are based on appearance and typical physical characteristics that are generally considered "white." Since the white race is obviously the fairest race, it takes a low percentage of other genes to drastically darken the skin. Thus affecting appearance. To make it simple if you look at a person and think they are white then... they are white. It has everything to do with appearance. Think about the fact that most black people in the U.S. are a fairly large percentage European in ancestry.

People might want to claim to be a apart of other races because of advantages or simply because they identify with it. For example, being Native American. There are pretty much no full blooded Native Americans around in the U.S. anymore. This just goes to show how arbitrary all of this is.
