Your thoughts are the same as mine! It’s as if you climbed right into my brain! I have asked whites for years why they came here as Swedes, Germans, British, Irish, etc. but once they got here, why did they become “white”? None had an answer for me. If they are asked what “white” is, they immediately compare themselves to African Americans when that was not what I asked them. They seem to have given up their cultures and expect us to do the same.
