    I Am White And I Am A Minority

    I feel the discrimination act for minorities needs to be updated.  I am white and I am a minority in my city.  I was born here and I saw how things needed to be changed to help blacks and hispanics but it had to do with being a minority.  Their race are no longer...

    Hate It

    I hate being white. I feel like I'm boring and have no culture, and what history white people have I am deeply ashamed of. I recognize that I have a ton of privilege being white, but I don't want to be white.

    I Like Being White.

    I'm mostly german, as well as irish, english and a trace of welsh. My grandpa's parents came from Germany in the 1920's. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I must say, I really am happy to be 'whitey'. But, uh, I prefer "European...

    Nobody is just "white".

    "White" people come from all different backgrounds, ethnicities, and upbringings. Look deeper and you will find culture and diversity within yourself and others.
