@OddBeMe - thank you with asking as Italians white for proving my point that Anglo Americans are ignorant, rude & uneducated - and thus harassing, discriminatory & bullying - about other people who are white but who anglos view as inferior / minority. Italians are considered white to other Europeans & that opinion has far more value than that of (Anglo) Americans.
@mistixs - your comment of One of my friends is of Russian descent and I wouldn't have known if he hadn't told me. He looks like any other white guy.,... What do you think Russians are, black? Chinese? Blue haired & scaly skinned? They are European & thus predominantly white. If your friend does not speak Russian, if his name/surname is not Russian then he is nothing more than an Anglo American of Russian ancestry & wouldn't face any more discrimination than any other Anglo.
Uh-huh. Yeah they do. Anyone who isn't English is a minority. They may not be treated on par with blacks or hispanics but you live in lala land if you think they're peers
@SomeBlondeChick well, unless I am told, I often can't tell the difference between different groups of white people, like Italian vs English.
Jesus christ. Are you daft? Someone with the name of Pietro (Peter in Italian) obviously isn't Anglo.
@SomeBlondeChick An·glo/ˈaNGɡlō/Learn to pronouncenounNORTH Americana white, English-speaking American as distinct from a Hispanic AmericanAn Italian-American, even with an Italian name, would seem to fit that definition.
Unless they don't speak English
@mistixs - ROFL. If someone's name is Pietro the likeness he speaks just English is as slim as cows growing wings & flying.
@SomeBlondeChick so just because he has a non-English name, that precludes him from learning English? That's a rash generalization.
@mistixs - wherever did I say that? I said he likely speaks more than just English & thus he is not Anglo. I speak English. But I would never consider myself an Anglophone because my mother tongue is French.
Are you daft? Italians are not Anglos, Russians are not Anglos, Poles are not Anglos, etc.
@SomeBlondeChick are Italians white?
@OddBeMe - they are to Europeans not ignorant Americans & that's all that matters.
@SomeBlondeChick mkay. Am I white?
@OddBeMe - actually thank you for proving my point that Anglo Americans are ignorant individuals who think anyone who isn't white is a minority. Go visit Italy & learn a thing or two about Italians you cad.
@OddBeMe - what do I care if you're white. More to the point you're an ignorant American.
@SomeBlondeChick are you white?
@SomeBlondeChick One of my friends is of Russian descent and I wouldn't have known if he hadn't told me. He looks like any other white guy.
@OddBeMe - probably more white than you can ever hope to be seeing as I'm European not some American god knows what's in your background mutt.
@mistixs Russian descent. So what? Does he speak Russian. If he doesn't he's just another Anglo American of Russian ancestry. Big deal. He wouldn't get discriminated against unless his name / surname is Russian.
@SomeBlondeChick oddbeme is a Scandinavian-Texan. He is very leftist and narrow minded sometimes like many Scandinavian-Americans I feel like. however it’s also harder for me to think of anyone more white than Scandinavians
@Tea-Spaghetti Unlike British, particularly Irish, Scandinavians tan. If we were to use his logic, as Italians can likewise tan even if they can be rather Germanic in appearance, he's not white either.
@Tea-Spaghetti so it’s just society that labels white and brown. That’s idiotic and should be stopped immediately.
Yes I agree.
@Tea-Spaghetti Our divide lessens.
No ones making them wear that...
