    Why do we generalize ANYBODY as ANYTHING other than the ethnicity and culture to which they belong?

    Irish and Italians are different, Kenyans and South Africans are different, Japanese and Koreans are different, Cherokees and Hopis are different, Afghanis and Iraqis are different, Puerto Ricans and Cubans are different ...

    People generalize everyone and throw them into a politically correct category so they they know which little box to check on the "What race are you?" question. It's wrong, yes. It's incorrect, yes. It's insensitive to cultures, yes.

    If you're gonna be angry, be angry across the board! This happens to every person of every culture of every race known to man. It's something that we need to be more sensitive to.

    Why do you care? It doesn't matter what a label is, but what you do with your life that matters. I went to Wal-Mart yesterday with a friend and helped by buying $500.00 worth of toys for Toys for Tots so many needy kids will have a great Christmas. I didn't once notice anyone trying to figure out my heritage.

    Go donate some time at a homeless shelter and focus on what is truly important. Kids don't care what 'white people' mean, only that Santa won't forget that they are there.

    Go to a mens shelter and serve Christmas dinner.

    Go to a hospital and volunteer to cheer up the ill patients/kids and see if you even remember that this question was so lame.

    White people have been marginalized to provide for their systematic control by those bigoted entities in our society who need to identify "the enemy" so they can exercise their personal hatred and prejudices.
