That sounds a little like my brother; there's some questions regarding his parentage but my father always treated him like one of the family, and that's good enough for me. His brothers though gave him a load of shit about it when he was growing up-- I guess that's not too different than how some of these situations with race can be. Some people won't care about the distinctions, others will have their pet animosities.

Ah, so you're saying it's like an inferiority complex? Sort of like the other side of Rudyard Kipling's viewpoint. Maybe it has something to do with embracing colonialism as a ticket upwards, like how English was established as an international language for business? It's odd though to think about minorities driving their own cultural erosion-- I'm sure some Nationalists would favor everyone having stronger identities.

Otakaiser Yeah pretty much, the issue is definitely very deep rooted in colonialism. Though at the end of the day most minorities definitely still have strong identities. I mean in my case you'd think I'd have issues with my identity, my family is basically a group of turbo-mutts who range from olive complexions to dark brown but also don't really have many stereotypical "African" features such as wide, flat noses, big mouths/lips. Hell, some of my uncles and aunts even had straight hair and light colored eyes. We've always just identified as "Black" and that was always enough for me.

Saw an old post of yours regarding the White Nazi to Asian crossovers; maybe the idea has something to do having two xenophobic cultures and divvying up the world in the same way the Axis sought out to do? It's something I'm trying to figure out too since I'm more of a Constitutionalist, which sometimes has the same attraction to suits and standards but tends to be more moderate on matters of race. I don't know how things are in VA, but MD is strange in that bigots mix freely with more cosmopolitan elements; I got exposed to both worlds so my mindset is more like an R. Crumb tapestry on the subject.

gundamu
Otakaiser Eh, I think it has more to do with self-hate. To be frank there's just people of color from every ethnic group who are simply obsessed with being accepted by this majority white society we live in by distancing themselves from their own ethnic group and culture. I've seen this with black people, hispanic people, asians, islanders, basically everyone who isn't white at some point, it's just what happens when a minority lives in such a society. I mean it doesn't happen for everyone of course, but there's a lot of people who just grow up without a strong sense of identity and want to latch on to whatever is the most appealing. Which is in this case: Whiteness

Thank you! That’s grand, I lean towards Irish and Scottish mythology. Anything regarding Celtic history really, and yourself? Anything in particular? ^^
