Genius.
You did when you brought white supremacists into the conversation. Do white supremacists not hate based on race anymore?

White supremacist hatred isn't limited to race. They also hate Jews, immigrants, gays, and communists.

You should know.

Its in all forms of our communication. From Sports to entertainment.

To name a few:

Basketball, Football, Baseball. super bowl every year.

Our holidays such as the 4th of July, Halloween, Labor day, etc..

Our music, from Hip hop to Rock & Roll, Jazz, Gospel, country etc..

Our food American breakfast such as Pancakes, waffles Cereal Eggs & grits, Ham etc

Our technology, Our fashion, our history,

American icons who also influence our way of life.

Its mind boggling if anyone needs to ask this question.

Its many things we export to other countries. Its things many nations also despise from us.

The question needs to be asked because it is impossible to pin down stereotypes and call that American culture.

What if someone hates sports, is a vegan, doesn't listen to music, and follows England culture and icons, yet was born and raised in Omaha, is that still "American culture?"

There is 310+ million people in this country, we are not a homogeneous country where you can slap a simple label on it and call it good.

That is hardly a comprehensive list.

Do you feel that any of these items are part of the American culture?

Kindergarten?
St. Patricks Day?
E Pluribus Unum?
Tacos?
Cinco de Mayo?
Movies like Blade II and Hellboy?
Musicians like Ricky Martin and Gloria Estefan?
Breakfast burritos?
Poi?

I thought the OP was clear, it belongs in the "complete idiot" forum, and this forum qualifies since lots of idiotic threads get posted here.
