So who here wants to 'dominate' other races or thinks that 'whites' are superior to all other races?

I expect your worst case scenario is that some people want to ignore other races and think of some races as having innate tendencies. It's not the same thing as 'supremacist'.

What similarities, commonalities do those of European descent have with one another?

Language...No
Religion.....No
Geographic origin.....Not really
History.....No
Historical struggle.....No
Culture.......No

So what is it?

You know, if you want to hide something from a stupid person just put it under a stack of books.
Maybe the 'grand inquisitor' is an elected post in his local skin head lodge.

Looking back, I figure she has that kind of mindset.
You probably wouldn't have liked her anyway.

Bet she had other characteristics that would have been a giveaway if she hadn't told ya.

I want to be one, but why are Asians and Jews so much smarter than I am?
:-)
(How can one be Supreme when the entire populations of certain countries are massively ahead of the "whitest"?).......

Japanese average IQ is 105
Hong Kong = 109
Russian = 97

German, Norwegian, etc = 100

Strangely enough, Israel and Greece....often considered advanced for various reasons (Greeks developed western civilization, etc) are closer to 95.

(Note- IMHO, this is all proof positive of the EDUCATION and nurture angle....In Japan they made an actual national effort to be smarter, which involved things "real American men" would reject such as the way mothers and children bond and no spanking, allowing children leeway, etc.).

Those are massive differences over a population....somewhat the difference between "average" or "bright"....and even more important at the top end and when a society actually values those who are more supreme at certain work (medicine, research, engineering, etc)....

I can see a person being proud of THEIR family smarts or survival tendencies...even of a extended family and tribe. But my guess is that the majority of Americans "white suprematists" (Klan, Charlottesville Types, etc.) are either low intelligence or mentally unbalanced.

That doesn't mean there are not a million of them...of course.

I wouldn't have liked her. However, the fact that she thinks in such a way is sad. Obviously, the KKK won't let her in, and would go after her as quickly as they would go after me. On the other hand, her thinking of "white people are better than Black people" was every bit as disturbing.

What cultural similarities do Russians have with the Spanish? How about the the Greeks with the Finnish?

There are loads of non-Europeans who have a very fair complexion and plenty of Europeans who have a darker complexion. Its a meaningless to divide people as such.



Which further proves how idiotic the concept of being "white" actual is.
They're still Europeans and you're not. Is that the problem you have? I think so.

American Black as a construct holds up because of slave heritage. I.E. most people from slave heritage can't identify which countries their family came from the way that I can and there is a distinct cultural identity around that. It's also a different identity than someone who is Haitian or Nigerian with more recent immigration history.


My ethnic background is white - Ashkenazi Jewish, Puritan English, and Scandinavian. What similarities, commonalities, and affinity for each other do we have other than the way I offer sunscreen to similarly hued strangers at baseball games?

So you would consider Jews and Gypsies to be "white"?

But if I'm in the USA, or Australia or Canada then being a European-descendent has meaning.
What similarities?

In every example you give they have more in common with each other than non-Europeans which they have less in common. But were not talking about Europe. We are talking about Americans of European descent. You are example of what I'm talking about. You are in America and are not of European descent and have a very obvious bias against those that are.
