Based on your statement a lot of ethnic whites wouldn't like you at all.

Is that still true though? I mean isn't Howard Dean a WASP? They might still run the Republican Party but I would think most WASPs in New England are Democrats or at least RINO's

Just thought i'd comment but to me a WASP is basically a white person with colonial ancestry, typically from the Northeast though there is definitely a southern variety.

To me if your ancestors came after about 1850 or so your'e not a WASP. So for example my mother's German Lutheran family would not be considered WASP's. Yes they are protestant and white but they are pretty ethnic in the sense they are relatively recent. Not quite White ethnics but close enough. My dad's family is definitely not WASP's since we are farmers who came from Czechoslovakia and are Catholic. I feel a little more solidarity with white ethnics even though I grew up in rural conservative nebraska

How about White Anglo preppies from Orange County or elsewhere in Southern California like in the tv show The O.C ?
