Oh, come on. Let's not pretend we're talking about white people here.

I think the American Tradition was updated to officially recognize Jews as full-fledged white people sometime in the 1970's.

Not in my mind. There's no way I'm the same race as some short, swarthy, wiry guy with goat hair.

Germany is expecting 500k migrants every year until 2020. Good luck with that.

Your mind is wrong then.

Americans have pretty much been racist against anyone who wasn't a WASP at some point in our history. You can find books from the early 1900s lambasting the waves of Scandinavians flooding our shores, polluting our lands with their blonde hair and blue eyes.

A question I've been mulling, I'm curious about how different cultures hold on to their distinctive cultural traits through generations in the US. I know an awful lot of first generation Chinese- and Indian-American kids who have intense battles with their parents over the filial piety issue, but it seems to almost universally disappear by the next generation. Most third generation Hispanic immigrants don't even speak Spanish. Are some cultural traits more enduring?

You see multi-generation Islamic kids in Europe that really don't share European values, but is that a ghettoization effect or something intrinsic to the culture? The Somali community in the US seems to have some trouble, largest number of ISIS supporters and such.


I wonder if anyone has looked into that kind of question in an accessible way. Thorny subject.

Food and cursing.

I think those things last the longest.
