“We don’t have white culture”

Common white tendencies

South Africa

South Africa



Germany (Aryans only)


There is in addition no way to claim that white people don’t know that they are white or that they don’t think of themselves as white.


  1. Money quote from Macon’s “ask for suggestions” thread featuring the “We Want White Tenants In Our White Community” sign:

    White supremacy isn’t just a thing of the past, but too many white efforts to address “race” end up merely celebrating other races (and often in limited, simplistic, and patronizing ways), instead of addressing “whiteness” and its significance for ongoing inequities and injustices.

    And, quoted for contrast:
    “my blog is about “Stuff White People Do” – common white tendencies – and seeing beyond what’s invisible to them… isn’t something they tend to do.”

    Which translates as: “My blog isn’t about Whiteness, per se (you know it’s “invisible”). I talk about it but not at length. My blog is about Stuff White People Do, you know.”

    All duly noted.
