Being White

If I had an ethnic base to identify from, if I was even Irish American, that would have been something formed, if I was a working-class woman, that would have been something formed. But to be a Heinz 57 American, a white, class-confused American, land of the Kleenex type American, is so formless in and of itself. It only takes shape in relation to other people.

From the blog Stuff White People Do (not to be confused with Stuff White People Like which is less social justice/racial introspective and more stereotypical)
