The ironic thing is the Nazis used the equivalent word "volk" all the time to refer to the German/Aryans people.

The irony of that fact was the point.

I'm annoyed that you made me reiterate this in an explicit fashion.

And they'll identify with ancestry more than white ... reap all of the benefits of whiteness
But in casual conversation it's all "My great grandfather came over from Poland" or yada yada
You can see forms of that in Damali's post

it has a sort of casualness to it that, yes, in many ways is authentic and endearing.....
but in other ways...the levity of it is rather demeaning....

I've also heard this a lot...white people do tend to zero in, with an almost jarring specificity, to their lineage (and there's a great deal of privilege tied to their ability to do so).... It's def. a flex IMO...

TBH the fact that you're even a mod here fits squarely within Jag's narrative of OK-sanctioned aggression, bullying, and toxicity. *shrug*

reminds me of people going out of their way to use spanish with someone hispanic. "amigo" can be extra pandering, or purposely dismissive.

or you could just be friends and you're fucking around.

19. "The Real Question Do They Consider Themselves To Be Europids?"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

It's amazing how caucasians basically adopted the race term white when "white" actually meant pure, holy, & without sin, when beforehand they were called "black" by other races and then gave the term "black" to their slaves.

Anyway, do you think they consider themselves caucasians or europids, is the real question.

No they/we do not refer to ourselves as white folks. Though that is a very southern term that I grew up with as a part of my vernacular, so I'm certain that white people do refer to other people, regardless of their race, as folks. As in, "those folks over there" and "those folks from thus and such County " etc.
