Actually, both white and non-white people start conversations. As this blog's readership has grown, I've been happy to start quite a few of them here.
I spent several hours this morning on a post about the differences between "race" and "ethnicity," but I'm currently in the clutches of that nasty, drooling, snarling beast, Writer's Block. Grrrrrrrrr.
Maybe enough people now read "stuff white people do" that I can try that common blogging feature, the "open thread." So here we go--please share whatever whiteness, or race-related, or otherwise-relevant thoughts you have in the Comments section. Suggestions for future posts would be great too.
In the meantime, here's a possible springboard for you--is this brief animated film an accurate summary of the history of white Americans?
