White American: No Culture or Identity

Lance Remington Stuart Rood

Sometimes I feel like I have no identity. White american? what is that? Irish? German? Dutch? Danish? I want to be able to identify with those around me. I love learning about people. Their heritage, traditions and culture. By knowing someones race or races I can then proceed to ask about ones upbringing and their opinions on how they view the world. But when I try to learn and connect with people I get the ‘Oh, you’re white, you wouldn’t know or understand’. Then help me to understand! I’m not going to put you in a box so please don’t put me in a box. Every person is unique and deserves me to treat them with love! Please do the same to me!
