White People, White Culture, Social construct

Barry Irving,

…History tells us that Whiteness has always been a social construct that is used to exclude certain groups… ( people of Color )
…The notion of White culture is a Myth…
…White People are not a single ethnic Group or a distinct number of ethnicities. They are an amalgamation of everyone who benefits from White Privilege and it’s boundaries are always shifting.
…Throughout History many groups considered White today were considered to be non White. In a similar vein, it is important to note that the term White has not always meant the same thing. Although W.A.S.P.S. have always benefited from that term in this country, virtually every other European Nation has been considered as lesser at some point…from Eastern Europeans ( poles, Ukrainians, Russians ) and Southern Europeans ( Italians, Greeks, Spaniards ) to long standing victims of Western persecution like Irish and the Jews.
