Cidiera,

Is that when you understood that you function as a White person?

So the way a person functions as a White person is to either mistreat darker people or witness darker people being mistreated?

Cidiera,

Besides practicing racism, what other behaviors help a person to function as White?

let me see...not sure if I have a great answer for that, but I will try my hardest.

First, I'm going to define your question as how I understand it so that you may understand why I answer the way I do.

Tell me if I am wrong, but basically you are implying that whiteness is not a person's race or heritage, but the function of a person in society? Basically, the role that person plays?

A white person's function in society is that of the oppressor.

So how you question is how do I behave that helps me to function as the oppressor? That is how I understand you question.

My answer is: Well, I keep my distance from non-whites...both physically, mentally and emotionally. I separate myself from them because of my fear of them. (jesus, I'm sounding like a real asshole. I'm not...really. I'm a very nice person...you guys bring out the worst in me. I usually try to suppress and ignore this horrible side of me) That's really all I do. I keep my distance and live in my little white town.
