      The social construction of "whiteness" bears serious thought and discussion.

      My high school sociology teacher defined subcultures as "they look funny, they talk funny, they eat strange food, and I wouldn't want one to marry my sister."  It was a very simplified summary of race/ethnicity for a roomful of adolescents, but it's stuck with me over time.
