I'm on another site that posts an abundance of bulletins. This one was a quiz to see how white one is. I thought it utterly ridiculous, but my point was to show that stereotypes are often stupid and wrong. I put my thoughts in parenthese after each stereotype. Thoughts and comments are welcome. According to this quiz, I would have been 40% white. [x] you go to a private school (because obviously other ethnicities can't afford to. My college is a private one, btw.) [ ] you watch the show laguna beach (I think this one just means I have good taste because I don't) [ ]you live in the suburbs (I know people who aren't white who do, and I have never lived in the ghetto) [x] you know what a poncho is (if you deal with rainy whether, you should know this regardless of race) [] you have heard of a band called panic! at the disco (there are other artists in other genres of music that I don't know as well. And disco?) [] you shop at american eagle/hollister (I guess they forgot to mention the Gap and Old Navy, cause that's obviously the only places whites shop- and yes, that was sarcasm) [ ] you play hockey (I don't play any sports) [ ] you have a dog that is NOT a pitbull (I?ve never owned pitbull. I own a German Shepard. In fact, out of the several dogs my family collectively has had, none ever owned a pitbull. We did have a Scottish Terrier once. How white of us.) [] you bend the bill of your hat (I don?t fancy hats) [] you own a pair of dc's/etnies/vans (I prefer K-Swiss myself) [ ] you would get jumped if you said the N**** word (personally, I don't think anyone should say that word) [x] you cant jump (rope, yes. In a basketball sense? No, and I'm black and tall) [ ] you have long hair(not braids) (again, you don't have to be white to have long hair... I have had it on occasion. And white women where extensions too) [] you say the word DUDE alot (I say "alot" alot) [x] you think cops are good (I only had a problem with a cop once- and he was black) [] you have absolutely no idea what Twista is sayin when he raps (he is at times hard to comprehend) [x] you listen to rock (I don't just listen to one genre) [x] you know who willie nelson is (I don't listen to his music, but he's been on several television shows) [x] your grandparents are over the age of 60 (you don't have to be white for this to be true) [x] your parents give you money when you ask (what does this have to do with being white, exactly? Are other parents allegedly too poor?)

AsianAmericanIdol: You're 100% correct- and I never repost those retarded chain bulletins. I got 40% NativeNewYorker: You only got 35% (you're supposed to multiply the number of X's by 5). And yea, there is a... way of saying the N word, but I don't think it's necessary in any form. However, I don't see it going away anytime soon.

If you're talking about the site I THINK you're talking about, it starts with an "M" and ends with an "e" and I'm on there, too. I get annoyed by a lot of the bulletins there, especially the ones that say "post this, and then delete anyone who won't repost if from your friends list." I NEVER pass those on, and have never been deleted for not doing so. No doubt whoever posted it just got it from someone else as well. I've never received the quiz that you mentioned, but I imagine I'd score pretty high on it due to the total lack of exposure to any other Asians where I live, and near total immersion in white and black culture.
