How White are you?
« on: February 01, 2012, 07:27:47 pm »
Apparently according to Charles Murray of the American Enterprise Institute,  I am not in-tune with White Culture.  http://www.proprofs.com/quiz-school/story.php?title=how-thick-is-your-bubble

Okay, starting up the quiz.  I'm predicting I'm gonna come up pretty white on this.  Were I any more whitebread, I'd have Wonder tattooed on my forehead in big red letters.

EDIT:  10 out of 20.  A little surprised.

On a scale from 0 to 20 points, where 20 signifies full engagement with mainstream American culture and 0 signifies deep cultural isolation within the new upper class bubble, you scored between 5 and 8.

In other words, you can see through your bubble, but you need to get out more.

Personal opinion: bullshit. Jobs that are painful, being in parades, and having friends who have political differences or don't do well in school are not white-only phenomena.

This quiz is such bullshit. Apparently this asshat thinks that "white culture" depends on how much you conform to the stereotype of a WASP.

Don't tell me what to do, asshole.

Apparently I have an upper class bubble. Well, that is a joke! Class ain’t got a thing to do with any isolation I might have!

So you aren’t engaged if you don’t watch NASCAR or Oprah? ::)

I got the same thing Smurfette got. I really don't understand how these things are "white" things?? But this is some jackass from AEI trying to sell his dumb ass book. Also I don't know if any of you guys know it, but AEI is a thinktank that is somewhat conservative in nature, so this bs isn't all that shocking.

I got a 5/20, apparently, I "need to get around more."  This thing needs more options, if nothing else...have I been to a parade or rally that wasn't a gay pride parade or such?  I've never been to a parade or rally, period.  Seriously, never.

But, I'm gonna join the chorus and call this test pure and utter bullshit.  I don't give a fuck about race...I'm white, I'm American, but that shit don't matter.  I'm human.

I care about race because it's a matter of heritage, but seriously, this guy's an ass. Are gay people suddenly not white?

Y'know what's weird? I got 4 out of 20, but the thing at the bottom says I got between 5 and 8.


Of course, any score I get is meaningless because the questions are designed with the assumption that the taker is American.

4/20, but the result was:

I'll admit I was confused with a few of the questions on whether to say yes or no on.

On a scale of one to shit test, this comes out pretty well on the shit test end of things. If someone has a fridge stocked with mass amounts of some shitty beer, do you really expect them to remember what a nascar driver looks like? If so they are not watching the race correctly.

I wish I knew why this thing bugged me so much. I usually don’t get this angry over something so trivial.
