Buried culture

When I attended a human relations camp (Anytown) in the 70s as an advisor, I found that “culture night” consisted of sorting the various ethnic groups out and having them present their culture – all but the Whites, who served as the audience. I requested permission to do something on “White culture.” I found Greeks, Slovaks, Romanians, Italians, Irish, Swedes, and so on, MOST OF WHOM KNEW SOME LANGUAGE, FOLK SONGS, DANCES, RECIPES, etc. Those with no idea (so they said) of their ethnic background became the Heinz 57 group. Great success and became a regular feature of the camp from then on. (This was in Arizona)

    My employer required us to watch “diversity” videos which would have taught anyone who didn’t know better that all blacks are the same, all asians are the same, all latinos are the same, all women are the same, all homosexuals are the same, etc.

      Can you elaborate? All the same as in same as everyone else or same as all Asians are alike? Unclear.

        Stereotyping each group as if they are homogenous.
